His Presence

“…do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7



My friend’s young son was frightened to be in any room by himself. His parents and grandparents tried to help him get over this fear.   Once, when his grandmother was keeping him, he said "Grandmommy, I can't go into the bathroom by myself."


She said, "You'll be fine. Remember, Jesus is with you."


He went into the bathroom, closed the door, and called out immediately, "Grandmommy, will you please come in here with me and Jesus?"


God has commanded us not to be anxious, but instead to tell Him what we need.  He has promised us His peace.  Realizing Jesus' presence in our lives will drive away fear and discouragement that try to overcome us.


His presence is the greatest comfort of all! 


Have a great day, and keep moving forward!
