The life we create is useful to God only if it is consistent with Jesus Christ’s foundation.
From 1 Corinthians 3:10-11: “According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and someone else is building on it.

From Psalm 23:5-6: “You prepare a table before mein the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil;my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow meall the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord my whole life long.“
From 1 Corinthians 13:12-13: “For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known. And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.”

Sharing unbridled truth
Caring for love’s duet
Joy shines at each sunset

Blessing each day and night
Confessing true feelings
Boundless and holding tight
Listening to God’s love
Nurturing lifetime’s stage
Embracing each moment
Unhurried as we age

The sufferings that the Lord allows in our life are given to us for His good purpose. Whenever God allows suffering to remain, He gives grace to endure it.
From 2 Corinthians 12:7-9: “Therefore, to keep me from being too elated, a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to torment me, to keep me from being too elated. Three times I appealed to the Lord about this, that it would leave me, but he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.'”
