In the Thick of It

In the Thick of It

Every task and project has a beginning, a middle and an end. Beginnings can be exciting as we approach a new task with fresh energy and enthusiasm. Endings, often hard won, can offer a sense of accomplishment and thanksgiving for what God has done. It’s in the middle, though, that we often find ourselves in the thick of it with details and deadlines swirling around us. Every day can bring new challenges or the monotony of never-ending details. Where are you ‘in the thick of it’? How do you need God to see you through?

Lord, be gracious to us; we long for you. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress. —Isaiah 33:2

Prayer: Lord, as pressures mount around me, my eyes look to You. Faithful God, be my faithful companion, my strength and salvation. See me through to the end You have in mind, for Your glory and to show Your greatness to all who watch. In the name of Jesus I come, amen.
