The Lord is my keeper. He comforts me in my time of troubles. He guides me and directs me. The Lord is faithful. He is faithful in spite of my weaknesses, fears, doubts, and disobedience. The Lord is my comforter and my provider. The Lord has placed desires within my heart to do things that I fear doing. However, He will be glorified in my obedience and submission unto Him. I have anxiety at times and stand still in fear of the what? how? who? when? and why? When these thoughts take over I have stopped trusting in the Lord in order to find my own solution. This is wrong and shows my lack of faith. Plus – it never works out well. In my own intelligence, wit, planning, and scheming I never meet my goal. I always miss the mark, and will surely disappoint myself and those around me. However, when I trust in the Lord I find peace.
The Bible recounts Jesus’ words about worrying in Matthew 6:25 -34 ESV.
God is always sure to show me that HIS will will be done and that I only need to petition Him to find my answers and peace.
I hope that this will encourage you.

Lord, thank you for always caring for my needs. Thank you for being my provider and my strength. Father, keep my eyes focused on you and your will for me alone as I journey through this life. Let me not stray into my own will and desires forsaking the truth. Thank you for your grace and mercy when I forget who you are, and whose I am. Thank you, Father, for loving me.
