The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them. - Psalm 145:18-19 (NIV)

About a week after I returned from maternity leave, my job was unexpectedly eliminated. I was shocked, hurt, and anxious about how my husband and I would make ends meet. We were just learning how to be parents of a new baby. How were we supposed to handle this?


Today's Prayer
Dear Lord, help us to remember your goodness and faithfulness always. May we lean on you in times of distress, knowing that you hear our cries. Amen.
