Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God has great mercy, and because of his mercy, he gave us a new life. This new life brings us a living hope through Jesus Christ’s resurrection from death.
“If our greatest need had been information, God would have sent an educator. If our greatest need had been technology, God would have sent us a scientist. If our greatest need had been money, God would have sent us an economist. But since our greatest need was forgiveness, God sent us a Savior.” —Max Lucado
As we usher in this new week, I pray that God gives us seven more days of life, challenges, and growth.
I pray that we take time to talk with our families and friends, hold each other up, and applaud each other. I pray that we pray for our country, the world, and our leaders. I pray that we get along, keep the faith, and wait expectantly to see what God has in store for us this week.
With each passing day, I grow in my understanding, faith, and relation with God. I spend more time in His word and continuously ask for the wisdom and courage to do good and avoid being misled by ignorance and fear.
