"In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls." 1 Peter 1:6-9
May your faith of gold flow freely and continually even as it traverses through difficult decisions and circumstances in life. As you boldly stand in your faith, i pray His glory shines through you for others to see and be filled with His love, peace and comfort too.
In the words of an old Irish Blessing--
May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face.
And rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
friend, we are loved and chosen by God,
