Today’s lectionary readings includes one of my favorites, Psalm 27. This wonderful song of praise promises us that God will always give us the strength and courage to persevere through struggles and fears.
The LORD is my light and my salvation;
whom should I fear?
The LORD is my life’s refuge;
of whom should I be afraid?
One thing I ask of the LORD;
this I seek:
To dwell in the house of the LORD
all the days of my life,
That I may gaze on the loveliness of the LORD
and contemplate his temple. Put your trust in the Lord. His love endures forever.
