IF YOU HAVE FAITH!

WEDNESDAY’S BLESSING

“How long, O Lord?  I cry for help, but you do not listen!  I cry out to you, “Violence!” but you do not intervene.  Why do you let me see ruin; why must I look at misery?  Destruction and violence are before me; there is strife and clamorous discord.  Then the Lord answered me and said:  Write down the vision clearly upon the tablets so that one can read it readily.  For the vision still has its time, presses on to fulfillment and will not disappoint.  If it delays, wait for it, it will surely come, it will not be late.  The rash one has no integrity; but the just one, because of his faith, shall live.”

The Book of the Prophet Habakkuk 1:2-3; 2:2-4

LIFE’S CHALLENGE

WEDNESDAY’S BLESSING

He is the Life that I want to live

He is the Light that I want to radiate

He is the Way to the Father

He is the Love with which I want to love

He is the Joy that I want to share

Without him, I can do nothing.

“Be a gardener.  Dig a ditch; toil and sweat and turn the earth upside down and seek deepness and water the plants in time.  Continue this labor and make sweet floods to run and noble and abundant fruits to spring.  Take this food and drink and carry it to God as your worship.”  –Julian of Norwich
