Joy and Pain

Thank You, Father, for a beautiful day yesterday!  The opportunity to share in Ariana & Andrews special day and to catch up with other fine young people was a blessing. Looking ahead for this day please be with us – goodbyes are never easy. I pray for Massey, Karen and myself as once again life takes us down different paths. Thank You for the time we’ve had together.

Colossians 1:24-29 (<<click here)

Lord, You are showing me that I have the responsibility to proclaim a wonderful secret. At just the right time You came to us – a gift of unsurpassable worth! You came so You show us the way to have an intimate relationship with – by inviting You to live in us. It’s a wonderful gift and one that fills us with joy but it will not be a journey without suffering, for even Your journey was painful.

Help me with Your wisdom and direction, to warn and teach others about You so that we may all come to that point of perfection, that is maturity, that You have called us to. Help me to shepherd others along this life journey of joy and pain until we reach the end of this life, stepping across the threshold into Your wonderful glory for all eternity!
