You don’t necessarily need your mouth, at least not in the beginning.

In the above-mentioned job, I determined that if I could just make it through another six months or so, things might turn around for the better. But I didn’t get that chance. I may have resigned myself to stay, but God wanted more for me than that. The company let me go which turned out to be a blessing. The next few months—the same ones that I had been determined to push through—proved to be very rocky at the company and God had spared me of that. A weight was removed from me and a new job came shortly afterwards.
Dear Lord, when I’m in the midst of a tumult of worries, fear, and sadness, remind me as quickly as possible that You are with me. I can never go anywhere where You can’t find me.
In my mountain top, excited moments, You are there. In my desert wanderings, You are there. You are even there in my lowest, most distressed states. I may not always feel it but I know You are with me. Bring just the right person at just the right time to help me to stand when I am under pressure. And always remind me of Your immense love which was depicted on that cross. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
