"Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me."
Psalm 23:4

I can’t recall the first time I had a problem dissolve into nothing. It was a gradual process of learning to trust the Lord.

Issues I face now no longer have the same effect on me as when I became obsessed with them.

I am not any smarter or more intelligent than I was when I struggled with complicated situations. The difference is that all I have to do is be aware of His presence and become an observer as I fellowship with Him.

The biggest obstacle was overcoming the impression that I was being irresponsible because I didn’t do anything.

The peace I have when I am in communion with Him is beyond explanation so it seems miraculous when problems disappear.

I pray for a more consistent awareness of Him in every situation and a greater confidence in His ability to solve my dilemmas.
