"Fear thou not"

I enjoy being on the swim team, but I didn't enjoy it when the first meet came up. I had a bad feeling in my stomach because I wanted to do a good job in the meet I was scared I couldn't.

A couple of hours before the meet, I remembered that my Christian Science Sunday School teacher had taught me a verse from the Bible (Isa. 41:10): "Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness." When I thought about it, I felt better, because I knew that God would uphold me.
