Lord of Power, You are my comfort, You are my shield, and You are my hope. In light of these events which have drained me and left me distraught – I cling to You. Lord, I need You and You alone to give me strength. Let me not drown in my emotions but to hold on to the hope You give me in Jesus. Whatever comes my way, it pales in comparison to the coming glory of Christ, and in that, I hope. Thank You that true strength is found in Your name. Amen.
