Philippians 4:4-9 New International Version (NIV)
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
OH I CAN ~
Feel the peace of God
Living in the peace of God is amazing. So much changes over time and the one thing that changed in my life was the peace of God. I knew who God was according to the Bible, but I didn't know the true peace of God. That took time and I am so thankful that God open a new way of thinking for me. The word of God becomes alive and we learn to live in God's peace.
Romans 12:1-2 New International Version (NIV)
A Living Sacrifice
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.
LIVE IN GOD'S PEACE ~
Do not conform to the pattern of this world
Throughout the Bible are warning, stories, promises, victories and new beginnings. God's love shines through people, through the sky and his power endures forever. We must purpose good thoughts and actions daily. Giving thanks to God who wakes us up.
Psalm 136:1 (NIV)
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.
His love endures forever.
OH I CAN ~
See where God has brought me from in life. Through seasons of change and becoming stronger than ever. I know my God is able to handle my own and help me through things that I just don't understand. I will press through the word of God and see his plan for my life. I will purpose good days and I will share life with others. I can make a difference and I will. I hope you will too. I hope your "I CAN" will continue into a new day with positive thoughts and actions. I CAN see myself the way God does and I will praise him for daily grace.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
