I am responsible for my own happiness and peace of mind. When I relax in prayer, I feel the presence of God within and around me. I find peace in the awareness that the spirit of God, the eternal Comforter, is with me always.
Knowing I am never alone gives me strength. The assurance of ever-present help increases my joy. I take this knowledge into every part of my life. If I am paying bills, seeing a doctor, tending to a loved one, or watching the news, I am comforted by God's presence. My worries dissipate and my fears dissolve. I know that wherever I am, God is. This is the greatest comfort of all.
I will turn their mourning into joy, I will comfort them, and give them gladness for sorrow. --Jeremiah 31:13
