Psalm 142:4 I look to my right hand and find no one who knows me; I have no place to flee to, and no one cares for me.
These words keep me from seeing the abundant love surrounding me. I look down and see my dog Oliver cozied up beside me, loving me with his very existence. I receive a text message from a new friend or an old one who wants to catch up. I look to the skyline and see the wild beauty that surrounds this city and am reminded of God’s love and of how Jesus understands and meets my deepest needs. I am known and beloved.
MOVING FORWARD: When was the last time you needed a reminder that you are fully known and totally loved by God?
