“But blessed are those who trust in the Lord
and have made the Lord their hope and confidence.”

-Jeremiah 17:7 [NLT]

A Time to Think… “Faith draws the poison from every grief, takes the sting from every loss, and quenches the fire of every pain; and only faith can do it.” ―Josiah Gilbert Holland (1819–1881) American novelist, poet and deacon

A Time to Act… We all experience times of pain, loss, grief, loneliness, etc. But if we stay steadfast in our faith in God with hope and confidence, we will have the strength to get through those times, to continue forward and not get stuck. When we do we will find that God has abundant blessings waiting for us.

A Time to Pray… O God, help me to exercise my faith, to put it in action when tough times come my way. My faith in you is like a fortress that keeps me safe, gives me courage, as well as the confidence I need for daily living. I thank you for the gift of faith you have instilled in me. I praise you for the love and blessings you give me each day, AMEN.
