My reflection today is from Living Faith:
However, take care and be earnestly on your guard not to forget the things with your own eyes have seen it… Deuteronomy 4:9
“Last year at this time, one of my adult kids was at the beginning of what would be a rather difficult three months of his life. No, it wasn’t the worst experience anyone could have, but it was certainly challenging, and there was not a thing I could do about it, given the circumstances and given that I was thousands of miles away. Nothing!
What to do? Well, I spent a lot of time praying that the situation would change. But… it didn’t. And it became clear that it probably wouldn’t. So maybe it was time for my prayer to change. I prayed that in this difficulty, my son would grow, learn and become nearer to God – that all he’d learned, what he’d seen of God‘s faithfulness and love in the past, would not be forgotten,￼ and through it all, if nothing else, he’d grow closer to God. And maybe I would too.
God, I trust in your love for me. Draw me closer to you today, through good times and bad. Amy Welborn
God is always with us no matter what we are going through. God gives us the strength to go on each day.
