POWER POST FOR THE WEEK
I know you’re busy but here’s your SPIRIT inspired POWER POST guaranteed to help you through the week:
ROMANS 5: 3-4 “WE KNOW THAT SUFFERING PRODUCES PERSEVERANCE, PERSEVERANCE CHARACTER AND CHARACTER HOPE AND HOPE DOES NOT DISAPPOINT US.”
There is a reason for hard times. THEY ARE NECESSARY. Going through them is a progression that leads to good outcomes. The hard part is continuing to remind ourselves WHY we’re going through them WHEN we’re going through them. We build character and virtue. We are stronger people. We GAIN CONFIDENCE that when the next ordeal comes along, we’ll somehow make it through. And finally we have hope knowing God and providence helps us and we have a strong hope and reason to believe better times are ahead.
READ THESE NEXT LINES ONLY IF YOU HAVEN’T BEFORE
I’ve found there is power pent up in the phrases from the Bible. They have been read, repeated aloud and pondered for several thousand years. In hours of need when I want direction, comfort or wisdom and God’s spirit I find these phrases help me feel connected to the millions of people before me who have been inspired by these same words. I feel when I repeat these words I am unlocking the spirit that inspired those original first words. I feel at peace and grateful for any help that comes from above. I send a new phrase and a few sentence commentary once a week. Look for them in the future.
