Ephesians 3:14-19 New International Version (NIV)
A Prayer for the Ephesians
14 For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
ROOTED IN LOVE ~
A prayer for the Ephesians can be a prayer for us. Living in a world that is different and our view points can often divide us. No matter what, we if decide live in kindness and doing what is right, our lives would be so much better. Even within one family, there are divides that happen and sometimes people ended up not speaking to each other. It is the differences or hurts that divide. God wants us to live in peace and get along with each other. Let go back to the root of life.
Psalm 139:14-15 New International Version (NIV)
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
ROOTED IN GOD ~
You were created by him and made unique.
Sometimes your tree of life might loose some leaves and it might change to a colder season in life, but God remains the same. Rooted in his scriptures of love, hope, peace and all good things. Rooted in doing the right thing and changing your own mindset when the winds of thoughts begin. Life is to be full of love and the joys of living. Yet, there are seasons that we cry and we learn through hard things. I have found myself living in Romans 12:1-2
Romans 12:1-2 New International Version (NIV)
A Living Sacrifice
12 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Let your roots go deep in God. Learn in each season of life and grow in changing to the positive. Let us love like God does and share it with others through out actions ~ KINDNESS.
My thoughts and prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
