Psalm 112:7-8a Much of my professional life is spent trying to avert or work through emergency situations.  I've come to realize that's carried over to my personal life, robbing me of too much joy.  I don't think I've ever had this kind of year verse before, but here it is from the NIV - Psalm 112:7-8a  "He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.  His heart is secure, he will have no fear."

2 Timothy 1:7-9 "For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, or of me His prisoner. Rather, join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God. He has saved us and called us to a holy life -- not because of anything we have done but because of His own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time."
Dorothy Anderson
