Joshua 1:9

"Have not I commanded thee?  Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest."
Joshua 1:9

This is a good thing to remember today. :)  God is with us wherever we are, whenever we need him.  When we are doing what the Lord has asked us to do... including our day-to-day work and normal interactions with people... the Lord is always there, helping us.  We only have to ask for what we need.  Some things, of course, are harder than others... but the Lord is there to help you with *anything* at all.  he can soften hearts, or help you know what to say... he can give you what you need to help you make a decision.  He's concerned about even the smallest details of your life, and wants to help.  Sometimes it is hard to let him in... let him help us.  It requires some humility and some vulnerability.  It requires us to ask for help, and sometimes to face things that we don't want to face... but the Lord is there, always offering.  And, when we accept his help, our lives will go SO much better than we can make them ourselves.  We dream too small... we want to be good and cool... he can make us perfect. :)  So, no being dismayed today... God is there to help us.  No worries. :)
