O LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done marvelous things, things planned long ago. Isaiah 25:1 NIV

Thought

Near the end of the journey through grief, take time for spiritual reflection on the faithfulness of God as your life has grown and changed through grief. How has God’s faithfulness manifested to you? Have you experienced moments of awakening to the reality of God faithfulness? In what ways? Is there personal evidence of God’s faithfulness that you recognize and cherish? Perspective requires reflection to exalt and praise.

Prayer

God, in perfect faithfulness you have walked every step with me on the journey through grief. O Lord, you are my God. Amen.

Assurance

I hope for those marvelous things planned for me long ago.
