God is near to us, loves us, and awakens our love for God. Today I give thanks for God’s call and assignment to duty. I have been led to great challenge and diversity, but always I have been sustained. God never fails or disappoints and is always faithful, even when I foolishly forget my call and my constant companion.
—Norman Shawchuck, reflection in A Guide to Prayer for All Who Walk with God, by Rueben P. Job, Norman Shawchuck, & John S. Mogabgab (Upper Room Books, 2013)
