How are you feeling today?
Calm? Distraught? Joyful? Anxious? Courageous? Fearful? Grounded? Uprooted? Frustrated? Peaceful? Something else altogether?
Now, more than ever, it’s so easy to get distracted by the concerns of the world and the feelings our circumstances inspire, that we can forget we have an almighty Father who loves us. However, our feelings don’t always reflect the truth of his love for us, and they can blind us to his presence in our lives.
The glorious truth is he’s always with you, regardless of how difficult it is to see him. He is always listening to your prayers and working for our best interests. Jesus is for you and watching over you. He alone is your hope and rescue, your champion and protector.
Read over this verse and let it sink into your soul before you begin writing.
Psalm 91:2-4 – 2 This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. 3 For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. 4 He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
Day 2 Prompts:
- Think back on a time God comforted you. How did it feel to be covered with his feathers and sheltered in his wings? If you’re new to the faith or can’t recall having that type of experience, write down how you imagine it would feel.
- Write a prayer, placing your full trust in him. Let him be your refuge.
- Cast your fears, worries, and anxieties on him, and thank him for protecting you.
- Write three things you’re grateful for. (No repeats from previous entries!)

Now that the 40 days of journal prompts are completed, I’ll post to the blog, once per week, on Thursday mornings. I’m working on a big, exciting project – one that will benefit you! – so I had to rearrange my schedule to allow myself the time needed to focus on that. (Can’t wait to tell you about it in the coming weeks! Be on the lookout!)
