Ephesians 4:26-32 New International Version (NIV)
“In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry,27 and do not give the devil a foothold. 28 Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need.
29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. 30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
LETTING GO OF WHAT I CAN NOT CHANGE ~
God gave me compassion one to another. I do my best to look through eyes of forgiveness and living in peace. Something just happen to one of my friends and it brought back negative thoughts to my own life. I had to cast it off and now that it was lies told about me. The crazy thing was in those lies, it changed destiny for my life, my family and others too. In that lie someone told about me, I had to get rid of the bitterness that filled my heart up. It brought anger and I didn't like it. It took time, but God gave me peace over it all and I did forgive others. The Bible tells me I must forgive as christ forgave me over things too.
Mark 11:25 New International Version (NIV)
And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”
God, as this new day begins, let new thoughts be good ones. Help us to see ourselves the way you do and live in the freedom of choices. Each of our choices not only affect us, but can affect someone else. Let our lives be like a lighthouse of peace and rest. Rest in knowing you are able to handle this day just fine and our thoughts are powerful. Sometimes we just can't see out of a situation, but you already have that situation in the works of something good. Yes, even the negative things can turn out okay. We can over think and teach us to rest totally in your will. We agree on miracles for lives who need them and count blessings of all we do have in life. Help those who need to let something go they can't change in life. It's not always easy being human, but it's great to know you are here with us God. Thank you for all you given us and helping us daily. AMEN
I know that somethings brings me to our knees, others make me upset and yet I know that God is the answer to all things. I've seen miracles and I know holding onto God is the key to getting through hard stuff. It's a new day filled with opportunities of life. Purpose good thoughts and actions.
