WORDS FOR REFLECTION
“Turn, O LORD! How long? Have compassion on your servants! Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, so that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. Make us glad as many days as you have afflicted us, and as many years as we have seen evil. Let your work be manifest to your servants, and your glorious power to their children. Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and prosper for us the work of our hands—O prosper the work of our hands!” Psalm 90:13-17

WORDS FOR REFLECTION
... these are times that are more open to the creative energy of God and the refocusing of our purposes and resources. New ways of staying in touch with families, friends, and colleagues are a part of the everyday rather than the exception. God has doors standing wide open for us to walk through and find new ways to reach people with God’s grace, love, and power and the promise of a Fourth Day lifestyle.
 

WORDS FOR REFLECTION
Almost a century ago, English mystic Evelyn Underhill (1875–1941) wrote: “If … we desire a simple test of the quality of our spiritual life, a consideration of the tranquility, gentleness, and strength with which we deal with circumstances of our outward life will serve us better than anything that is based on the loftiness of our religious notions, or fervor of our religious feelings. Tranquility, gentleness, and strength … This is the threefold imprint of the Spirit on the souls surrendered to His great action.”
