I was feeling a little wobbly earlier in the day about a couple of things, and – quite suddenly – found myself in a place of doubt. It was noticeable because I had not been operating out of that dusty ‘ol spot in my mind and spirit for quite some time.
Isn’t it something how doubt and fear often creep up on us so unexpectedly? Thankfully, later in the day, I sincerely asked the Lord to help – to change my attitude and the way I was thinking. As is His custom, the transformation didn’t happen suddenly; rather, hours later, I simply noticed that my mood had much improved.
That’s what I love about this verse: it says that our spirits are being renewed “every day”; and if today was any indication, I clearly need this daily renewal! What about you?
Dear Lord, thank You for giving me the strength and peace of mind that I needed in order to persevere through the (sort of minor) challenges that I experienced today. Even when things appear to be small and insignificant to me, I’m comforted by the fact that nothing is ever too big or too small for Your loving care and tender concern. In Your name I pray, Amen.
