“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” – John 15:12 (ESV)

When we accept this commandment to love one another, we walk the path of joy. When we internalize this law, we become happy. May God fill your life with joy today as you share His kingdom with all people, both friends and strangers alike. Amen

“The Lord watches over you – the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.” – Psalm 121:5-6 (NIV)

During these past weeks of “shelter in place” due to the coronavirus, I have found myself reading through the book of Psalms. I have found comfort and solace in rediscovering how powerful these words speak to the essence of my soul. I invite you to join me and turn to the Psalms and allow these words of strength and comfort to bring peace to your life as we seek to understand our past and present while praying for a better future. Amen.

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let not your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” – John 14:27

In this powerful passage, Jesus promises to give His disciples the gift of peace. How difficult it must have been for the disciples to watch their Lord and Savior suffer and die on the cross. When life gets darker than you could ever imagine, never forget what Jesus has already accomplished through His death and resurrection. God’s gift of peace is waiting for you just as Jesus promised.

“Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger by the way you treat them. Rather, bring them up with the discipline and instruction that comes from the Lord.” Ephesians 6:4

We live in a world that is broken and confused. We sometimes question our values and what our expectations should be. Do you have a broken relationship that needs mending? Take the first step toward healing. Clothe yourself in humility, honesty, and love. Initially, it may be difficult, but God can heal your heart and lead you into a deeper, more loving relationship.
