The protective power of God is always mine to call upon. If I begin to feel off balance or unsafe, I pause to move into a time of sacred prayer. I breathe deeply, place my hand on my heart, and quietly affirm: My divinely inspired wisdom and compassionate love guide me and others at all times. I am safe.
Whether tending to tasks, working at my job, or traveling on vacation, I may move through a range of emotions as I encounter situations that challenge me. No matter what is happening around me, I can respond from a peaceful place within me and remain anchored in spiritual principle.
Protect me, O God, for in you I take refuge.—Psalm 16:1
