Thank God for His Presence. There is nothing new under the sun and indeed we are living in turbulent times. People are hateful in their interactions with each others, impatient, short tempered, unforgiving, spiteful and disrespectful. May it not be said of the Body of Christ. Even as you listen to the Word of God and allow the soothing music to calm your mind and spirit pray that God will use you to offer up at the very least one prayer on behalf of someone else.
Sow seeds of prayer so that you may reap a harvest. All of us have something to offer especially a gift of thanksgiving to our Heavenly Father. Let us be light and shine through the darkness to demonstrate the fruit of the Spirit …love, joy, peace, kindness, gentleness, self-control.
Choose to respond in ways that cause others to see the Christ in you … Choose to remember the grace and mercy of God so that we can freely offer mercy to others.
God has already provided our reward. Enjoy the pleasure of serving Him.
