I don’t know how your day is going. The odds are something awful might have just happened to you. No matter what it is, let the truth of this poem (author unknown) permeate your brain.
To Thee I Come
I see the scornful glances as I’m passing by their way
I don’t know what they’re thinking and I can’t hear what they say
But it feels like searing anger as their gaze through me is bored
And so I take my refuge in the bosom of my Lord
He is all refreshing. He nurtures me with care
And in the brightness of His glory, I lose sight that they are near
He steeps me in His mercy and soaks me in His grace
Then strengthens me and sends me out, a hostile world to face
After I read this I wonder if it is our suppositions that make us think we are under attack.
The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. (Romans 8:7, NIV)
Prayer- Lord, give us eyes to see the truth of your love and ignore any negative attitudes of any people around us. Amen,
