I use it when the dentist looms over me with Novocain.
I use it when the airplane hits turbulence and I’m convinced we’re going to crash.

I am the place where God shines through.
For He and I are One not two.
I may not fear, nor fret, nor plan,
He wants me where and as I am.

With Your help, I will
make the most of my day.
I won't disappoint me,
or more importantly,
"DO YOU HAVE A CHILDHOOD PRAYER YOU REMEMBER?"
You Are There
