From The Friendship book-2001
THIS “Creed” was said to have been written in New Zealand by a keen walker called A. H. Reed:
“I believe in the gospel of work, of laughter of goodwill to men; In the power of choice between good and evil, of reaping what we sow;
In life beyond and the imperishability of character and thought; In the evolution of soul; In God, the all-good, all-wise and ever present;
And in Jesus Christ who revealed him to us. With supreme confidence I believe in the reunion of loving hearts in the hereafter.” A fine creed to live be, surely.
- Francis Gay
No one realises the fullness of God’s love as do those who suffer, yet in faith believe.
Remember: only what you give can God multiply back. If you give nothing even if God were to multiply it, it would still be nothing.

‘‘Those who look to Him are radiant with joy; their faces shall never be ashamed.’
- There is something different about people who are trusting the Lord. - As we trust in Him, something about the way we look changes.
- Instead of despair and hopelessness, there is confidence and joy. - Don’t look at your circumstances, but look to Him and He will lift you up.
PRAYER: Lord, I lift up my eyes, above the troubles that are around me, and I look to You. You are my hope, You are my salvation and You are the One Who comes and lifts up my head. Amen.
-Pastor Andrew Roebert-
