Apr.7/21 – Good timber does not grow with ease; the stronger the wind, the stronger the trees.

goodTimber

When we are in the midst of life’s storms, troubles and concerns we don’t see them as building blocks. It’s hard. But once we come through the storm we are stronger and have gained knowledge and foresight. We can help others with our experiences. Remember if God brings you to it… He will bring you through it.

Peace to you.

Mar. 31/21 – You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving.

Givewithoutloving

I read we must always test our motives. You see the human is but a self serving being. Am I  genuine or filling a selfish need? Is it my personal ambition or am I being obedient? Read 1 Corthinians 13, it talks of the excellence of love. Verse 13 But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.

Peace to you.
