Folded inside my Bible are some pages of old, marked and tattered paper with scripture based prayers and faith declarations printed on them. One of those is based on the verse above. I wrote it in my own words like this, "I will not give into fear, evil foreboding and anxious thoughts, but I will have a glad heart, resulting in a continual feast, regardless of circumstances."
Some years back, we went through a long "Job season". It seemed that in every area of our life what could go wrong went wrong. Legal problems, financial problems, relational problems, on every hand we faced loss and turmoil. I became nervous and anxious. I suppose some would label it post traumatic stress. I became afraid to check the mail or answer the phone. A sense of evil foreboding became my constant companion. I wondered when the "other shoe would drop", the next problem arise.
