One of my hope this year is that I don't allow fear (of the unknown, of the task at hand, etc) hold me back from anything this year. I have so many hopes and goals, but I often get scared because they are new- and what if I fail? But I love this verse because it reminds me of the simple truth, that the Lord is always with me & loves me. And if he is for me, no scary unknown (or anything else) can come against me. So I'm stepping out in faith, and pursuing my dreams, because I know that I have the ultimate companion right there with me! May this be an encouragement as you head into your week too!
