Jesus said, “I’ve said these things to you so that you will have peace in me. In the world you have distress. But be encouraged! I have conquered the world.” - John 16:33 (CEB)
During my afternoon walks, I enjoy listening to the birds sing, watching the trees sway, and hearing the buzz of activity. However, on this afternoon, the rain poured and my eyes were focused downward on the road. I had never noticed the cracks in the road or the occasional pothole....
When I share a kind word, I show the love of Christ.
Respond by posting a prayer.
While several strategies for reopening the world are being discussed, I encourage you—the people of God everywhere—to allow this season to be a formative one during which you can make new discoveries about God and increase your faith. Use this time to embark on a life of prayer, a life of study, and a life of action—involvement in the community.”
