Thought for the Day: When faith helps you hold your own against despair, loneliness, lostness, fear and grief, an endurance begins to build. Part of it is an endurance of memory, remembering how you got through a previous challenge. It does not take away the pain or anxiousness, yet the capacity to recall a previous journey is beneficial. I may not have been in this exact situation before, but I trust that God will not leave me in this darkness because God has never left me in the darkness. In the current moment, I may have no idea how I will make it through, but the One who journeyed with me before will not abandon me now. My trust is grounded in experiences, from significant to nearly inconsequential, both my own and those of others. Every situation is contributing to a more resilient and enduring memory.
Prayer: Let the memories I have – all of them – be applied to the work of building a resilient and enduring faith. Assist me, Holy God, as I continue to grow in my capacity to be a witness to your everlasting love. Amen.
