Walking Through Life God's Way

First Post of February, Prayer requests & 1 Peter 1:3-9

Praying for Baby Jackson, Vladimir B, Jill's Family, Kim Hoegfen, and Deanna Peter's Dad.

God's word is always a good way to start a month. I found great comfort in these words today. They are 1 Peter 1:3-9.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

You know God has great mercy and even in our suffering, He is refining us for great things that will bring complete joy and restoration of life. You know you are loved, Don

Thank you, Don. We are struggling with Jackson's situation this week, so your words are uplifting and encouraging. May Jesus Christ be praised!
