"When they lead you away and hand you over, do not worry beforehand about what you are to say. But say whatever will be given to you at that hour. For it will not be you who are speaking but the holy Spirit."
How easy it is to say, “don’t worry,” but how difficult it is to put that into practice! If you’re worried about something difficult you have to do, pray with trust that God will be with you and will give you the courage to do it with confidence in Him.
