The wild fires in the Amazon, Siberia, and the Canary Islands; Hurricane Dorian heading toward the Bahamas and the Eastern Seaboard--the people affected by this are in need of our prayers this morning.
It had been a horrible, rotten, no good, very bad week in our home, and this particular day was working out to be the worst one. I was almost positive motherhood wasn't supposed to be this hard.
Now, granted, this particular chapter in the Psalms actually deals with David's repentance after he sinned against God with Bathsheba, but I find that meditating on it when I am depressed or anxious often helps to alleviate some of the struggle.
Whatever your week holds for you and your family, remember God loves us regardless of what gets checked off our to-do lists.
