Faith.Forward! – 1/6/2019

Hey, Grace’rs,

Your Faith.Forward! Assignment: Take Stock! Go through a drawer, a closet, or your garage this week and thank God for what you have…and make a “give away” or “garage sale” pile of stuff you don’t need, want or use anymore. Also, check out this very easy way to bring sanity to your finances:

FAITH5: Tonight and every night before you head to bed spend some time with those you love and do this faith-building experience together (or, do it alone as a time of before bed devotions, keeping a journal and recording the following as an act of prayer):

You, Lord, give true peace.
You give peace to those who depend on you.
You give peace to those who trust you.
So, trust the Lord always.
Trust the Lord because he is our Rock forever. (Isaiah 26:3-4, International Children’s Bible)You will keep in perfect peace
all who trust in you,
all whose thoughts are fixed on you!
Trust in the Lord always,
for the Lord God is the eternal Rock. (New Living Translation)

People with their minds set on you,
you keep completely whole,
Steady on their feet,
because they keep at it and don’t quit.
Depend on God and keep at it
because in the Lord God you have a sure thing. (The Message)

Pray… for each other.
Bless… each other by affirming one thing you like about the other person. Bless each other by making the sign of the cross on each person, saying: The LORD bless you and keep you.
