… and we know it, days like these can be filled with anxiety. And anxiety can cause you to forget God. Forget God, and you lose your mind and your peace. Forget God, and all you remember is anxiety. Forget the face of God, and you forget your own name is Beloved.

Beloved, you are the remembering people. Find your feet. Find His face—His broken-wide-open heart of communion.

Always remember: there can be unwavering peace today
when an uncertain tomorrow
is trusted to an unchanging God.

If we have Him today — nothing can steal our peace today.

“When you call on Me, when you come & pray to Me, I’ll listen… I’ll give you strength. I’ll help you. I’ll hold you steady” Jeremiah 29:12, Isaiah 41:10 MSG
