Prayer for the Day:
Thank you, Lord, that my heart and my feelings matter to you. They always have . . . but now it’s beginning to sink in. It’s one thing to believe it in your head – quite another to discover this is true. Thank you that I can invite you into the midst of any upsetting situation and you quiet me with your presence and affirm our relationship together. Remind me that I am loved and accepted even when I’m upset. Your comfort allows me to see things from Your perspective and not the pain-clouded perceptions of my distress. I am overwhelmed by your goodness!
Question for reflection:
Have there been times when you felt that God disregarded your pain and your struggles? How did you feel? What is God calling you to do in difficult situations?
