Thought For the Day: Our God is the Source of all Healing

Blessed are you, gracious God, source of all healing.
In Jesus Christ you heal the sick
and mend the broken.
He is the source of healing and forgiveness
and of the fullness of life found only in you.
By your Spirit, you come upon all
that we may receive your healing touch
and be made whole,
to the glory of Jesus Christ our Redeemer.
For these and all your mercies, we praise you:
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit:
Blessed be God for ever!

Thought for the Day: Be Comforted- The Lord Is Always With You!

Psalm 27

The Lord is my light and my salvation;
  whom then shall I fear?*
 the Lord is the strength of my life;
  of whom then shall I be afraid?
When evildoers came upon me to eat up my flesh,*
 it was they, my foes and my adversaries,
  who stumbled and fell.
Though an army should encamp against me,*
 yet my heart shall not be afraid;
And though war should rise up against me,*
 yet will I put my trust in him.
One thing have I asked of the Lord;
  one thing I seek;*
 that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
  all the days of my life;
To behold the fair beauty of the Lord*
 and to seek him in his temple.
For in the day of trouble
  he shall keep me safe in his shelter;*
 he shall hide me in the secrecy of his dwelling
  and set me high upon a rock.
Even now he lifts up my head*
 above my enemies round about me;
Therefore I will offer in his dwelling an oblation
  with sounds of great gladness;*
 I will sing and make music to the Lord.
Hearken to my voice, O Lord, when I call;*
 have mercy on me and answer me.
You speak in my heart and say, 'Seek my face.'*
 Your face, Lord, will I seek.
Hide not your face from me,*
 nor turn away your servant in displeasure.
You have been my helper;
  cast me not away;*
 do not forsake me, O God of my salvation.
Though my father and my mother forsake me,*
 the Lord will sustain me.
Show me your way, O Lord;*
 lead me on a level path, because of my enemies.
Deliver me not into the hand of my adversaries,*
 for false witnesses have risen up against me,
  and also those who speak malice.
What if I had not believed
  that I should see the goodness of the Lord*
 in the land of the living!
O tarry and await the Lord's pleasure;
  be strong and he shall comfort your heart;*
 wait patiently for the Lord.
