This one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians, 3:13-14 in Embraced By The Light by Betty J. Eadie, 19 August) 28/Aug/2010 8:21
Dear Lord, when I lose sight of the joy of living, the knowledge of Your love restores my sense of self-worth and makes me thankful to be alive. (Lee Webber, Daily Guideposts - 1990, 11 August) 26/Aug/2010 8:07
In a world of liars, cheats, deceivers, and con-artists, isn't it a relief to know there is Someone you can trust? If He said it, you can count on it. Unlike the rhetoric of politicians who promise anybody anything they want to hear to get elected, what God says, God does. (Charles R. Swindoll, Wisdom for the Way, p. 227) 19/Aug/2010 10:40
Father, give me the wisdom to choose my friends carefully, and when I make a mistake, give me the courage to break off the relationship before I begin to think and act like the corrupt person. (Toni Sortor and Pamela McQuade, The Word On Life, 4 May) 13/Aug/2010 7:13
Lord of all blessings, watch over our friends and relatives. Guide a good tenant to our friend who needs to rent his apartment. Provide offers of good jobs with adequate health care to those who seek work. Protect those who need assistance, in order to continue to live independently, from those who seek to take advantage of their situation. Give influence to leaders at all levels to those who have the welfare of the people in mind when casting their votes or making decisions. We ask in Jesus name, Amen (Richard E. Henthorn) 1/Aug/2010 9:01
