“When God our Savior revealed his kindness and love, he saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy.

He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit.”

~Titus 3:4-5 NLT~


Pray for people who let evil thoughts control what they do.  Sometimes they do things that have the potential to hurt many people.  One again, a terrorist tried to kill many people in NYC.  I’m thankful that the bomb malfunctioned and did not hurt as many people as it could have.  I pray that as the devil tries to disrupt our lives, we are aware of his evil plans and do not succumb to them. 

Instead of following the devil, I choose to think of many people who go out of their way to be helpful to others.  We all make choices every day.  Let’s choose the better path.
