Father in heaven, help me to have hope by surrounding me with hopeful people. Help me not to receive bad news as though it is the last edition, but rather as one piece of information afloat on a river of facts flowing into a hopeful feature. Heal me, I pray, not for my sake or anyone else’s, but for Your sake. And ground my hope in the reality of Your profound and enduring love for me and desire for my well-being. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen
It was a difficult day today but God’s love sustains me.
