Remember today that in the face of difficulty there will always be something to celebrate. The odds may be against but God is for you. He's for your joy. He's for your peace. He's for your renewal. He's for things getting better but not at the compromise of your faith in him growing weaker. 

Remember today that moments of deep darkness will not often be done away with one blast of light but rather with small reminders of light; God's truth about you and your circumstance. 

Remember today that God has been faithful over your dark circumstances already. Jesus has died in them, yet has risen over them. 

Prayer: God, today we thank you for your faithfulness to us and over our difficulties. Help us, Holy Spirit, to believe that you in us, is greater and more powerful than our circumstances over us. Jesus, you are our refuge and answer to dark moments. Amen!
