A few years ago, I read Calm My Anxious Heart by Linda Dillow. Every once in a while, I pull the book off my shelf and read a few pages. Today was one of those times …..
The Lord is my peace. I shall not live in anxiety. He puts me under His wing of comfort and calms my spirit within me. He takes all my anxieties on Himself and helps me to focus on Him. Yes, though I walk through a time of grave uncertainties and fierce anxieties, I will not fret – for You are my peace. Your Word and Your presence calm me now. You hold my uncertainties in the palm of Your hand. You sooth my anxious mind – You smooth my wrinkled brow. Surely serenity and trust in You shall fill me all the days of my life. And I shall keep my mind stayed on Your forever. (page 204)
“You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! (Isaiah 26:3, NLT)
