A new sign in Shepherd's Walk along the Pathway.
As we approach Holy Week on bended knee,
may our hearts reflect the entire passage.
1 Peter 1
Praise to God for a Living Hope
3 Praise be to the God and Father

of our Lord Jesus Christ!
In His great mercy
He has given us new birth
into a living hope
through the resurrection
of Jesus Christ from the dead,
4 and into an inheritance
that can never perish, spoil or fade—
kept in heaven for you,
5who through faith
are shielded by God's power
until the coming of the salvation
that is ready to be revealed
in the last time.
6In this you greatly rejoice,
though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.
7These have come so that your faith—
of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire —may be
proved genuine
and may result in
praise, glory and honor
when Jesus Christ is revealed.
8 Though you have not seen Him,
you love Him;
and even though you do not see Him now,
you believe in Him and are filled
with an inexpressible and glorious joy,
9 for you are receiving the goal
of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
13Therefore, prepare your minds
for action;
be self-controlled; set your hope fully
on the grace to be given you
when Jesus Christ is revealed.
14 As obedient children,
do not conform to the evil desires
you had when you lived in ignorance.
15 But just as He who called you
is holy,
so be holy in all you do;
16 for it is written:
"Be holy,
because I am holy."

22 Now that you have
purified yourselves
by obeying the truth
so that you have sincere love
for your brothers,
love one another deeply,
from the heart.
23 For you have been born again,
not of perishable seed,
but of imperishable,
through the living and enduring
Word of God.

God Eternal
May we see, feel and taste that You are good and that Your loves endures forever. Teach us through our sufferings to TRUST YOU fully so that You [and we] may be found faithful!
In Jesus' Name, Amen!

  3. I enjoyed my restful time on the path here this morning, Stephanie. I'm filled up with hope despite what I see in the natural.
