One of the ways that our faith expresses itself is by our ability to be still, to be present, and not to panic or lose perspective. God still does His best work in the most difficult of circumstances.
The true meaning of love dawns on us when we find ourselves required to love someone who has hurt us or mistreated us. Perhaps one of our greatest need is the motivation to love such people. The challenge is to love and love even when it is hard.
Today you have been given this gift twenty-four hours to spend in the most beautiful and meaning full way possible. Let this day be reflection of strength that resides within you. Of courage that guides your steps. And of the serenity that will be yours when this day has passed.
Obedience means marching right on whether we feel like it or not. Many times we go against our feelings faith is one thing, feeling is another. Do not pray for easy lives, pray to be stronger, do not pray for task equal to your power, pray for power equal to your task.
Don’t pray when you feel like it, have an appointment with the Lord and keep it. A man is powerful on his knees. Like, the father of the Prodigal Son. God can see repentance coming a great way off and is there to meet you; the repentance is the reconciliation. Let your thoughts be psalms and your prayers incense and your breath praise.
