Loving Arms of God
I am sorry this is late, but I am still recovering my our Thanksgiving feast. I think I committed the sin of gluttony and paid for it this morning. The devotion for today is based on Psalm 25:1 “To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul; in you, I trust, O my God.”
This morning the news of a new variant Coronavirus that is already spreading across the world. The news is spreading doom and gloom. People are scared, and some, I am afraid, are losing hope.
In these moments, I am grateful that God is always there. I don’t even have to do anything. When nothing seems okay and everything falls apart, I fall into the loving arms of God. There I am securely held. And that is all I ever need.
Take heart today in your struggle and weariness. Lift your soul to the Lord; put all your trust in him. It’s all you will ever need. It won’t make your troubles disappear or change the circumstances around you. But God is taking your burdens upon himself and moves with you through it all.
Please pray with me; Loving God, I lift my soul to you and put all my trust in you. You are my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear? You are the stronghold of my life – of whom shall I be afraid? I completely place myself into your loving hands, knowing I am safe there. Grant me your peace that transcends all human understanding. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
