TODAY’S READING

2 Corinthians 1:3-7

KEY VERSE: Praise be to the God . . . who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. – 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (NIV)

MESSAGE

My glass-front cabinet holds intriguing items, and each one has a story to go with it. Some of the pieces also catch the attention of toddlers and crawling babies, and I enjoy watching their reactions when they plaster their faces or fingers against the glass.

After the parents take their little ones home, I often forget to clean the glass. Later when the sun or a bright indoor light shines on the glass, I see the fingerprints all over it.

I sometimes question if God hears my prayers, sees my pain, or cares about my circumstances. Later, when God’s light shines in, I can look back and see that God has been there all along offering guidance, comfort, and walking beside me each step of the way.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

I can see evidence of God’s love for me everywhere.

TODAY’S PRAYER

Dear God, thank you for the guidance and comfort that you give us along each step of life’s journey. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

PRAYER FOCUS

Someone struggling to feel God’s love
