God has a deeply personal interest in you and your life. When you are in the midst of trouble, God is ready to uphold you and carry you through. When you allow yourself to be overwhelmed by the worries of life, God wants to take these burdens from you. You don’t have to go it alone because you have a God of unimaginable love and power who is there with you, knowing your doubts and fears.
—Patricia Wilson, Freedom from Worry: 28 Days of Prayer (Upper Room Books, 2013)
