Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Isn't it absolutely wonderful that the God who made the universe cares about us and our needs, hurts, anxieties, and fears?! So let's trust that he will do what is best for us and show that trust by living for him, loving him, and seeking to live out his purpose in our life (Romans 8:28-29).

My Prayer...

Loving Father and Almighty God, I consciously place all my anxieties, worries, cares, and frustrations into your hands. I will need the Holy Spirit's help as I do my best not to dwell on them and seek to trust that you will do what is best for me and for those I love. In Jesus' name, I thank you for this promise and ask for your help in receiving this grace. Amen.
