Psalm 90:1 Lord, you have been our refuge from one generation to another.
As people of faith, we practice discerning hope for people and situations that may feel or seem hopeless. We may feel uncomfortable accepting the sorrow before us. We are called not only to love our neighbors as they suffer but also to acknowledge our own suffering. This is why I love the ending of this psalm—even in the midst of feeling worn down and weary, the psalmist calls us to remember the comfort that God offers us and to offer praise for it.
MOVING FORWARD: Draw, photograph or make a collage that represents your place of refuge. Share your creations with #ForwardDayByDay.
