"I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for He is right beside me."
Guess what? Every single thing we go through, no matter how alone we feel, we ALWAYS have a companion. God keeps us with Him and doesn't want us to carry our struggles alone. He doesn't want us to be afraid of what might happen, He wants us to remember His name and how strong we are in it. My cousin always used to say you "can't be scared." Let me tell you, the amount of times that saying has given me the courage to go for something blows my mind. He was killed in a car accident at twenty-one years old and his ginormous, fun-loving heart is missed every single day by so many people. He lived fearlessly and loved fiercely, the way God wants us to. I remember hearing so many stories about him and how he made friends everywhere he went and would always be the first person to help someone out when they needed it. I remember thinking, man, he really wasn't afraid of much and just realizing that life is too short to be taken so seriously. It opened my eyes to how fragile and uncertain our time here is and how much of a shame it is to waste so much of that worrying about things that God already has worked out for us. Look to God when you feel like you don't know where to go and He will show you the way. God's got you, babe, live your life!!
