Think about what is mentioned in the following two hymns:
I’m only human, I’m just a woman
Help me believe in what I could be and all that I am
Show me the stairway I have to climb
Lord, for my sake teach me to take one day at a time
One day at a time, sweet Jesus
That’s all I’m asking from You
Just give me the strength to do everyday
What I have to do
Yesterday’s gone, sweet Jesus
And tomorrow may never be mine
Lord, help me today, show me the way
One day at a time
God has not promised skies always blue,
Flower-strewn pathways all our lives through;
God has not promised sun without rain,
Joy without sorrow, peace without pain.
But God has promised strength for the day,
Rest for the labor, light for the way,
Grace for the trials, help from above,
Unfailing kindness, undying love.
Like the first song says, the only thing we are promised is today, whether it’s a good day or a bad day. But as the second song mentions, God has promised strength to get through whatever comes our way. He has also promised rest, light, grace, divine help, and kindness and love that will never stop.
After the cry for help mentioned in verse 2 of this Psalm, verse 3 continues by saying that in the morning God hears our voices as we lay our requests before Him and wait in expectation for His help and care. What a great way to start each day!
Psalm 5:2 – Hear my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray.
