Recently, I knew I was going to be facing a challenge.
I anticipated fear as an unwelcome component of the challenge.
My prayer request to many of my friends was the same—pray that I would not be afraid.
God answered my prayer and theirs.
In meeting the challenge, I found that God carried me through the entire thing.
Fear was not gripping me in its hold.
I felt at peace.
The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?
