Dear God, you have blessed me with energy and optimism. Even in the face of adversity, when fear overtakes me and I worry what will befall me, there is, deep within me, an understanding that you will carry me. The outcomes may not be what I would choose for myself, but they will be according to your plan.

Lord, let me share faith today. Let my actions reflect what I know to be true – your care and guidance of me – and not my illusory fears. I build worry up in my mind almost out of habit, though I have no evidence that calamity has ever come my way.

Let me, Lord, live by the faith I know. Let me not crowd it out with activity, motion, and dissipation. Let me act with purpose, your purpose. Let this be a beacon to those around me. Your love and energy are available to all, our birthright as human beings.

Let me carry joy today, the joy of living and acting under your dominion.

(Letter #1010)
