There are days more difficult than others to face the world. Today is one of those days my heart wishes to avoid all and retreat to the center of my soul where only You are found.
This morning, as the sky is filled with gray clouds and the rain pours down, my anxiety rises, sadness begins to weigh upon me. I anticipate how stormy and rainy days such as this affect my being.
I cry out to You, “Jesus, do not abandon me to the storms which rage around and within me!” Before a moment begins to pass, You fill me with Your peace. I know You are close, right beside me. You will walk with me this day. Your love will sustain me. I know this day will not be easy, but I can rest in the peace of knowing my Savior, my God will not leave my side.
I rise, filled with Your strength. I have the certainty of knowing whatever may pass, my Lord is with me. He will keep me afloat.
My heart, my soul cries out with joy — I am a beloved child of God, who knows the love of the Father, the mercy of the Son and the peace of the Holy Spirit!
