Happy Monday! Make it a glorious day by enjoying this new “re-imagined” take on Passion’s classic tune:
What a blessed weekend we had! I worked, but it was a good working weekend. We made it to serve at church for our second week back! And I finished the weekend with an amazing run through Savannah. My phone died while running but I was able to snap one great pic before that happened. I wish you all a Glorious Week!
16Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters. 17Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. 18He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created. (James 1:16-18)
As James taught us yesterday, temptation and sin only comes from the enemy. And today James correctly teaches that “every good and perfect gift is from above.” We serve a God who has always stayed constant in His goodness to mankind. God gave us life, and while that in itself should be enough, He blesses us throughout our lives, watching over His children and blessing those who believe in Him beyond their comprehension by supplying more than they could ever hope or imagine. Take a look at your life and all the “good” gifts you have. Then take a moment to thank God for all these good and perfect gifts.

Prayer and meditation: Pray for our country. Pray for love to conquer all. Pray for peace and common sense to infect the minds of Americans. Pray for civility and calm and for Christians to be a beacon of hope and consistency for all those who may face increased anxiety in this coming month.
