هرگاه بتوانم بعد از هر شکست لبخند بزنم شجاع خواهم بود
Each day I notice the fingerprints of God around me. I see it in the sunrise or feel it in the warmth of my blankets on a cold winter night. Sometimes I see it in the rain and even the way a cup of coffee tastes. Why? Because these momentary pleasures are gifts. Each whisper of the essence of what eternity will be like with God. Had Jesus not died on the cross, these little moments would be empty distractions instead of eternal promises. The cross echoes the stories of what Jesus did for us. But some ask, “Why?” Why did Jesus have to die on the cross?
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.I do not give to you as the world gives
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
