Sometimes…even before you get out of bed…you can feel the pressures of the day. First there’s one thing. Then another. And something you’ve been putting off. The day is just beginning…and already you want to hide.
Go ahead. Hide. God understands…and provides a safe hiding place. Right now, use this moment to be alone with Him. Focus your attention on Him, the Ultimate Always-available Caregiver.
God cares…when your emotional strength has reached its breaking point.
Anticipating the pressures of the day will only magnify them. Committing them to the hand of God helps to lift the pressure and makes it possible for you to draw on His unlimited resources. He invites you to hide in the safe shelter of His protection.
Help me to remember, Lord, that I am safest in your protection. Amen.
