“Wait, my dautghter.” “Be careful, keep calm and don’t be afraid. Do not lose Heart.” …”Be still, and know that I am God..”-“Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?” – That the arrogance of man will be brought low and the pride of men humbled, the Lord alone will be exalted in that day.
“Mary….sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said….”Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”-In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength.”-When you are on your beds. Search your hearts and be silent.
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him: do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes…He will have no fear of bad news: his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord: His heart is secure – The one who trusts will never be dismayed.

Forgive our arrogance and pride. We have turned our backs on you and confess this and ask in the name of Jesus for your forgiveness. Purify our hearts that we may be found righteous in your eyes. In Jesus name. Amen

And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”the Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.HallelujahDear Father:Forgive us of any unconfessed sin our lives.
