(verse of the week)
But we have this treasure in earthen clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed . . .Therefore do not loose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed from day to day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal (2 Corinthians 4.7-9,16-18).
(prayer of the week)
Lord, sometimes the road seems long, but we know you are with us and give us strength. Help us to lean into your grace and strength. Help us to be renewed by the water of Your Spirit and strengthened to finish the race you have put before us through your power and to your glory, amen.
Blessings –Pastor TJ
