I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. - Psalm 9:1 (NRSV)

Once again I couldn’t sleep. Unresolved fear and anxiety became magnified by the dark quiet. Praying only made me focus on my troubles even more and question if God really cared.

I snuggled under the covers, shut my eyes, and began remembering the good things that had happened that day....

Today's Prayer
Dear God, may your love drive out our worries and give us peaceful sleep. Amen.

Emmaus helped me laugh again, and it brought joy back to my life after the loss of my child. I am now stronger than ever in my walk with the Lord. And to this day, I continue to sponsor pilgrims to The Walk to Emmaus. In my local church, I have led our discipleship team and have had the opportunity to start new Sunday school classes and various women’s ministries. ¡De Colores!”
