"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12



“There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven’t yet met.”- William Butler Yeats

thinking out loud...



Tough day today.

I was struggling in my mind after an emotional day. The thought came to me to ask God for a message by flipping the bible open to any page and reading the first thing I laid my eyes on.

I did.

My eyes immediately became fixated on the words that appeared before me:


"For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us." - Romans 8:18


Thank you, Jesus! I wait with hope and joy for that glory to be revealed.

Great words - and let us not forget how difficult it was for Paul to speak those words - remember what Paul did for a living before he was converted? Paul WAS a Roman....

Prayers and hugs -
