Today Reminder – 10 April 2017

A reminder for today
For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. (Hebrews 4:12)

It is Monday and I must admit I wanted to stay at home today. I am just not ready for this week and I fear I am a little negative. So today, just in case my negativity is contagious I am going to give you a little inspiration for the day. Are you ready? Here it comes.

“God does not give us everything we want, but He does fulfil His promises, leading us along the best and straightest paths to Himself.” –Dietrich Bonhoeffer
