When bad times and hard times are suddenly here, notice those that remain, and the ones that disappear.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you that you abide with us in every situation we face. You are our Helper, our Rock, and our Fortress. We trust in you and commit our lives to you.
In Jesus’ Name
As they approached the village to which they were going, Jesus continued on as if he were going farther. But they urged him strongly, “Stay with us, for it is nearly evening; the day is almost over.” So he went in to stay with them.
Make sure that you are confident that God is with you. No matter the size of your problems, trust in him. He is abiding with you, right now.
Your emotions create your actions.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for loving us so much that you sent Jesus to die for us. We are so grateful for that love. Help us to share that love with others.
In Jesus’ Name
Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot sweep it away. If one were to give all the wealth of one’s house for love, it would be utterly scorned.
Solomon may seem to have written about romantic love. But ultimately he described a love that can come only from God, the kind of love that he has for us, but also a picture of the kind of love we need to have for him. A love of passion and selfless devotion. Giving and not receiving. A love that consumes us. That changes our lives.
Actions prove who someone is, words just prove who they want to be.
