City of Detroit, people of God, the world in which we live is a place of beauty. When we are permitted to open our eyes, we often see the sky beautifully adorned with clearness. A shade of blue which can't be copied. We hear the birds singing gloriously. Sounds of joy, cheer, signs of the beginning of a prosperous day.
We quickly prepare, knowing time is of the essence, as we head off to our respective places of employment or appointment. We are hopeful: Lord, give us this day our daily bread. Luke 11. Let today be a great one!

Well, as we know, things don't always go as planned, but the beauty of this story is: if things don't go as planned, we get to try again tomorrow. Same setting, same time, same place.
What we gain from this day to day extravaganza which we call life, is the knowledge that we need LOVE to help us along the way. We need our God, who's image we are created in, whose likeness is projected onto us through the knowledge of the glorious presence of Jesus Christ Our Lord. God's love (likeness) is imputed or assigned to us as a quality.
As the day goes on, things don't always go as planned, so God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16. No need to hide from the beauty, hide from the Love, God will cover us. Genesis 1.
Jesus Christ came into the world as the Light, full of grace and truth. John 1. Declaring the Spirit of God and imputing (assigning) the Spirit of Truth (The Holy Ghost) to His people as a qualilty to be comfort to them in their lives, to be a quality of comfort to the lives of others. Acts 1:8, 2:1-4.
It was the great love of God which caused His Son to be crucified. At the moment of departure from the cross, Jesus released this great LOVE ( HIS SPIRIT) into the earth to travel to the heart of the earth and the heart of every believer for the purpose of acceptance. Acceptance is the POWER.
So as we travel along the way Lord we pray: let us love one another and adhere to one another for we are attached to one another; Lord if it doesn't make sense, please open my understanding through that great spirit that you have assigned to me; help me to not be afraid, but as you have assigned to me the spirit of power, and the spirit of a sound mind, Lord make me able, courageous and aware that you are with me even until the end of the ages. For I am loved.
