Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. Remember, O Lord, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old. Remember not the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; according to your love remember me, for you are good, O Lord. Ps 25:5-7
God our Father’s love for each of us is steadfast and everlasting. He will never withdraw it from us, so in His love we can always trust, knowing He will never let us down. He knows everything that happens to us, and yes, it is He who allows suffering and pain into our lives, but He never leaves us alone, He is with us every step of our painful way. When we turn to Him in times of difficulties His Word lights up our path, and His love and strength keep us walking in those times. Let us pray to our God in whose love we can find Hope, to lift our drooping spirits and take away our fears and anxieties, and set us free from our burden. Let us ask Him to give us His peace and joy while we wait trustingly for Him to relieve us of our suffering.
