Today is Sunday. At church I read 1st Peter 4 (msg)
Verse 1 - Since Jesus went through everything you’re going through and more, learn to think like him.
Verses 12 - Friends, when life gets really difficult, don’t jump to the conclusion that God isn’t on the job. Instead, be glad that you are in the very thick of what Christ experienced. This is a spiritual refining process, with glory just around the corner.
I usually read the NLT (New Living Translation) of the Bible. Sometimes it helps to look at other translations to get the most out of what God is saying. Here in the message I like how he says, "This is a spiritual refining process."
The Full 40 is a Spiritual Refining Process. We are about to start week 2. Pray for a clear vision for this new week ahead. Prioritize Rest. Plan time for Exercise. Re-commit to good Nutrition. Educate yourself with God's Word each day. Last but not least is Wellness. Make time for yourself. I just got done playing guitar and now I am so relaxed and ready for a peaceful night of sleep. Hope you are too.
Jesus thank you for what you went through so I can live with the peace that I am saved. Thank you for your love. Help me to embrace the spiritual refining process. I want to be more like you. - Amen.
God Bless you with strength and peace this week.
