  1. Encouragement

    13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye. —Colossians 3:13 (KJV)

    Father in Heaven, Thank you for being a loving and gracious God. Thank you for offering forgiveness and the gift of new life in Christ. Thank you for your perfect and infinite love—nothing can separate us from your love. Help us submit to you LORD, as a humble servants, under the mighty hand of God. Thank you for Jesus who shines His light on our face. O LORD, we cannot shine any light on my our accord. Shine your love on us. Rid the darkness of this world. Through love of Christ, lead us to forgive others, as you forgave us. Your will, not our, be done—forever and always. In Jesus' name. Amen.


    About Author

    Experiencing the God of Joy: By centering our lives around Christ, we can experience true joy. "According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain." —Philippians 1:21

    Precious and profound. Thank you for the exhortation and encouragement to trust God to enable us, through His inexplicable grace, to forgive, and thus to enable His Light to shine through us. Your encouragement is almost "beaming", brother. God bless you.

      All glory to God. God can bring us to weep with joy through both our despair and joy. Thank you LORD for all things You bring us.
