Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
The beginning of the year has been a trying time for people I care about. Maybe it’s been that way for you or those you love. My prayer for you, and for them, is that they may know the comfort of God’s presence. Whether it’s the popular little poem “Footprints” or the familiar “Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for thou art with me,” the presence of the Lord is absolutely vital to standing up against our anguish! The Lord does long to be with us, especially at those moments when we feel most alone. He told us that by experiencing anguish, alone, by himself on the cross.
