God I look to You. Pick up your cell phone. Read the above verse and then listen to the empowering words that remind us to look to Him to be our strength and your song! Spend a moment in pure and undistracted words of praise to tour Heavenly Father. Soak it all in and let the Lord’s presence lead you through this day.
Lord, I am weary and don’t know when this “race” will end in my life. I feel like I’ve been running forever, trying to outrun this trial. Help me to stop trying to outrun my pain but rather run with endurance the race you have set before me. I know that because of you I am ultimately a victor over the trials in my life. I know that nothing in this world can separate me from your steadfast love. Please give me a measure of your love today; give me the strength to endure this trial. Thank you for your love for me that never ends! And thank you for the crown of joy that awaits me forever in your Kingdom! Amen.
