Fear not, for I am with you
As kids the games of peek-a-boo and hide-and-go-seek were fun. It was the anticipation of the unknown. When would the “boo” come? When would we be found?
Tomorrow is the big day for tricks and mostly treats that every kid anticipates for months on end. It’s mostly about the dressing up and the treats.
Somehow when we dress up and hit the adulting stage, the treats become our comfort as we’re wondering when the “boo” will come.
Though chocolate is nice and there’s plenty of research touting its benefits, it doesn’t really bring true comfort and hope.
Comfort is found in knowing that we don’t have to fear the “boo” when it does come. And come it will, at one time or another.
And when it does?
There’s no need to fear. He is with me.
There’s no need to be dismayed. He is my God.
There’s no need to be strong. He will be my strength.
He will hold me up with His righteous right hand.
Yes, chocolate is great, but Jesus is so very much better!
