What we believe about God is the most important thing about us.
Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us,
for as many years as we have seen trouble.
We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.
Feel at peace the day after a swear word bad day even if all the problems didn’t go away because your God is bigger than all the crap piled around you.
Sometimes I feel a tad sorry for Christians who “have it easy.” I find it easier to run to Christ being a broken mess.
Walking to church
A God who provides!
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
