Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
The phrase “in all your ways acknowledge him” jumps out at me this morning. Although God’s grace precedes us and follows us, we must be in relationship with God to recognize his grace in the here and now. It is in turning to God and asking for help that I most powerfully experience His grace. This is where I must look for courage. The courage which God provides is divine, and can endure all things.
Holy Father, you are always willing to give me courage. Help me to remember to ask. Amen
