But I am trusting you, O Lord. I said, “You alone are my God; my times are in your hands.” Psalm 31: 14 TLB
God opens our hearts to welcome the blessing of each new day. Sometimes we wake in strength; ready to welcome ALL He provides, eager to praise the love of His faithfulness and prepared to welcome His peace. But sometimes we wake feeling fragile when worry opens our eyes.
There’s a reason God wants us to call on Him before we choose to rise. He helps us remember WHY we need Him. He arms us with opportunities to witness the power of love and provides STRENGTH to keep on going...
The Bible says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” Proverbs 3: 5. We don’t have to figure out everything on our own. And we don’t have to worry about what’s to come. God is with us! As we trust in Him, He will show how to handle our days.
If we take time to consider we are blessed, God will fill us full of everything we need. And as we surrender our worries, He will remind us who is working for the good. We must seek Him before we choose to rise. He will help us welcome His strength. He is God! He will show us amazing things as we remain faithful and begin each day with the prayers of our praise!
Dear God, Thank you! You know our hearts. You see what hinders our ability to focus on YOU. Help us remember to trust in the timing of Your will. Show us how to receive PEACE in Your presence, as we learn to cope with hope. Thank you, Lord. There will never be a day without the love of Your faithfulness. It gives us such comfort and strength. Thank you for loving us through ALL things. Amen
