I filled up the car with gas today. As I pulled out of the gas station, I felt good.
I am prepared. I have a full tank of gas. I don’t have to worry.
How does that saying go? “If ye are prepared, ye shall not fear.” D&C 38:30. How true, how true!
Having a full tank of gas keeps me from worrying about having to watch for a place to fill up, hoping that I can get there before running out, and I know that wherever my life leads, I can get there.
And why do I say I’ll never run out of gas? Because i fill the tank when it’s only half empty. By filling up then, I know I won’t run out. And that is a great feeling.
The added benefit to filling up at half a tank…
it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. For the same few dollars that one might put in hoping to get along until pay day, one can “limp along” with nearly a full tank!
Instant stress reduction! 🙂
