I haven’t really been feeling very deep lately.
The LORD is the stronghold of my life – of whom shall I be afraid? But fear, we do.
Faithful and loving God, we continue to marvel in your willingness to take our burdens from us.
It’s election day in America. We have much to be thankful for – and much to confess.
Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean. ~ John Muir
I can forget I am but a drop of rain rather than the ocean.
I lift up my eyes to the hills –
from where will my help come?
The freedom we have as people of God is to not live in fear. Like Job, we have the freedom to rail against God for the things that are not our fault and we don’t understand. And in this freedom, somehow, we are able to find peace in our not knowing.
As we pray for our country and our leaders this July 4th, may we pray for them as individuals as well as in their official capacity. As we give thanks for our freedom, may our prayers include freedom for all peoples.
Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore, love is the fulfilling of the law. – Romans 13:10
