Wednesday, August 19 — Psalm 101
Jeremiah 15:1–16:13; 1 Timothy 1:12–2:7
The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and he knows those who trust in him. Nahum 1:7 (NKJV)
Paul wrote: Epaphroditus was indeed so ill that he nearly died. But God had mercy on him, and not only on him but on me also, so that I would not have one sorrow after another. Philippians 2:27
Dear God, we grow tired of hardship. Do you? We sometimes feel that sorrow may drown us. Awaken us to your own broken heart. May we trust the truth of your power revealed through the cross. In the name of our Christ we pray. Amen.
