Comfort from Fear

“For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received

a spirit of adoption.”

Romans 8:15 NRSV


It separates me from You, God.

I guard my fears,

telling myself and others how they are justified.

While guarding my fears,

I allow time to slip in and rob me

of Your tender gifts:

A day of health.

The face of my friend.

The comfort of touch.

Give me one thing more;

Infuse me with Your Spirit

that I may attend to Your many gifts.

Forgive my fear.

Restore me to gratitude.
