Lord, you are the foundation of my life. Because of you, I stand and remain secure. There’s no fear here, for in you alone I place my trust.
I don’t know what tomorrow holds, but it doesn’t matter; for when
“tomorrow” comes, you will already be there waiting for me, reaching out with your big, comforting hand of love. You will walk me through the darkness of the unknown. Your hand will keep me steady and sure. With our hands clasped together, there will be no foe big enough or strong enough to conquer me; with you, I am more than a conqueror.
It is your hand that guides me daily into all my tomorrows. This knowledge brings great comfort to my soul. Whether you are leading me to quiet waters, or raging rivers; pastures green, or barren fields; lush lowlands, or dark shadowy places, I will not fear. For in the end, I will find that wherever you lead, you always have my soul’s prosperity in mind.
How can I fear tomorrow? As one writer said, “I know who holds
tomorrow, and I know who holds my hand.” It is you, JESUS, lover
of my soul! You are already there!
”I will fear no evil, for you are with me.” Psalm 23:4b
After much reading, both from the Word and here at FaithWriters, and much prayer, I was still feeling a little weary... bad dreams two nights in a row and I just do not have bad dreams, ever! This was just what I needed. It was perfect. God is so timely!
