[Jesus told His disciples:]
You will be handed over to the local councils and
flogged in the synagogues.
On account of me you will stand before governors and kings
as witnesses to them.
And the gospel must first be preached to all nations.
Whenever you are arrested and brought to trial,
do not worry beforehand about what to say.
Just say whatever is given you at the time,
for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit.
(Mark 13:9-11, NIV)
My Lord, sometimes You seem to lead me into difficult situations.
Sometimes You force me to deal with
difficult decisions and
Sometimes You allow
loss to enter my life.
I will accept each unpleasant circumstance
as a new place to witness to You.
