We are invited to turn to God—to turn ourselves over to God—and to see what happens. The rain will fall, and it will go into the earth. The earth will produce bounty. Trees will grow where there were thorns, myrtle where there had been briars. We may feel lost at times. We may find ourselves in exile. Still we can trust God; nothing is wasted.
—Jane Herring, One Day I Wrote Back: Interacting with Scripture Through Creative Writing (Upper Room Books, 2015)

“Cast your burden on the LORD—
he will support you!
God will never let the righteous be shaken!”
