DAILY?READINGS: Ex. 2:23-3:22; Psalms 32:1-33:22; Matt. 28:1-20

My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning. Psalm 130:6

Many individuals, especially children, are afraid of the dark. A dark night, particularly in an unfamiliar place can be unsettling. Our reaction can be “If only the morning would come”! The wait can be painful. But the Psalmist says the Lord is the one I am anxious for. He is the one who will calm my fears and settle my distress. This is why one of the last things our Lord said to His disciples was “Lo, I am with you always” (Matt. 28:20). Rejoice in this blessed promise. —Ken Gross

Leaning on Jesus, leaning on Jesus,
Safe and secure from all alarms;
Leaning on Jesus, leaning on Jesus,
Leaning on the everlasting arms. —Elisha A. Hoffman
