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

1Kings 19 (Elijah on the mountain)

The Critical Journey

English Lessons

“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

This is what the LORD says: “Where is your mother's certificate of divorce with which I sent her away? Or to which of my creditors did I sell you? Because of your sins you were sold; because of your transgressions your mother was sent away. Isa 50:1

I gave faithless Israel her certificate of divorce and sent her away because of all her adulteries. Yet I saw that her unfaithful sister Judah had no fear; she also went out and committed adultery. Jer 3:8

Verses about endurance
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.
Romans 5:3-5

Advice for Unemployed
Know who you are
Know what you want
Know how to go get it
Know how to keep it
Activity-get out of the house
Attitude-you control your attitude

Advice for those walking with unemployed
Practical help such as; gas gift cards, grocery gift cards, networking
*If you give to someone who's unemployed, don't do it anonymously. You may perceive your anonymous gifts as being selfless, but it may make the receiver feel unworthy of your acknowledgment. There is already so much shame associated with unemployment, that if you give a card or money or groceries without signing your name, it may feel like you don’t want to be associated with the unemployed.
