August 3rd ~ Living with Conflict
Lord, my life seems in turmoil right now. I feel anxious and afraid as I search for ways to resolving this current conflict. I try to remind myself of Your providence and Your love and caring for me and those dear to me. But the problems I face seem overwhelming and con- tinue to worry me. There just doesn’t seem to be any quick or easy answer right now, and I sometimes wonder how my life will ever be on firm footing again. Help me to accept my responsibility, yet not lose perspective on what is really important. Guide me to a gentle awareness of what I can do, and give me the courage and strength to do it. Amen.
