Daily Scripture:

…whatever is born of God conquers the world. And this is the victory that conquers the world, our faith. (1 John 5 v4)

Daily Reflection:

When the chips are really down we may question our faith, wherever we are on our spiritual journey. At the moment, with so much of our lives being tested to the limit, we may find ourselves wondering when all this turmoil and stress will change direction and get better.
In all of this I urge you to hold on to your faith - even if it is as small as a mustard seed, because in Christ we are drawn into a life of extraordinary transformation where all things are possible. The ability to imagine a love that is up to this task of transformation is not easy - but what if we suspend disbelief and, just for a moment, believe that this is true. Have faith, because love conquers the world.
