Week Verses – Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

I chose this week’s verses for my friends.  I have several in need of prayer.  Some are just “kind of in a funk” right now and a few are going through some difficult times.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 (GW)

Two people are better than one because together they have a good reward for their hard work. 10 If one falls, the other can help his friend get up. But how tragic it is for the one who is all alone when he falls. There is no one to help him get up.

Asking for help is never easy but I hope my friends realize that they don’t have to go-it-alone and reach out when in need.

I also pray that I’m not so wrapped up in my own world to realize when they do.

Week 6 Verse – Matthew 11:28

It could be still learning the in’s and out’s of a new system at work. Perhaps it’s the cold, snowy winter.   Maybe it’s dealing with kids who feel cooped up and frustrated with the weather too… but this week I’m tired.  That’s what lead me to this week’s verse:

Matthew 11:28

 “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”

That’s good news… and so is this.  I slept 8.5 hours last night (with a Fitbit efficiency rating of 98%).  I’m feeling a little more refreshed and today is a new day.  Gonna make the most of it.  Hope you can to.

Here’s a song to add a little inspiration to the day.

Forgive Yourself

Earlier this week Chris Hogan shared a tweet that stuck with me:

“GOD forgave you. If you refuse to forgive yourself then you are choosing to resist his grace. #truth”

That’s a pretty powerful statement!  One worth remembering.

We all mess up.  We all sin.  It’s a given.  What we need to do is learn from it.  Learn to ask for forgiveness from God, from others… and from ourself.  I do realize from my own experiences that this can be easier said than done.

It’s funny how things work out.  As I was trying to decide if I wanted to write about this topic something happened that made the decision clear.  My Mom would call it a “God Wink.”  The first tweet I saw this morning was from Pope Francis:

“Sometimes we are saddened by the weight of our sins. May we not be discouraged. Christ has come to lift this burden and give us peace.”

I hope you can take comfort in these words.  I know I do.
