I am scared. This isolation has cost my family more than just activities. We are financially strained because of all that has happened. I am worried about providing for my family's needs, and I admit I cannot do it on my own. I need You, Father. I am holding on to the reminder that neither the birds nor flowers want for food, clothing, or shelter. You have provided all of that for them, and You have told me I am more precious than they.
When the Israelites were in the desert, You provided manna and water. More than once, Jesus fed the multitudes with nothing more than a few loaves of bread or fish. Open my eyes to all the ways You have provided for me in the past. Help me to reflect on that and remember. Increase my faith as I trust You to act and provide. Many times You tell us in Your word to wait for You to be strong and courageous, even as we wait. I am waiting, Lord. Show me how to act, or give me the courage and strength to wait for You to provide. I hold onto the promise You will provide. I believe it. Help my faith to be unwavering. You are God, Creator, Father, and Provider. I trust You. I believe You will provide everything we need, even if it is not everything we want.
In Jesus's name, amen.
