22 May 2024


A good morning with the peace of the Lord to everyone. For today, Wednesday 22 May 2024, the thought that I felt in my heart to share with you has as its key verse:
II Corinthians 4:16 (NIV)

“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.”

Life has a way of throwing pressure on us so strong that some feel overwhelmed. Failures in which some would like to quit and give up everything. A pain so strong that it penetrates the depths of their being.
It seems like you're constantly being beaten down, and yet, you've made it this far. You may have failed, but you haven't given up yet. Continue to hold on to that ray of hope, called faith in the promises of the Word of the Lord, waiting for God to show himself powerful and faithful. All things, including what has been said so far, work together for your good, so that the glory of God will radiate in my life. Even though it may seem that life has hit you badly, this has helped to grow your trust in the Lord!
As life continues to bring forth its share of battles and storms, even though it may seem like the outer person is slowly wearing away, your inner being is renewed and reinvigorated. Day after day we train ourselves not to focus on what we see, but rather to meditate on what we cannot see. May God open the eyes of our hearts to see Him and His Kingdom!!! Don't let yourself be discouraged by the things of the world, but run the race of life with your gaze fixed on Jesus!

Together we pray to the Lord telling him: God of love, I thank you for how you encourage me with your word. I want to trust only in you. Increase my faith... In the name of Jesus, Amen!
With love, Ivano Salerno
