Let me hear of your steadfast love in the morning, for in you I put my trust. Teach me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul. Psalm 143:8 NRSV

Thought

You claim personal triumph over the emotional debilitation of grief when you learn to trust in yourself again. This is also a teachable moment of grief. Only when you open yourself to the risk of trust can you discern the way in which you should go. On this day of rest for your soul, entrust yourself to God.

Prayer

God, I lift up my soul to you in thanksgiving for your careful instruction through grief. May I rest in you today, for in you I put my trust. Amen.

Assurance

My soul is still in the quiet of trust.
