Spiritual Resources:

God Is With Me

As our world is changing before our very eyes with the COVID-19, I wanted to encourage your hearts today with some promises from GOD’S word. He “is our REFUGE and STRENGTH. A VERY PRESENT HELP in trouble. THEREFORE, we will NOT FEAR,” because HE is our HOPE. Psalm 46:1,2.  In times like these, let us PRAY.  Let us HOPE in the GOD who holds the universe together. And let us TRUST in the ONE who promises to NEVER abandon us. Read more…

Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; 
courage to change the things I can and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; enjoying one moment at a time; 
accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; 
taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; 
trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; 
that I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him
forever in the next. Amen.  Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971)

 

"I will likely become infected in the next few months. It's just simple math that I have accepted. But I became a physician knowing the job incurred risk and that I have a duty to patients and society.” (James P. Phillips, MD, assistant professor of emergency medicine at the George Washington University) Read more…
