Ephesians 5:15-21 - Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with all your heart, giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.
Dear God, it is so hard to trust You in the midst of troubles. Troubles compiled upon troubles the other day. I was assaulted left and right. But the true test is what I choose to do in the face of the troubles, and right now, all I can do is trust You. Are the troubles fair? No. Are they right? No. But are they there? Yes. And at some point I have to trust You to help me face them. Thank You for steadfast love and salvation. In Jesus' Name, Amen!
