The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. (Isaiah 58:11)
During this time of such great sadness and turbulence in our world, each morning this verse causes me to pause. A calm descends reflecting on this image of an eternal source, our God and faith, which provides hope for the day.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for your powerful presence in our lives. For the many promises in your word that carry us through hard times. And for the incredible joy we experience in the body of Christ as we care for each other. In Jesus name. Amen
