Daily Inspiration, 7 Feb 17

“Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer. And let faith be the bridge you build to overcome evil and welcome good.”
Maya Angelou

“Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness.
Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.”
Scott Adams

“We are not perfectly free until we live in pure hope. For when our hope is pure, it no longer trusts exclusively in human and visible means, nor rests in any visible end. He who hopes in God trusts God, Whom he never sees, to bring him to the possession of things that are beyond imagination.”
Thomas Merton

 “So the people shouted, and priests blew the trumpets; and when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, the people shouted with a great shout and the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight ahead, and they took the city.”
Joshua 6:20

 MY PRAYER is for faith.  The kind of faith that takes holds of God’s promises as though they were the surest thing on heaven and earth, which they are.  As though they were intended especially for each of us, which they are.  As though they were for such a time as this, which they are.  Scott Adams speaks of there being no small act of kindness, I would go so far as to say there is no good thing which is small at all, not when our hopes, and our prayers, and all our longings are behind it. Our prayers can cross borders, our hopes throw out the very ropes of heaven, in our earnest desire to see His victory in our lives, in our communities and our world, we build bridges of righteousness, avenues of opportunity, openings for his goodness and justice and might to prevail.  He is faithful, as we hold steadfast in our belief, and trust, in Him to fulfil his promises.  Let us hold steadfast together.  God’s will will prevail.

These are drawn from daily prayers and reflections I write my Chaplaincy colleagues.
