May the sun bring you new energy by day.
May the moon softly restore you by night.
May the rain wash away your worries.
May the breeze blow new strength into your being.
May you walk gently through the world and
know its beauty all the days of your life.
~Apache Prayer

This is how God showed his love among us: He sent His one and only Son into world that we might live through Him.  ~1 John 4:9   ✝

Who chisels your life?


The Lord chisels your life. The Lord shapes your life. The Lord is the source of all that you have. True or false?

This is what the psalmist tells us:

“If the Lord does not build the house,

The work of the builders is useless;

“If the Lord does not protect the city,

It does no good to the sentries to stand guard.

It is useless to work so hard for a living,

Getting up early and going to bed late,

For the Lord provides for those he loves,

While they sleep.

(Psalm 127:1-2)

Put all your trust in the Lord.

Surrender your life to Him.

Depend on him alone.

He will never fail you.

Even if He appears to be failing you, He is actually chiseling your life; taking you slowly but steadily and surely to where He wants you to go.
