Prayer to turn around a Bad Day!

Father, when we are worried about our future, remind us about all things you got us through in the past!  If You did it then, You'll do it again! So give us a new outlook on bad days.  

 

For Your word says, "When troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy.  For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. (James 1:2-3)

 

Looking through old pictures today and I found this one. This was the day I signed my lease to start life on my own as a single mom.  This was almost 3 years ago. Funny how at the time I felt like I was barely surviving and seriously doubted if I was going to make it. I still feel that way sometimes.  Now I miss those days of complete and utter faith and reliance on God. I was so desperate Jesus, You were my only comforter. Now I miss that feeling of constant closeness to You and those days of carving out a new life. 

 

Remind me to continue to rely on you and find joy on bad days and good days! -In Jesus' name, Amen.
