GPW Minute for 8/13 - Intellectual Hope!

Hope and Intellectual 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 We fail to listen as we ought. We don’t share our thoughts well. Hurt feelings result, but open, honest communication clears the air again! WE’RE PRAYING FOR YOU “Lord Jesus, enter the space between me and those I love so that the devil would not get a foothold left open by our arguments. Amen.” RENEWAL MOMENT Take a deep breath. Exhale Slowly. “Lord, have mercy.” Thanksgiving for the gladness that comes from good conversation! MARKER OF WELLBEING: Intellectual As I grow in God’s grace of Intellectual KINDNESS, I am finding joy in CURIOSITY, listening and speaking in a beneficial way.
