Seek God—Prayer

God of mysterious ways, you take our fears and turn them into triumphs. You remind us that you are always with us and that we do not need to fear the wind and waves of life. Encourage us to step out of the boat; to come across these difficulties to your redeeming and transforming love. Give us courage and strength, joy and peace for all the times ahead. Amen.

Find Life—Personal Reflection

As you worship today and as you read these Scriptures this week, consider what God is trying to say to you today. How does God want your life or actions to be different because of what you heard?

We look forward to the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting – promises from God about how we have a future with hope in Him.  Pastor and author James Howell says that “this God draws us into the circle and bequeaths upon us an inheritance beyond all imagining.  All gift.  All wonder.  All good.  Whoever frailty we have suffered will be healed.  Whatever unbearable agony  we have endured will be more than made right.  Tears wiped away, no more sorrow.  Unfathomable beauty.”  How does the promise of God addressing the suffering, loss and inequity of the here and now give you hope about your future with God?
