Dear God, when storms beat around me, help me to rise above my circumstances and give you praise. Amen.
“Why are you down in the dumps, dear soul? Why are you crying the blues? Fix my eyes on God— soon I’ll be praising again. He puts a smile on my face. He’s my God.” — Psalm 43:5 Message
I’m tired of being sad. I’m tired of being tired. What will I do?
When life losses its luster and disappointment weighs the heart, we typically struggle with feelings of sadness. Feeling sad isn’t bad or wrong. It’s a God-given emotion. But when sadness lingers, it can be hard to endure.
So what do we do?
“The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein, for he has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the rivers.” Psalm 24:1-2
Thank you for beautiful earth. What an incredible gift you left us! Help me today, and everyday, to care for it with tender loving care.
