For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, so that by steadfastness and by the encouragement of the scriptures we might have hope.
Romans 15:4 NRSV
In courage your spirit is reborn as slowly you find your way back into life. You live again, resurrected from grief through acts of courage that transform your grief into a greater living faith. When you receive the promise of hope, you are blessed with steadfast strength through the encouragement of the scriptures.
God, on this day of rest my soul is rekindled with courage. Thank you for your steadfast instruction of my heart in grief. Amen.
My courage is from the hope of faith.
