Some days I feel like I can do all things through your bounty and grace. There are also days when I feel overloaded with worry. I think a lot about those I love – family, dear friends, those who are unable to get around. I wish that I could help them in some way. I know that you invite me to come to you with all my concerns, but then I think I might be asking too much, or burdening you with my problems.
Then I realize that you are in charge of all things. You’re fully aware of the plans for our lives. You created the blueprint a long time ago. You knew then, what we’d be able to handle. You knew that the road wasn’t going to be easy for us, but you never promised that it would. Your craftsmanship is beyond our comprehension, so I trust that you’re power is immeasurable and that gives me peace.
The world is in a constant state of flux. The challenges we face each day seem insurmountable. Our cars break down or we need to have the plumbing repaired. Our loved ones die or experience illness. Our goals are crushed by circumstances beyond our control. Nothing is permanent except for your Word, dear God. You’re the one consistent in our lives. I know that you’ve got this. Though perils all around us rage, my life is in your hands. I’ll trust in your unchanging care and hearken to your plans.
Please help man to discover a cure for this dreaded virus. Watch over our leaders and give them wisdom to make the right choices for our safety. Help us to trust them. Give us strength to overcome whatever the consequences of this pandemic may bring. Remind us to come to you for help.
Thank you for your unconditional love, especially during times of change. We don’t deserve this love, but you replenish us with it. In Jesus name, I ask for your continued presence in our lives. Amen!
