Be a possibilitarian! These words, from minister and author Norman Vincent Peale, painted on a colorful piece of art in my home, were given to me by a caring friend, and are an encouragement to me each time I read them.
The words invite me to venture out of my routine and self focus(I love my routine and self focus!!) but are more than just an inspiration for positive thinking.
The words also connect me to the words of the Apostle Paul in his letter to the Ephesians, “ …To God be the glory… who by the power at work within us is able to do far more abundantly than we can ask or imagine.” The words of Holy scripture describe the generosity of God, and are an invitation healthordisease.com in faith to trust that God who creates and loves us, also desires the best for us, and for all creation. We can know and trust that the God of our life is working all things, in the fullness of time, now and eternally for good.
It is in the light and illumination of the gift of faith, xenical online uk that we can reflect anew on the gifts we have been given. We can see our very life as a gift, take nothing for granted, and give thanks. We can see time as a gift and choose to share it by listening to a child, a friend, or neighbor.
And we can imagine new possibilities to share our gifts at home, in our neighborhoods, and in our community of faith at St. David’s.
Come to church this fall! Bring your family and bring your gifts. Come with an open heart and mind to see the possibilities to both share what you have been given and to receive the gifts of others here at St. David’s. In doing so, we join with one another in the hope and promise of God, move forward in faith, and grow in faith together.
Wishing you blessings in new possibilities!
