Grace and Peace to you.
Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the realm of heaven.
— Matthew 5.2
Blessed are those who are weak,
for God’s infinite power is in them.
Blessed are the losers
for they are receivers.
Blessed are those who do not believe,
for God believes in them.
Blessed are the lives that are all messed up,
for God is in them.
Blessed are those who appear worthless,
for they are not.
Blessed are the ugly,
for they will be called Beautiful.
Blessed are the wounded,
for God’s miracles arise in them.
Blessed are those who are judged and condemned,
for they are not judged or condemned.
Blessed are the gentle,
for they have the power of God.
Blessed are you when you have nothing to say,
for you are a love note from God.
Blessed are you when you fail,
for God does not fail you,
nor fail in you,
but shines with glory and delight.
