PLEASE PRAY for yourselves. Sometimes we focus so much on what is going on around us and for others who we care about that we neglect to pray for our own health – physical and spiritual. Pray for a renewing of strength, passion and closeness to God. Ask Him to identify our weaknesses and how we can better ourselves as we serve Him.
READ THE GOOD NEWS – Genesis 2:4-9 – As Spring approaches, let us be reminded of and thankful to God for His creation. As the colours from the daffodils, trees and sky start to shine a little brighter, let us seek to see God in all things, especially in the beauty of His creation.
