A Guaranteed Method to Succeed at Your Profession
“Commit your work to the Lord, and then your plans will succeed.” Proverbs 16:3 (New Living Translation)

We wait for the blessed hope of the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.
-- Titus 2:13
Let Him appear through your work.
Prayer: Jehovah Rabbi (God our Teacher) please guide my words and actions so that others may not only praise You but will become interested in joining our Holy family.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
