Scripture for the day is Proverbs 3:11-12

My child, do not despise the Lord’s discipline
    or be weary of his reproof,
12 for the Lord reproves the one he loves,
    as a father the son in whom he delights.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, when things are going wrong for me, the last things I want to do are to pray and to trust you. Yet I’ve come to see that if I just cling to you in prayer during the stormy times, I’m spiritually stronger, not weaker for it. Please remind me of what I am saying today when the next time comes! Amen.
