GPW Minute for 8/11 - Emotional Hope!

Hope and Emotional Wellness  (Hope is the feeling you have that the feeling you have will get better) A WORD FROM THE LORDNot only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance;  perseverance, character; and character, hope.  And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” Romans 5:3-5 A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT How suddenly the atmosphere can change, at home, at church at school. Thanks be to God that forgiving grace brings new beginnings! WE’RE PRAYING FOR YOU “Lord Jesus, we sin against You when we sin against each other. Forgive us, mend our brokenness and bring us the joy of living together in love once again. Amen.” RENEWAL MOMENT Take a deep breath. Exhale Slowly. “Lord, have mercy.” Thanksgiving for the joy of restored relationships! MARKER OF WELLBEING: Emotional As I grow in God’s grace of Emotional PEACE, am finding joy in HARMONY with others by the healing power of forgiveness.
