He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade at your right hand. - Psalm 121:4-5 (NRSV)
Our plane was gliding over patches of clouds. After a
little while, the crew announced that because of weather, the flight might be bumpy, but there was no reason to panic. However, I had never been so scared during a flight. I leaned back and closed my eyes.
Even when the path seems unclear, God faithfully leads us forward.

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
