Pause

By Mother Teresa

Slow down, breathe deep, and connect to your power source.

“In this room you see a big bulb and a big switch. But, if there is no connection with the main power house, then there can be no light. Faith and prayer is the connection with God, and when that is there, there is service.”

Take a moment, connecting with God, and know this: Faith carries you through. Faith calls you to action. Faith is enough.

Hold it Together

By Julie D

Hello precious child of God! This morning as Dana and I were walking on the beach, I got hit by a huge wave that knocked me off my feet and rolled me in the undertow. I held it together and shut my mouth and closed my eyes. I didn't panic so I didn't get into any real trouble. But afterwards, I was thinking about times in my life where I had that same feeling...of being knocked off my feet and rolled and pulled under. I thought of all the ways I coped with the turmoil. Sometimes I close my eyes and just move forward. Sometimes, I open my mouth and end up swallowing way more than I needed to. Sometimes I panicked and got myself into all kinds of trouble. And sometimes I hold on and just go with the flow. I think the difference is the times I reached out for God’s hand and He pulled me up and out. I’m sure my days of getting rolled are not over but I believe in my heart that if I trust in Him, I will always be safe. May God shine His blessings down upon you and may you be given His abundant peace! Love and hugs!

Great Examples of Faith

Hebrews 11:1, 5-6

1 Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see.

5 It was by faith that Enoch was taken up to heaven without dying—“ he disappeared because God took him.” For before he was taken up, he was known as a person who pleased God. 6 And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.

Great Examples of Faith

Hebrews 11:3-4

1 Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see.

3 By faith we understand that the entire universe was formed at God’s command, that what we now see did not come from anything that can be seen.

4 It was by faith that Abel brought a more acceptable offering to God than Cain did. Abel’s offering gave evidence that he was a righteous man, and God showed his approval of his gifts. Although Abel is long dead, he still speaks to us by his example of faith.

Be Thankful

By Julie D

Hello my precious child! I trust your day is winding down. Today I am thankful. Not for anything specific but thankful in general for all the bounty and gifts God has given me. As I look around me, I see smiles and head nods, the whisper of the wind in the palm trees, the beauty of all the colors of the water...I am surrounded by blessings and for all this and more, I am thankful. My prayer for you is that you look around you and see the world God has made for you and that you can be thankful for at least one thing today. May God's blessings be upon you. May you bask in the glow of His smile. May you always know that He is with you and may you always feel His love. Love and hugs!
