Forgiveness Serves Life

Forgiveness, rising up from the depths of the heart, is as necessary for cleansing the air we all breathe as the spring rains that nurture and serve Life. © 2016 Dennis Ference

Thought for the day: 29 August 2017

Few things are impossible...

I love this reminder that it’s the perseverance that counts – those small steps, the one foot in front of another; the feeling that what I’m doing is so small and appears to be so meaningless, so insignificant, when actually Perseverance says “Stand up, turn around and see where you have come from. Look at the distance travelled. See what you have already achieved.”

How encouraging!  I’m good at those small steps, and I believe I’m courageous – but I sometimes lose sight of the goal and forget to turn around and check out my progress. So when I do look – it’s a wonderful boost to my confidence and an encouragement to my soul. An encouragement to keep going. Keep going for just one more day – because today is all I have to be concerned about. Tomorrow will take care of itself.

Keep going. Persevere for one more day.

In need of rest

So utterly tired

Worn out, worn down

Worried and fatigued.

Longing for relaxation, to lie beside still waters

Yearning to take off this bag that I carry which holds the stuff of life

And put it down for a time

To breathe

To rest a while

Hoping rest will replace weariness,

calm replace concern,

peace replace turbulence;

That sleep will indeed knit the unraveled sleeve of all my care(s)

And I might know true rest.

My prayer that I might wake, my soul repaired

Renewed desire to reach out and touch the fabric of the day –

a gentle touch that greets the day

with gratitude and grace

rejuvenation of joy and strength

in peace, a soul refreshed
