Strengthen the hands that are feeble, make firm the knees that are weak, say
to those whose hearts are frightened:
Be strong, fear not!  ~Isaiah 35:1-6a, 10

You too must be patient. Make your hearts firm, because the coming of the
Lord is at hand. Do not complain, brothers and sisters, about one another,
that you may not be judged.  ~Jas 5:7-10

Today's Scriptures are full of hope.  God looks out for those of us with
feeble hands and weak knees.  He sees our interior strength and sends his
Son to be "God with us!"  He calls us to be patient and helpful to those
around us until the coming of his Son at Christmas, and at the end of time.

I pray that I may appreciate how much God loves me.  I pray that I may see
that my strength comes from within me, and that God calls me to help bring
about His justice and peace.
