Invite Your Audience Carefully

Fix-It With Fran

Since beginning my podcast, I have had to think a good bit about “my audience” and how much I invite my readers and listeners into my life and world.

This past week, I went to complete my MSW Licensure paperwork and saw this poem posted on the wall of the DPS worker’s desk.  She’s a pro at people asking for copies and had one ready for me to take (Thanks Ms. Nancy!).  The author is unknown, but I wanted to share here on the blog.

If you’ve been reading or listening to me for any measure of time, you know how I feel about friendships and associations.  This hits the nail on the head.

Anxious for Nothing – Max Lucado


Dear Lord,

You spoke to storms. Would You speak to ours?

You calmed the hearts of the apostles. Would You calm the chaos within us?

You told them to fear not. Say the same to us.

We are weary from our worry, battered and belittled by the gales of life.

Oh Prince of Peace, bequeath to us a spirit of calm.

Quench anxiety. Stir courage.

Let us know less fret and more faith.

In Your name, Amen.


Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6‭-‬7 AMPC
