Good morning!! Here is suggested reading for the week :)
Finishing Romans this morning, I came away with the exhortation to be wise in doing right and stay innocent of any wrong, as well as be on the look out for those who'd cause division.
Lord, help us to be vigilent, by the power of Your Holy Spirit. Thank You for the grace and mercy You surround us with when we fail You, and for giving us the strength to get back up again. Lord, when our own thoughts combined with the thoughts and opinions of others would like us to stay down and "out of the game", thank You for whispering to our hearts. You are the God of so much more and keeping our eyes on You brings the true victory! Rising when we fall, to keep moving forward in the "race" You've called us to, empowers us to "win" and live in the place of peace, joy and unity found only in YOU. Thank You. Holy Spirit cause us to stay in this until You say we've crossed the finish line...
