Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
I Thessalonians 3:7-13
No matter what challenges I face, or what chaos is whirling around me, if my heart is strengthened in love and holiness, I have all I need to follow Jesus’ footsteps through the storms of life. Love opens my hearts to God’s design for my life and the role of mercy in each and every relationship. An obedience to holiness, that is whole-ness, and all the humility that it entails, allows me to rest in the understanding that God is continually working things out for good – for me, for others and for the world at large – as much as we [I] have faith in his truth and love. Today how will I allow my heart to be strengthened in love and holiness? Christ Jesus, strengthen my heart in love and holiness.
Teach us to count our days that we may gain a wise heart. (Psalm 90:12)
There is something in humility that strangely exalts the heart.
