I will sing of your steadfast love, O LORD, forever; with my mouth I will proclaim your faithfulness to all generations. I declare that your steadfast love is established forever; your faithfulness is as firm as the heavens.

I have walked through enough ordinary days that I know how quickly the easy path changes to a stiff climb or falls away completely into a pit of shifting sand. A phone call, an letter, the tone of a voice, words unsaid can turn a road to mud. It only takes a couple of distracted turns in the forest of to-do-ness before we are quite lost in a blizzard of our own making. One truth remains. One light shines. We are loved by the Creator of the Universe. No matter the strength of the enemy that bears down on us and no matter the missteps we make ourselves along the way - Christ entered our ordinary days and never has and never will leave us unloved or alone.

For all, Lord, who feel unloved, alone, afraid, confused, make your love known and it would be our privilege to be your method of delivery. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
