Changes

Change my heart, O God, make it ever true. Change my heart, O God, may I be like You.
You are the Potter, I am the clay…mold me and make me, this is what I pray.
Change my heart, O God, make it ever true. Change my heart, O God, may I be like You.

The Vineyard

Catch doing good/Compassion when not

Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.~Ephesians 4:32

Help

But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted;
you consider their grief and take it in hand.
The victims commit themselves to you;
you are the helper of the fatherless.
~Psalm 10:14

Answer

A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. ~Proverbs 15:1

Never give up/Nothing is too difficult

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. ~Galatians 6:9

Give good stuff

“Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.” ~Matthew 7:9-12

Expectations

For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family[a] in heaven and on earth derives its name.  I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. ~Ephesians 3:14-21

Smile

A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. ~Proverbs 17:22
