God did not make us to be eaten up by anxiety, but to walk erect, free, unafraid in a world where there is work to do, truth to seek, love to give and win. —Joseph Fort Newton—
Today stands before us with promise. It invites us to fully participate in experiences. That we are alive, that we stand present facing this day, guarantees that we are qualified to handle every challenge that snags our attention. And we need have no fear. The world and all that’s in it is spirit -full. We are safe and secure if we’d but believe it.
When we look toward the day with confidence, we tap the inner strength that is ever-preset. The more frequently we turn to this strength, the less often we are haunted by pangs of anxiety. Our trust in that strength heightens our faith and our understanding that all is well—always and forever all is well.
Giving up fear offers us a freedom that will exhilarate us. Faith, trust, confidence will ready us for any challenge, all experiences.
Nothing needs to make me fearful today. I am here. Therefore, God is here too.
