I was afraid of the unknown.
Then having to make a life-changing decision, the realisation that God is not only in Heaven but everywhere. Wherever I am to go, God will already be there and will also be my companion on the way.
When my morning walk takes me to a quiet mist covered lagoon God is there.
Also when I've crossed wide oceans, God is with me on the way and there when I arrive in a strange new environment.
Knowing God is my companion gives me peace and helps me cope with life's problems.
