Devotion on God's Goodness, Dealing with Down Days, Genesis 28:20-22a. 2 pages.

Then Jacob made a vow, saying, “If God will be with me and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat and clothing to wear, so that I come again to my father’s house in peace, then the LORD shall be my God, and this stone, which I have set up for a pillar, shall be God’s house” (Genesis 28:20–22a).

What if you can’t change the fact that something is missing?
