It was through reading the Scripture that I came to realize that I could never find God’s favor by trying—and failing—to obey the laws. I came to realize that acceptance with God comes by believing in Christ. – Galatians 1:19 TLB


Heavenly Father, I have questions I realize there will never be answers to on this side of heaven. I struggle to understand why You’ve allowed the detours in my life that have caused such pain. I realize Your peace is what I need to accept in this season of change. Thank You for walking with me as I seek Your presence and Your peace. Amen.
