Yesterday, I learned that someone was deeply hurt by cutting remarks of another and remembered a little poem that had come to me several years ago in similar circumstances.
Forgive us oh my Father,
We know not what we do,
For when we’re hurting others
We’re also hurting you.
When it’s hard to be happy while living with chronic pain or receiving sad news, God offers this:
“I will strengthen you, I will help you. I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.” Isaiah 41:10
How many times do we need someone to lean on but there just isn’t anyone around. When that happens we can know that there are always those Everlasting Arms. Happy Sunday.
Here is a song that has seen me through many a trial because no matter the number of trials, the blessings have been more numerous. Happy Sunday.
Help us to overcome the obstacles that prevent us from enjoying a closer relationship with you.
Grant us the patience of Job, the wisdom of Solomon and the faith of Mary.
Help us to remember that the cross is the crux of our Christianity.
When we are unsure, help us to take the action we feel is right for the good of all and rely on Spirit to make any necessary adjustments along the way.
Grant us the courage and boldness to speak the truth of your word to our families and friends and may your Holy Spirit open their hearts and draw them to you. Thank You, Lord.
Have you ever been unable to see things clearly or wondered about the path you should take in life? I find this photo and scripture very enlightening. Happy Sunday.
What you decide on will be done, and light will shine on your ways. (Job 22:28 NIV)
So many have so much in the way of talents, yet so many are not applying them in their lives. Whatever your talents are they are God-given and not to be set on the back burner. Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 1 Peter 4:10. Happy Sunday
