You're too loved for that.


Bible Verse: 1 Corinthians 9:24-26

Don’t you know that all the runners in the stadium run, but only one gets the prize? So run to win.Everyone who competes practices self-discipline in everything. The runners do this to get a crown of leaves that shrivel up and die, but we do it to receive a crown that never dies.So now this is how I run—not without a clear goal in sight. I fight like a boxer in the ring, not like someone who is shadowboxing. CEB

Abba, forgive me because I tend to treat people the way they treat me. But I know I should show respect to all people and see them as You see them (with love). 5/17/2011

The Lord has met me while I was in pain and I am sure He will meet you in your own pain and struggles.
