Seventh Sunday after Pentecost

Watchword for the week — There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. Romans 8:1

Sunday, July 16 — Isaiah 55:10-13; Psalm 65:(1-8),9-13
Romans 8:1-11; Matthew 13:1-9,18-23

The Lord God will wipe away the tears from all faces. Isaiah 25:8

Jesus said, “Your grief will turn to joy.” John 16:20 NIV

Divine Comforter, sometimes tears overtake us in the strangest places. We weep for those we have lost through distance, or death, or destroyed relationships. Our broken hearts cry out to you. Thank you for being the shoulder we can always cry upon, and the friend whom we can always count on. Amen.
