Early Morning Encouragement

Each school day morning, Susan and I awake to read the Bible and pray with Isabella before she heads off to school. This morning's Psalm was a profound and comforting reminder of God's love for us in relation to the rest of our day.

         But I call to God, 
and Yahweh will save me. 
         Evening and morning and at noon 
I utter my complaint and moan, 
and he hears my voice. 
         He redeems my soul in safety 
from the battle that I wage...
         Cast your burden on Yahweh
and he will sustain you; 
        he will never permit 
the righteous to be moved. 
(Psalm 22:16-18a, 22, English Standard Version)
