Live Wisely and Love God Wholly!
 
Likewise, I say to you, there are you in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.  Luke 15:10
 
I recommend reading Luke 15.
 
Eighteen of Monica Doddridge’s nineteen children died in infancy. When number twenty arrived he too appeared stillborn. But Philip cried out. Monica determined then to raise him for the Lord. He sat at her knees at a fireplace lined with Delft tiles illustrating the stories of the Bible. Philip was then orphaned and destitute. There seemed no way for him to afford an education. While praying, a postman arrived with a letter from a wealthy benefactor offering to finance his training. At age 27 Philip became head of the seminary in Northampton, England. He trained students and wrote books. The Rise and Progress of Region in the Soul is his most remembered book published posthumously in 1755. It contained 400 hymns of which “O Happy Day, That fixed My Choice.”
 
My prayer for the week:
Dear Lord, when our spirits are weary, You are with us. You give us energy and joy everyday. We are never alone because You walk with us. Thank you, Lord. Amen
