“Lord, help me to live this day, quietly, easily. To lean upon Thy great strength, trustfully, restfully. To wait for the unfolding of Thy will, patiently, serenely. To meet others, peacefully, joyously. To face tomorrow, confidently, courageously.”
God wants you to dream!
Trying something new requires great patience! What new skill would you love to work on if only you had the patience to stick with it?
Virtue in focus…
Patience is the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble or suffering without getting angry or upset. What are three areas of your life where you’d like to be more patient?
Stewardship is a way of life, a way that begins with acknowledging God as the creator and giver of all and responding with generosity and the responsible management of our resources. As disciples of Jesus Christ, we choose to be caretakers of all God has given to us. Gratitude for these gifts and blessings is expressed in prayer, worship, offering, and sharing our gifts out of love for God and one another. Stewardship is a path to holiness. It makes us more like Christ who came not to be served but to serve. It is the humble awareness that all we have and all we are has been given to us freely from God. When we offer our lives back to God in love, He blesses that generosity a hundredfold.
