Life can get hard. There are times when we are so tempted to throw it all away. "Give up" repeats over and over in our mind. We try to pray but the words get swallowed by obsessive thinking. But God! God has not left. He is nearer than your own breath and with a change of focus we can see things differently. The author of Hebrews comes right out and tells us that what we need at times like this is patient endurance. God has promised that He will never leave us or forsake us. He says that He hears our prayers so we pray. And we wait. Again the author of Hebrews writes, "So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you!" So today trust! Be patient. Wait. He is here. Continue to do His will. You will receive what He has promised.
Dear Father, thank you for caring for me. Help me to be patient and to endure. Thank you that I can trust in Your never failing love. In Jesus' name, amen.
