SATURDAY 1ST WEEK

"For thy steadfast love was established for ever, thy faithfulness is firm as the heavens."
In our lives we are gifted with the beautiful ability to love and be loved. God has an unconditional and unfathomable amount of love for His children. Although He shows us this kind of love, we don't always reciprocate our love for Him and others. We are also blessed with the ability to love like God and love God as He loves us. Our gift to love and be loved is something not to be taken for granted, it is something where we should go forth and spread our love and God's love. The gift of faith, like love is given to be strengthened for God. Our faith in Him can constantly become stronger and it is with us every step of the way. He never leaves us on our own, He is always helping us even though it may not be apparent. We pray and ask God to bless us in our everyday lives.
Lord, bless us in our growth in faith and love, and help us to spread Your love. Give us the grace to grow each day, ever closer to You. Amen.
