The Lord stoops toward me

Though I am afflicted and poor,
yet the LORD thinks of me.
You are my help and my deliverer;
O my God, hold not back! Psalm 40:18

With an open, broken heart, I ask the Lord for help and receive it.

Lord, today I will remember you are here. I am not alone. I will remember to keep you in the center of my life and suffering.

Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses,
let us rid ourselves of every burden and sin that clings to us
and persevere in running the race that lies before us. Hebrews 12:1

Today I feel like I am walking backwards in my race towards God. I have prayed, talked to a trusted friend, written to God, and now I am surrendering my life and will to the One who is Compassion. I know I will be given what I need to persevere.
