There is no escaping conflict, but there is always a firm foundation from which to meet it. Ukraine is a current example as is our continuing Psalm for the day. The Book of Chronicles peeks into a pending invasion of Judah that also reveals this principle. Luke reminds us of the razor-sharp focus required.
Strife presents daily
Always you are there within
From anguish, we seek your help
And we wait and watch
The way is narrow
A few are free to squeeze through
The task is now done
