Scripture for the day is Proverbs 15:19

The way of the sluggard is blocked with thorns,
    but the path of the upright is a highway.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, I am anxious about the hardness of life. It makes me want to give up. But you promised to speak peace to your people (Psalm 85:8). So help me say to my heart: “Be still my soul: thy heav’nly Friend; through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.” Amen.
