Old Testament: Jeremiah 7:21-34
Morning Psalms: Psalms 78:1-39
New Testament: Romans 4:13-25
Gospel: John 7:37-52
Evening Psalms: Psalms 78:40-72


It was not through the law that Abraham and his offspring received
the promise that he would be heir of the world, but through
the righteousness that comes by faith.”
(Romans 4:13)

This faith Paul speaks of is also for me, for I believe in the One who raised Jesus from the dead. This scripture reading reminds me to trust in God, an all-loving father who always has my best interests at heart.

Last February my dad was diagnosed with leukemia that is incurable. After my parents told me about this, I was unable to sleep well or to concentrate. I was filled with worry and dreaded the worse every time I talked to them over the phone. I called them almost every day. Finally, I realized I was driving myself (and them) a little crazy.

In a quiet moment of prayer, I came to understand that only God has the power to solve a problem as large as this one was for me. So I asked Him to take care of my dad, and I put all my faith in His power (that His Will be done). The relief I have felt since that moment has been liberating. My heart and soul have been refreshed, and my peace of mind has been restored. I have made a personal vow to have more faith in God and to trust Him more.

Remember, even when all seems lost, God is there. Trust Him.

DE (3/5/13)
