Dear Lord, please give us the strength and guidance to live our lives according to your word. Help us to realize that our temporary lives and whatever we possess are transient. Only your love and your kingdom are everlasting. I want to be faithful to you. Thank you, Lord, for your faithfulness.

Elaine Nunley, Hawkinsville
