Lent: Day 4 – Some say it takes a minimum of 30 days to train a specific behavior into a habit. Others say it takes a lifetime. I say it only takes one successful day at a time. All we really need is to be successful today and before you know it, many days will have become yesterdays. One day you will find your journey in this life focused on the hill, and know from whence your help comes. You will find that you remember the days of turmoil, only to remind yourself and others of how great God really is in this life, because of his mercy and his love, which endures forever. You live this journey, because He lives in you.
Philippians 4:10-20 I have learned to be content with whatever I have. I know what it is to have little, and I know what it is to have plenty. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being well-fed and of going hungry, of having plenty and of being in need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
Ezekiel 39: 21-29 They shall forget their shame, and all the treachery they have practiced against me, when they live securely in their land with no one to make them afraid, when I have brought them back from the peoples and gathered them from their enemies’ lands, and through them have displayed my holiness in the sight of many nations.
John 17:20-26 I made your name known to them, and I will make it known, so that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.
I will extol you, O Lord, for you have drawn me up,
and did not let my foes rejoice over me.
