My Word for Today


Simple truths for dealing with life,  from my morning devotional, by Charles Swindoll:

"Two words will help you cope when you run low on hope: accept and trust.

Accept the mystery of hardship, suffering, misfortune, or mistreatment. Don't try to understand it or explain it. Accept it. 

Then, deliberately trust God to protect you by His power from this very moment to the dawning of eternity."

In you, O LORD

I have taken refuge.
Psalm 31:1

I guess I'm to think about these two words - AGAIN. A friend from church emailed them this morning. Humm, perhaps I should stop and ponder....
