Psalm 31, beginning at verse 21, says, “Blessed be the Lord, for he has shown me his marvelous kindness in a strong city. For I said in my haste, ‘I’m cut off before your eyes. Nevertheless, you heard the voice of my supplications when I cried out to you.'”
Those of us who live in New York City find that it can be a hard place to live. Like a fast-flowing river, its pace and fury can draw you in every direction. If you’re not careful, it can adversely affect your mind and leave you feeling hopeless.
To keep your balance, put God into the center of your day. Don’t be afraid to call out to Him. He has not cut you off; He loves you. How can I know this, you say? Well, just ask Him. Do it today. Let Him show you how kind He can be.
Even in a strong city, it’s time to pray.
