Good morning .

It’s no secret that life can be hard. The struggle is real. Like most people we’ve had days when we have felt discouraged and drained.

David, too, had days like this. We read of one such account in 1 Samuel 30:6 "David was greatly distressed because the men were talking of stoning him; each one was bitter in spirit because of his sons and daughters. But David found strength in the Lord his God."

We need to follow David's example by learning how to help ourselves feel better so that we can be strengthened in our hearts and receive the “portion” that God promises us during hard times.

As followers of Christ we do this by leaning into God who restores us when we’re having a hard time.

So, when the tough times come (and they will), step back and lean into the One who restores our souls.

Have a good week.


Mike and Daphne.
