God of Hope – Verse of the day – Day 53
Dear father, you and you alone are the hope of the world and I will call upon your name as I surrender to your will in my life. I can not have joy any other way for you provide all comfort in all situations and I count every experience of my life as total joy. When times of distress come I shall turn to you and call on you to bring peace back into my life. As it is written in Ecclesiastes, there is a time for everything. (Ecclesiastes 3).
As I move into another day given to me by grace let me find joy even in the mist of adversity. Let me be joyous and experience peace today. Let you holy spirit show me power today in this one truth that you are grace and truth and you lord are working in every area of my life, even in adversity.
David W. Aucoin
Reflection passage: Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 (A time for everything)
A Time for Everything
3 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

When God is involved, anything can happen. Be open. Stay that way. God has a beautiful way of bringing good vibrations out of broken chords.
