I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul. Ps. 31:7

Trouble and anguish are nothing to smile about.  We might not be happy about the trouble but knowing we are not alone in it and that our problems are on God’s radar actually are reasons to rejoice. If we can’t escape the trouble we can still have joy in knowing that we can’t escape the love of God either.

Lord, thank you for wrapping me, trouble and all, in your unfailing love.
