Thought of the Day January 24, 2023 The Lord is my strength

By 10:01 AM

 "Do not look forward to what may happen tomorrow; the same everlasting Father who cares for you today will take care of you tomorrow and every day. Either He will shield you from suffering, or He will give you unfailing strength to bear it. Be at peace, then, put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations, and say continually: 'The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart has trusted in Him and I am helped. He is not only with me but in me and I in Him.'" St. Francis de Sales

Fear of tomorrow's unknown prevents us from being attentive to the grace given to us in the now to deal with the present moment. The God who cares for me now will the same God who will care for me in the present moment of tomorrow. My role is to rely upon him more than on my own abilities. When I am weak, he is my strength. When I am alone, he is my comfort. When I don't know the way, he shows me.
