Do you ever find yourself using a phrase again and again? I’ve been told I have “signature” phrases I use repeatedly:
“There is that” (in agreement with someone in a conversation)
“Be that as it may” (acknowledging a point in discussion that I probably don’t agree with)
“Nevertheless” or “Regardless” (listening to our sons but then laying down the law)
I turned my daily prayer themed calendar today and the saying is pithy (good economic word–look it up)
“Let prayer be the key of the morning and the bolt at night” quoted of Philip Henry (1631-1696; British Nonconformist clergyman and father to Matthew Henry renowned Bible commentator)
His simple words give such a clear picture of the importance of prayer: unlock your day with and to God and close the door to the day locking it into God as well.
Now I would much rather be known for reminders to pray or to look to God in faith through life’s challenges.
How about you?
