Psalm 37:3-4 New International Version (NIV)
3 Trust in the Lord and do good;
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
4 Take delight in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Psalm 75:1 New International Version (NIV)
We praise you, God, we praise you, for your Name is near;
people tell of your wonderful deeds.
Ecclesiastes 3 New International Version (NIV)
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens.
Giving is often thought of as money. Today I want to point out the blessings that surround us. Living kindness is giving out what the word of God says to do. Not all people see life through the eyes of God and they focus on themselves. What can I get next or what's in it for me? I only know a few people like this and it's sadness my heart. Life does need to be about us, but it's about others too. A fine balance of money, time, sharing, giving and living in the middle of God's peace. I find at the end of the day, things I wish I had done a little different at times. Most of the days, I find myself in true peace of knowing I did my best today and good job Sparkie moment.
How about you? Do you live in the peace of God daily? Do you trust the Lord with all your heart? Giving our lives to God is easy. We simply ask God to forgive us for sin and come into our hearts. Changing some old habits and turning to God for guidance. That guidance comes from the Bible, friends and a good church. A place of worship is important and surrounding yourself with people who continue to learn as well. Nobody knows it all in life and that's a fact.
I find myself daily telling God I give you all of me today. Help lead me and guide me with your grace. I am human and I realize how much my life matters to some. My example will go further than I will ever know in life. Kindness to others just shines and I see that. I hope your day is filled with peace and love that God gives each of us. Our own choices matter and never forget that. Purpose this a good day and guard your heart. People will say words that hurt at times, but don't let them plant in your heart.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
