1 Mon, June 12 Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Colossians 3:23 Tues, June 13 So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7 Wed, June 14 Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love. 1 John 4:7 8 Thurs, June 15 Have you never heard? Have you never understood? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of all the earth. He never grows weak or weary. No one can measure the depths of his understanding. Isaiah 40:28 Fri, June 16 For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:16 17 Sat, June 17 For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God s glorious standard. Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. Romans 3:23 24 Sun, June 18 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.

They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:30 31 Sun, June 25 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow not even the powers of hell can separate us from God s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38 39 Mon, June 26 Then Jesus said, Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.
