S: “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” http://bible.us/John16.33.NIV
O: So many times, Christians…believers in these very words and those of us of “unshakeable” faith fall into the snares of anxiety and fear. I think these feelings are natural to feel at first as long as we don’t forget the words above.
A: I know it’s easy for me to get bogged down with worry after worry after worry, especially as a leader, a father and a husband (that usually means worry∞).
P: Father God, thank You for Your comforting words, for Your heartfelt and honest wisdom and for those counselors, protectors and friendships that You have placed in my life. Please continue to flood my heart with your knowledge and love so that I may be an example that one wants to seek “what I’m on” to help lead them to You. Amen.
