I feel ugly.
To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.
For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks;
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
A continual dripping on a very rainy day
and a contentious woman are alike
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.
2 Corinthians 12:9
Father, refill me with your Holy Spirit.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering,
kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.
Against such there is no law.
Thank you, Lord.
