Wow, my last few posts have sounded pretty depressing, haven’t they? Sorry about that. Well, I’m glad to say that after a good pity party I’m much happier. Thank you all for your sweet comments, they were very encouraging!
Mainly this week I’ve been working on putting previous convictions into action so here are some verses that have really inspired me this week.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.
Be kind any compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him.
And this lovely prayer from Ephesians 3:16-19
I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
