Prayer for the Day:
God I come to you today in need of your patience and grace. I want to trust you with every bit of my being, but I find it hard. Because there is so much in life I’m expected to manage and be responsible for, I often lose perspective and forget where my management and responsibility ends. I want to place more of my trust in you. I will try to place more of my trust in you. Sing in my soul today the hymn-writer’s refrain “On Christ, the solid rock, I stand; all other ground is sinking sand, all other ground is sinking sand!” (“My hope is built on nothing less,” #343 Hymnal: A Worship Book)
Question for reflection:
What in your life constitutes an area of “sinking sand?” How might you step from this sinking sand to the solid rock of Christ?
