God's Perfect Love

An autumnal harvest bounty

I cry out to God Most High, to God who fulfills His purpose for me.—Psalm 57:2 (ESV)

It may be hard to believe, but Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Sometimes the details of family gatherings—planning the meals, shopping, or making travel arrangements—take center stage and we fret over making everything perfect. Don’t worry. Everything always gets done, and instead of trying to make everything perfect, focus on your love of God and your family and friends.

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly Father, You love me perfectly! If I get caught up in worrying and planning, bring my focus back to where it belongs, on love.
