Indeed, in our hearts we felt that we were under a sentence of death.  This was designed to show us that we must put our trust not in ourselves but in God.  - 2 Cor 1:9

Reflection. Relief comes to those who call upon the Name of the Lord at the first sign of trouble.  First feel the pain and own it.  Then turn it over to the Lord.  You are never alone.  Sit back and be glad because of His strength.  All will be well.

Prayer. Dear Jesus, I call on You right now.  Thank You for being my Protector.
