'Our salvation in time of distress'

Lord, be gracious to us;
    we long for you.
Be our strength every morning,
    our salvation in time of distress.

We've all had distress, stroke-related or not.

Last week, I marked my 15th "anniversary" of my stroke, and remarked how God gave me strength in my recovery.

That strength is available to you, every day, especially in time of distress, as the above quote from Isaiah notes.

These days, I exercise most mornings. When I run this morning, I will thank God for the strength of that morning. No matter your schedule, even when your "morning" is everybody else's afternoon, you, too can reach out for that strength and salvation.
