|Scary storm damage|
After a storm has blown things around in the backyard, Sampson is afraid to go out there. Maybe he's remembering the scary storm noises from the night before, or maybe it's just that things look so different to him. I tell him I wouldn't let him go out there if it wasn't safe, but he still doesn't understand. So I have to go with him. Even though it doesn't look that different to me, from Sam's perspective this yard has completely changed and no longer looks safe.

|Scary stray cat|
And now Kevin's gone Home, and he's waiting on me there. Life looks and feels very different and scary to me. But if I try to think about it from God's perspective, and know that He's going with me with every step I take, maybe I don't have to be afraid. It still feels like I can't do it. But then I remember:
What time I am afraid, I will trust in Thee. Psalm 56:3.

Do you have a verse you repeat to yourself when you are scared or stressed? Feel free to share it in the Comments if you do.
