"Dear Child, I am here, right beside you. You don't have to be afraid, for I will never, under any circumstance, leave or forsake you. There is great power in fear, but it is only powerful to the one who wields it. For those caught in the "grip of fear," there is nothing like it. Fear comes directly from evil. It is tortuous to the mind, and can even cause the heart to die.
"I don't bring fear, I never meant for my children to even know fear. It, like most things, is something you can take or leave. I prefer you leave it. That defeats the enemy. If he can't scare you, his powers are useless against you. I gave you the spirit of love, and power, and a sound mind. Those spirits are really all you need. A sound mind shouldn't bow to fear. Fear is always a lie. Always!
"I remind my children constantly that I am with them, but they go on their way rarely stopping to realize they are alive, clothed, housed, and fed. They forget to notice the beauty around them. I don't bring the sun up with a glorious sunrise and then go away until evening when it sets! No, not at all. I am everywhere you turn.
"I am the blue in the sky. I am the breeze in your hair whispering "I love you." I am the ripple on the water, and the flower whose fragrance gathers your attention. I am the bark on the mighty oak, shielding it from the battering elements. I am the sand beneath your toes on a warm beach, and I am each snowflake that glides down from the heavens. I am a sweet drizzle and a hailing monsoon. I am a whisper on the wind and the howling gales. I am your smile because your heart is happy. I am each tear you shed. They are so precious to Me that I collect them and keep them in a jar.
"I am the cloud that gives you relief on that hot summer day. I am that little puppy that melts your heart. I am that rock outcropping where you can rest on your climb. I am the roar of the ocean's waves. I am the mountain you moved close to so you could enjoy its beauty and majesty.
"I am the sun and the moon, and the stars. All that I created is from a part of Me. It is all my design.
"Child, My Spirit is within you. I never leave you. I wouldn't want to, you are valuable to Me and I want to protect you. I am not just sitting beside you when you are at death's door, I am walking each step with you, dreaming each dream, resting, running, jumping, climbing, all of it. I am even in the gym with you.
"So shake off your fears and your doubts. You are a child of the Most High God, the Commander of the Heavenly Armies! You will never fight alone. I have gone into battle before you, and I have declared victory! There is nothing to be afraid of, I am here!"
