God calls to us, "Do not fear."
Come, you strong and courageous.
Come, you terrified and afraid,
for the Lord our God will go with us wherever we go.
God reassures us, "Do not worry."
Come, trusting in the Lord with all your hearts
and trying not to lean on your own understanding.
"Look," says God, as God points to the breadth
of God's faithfulness.
Come, and wait for the Lord.
"I'm the same God," says our God.
Come and find your refuge and strength in God,
who is an ever-present help in times of trouble.
Let us worship God.
