Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
II Corinthians 4:7-15 Job 3:1-23
Blinded by the busyness of the world today, I easily cry out in the presence of friends and foes, or even more ideally, the media. News interviews, reality shows and social media are all about crying out to humanity. Unfortunately, like Job and the rest of us, I will never find answers from those who do not know that they do not know about the steadfast love and faithfulness of God. It is God alone who is wise and powerful enough to hear and understand my cries of distress and heartbreak. God alone knows human beings well enough to receive and deal with our prayers, broken and unspoken as they often are. Lord God, let me cry out in your presence.
Our help is in the name of the Lord who made heaven and earth. (Psalm 124:8)
Live in the world as if only God and your soul were in it; then your heart will never be made captive by earthly things.
