RCL Daily Devotion for Monday, July 8, 2019

RCL Daily Devotions written by Daniel D. Maurer from RCL Worship Resources (see more).

Have you ever been really scared? And I’m not asking about the times when you got a little chill from walking into a Halloween ghost house. I’m talking about the times when worry and apprehension takes over in your life.

I have. One time was when I thought I lost my dog and he had been run over. (I got him after an hour or so.)

The second was when my son didn’t come home from school and we couldn’t contact his driver. (He was fine, too.)

But no matter what, it seems that the brain wants to take you to the worst-case scenario when bad or worrisome things happen.

The Psalmist can relate with that today. That’s one of the greatest aspects of the Psalms is that they’re real.

And in it all, God is there. God guides and helps and steers our minds and hearts to be close to God.

And that, at least, counts for something.

Have you ever been scared out of your wits? What happened?
