BE THANKFUL ~
Psalm 103:1-5 (NIV)
1 Praise the Lord, my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2 Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits--
3 who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
IT IS A GOOD DAY ~
Each holds it's own blessings. Praise the Lord from the middle of your heart. To many things happen in one day and we often focus on the negative. Let us focus on the truth of who we are in God, what he has already done for us and count blessings. Whatever we face today, we face it with hope and peace that God has this day in control.
God speaks about giving us the desires of our heart. Now in Verse 5 above, it speaks about God satisfies your desires with good things. I found when I gave my heart to God, I started new thinking. I saw how God's love was real and I had so much to learn. I find myself still learning years later and becoming closer to God daily. I purpose time to read, study and pray. I purpose time to cast away old thoughts or negative things that might pop up.
2 Corinthians 10:5 (NIV)
We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
IT IS A GOOD DAY ~
Time to cast down that crazy thoughts
Have you notice how quick one day can go by? Before you know it, we are in a new season of change. Summer is gone, fall is here and soon to change the time again. I can hear people say I can't believe it's already fall or almost the Holidays. Time goes by so fast and we miss out on daily communication with those we love. Frustrations of life can overpower us or just the busyness of one day. Take time to tell those you love, that you love them. Spend time with those you care about and send messages when you can't call. Life is short and lets focus on how important minutes are in one day.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
