Psalm 94: 18-19
When I said, "My foot is slipping," your unfailing love, Lord, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.
"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."
God's strength and love is sufficient to bring us peace no matter what in this world brings us despair. God does not promise a life without despair, but he does promise peace and joy through Him. The psalms are full of thankful reminders of this relationship.
Holy One, I am thankful to you for so much- for everything, really, as I would not be here today if it were not for your love in my life. You have provided for my every need. You have kept me from despair, and heard my cries for peace. I am yours. Amen
