Words of Hope During COVID-19
In tough times Bruce Epperly, author of The Mystic in You, begins his days by repeating Psalm 118:24. This verse’s words remind him that God is present in his life, that he can do something beautiful for God, and that God is at work in history.
My future is in God’s hands; God has not forgotten me. I need to go to God in prayer again and again until my scary, out-of-control spells pass. In prayer time, something mysterious happens. God wipes away fear and brings peace to my troubled spirit.
—Nell E. Noonan, A Widow’s Prayer: Finding God’s Grace in the Days Ahead (Upper Room Books, 2015)
