The Dead Are Raised…

The Dead Are Raised...“The dead are raised.” Luke 7:22

“Blessed is the man who does not fall away on account of me.” Luke 7:23

Lord, please give me your strength to stand firm for you. May I see life sprout from the grave. Protect me today. Keep me from sin. Keep me from harm.

Lord, there are motives I cannot discover, dreams I cannot realize. Help me to persevere and push on to produce a good crop for you. 

Do Not Judge…

“Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord’ and do not do what I say?” Luke 6:46

May I racal your words today and DO what you call me to do.
