Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
We find our patience and our faith in the Lord reassured by the uplifting words of Joshua 1:9 and 2 Peter 3:9.
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
"The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance." 2 Peter 3:9
In a time when our world seems to be giving many of us a chance to pause for reflection, we are blessed with the opportunity to refocus our hearts upon our Loving Creator. In these moments of introspect we look to God for direction and guidance, and we are always rewarded with renewed passion and purpose. Christ, The Beloved, was given to this world that we may truly know God's Compassion and Grace; we are so very cherished and adored by Him! The Lord is with us and guides us in every moment of our lives.
May our acts of faith and our prayers of devotion ever exalt Your Holy and Precious Name, O Emmanuel.
