"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." (2 Timothy 1:7)
|Be at peace; God is watching over you|
We all feel apprehension about these events, especially when they affect us personally. But because we have a loving Heavenly Father, we needn't feel fear about the future. As long as we are doing our best to keep the commandments and follow Him, He will watch over us. This doesn't mean we will always be kept from sickness or sorrow, but we will be kept from the consequences that afflict those who sin.
We all sin. Repentance is the power by which we obtain forgiveness for sins. God blesses us with 'power', 'love' and 'a sound mind'. These godly attributes enable us to overcome temptation and serve others. When we exercise these attributes, we discover joy.
