Isaiah 42:3 A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out. In faithfulness he will bring forth justice.
Heavenly Father, there are some days and weeks when nothing seems to go right and everything goes wrong…well almost everything. Now that I am starting a fresh new day give me patience when things don’t go according to plan. Forgive me when I get upset with those around me. Forgive me when I think you’ve forgotten about me. May I treat others as you continue to treat me…a bruised reed which you will not break and…a smoldering wick you will not snuff out. When I’m overwhelmed by challenges and struggles in life keep me mindful of your powerful arms which are holding on to me. Thank you for your steadiness!! Amen.
