A great poem for those feeling the pressures of life or exams from are very own Careen Bailie…

When you feel fears arising and you P-A-N-I-C,

Call on the Lord to help restore peace and security.

Replace the P for panic with P for Prayer and Peace,

Remove the A for anxious that Assurance may increase.

Discard the N for nervous, reflect on N for Near,

For God is right beside you, so what have you to fear?

Replace the I for insecure with I for Inner-healing,

Allow the Lord to take away the fear that you are feeling.

And as He floods your soul with peace, like a soothing balm,

Surrender C, for your concerns, to replace with C for Calm.

Philippians 4: 5,6,7

The Lord is near.  Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

 

Deuteronomy 31:8

The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.  Do not be afraid, do not be discouraged.
