“He came to save us. It’s not that we earned it
by doing good works or righteous deeds;
He came because He is merciful.
He brought us out of our old ways of living to a
new beginning through the washing of regeneration;
and He made us completely new through the Holy Spirit.”
-Titus 3:5 [Voice]
A Time to Think… “Courage is born at the point where God’s grace and human effort intersect.” ―Father Timothy M. Gallagher, author
A Time to Act… What would happen if we decided to live with the thought of being in God’s care every day? We should, because that is exactly what God IS doing every day. We don’t earn it, it is God’s miraculous gift of love and grace to us.
A Time to Pray… O Lord, give me the courage to stretch past the safe boundaries I have made for myself which often has put me in my own prison. You are there with me always so I can adventure out, I can stretch my timid thoughts to the mercy and grace of your thoughts. I want to experience that newness of life, and I know I need to trust you and find the new beginnings you have for me. In your strength I can, in your name I ask it, Amen.
