“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Psalm 4:2

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Children of men,

how long will you be heavy of heart,

why love what is vain

and chase after illusions?

.

– Psalm 4:2 (JB)

.

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

How true!

We all get those moments

of heaviness of heart

– sometimes lasting

much more than just moments.

.

Why?

A thousand reasons…if we try justifying.

Wrong reasons, most of them…

if we are honest with ourselves!

.

Whatever it is that is causing our sadness, our anxiety, our anger, or our panic,

if we call out to God

– who is always there, right beside us –

He will help expose our illusions

and, if we cooperate with Him,

we will overcome our vanities and our weaknesses.

.

He gives us consolation and lasting peace

but we need to trust in Him

and do as He tells us.

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Lord, increase my faith and trust in You.

More of You, Lord, and less of me!
