It is amazing how the Lord makes our plans play out just as they should when we give them to Him. The outcome may not look at all like what we planned at the start, but how blessed we will be to see everything came to fruition at the end, just as He planned.
In this day and age, who couldn’t use more strength and peace!!?!!! May we each find all we need in the Lord who is the God eternal, the God who gives and provides all the strength and peace His children ever need. May you know and feel His peace today!
No matter what or who comes into our lives, we have an eternal God who is on our side, in our court and cheering us on…playing offense and defense on our behalf! He is our faithful Provider, Protector and Deliverer! We can rest in that and rejoice!
The greatest place of true rest is under the shelter of our God who truly is our refuge, sanctuary and fortress. As a mama bird protects her young, He will shelter us under the shadow of His Almighty Wings. Don’t ya just love that!!?!!!
The uncharted waters of this life can be furious at best, but we have everlasting hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, who is not only an Anchor for our souls, but ‘The Anchor’ for every storm! Through Him we have full access to the very presence of God. How glorious!
Nothing we do for others goes unnoticed by God…not the sacrifice of time and energy or our labor of love. As we pour our presence, service, prayers and thoughtfulness into other’s lives, God knows, sees, and He is our ultimate rewarder.
With all the temptations in this world – food being only one of them – it is comforting to know that God always gives us a way out, a way to avoid doing things that we will regret later. Even when we are faithless, He is ever faithful. That is grace!
God offers His amazing love, endless mercy and infinite grace to anyone that will accept His free gift of salvation in Jesus Christ. This is where, when and how we become His beloved children, born into a new beginning and an abundant life!
Jesus taught the balance of speaking the truth in love, and He exemplified it as well. He’s all about relationships…in the church and the home, and mostly with Him. His Word is truth, and the truth is He loves us!
Love covers all…offenses of others, and mine too! The Lord is so good to show us the way to love and unity…and mostly, to friendship! And who doesnn’t need friends!?!! Today, I thank Him for YOU! May God bless each of you with love and friendship!
God blesses us with so many wonderful surprises in the here and now, but we have NO idea what unimaginable, supernatural things He has in store for us in the future, and throughout eternity. It is truly unconceivable!
Remain…that is all He asks us to do…to stay connected to Him, to love God and others as He has told us to. As we stay connected to Him…the True Vine…and drink deeply from the well of His Living Word, His love will flourish from our very souls.
Jesus’ life was plucked from Him at the cross to reconcile us to God and, rising again, He not only gave us eternal live, but abundant life here and now! Rather than just give us the bouquet, He gave us the whole field. Oh, what a God! Oh, what a Savior!
Each of us can be so thankful that our Mother’s chose to give us life! Whether she is here or in heaven, what a gift this life is…and how blessed we are to have it! Happy Mother’s Day to wonderful mothers everywhere!
The God of peace wants to be our refuge in every situation…telling us to cast, actually hurl, our cares upon Him. His shoulders are broad and can bear our every burden as He gives us unfathomable protection and peace. So don’t be shaken!
The Son, our Great High Priest…risen, perfect and holy…sits at the right hand of the Father atoning for the sin of all mankind. He accomplished the work He came to do, thus He sits, resting. And we, too, can rest in Him and His sacrifice once and for all!
God designed you, made you and is forming you more each day into the image of Jesus Christ…to do all the wonderful things He planned for you before the beginning of time! He NEVER looks at you in the mirror and wishes you were someone else!
Running life’s race based on our own strength, talents or personality will only lead to exhaustion and ultimate burn out. But as we trust in our real Power Source, the True Vine of Jesus Christ, we enter His rest…trusting Him to pour His life through us!
Friendship is a gift from God. It is a relationship that can be nurtured and will flourish over time as we support each other through all of life’s ups and downs. A true friend loves at all times and, praise God, Jesus is the best friend of all!
God gives us permission to rest in Him, to be anxious for nothing! He never slumbers or sleeps and He promises to be with us until the end of the age. Yes, we can lay our heads down and sleep with faith in the very Lover of our souls who cares for us!
Through Jesus Christ who signed our adoption papers with His own precious blood, we have full access to our Heavenly Father and the privilege of an intimate relationship with Him, wherein we too can call Him Abba…Daddy!
It is comforting to know that we can plan and, even as we may waver from time to time, the Lord is still in control. He watches out for us, directs our paths and makes sure His purposes are fulfilled in us, through us and for us! Oh, what a Savior!
He knows! He knows the work He has for you to do, your burdens, challenges, rejections, griefs, pain and multiple struggles… and He is with you. Your labor is not in vain, but in Him, for His glory, and He is faithful to carry you!
God’s grace is more than enough to cover all the sin of all the world all the time for all time… Through the Gift of His Son, this overflowing grace always has been, is now, and always will be AMAZING!!!
