My adorable poodle is giving me the “Pleeease give me some of your food” look . . . and of course, I will oblige.
Dogs, with their loving expressions and gentle nature can make almost anyone’s heart melt. Even the hardest heart is swayed by their kind nature. What if we took a hint from our furry friends and tried a little bit harder to be gentle and kind?
Acts of kindness, in word and deed are extremely positive and powerful. But we will only ever see the power revealed when we can say— “Kindness begins with me.”
Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.
Corrie Ten Boom
Heavenly Father, as I go about my day, please help me to trust you with all my heart and not lean on my own understanding of what I see and feel. Remind me that you are good, that you love me, and are with me. And help me to trust that you are sovereign over all the earth. I commit this day to you right now, and all my loved ones. Keep us in your loving care. Amen
Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. — Proverbs 3:5-6

During my prayer time this morning I felt like I heard this question in my spirit—
If you had a common enemy, would you not stand against him?
That got me thinking about the widening political divide. We cannot be ignorant of the devils schemes. We have a common enemy— the devil! And he’s baiting us into war! People are not our enemy, the devil is. Hear God’s Word:
“Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8).
“Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”—Ephesians 6:11-12
