Life's Relentless Sausage Grinder

On a scale of 1 to 10, what number would show up on your "faith meter" for this past week? Where do you need to have more faith in your life? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 1620).

On an individual basis I have been very copacetic this past week. I am retired and in many ways content. However, I have dear ones in my life that have been ground pretty fine this past week by life's relentless sausage grinder.  Stresses--they are aplenty taking a toll physically and mentally. My prayer for my friends is a simple one: "Lord be with my friends today and teach us all to believe without reservation that the forces of love and life are stronger and more durable than the forces of entropy and death. Father, confirm our belief. We look steadily to you and your love. Grant us your peace; and even though it's impossible for us to understand it now, may we sometime in the future look back on this time of stress and pain as a positive time proving that the most distressing problems are mere ciphers when compared to the light and love of your Kingdom (imminent both now and forever and shining in your grace). Amen."
