Congratulations, dear graduated friend! God will fulfill His purpose in you.
“If I walk into the thick of danger, You will preserve my life from the anger of my enemies.
You will extend Your hand; Your right hand will save me. The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me.
Lord, Your love is eternal; do not abandon the work of Your hands.” Psalm 138: 7-8
“It is a safe thing to trust Him to fulfill the desires which He creates”
“Give me the Love that leads the way
The Faith that nothing can dismay
The Hope no disappointments tire
The Passion that’ll burn like fire
Let me not sink to be a clod
Make me Thy fuel, Flame of God”
― Amy Carmichael
“Then will I go unto the altar of God, Unto God my exceeding joy;
And upon the harp will I praise thee, O God, my God.” (Psalm 43:4)
May times I need to be reminded of what God has already taught me, of what He has shown me.
Help me meditate on your word God, and abide where You have me. Teach me to stay, to persevere, to not give up.
Help me, Father!
I want to believe I’m cultivating such an attitude. To me, that sounds like being sweet, thoughtful, passionate, gentle and sensible. To have a deep commitment for long-lasting relationships and for ancient proven methods, for unshakable truths. To cling to the marvelous, miraculous ways of old.
May my whole life be dictated, defended and defined by this one old book: the Bible.
