As A New Week Dawns…

Standard

When exciting things are happening in the lives of those around you, rejoice with those who rejoice. Send the card, buy the gift, go to the shin dig, make your presence the present. May you support them amidst the changes. May you remind them who the Giver is. 

When tragedy strikes in the lives around you, mourn with those who mourn. Send the card or encouraging text, buy the flowers, sacrifice the time, take the meal, keep your words but give your ear to their questions, give them the ministry of your presence. May you support them amidst the changes. May you remind them who the Comforter is.

Two extremely different seasons. Just like spring, summer, winter, fall, we all go through them all. Support today, be supported tomorrow.

As A New Week Dawns

In a world where we can get engulfed in a routine, may we do something new, something different, something out of the ordinary. Whether it’s a new restaurant, buying a different shampoo, or driving a new route home. Because our eyes get blinded to the beauty when we live robotic lives. And our hearts get worn and weary in the repetitive. May we place ourselves where freshness can rain down.

When your body hurts after a work out, it’s a sign that your muscles are growing stronger. Our muscles are stretched and torn but come back together more resilient, they grow. You may struggle to walk for a few days, but the hurt will prove profitable. 

May we see this week’s trials, temptations, and tests as God’s way of building our spiritual muscles. May we work out our faith, may our faith grow. Although faith building may not always be a pleasant process, it proves profitable.
