Lord, our hearts are so heavy this morning. Our sorrow is so great. In the midst of all this pain we are feeling, we are so thankful that you are God and we are not. We are so thankful that you are all-powerful, that we do not have to hold it all together or be strong for everyone in our lives. You are our strength. You are strong for our loved-ones when we can’t be. We are thankful you are all-knowing – that you know the outcome to this misery we are facing. That we don’t have to figure out what the next week or month or year looks like, because you have it all held together. And you promise our feet won’t slip. Help us, Lord! Strengthen us for today. Give us daily bread, that we can be sustained through this heartache. Thank you God that you are close when we are hurting. Thank you God for the comfort, grace and joy that only you can give. Hold us up today. In your name we pray, Amen.
