Today’s thought – The Year Begins

April 15-16 ground prep 001Preparing the ground,
Lord, please prepare my heart for your opportunities.

Good Morning

1 Chronicles 28:20
And David said to Solomon his son, Be strong and of good courage, and do it: fear not, nor be dismayed: for the Lord God, even my God, will be with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee, until thou hast finished all the work for the service of the house of the Lord.

The year begins,
and all its pages are as blank as
silent years of the life of Jesus Christ.
Let us begin it with high resolution;
then let us take all its limitations,
all its hindrances,
its disappointments,
its narrow and common-place conditions,
ans meet them as the Master did in Nazareth,
with patience,
with obedience,
putting ourselves in cheerful subjection,
serving our apprenticeship.
Who know what opportunity may come to us this year?
Let us live in a great spirit,
then we shall be ready for a great occasion.
~~George Hodges

Preparing . . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
