The LORD will accomplish his purpose for me.
Thy true love, O LORD, endures forever;
leave not thy work unfinished.
— Psalm 138:8, NEB
Sometimes, I start to think: My rate of growth and how I grow is mainly up to me.
Sometimes, I need to remember: The primary facts shaping my existence, beginning with how I got here, aren’t up to me.
Lord, thank you for reminding me that I live and grow in You. May Your Spirit provide me with the courage, patience, peace, and whatever else I need today. I believe you will accomplish your purpose for me in Christ, I pray.
Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones. And when you have finished your daily task, go to sleep in peace. God is awake.
— Victor Hugo
