GPW Minute for 8/15 - Relational Hope!

Hope and Relational 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 Pandemics can be hard on relationships, especially when excessive time together highlights our quirks and idiosyncrasies, but the unity of love overcomes times of strain! WE’RE PRAYING FOR YOU “Lord Jesus, when we drive each other a little bit crazy, bring us strength in our bonds of love that reflect our perfect bonds with You. Amen.” RENEWAL MOMENT Take a deep breath. Exhale Slowly. “Lord, have mercy.” Thanksgiving for the unity of love! MARKER OF WELLBEING: Relational As I grow in God’s grace of Relational PATIENCE, I am finding joy in my UNITY in Christ with spouse, family and church.
