To my Ultimate Family

The great dichotomy of this earthly life.
A journey of pre-determined time - 
filled with both obstacle and opportunity, 
pain (with purpose in it!)
joy mingled with tears, 
Slack-jaw moments of wonder and worry
Panoramic experience so intense - 
it physically hurts...

I'd like to 'present' my Ultimate Family with a prayer penned by Holley Gerth - 
a writer for DaySpring who drops regular doses of inspiration into my inbox.  
May the God of All Wonders gird us up for 2011 
making us willing and able to Worship rightly with ALL our life!

There are many uncertainties in our world
but what matters most will never change.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday
and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8
We believe You are with us, for us,
and surrounding us with Your love.
So do not fear, for I am with you…
I will strengthen you and help you. Isaiah 41:10
No matter what happens, You will guide us and fulfill Your purposes for us.
He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until 
the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:6
Even in hard times we can be confident that we will have victory through you.
In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. Romans 8:37
We trust you will take care of us and bless us in more ways than we can imagine.
God will meet all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19
We give each moment and every day to You.
Most of all, we give ourselves too.
Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Matthew 5:10
written with love for you by holley

    PS - I was thrilled to get a copy of the CCS choir CD for Christmas. It's been playing in my car ever since!
