Wisdom From The Word

God’s Servant Will Set Everything Right

1-4 “Take a good look at my servant.

I’m backing him to the hilt.

He’s the one I chose,

and I couldn’t be more pleased with him.

I’ve bathed him with my Spirit, my life.

He’ll set everything right among the nations.

He won’t call attention to what he does

with loud speeches or gaudy parades.

He won’t brush aside the bruised and the hurt

and he won’t disregard the small and insignificant,

but he’ll steadily and firmly set things right.

He won’t tire out and quit. He won’t be stopped

until he’s finished his work—to set things right on earth.

Far-flung ocean islands

wait expectantly for his teaching.” – Isaiah 42:1-4 (The Message)

“Live Deeply in Christ

28And now, children, stay with Christ. Live deeply in Christ. Then we’ll be ready for him when he appears, ready to receive him with open arms, with no cause for red-faced guilt or lame excuses when he arrives.” – 1 John 2:28 (The Message)

Keep Me Real Lord!

Dear Lord, help me to be an initiator of fun, laughter, curious conversation and creativity in our marriage and in our family.

Help me to anticipate time with my mate just as I anticipate time with you Lord. Help me to make our connected moments count. Thank you Lord.
