We rarely make good decisions when we are sick or tired or hungry. When we aren’t at our best, the smallest inconvenience can seem like the biggest problem. Our stress and anxiety in life is unfortunately driven by our perception of our current situation instead of the realities of our entire life. The reality is that our life may not always be what we want it to be but it is more often much better than we deserve and can even imagine. We have a God that loves us and protects us and cares for us, and all in despite of anything else that may go on in our life.
Lord, in a world that is full of pain and challenges and conflict and uncertainty, thank you for be a God of peace and love and comfort and joy.
