Today is Sunday, May 31st, 2009; Karen's Korner #1580

A 'Sunday Surprise' to make up for the Karen's Korner I missed on Wednesday!
"And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations,
knowing that tribulation produces perseverance;
and perseverance character;
and character hope.
Now hope does not disappoint,
because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts
by the Holy Spirit who was given to us."
~~ Romans 5:3 - 5
Life is unfortunately full of disappointments. But You, Lord, have given me hope that never changes and a love that will never fade away. Speak to my heart and give me the ability to overcome the struggles that are a part of life. Help me to look beyond my own circumstance and see Your purpose for me. I thank You for the challenges of life that help me walk closer to You. Amen.
