Scripture for the day is Job 35:9-11

“Because of the multitude of oppressions people cry out;
    they call for help because of the arm of the mighty.
10 But no one says, ‘Where is God my Maker,
    who gives strength in the night,
11 who teaches us more than the animals of the earth,
    and makes us wiser than the birds of the air?’

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Father, in difficult times I will praise you for your past goodness to me, for your presence with me, and for the tremendous future things you have promised me. As I sing, “let the things of the world grow strangely dim, in the light of your glory and grace.” Amen.
