Thursday, March 22nd. Psalm 55:22

Our devotions this Lenten season have been written by members of Faith Lutheran Church.  Today’s devotion is by Natalie Dorman. Also, if you would like to join our staff in praying the liturgy for Responsive Prayer/Suffrages just click here.

 

Cast your burden to the Lord and He will sustain you.  Psalm 55:22
   

Sometimes we feel alone in the world.

We feel that there is not a single person on the planet who understands us. Not a single person who can help us. As we grow up and experience change, challenge, love, heartbreak, friendship, betrayal, and passion, we must also grow and learn to love God. We must learn to rely on him, just as we learn to rely on our friends and family.

 

We are “only human.” We make bad decisions, we get into trouble, we learn from our mistakes. We learn to ask for help. We hope for a sign. We pray. We knock, and the door is opened. The Lord steps out and guides us down the right path.

 

For teenagers, there is constant pressure about college, getting a job, preparing for our future. Sometimes, we feel like breaking down and giving in. But we know that the Lord is with us, holding our hands as our parents used to (though we no longer let them), patting our shoulders and wiping away our tears. But we must pray. We must ask for God’s aid, because, as my mother often says, “the squeaky wheel gets the oil.”

And when the Lord offers his help – through a doctor, a friend or family member, or even through a stranger, we must take it. We must accept him; let him into our hearts and minds and spirits. Let the Lord in, and let Him fulfill our dreams, our needs. We knock, and God opens the door to our future.

 

Let us pray:  Lord, give us all the strength to trust in you. When we need a helping hand, a shoulder to cry on, or a light to guide us down the right path, let us all trust in you to show us, teach us, and heal us. Let your love shine on all of your children in times of need. Amen.
