John 6:19-20, Hebrews 13:15-17, 20-21, Mark 6:30-34

John 6:19-20
They were frightened, but He said to them, "It is Me; don't be afraid.:

Thank You my Beloved for these most comforting words.  All my fears for those I love and for whom I pray daily that they may return to the fold are groundless.  You hear and You want their salvation even more than I do and so I need not be afraid for You are always near.
Hebrews 13:15-17, 20-21

In today's epistle, we are reminded that we must be continually offering praise to God through You  as we work for the coming of Your Kingdom as well as for our temporal needs. You have to be right in the center of all we do. All You ask of us is to strive to conform to Your will always, to be obedient and humble and live in Your shadow and we will be bear good fruit, fruit that will last, fruit that will glorify You.

Mark 6:30-34

Beloved, here again we are reminded that we do not work in isolation, independent of You, rather we have to review our work with You, find out where we were wrong, correct our mistakes in humility and glorify You for the things we did right through grace and which were pleasing to You.  It is important to spend time alone with You.  Through prayer, You tell us what You require of us this will help us not to follow our own agenda.   We need to rest in Your Holy Spirit, only then can we go out armed with Your grace and strength to minister to others with Your graciousness, gentleness and compassion.
