Love the Lord 

What is love?  The Bible tells us that God is love.  Love is a noun and a verb.  Love is what keeps us on the right path.  Love never fails.  At the very core of who we are, we need to know that we are loved.  God created us this way - to be in relationship with Him.  The funny thing about love is we experience it more when we show it to others, especially God!  So today let your heart, soul, mind, and strength LOVE THE LORD.  After all, He is our Everything!  Blessings!

Search Our Hearts 

Why are we believers?  Is it to make us feel happy and blessed? No, but we are happy and blessed in the Lord.  The reason we are believers is to shine the light of Jesus so that others may see Him in us.  Our heart cry should be, “Lord, search my heart and cleanse me of all unrighteousness.” Joan and Brad 

He is Our Refuge 

Day 364: "

Are you going through a difficult time right now? One day your troubles will come to an end. In the meantime, God is with you and will give you a foretaste of the future – his strength for today and hope for tomorrow. 

This hope is a comfort and strength to those going through hardship and difficulty in the present (for instance, Romans 8:18), and an inspiration to live holy lives in anticipation of what is to come (for instance, 1 John 2:28). 

St Augustine explains how you should respond to this hope for the future: ‘He who loves the coming of the Lord is not he who affirms that it is far off, nor is it he who says it is near, but rather he who, whether it be far off or near, awaits it with sincere faith, steadfast hope, and fervent love.’ 

Lord, thank you for the amazing hope for the future. Help me to wait for it with sincere faith, steadfast hope and fervent love."
