Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain. In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat—for he grants sleep to those he loves. - Psalm 127:1-2
Dear Heavenly Father,
I love this simple profession of faith. Unless you bless and protect all my endeavors they are doomed to fail. I do fall into the temptation of believing it all depends on me. But actually it all depends on you. And you have shown yourself to be my provider and protector so many times. Help me to sleep in your arms and to lead a quiet life of sublime trust that you are there to take care of all my needs. Give me the work you want me to do and bless that work the way you wish. Just as you came and took care of my salvation, I know you will be there for me every day to take care of my preservation. As you keep me in mind that you are always near to help me, use my gentle confidence to encourage others to trust you to be their God and Savior too.
Good earthly parents are a reflection of our perfect heavenly Father.
