Daily Scripture

‘God gives a hand to those down on their luck, gives a fresh start to those ready to quit.’ (The Message) Psalm 145 v 14

Daily Reflection

Many times, life has become hard, and I’ve been ready to give up. Stop trying, spend the day in bed, hope it will all go away…but I’ve learnt that “giving up” never changes my situation. It’s not that I need to try harder, work harder, be a better person – I could never do that on my own. I just need to tell God about it. Then I need to believe that only He can change things for me. God can change your perspective, God can change your thinking, God can turn a difficult situation into a much better one. God’s love, grace and mercy is new every morning, he is the Master of “fresh starts” and the first to reach out His hand to help you up.
