Thich Nhat Hanh, Lenda Honegger, Book of Psalms, Book of Lamentations, Elisabeth Elliot

Dear Readers,

Despair wrenches the heart and paralyzes any sense of joy.
Trust in the Lord's love for us and the comfort from knowing
He hears our cries for help can lift us and lead us toward
lives of hope and redemption. He does not abandon us.

God's Perfect Child


Truth pour over me as a healing garment
Filling me with hope and love and gladness.
I feel its power of love wiping away all sadness.
When down in the depths, the ladder of hope
enables me to climb the heights on the wings of glory.
My gratitude increases, I claim my heritage as God's own child.



Lenda Honegger
Christian Science writer


__________


Hear my prayer, O Lord;
listen to my cry for mercy.
In the day of my trouble I will call to you,
for you will answer me...
For you are great and do marvelous deeds;
you alone are God.
Teach me your way, O Lord,
and I will walk in your truth;
give me an undivided heart,
that I may fear your name.
I will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart;
I will glorify your name forever.
For great is your love toward me;
you have delivered me from the depths of the grave.




Psalm 86:6-7,10-13
The Holy Bible
New International Version


____________



I called on your name, O Lord,
from the depths of the pit.
You heard my plea: "Do not close
your ears to my cry for relief."
You came near when I called you,
and you said, "Do not fear."
O Lord, you took up my case;
you redeemed my life.



Lamentations 3:55-58
The Holy Bible
New International Version

The Last Word:

Either we are adrift in chaos or we are individuals,
created, loved, upheld and placed purposefully,
exactly where we are. Can you believe that?
Can you trust God for that?


Elisabeth Elliot (1926 -   )
Christian author and speaker

NOTE FROM LISA:
