“And from there, when the brethren heard about us, they came to meet us as far as Appii Forum and Three Inns.  When Paul saw them, he thanked God and took courage.”  Acts 28:15 NKJV

I am always so blessed when God sends a friend to greet me at the grocery store.

Thank You, Lord, for all the ways You encourage us right when we need it most. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Eagerly greet
your brothers and sisters

lavish love
on them today

giving them courage
for their journey

and thankful hearts
full of praise.

God bless you as you lovingly greet someone today!

Waiting Exercises

“Wait on the LORD;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your hearts;
Wait, I say, on the LORD!”  Psalm 27:14

Waiting can make us stronger.

Lord, give us the courage to wait on You today. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Brave Enough To Wait

Be of good courage
as you wait on Me

for I will strengthen your heart

and you will be a people
of My mercy and grace

unable to be shaken
at any time, in any place.

Response Ability

“Arise, for this matter is your responsibility. We also will be with you.  Be of good courage and do it.”  Ezra 10:4

When I look at the word “responsibility”, I see “response” and “ability”.

Lord, I desire to respond with the abilities You’ve given me and to support others as they do the same.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

God Given

We have God
given abilities
to do the work
that must be done

it is not up to
someone else to do
God is asking us
to be the ones.
