Having loved his own who were in the world, [Jesus] loved them to the end. - John 13:1 (NIV)

I suspect that all of us have felt let down or disappointed by someone. When this happens, we may be tempted to give up on the person who has made us feel that way. We may feel hurt to the point of despair. But we can choose to maintain peace...

Today's Prayer
Dear Lord, strengthen us to love others even when we feel hurt, bitter, or disappointed. Help us to demonstrate your grace and forgiveness. Amen.

Someone who has disappointed me

Emmaus helped me laugh again, and it brought joy back to my life after the loss of my child. I am now stronger than ever in my walk with the Lord. And to this day, I continue to sponsor pilgrims to The Walk to Emmaus. In my local church, I have led our discipleship team and have had the opportunity to start new Sunday school classes and various women’s ministries. ¡De Colores!”
