I have been pretty worried and anxious about driving the van at work. Yesterday, I rode a long with my co worker who is quitting but I haven’t driven it yet. My first day to drive it all by myself will be Monday
Sometimes I work myself up more than I should and put danger into situations that are not dangerous. This is what I have been doing about this new assignment to drive the van.
To help myself calm down about it, I got a couple of blessings, one from my son a few days ago and one from my husband today. I have also been praying fervently for help. Since I have been doing this and reading my scriptures I have felt a great sense of peace. I decided that faith + prayer = peace.
In my scripture study today i ran avcross the scripture found in Isaiah 41:10 which reads: ” Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.”
I have always hear that fear is the opposite of faith but it wasn’t until I practiced faith and prayer and got a great sense of peace that I understood what that meant. I am sure I will be a bundle of nerves on Monday as I drive the van route for the first time alone but as long as I trust in God and have a prayer in my heart I know everything will be ok.
