As I struggle for more words today to write, and as my anxieties of a final exam and final papers heats up, I was blessed with this:
“These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”
Courage is what people who live on the streets need to survive. But it is also the power one needs to step out and help those in need, or to walk up and introduce ones self to a stranger in need of assistance, or to visit a mean spirited neighbor who is lonely and afraid.
We all need courage. And Jesus reminds us that with our couage comes peace. Which each one of needs a refill of daily.
Meditate: May the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension,guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Phillipians 4:7)
Pray for the strength and courage for Helen and Susan who struggle to survive both on and off the streets, may God's peace be upon them today and may God grant them each a home to live in.
