Wish Wand (poem)
5 After all, who is Apollos? Who is Paul? We are only God’s servants through whom you believed the Good News. Each of us did the work the Lord gave us. 6 I planted the seed in your hearts, and Apollos watered it, but it was God who made it grow. 7 It’s not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What’s important is that God makes the seed grow. 8 The one who plants and the one who waters work together with the same purpose. And both will be rewarded for their own hard work. 9 For we are both God’s workers. And you are God’s field. You are God’s building. 1 Corinthians 3:5-9 NLT
Prayer That Works by Jill Briscoe
17 Elijah was as human as we are, and yet when he prayed earnestly that no rain would fall, none fell for three and a half years! 18 Then, when he prayed again, the sky sent down rain and the earth began to yield its crops. James 5:17-18
1Kings 19 (Elijah on the mountain)
“I am not what I have.
I am not what I do.
I am not what others say about me.
I am God’s beloved.”
Jonathan Merritt quoting Henri Nouwen
“The first half of life is to recognize how deeply we are beloved. The task of the second half of life is to recognize that everyone else is too.”
Stephanie quoting Richard Rohr
