Heartlight Daily Verse 9/23

 

September 23
 
We also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.
 
Thoughts on today's verse
 
I remember the old Corrie ten Boom line, "Thank God for the fleas." The fleas kept the German soldiers out of the barracks in the concentration camp where she was imprisoned. This allowed her to minister and visit with those who were being persecuted. There she could show and share Jesus.

Prayer:
 
Mighty God, I confess that I get impatient and frustrated with difficulty, pain, and suffering. Please give me more compassion and a better listening ear, so that I may bless those who need love and grace. Through Jesus I ask it. Amen.
