Scripture of the Week
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus.” — Romans 8:35, 37-39
Smile – God likes humor
A woman invited some people to dinner. At the table, she turned to her six-year-old daughter and said, “Would you like to say the blessing?”
“I wouldn’t know what to say,” the little girl replied.
“Just say what you hear Mommy say,” the mother said.
The little girl bowed her head and said: “Dear Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?”
Think About It
Thoughts to Ponder
When we put our cares in God’s hands, He puts His peace in our hearts.
Gratitude should be a continuous attitude (expressed to God, expressed to people).
What we let into our minds shapes the state of our souls.
God chooses what we go through; we choose how we go through it.
Courage is fear that has said its prayers.
When we keep our mind on God, God gives us peace of mind.
God takes us into His darkroom to develop our character.
When God stretches our patience, He is seeking to enlarge our souls.
When you stop changing, you stop growing.
In prayer, God hears more than just words; He listens to your heart.
God invites us to burden Him with what burdens us.
If we don’t come apart and rest awhile, we may just plain come apart.
If you feel that you have no faults, that makes another one.
