ul> Baby takes its first breath, lungs filling with air and cries at being thrust from the safety of the womb into bright light. That first cry brings life, hope and dreams. When the baby’s mother is wheeled to the curb at the hospital, going home, optimism blossoms. She visualizes her baby in the future. First tooth. First steps. A smiling kindergartner in cap and gown. She sees happy days with a bright future, not thoughts of tragedy awaiting the warm bundle of life cradled in her arms. Although death begins at the moment of birth, the mother acknowledges only life and hope. Jesus, recognizing His destiny to die, said “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly, (John 10:10, Holy Bible, King James Version).

    Prayer : Eternal God, between the first breaths of life and the last before death, there is hope for each of Your children to make a difference. I pray for an expectant mother who has little hope to dream big, pray and nurture her child to be a winner for you. Amen.

If you have suffered from the actions of someone in your past or in your present circumstance, then you may ask ‘How could they?’ ‘How could they have betrayed me? How could they have abused me? How could they have ______?’ (you fill in the blank). There are no easy answers and no easy solutions to such emotional wounding. And yet, we read in John 10:10 from the Holy Bible, King James Version,

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I (JESUS) am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”

He died on the cross because…He knew they would betray and abuse you.

Prayer: Jesus, thank you for the blood you shed on the cross so that my emotional wounds can be healed. Where there is hatred, put love. Where there is confusion, put peace. Where there is bitterness, put forgiveness. Amen.
