Lap 13: COT/BOM – QIC quoted Philippians 4:13 which is seen on many posters and t-shirts during the Boston Marathon and says “I can do all things through him who strengthens me”. Noted that while this is commonly use as inspiration, it was written by Paul while he was in prison as a way to highlight the virtue of contentment. We prayed that we will have contentment in times of difficulty and that we remember we can endure them with strength from the Lord above.
Thanks the opportunity to Q today!
