Scripture: Psalm 46:1-11
Journal: How aware of God’s presence are you on a minute by minute basis? What disrupts that awareness? What nurtures it?
Reflection: I am with you—always. There is no time, and no season, when I am not with you. I am with you in good times and bad, in joy and in pain. I am with you night and day, in darkness and in light. I am with you in growth and in struggle. And I am even with you when things are dull and mundane and ordinary. No matter what happens, I will never leave you—ever. I will never forsake you. I will never abandon you. I am with you always. The only question is: Are you always with me?
Closing Prayer: O God, thank you for the promise that, regardless of the mood, or the season, or the circumstances, you are always with me. Help me to always be with you. Amen.
