Scripture for the day is Proverbs 27:22

Though you grind a fool in a mortar,
    grinding them like grain with a pestle,
    you will not remove their folly from them.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, in times o trouble I just grit my teeth and hold on stoically until the storm passes. But that is no way to learn from you. Oh, the next time, draw me into prayer, real prayer, until your presence and love reach new levels in my heart. Amen.
