Keep my focus on YOU, no matter what!

LORD, God, help me today to learn to praise You and rest in Your Presence even when everything around me seems to be going wrong. Times like this are like a test of my faith. To pass the test, I need to believe in You and trust You to take care of me.

Please help me when I do it poorly. I want all the gifts of the Spirit in my life…even this tough one, as I earnestly voice my prayers to you right now. Amen and Amen.

These [troubles] are testing your faith. And this will give you patience.” (James 1:3)
