I keep the Lord always before me, for with Him at my right hand I will never fall.  Therefore, my heart is glad and my soul rejoices; my body too is filled with confidence.   – Ps 16:8-9

Reflection.  To be close to the Lord by means of faith is to realize that feelings do not matter.  By faith we know that He is always present, loving us, whether we feel it or not.  Bless the Lord on good days and bad.  When troubles come, search for reasons to give thanks, for this is what the Saints before you did.

Prayer.  Dear God, I have it in my heart to give thanks to You in all circumstances.  Let me have the strength and courage to carry out these good intentions.
