Philippians 1:1-7 King James Version (KJV)
1 Paul and Timotheus, the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, with the bishops and deacons: 2 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. 3 I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, 4 Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy, 5 For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now;
6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
7 Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart; inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defence and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers of my grace.
HOPE ANCHORS THE SOUL ~
Just knowing that God has begun a good work in me and it will continue, brings joy. I love verse 6 to be confident. God is good and we often forget that when faced with hard situation of life. It's hard to keep focus when life just consumes you. I've been there in life and I sit here today confident of know who I am in God. My mindset is valuable and I won't allow negative thoughts to get the best of me. I want to give my best to God and allow him to use my life.
One day is valuable in the big picture of life. My soul cries out to know God more and life as if today was my last day on earth. I want to leave a legacy of determination and be who God has called me to be. I want to forgive like I was forgiven. I want to encourage others, like others have encouraged me. I am a confident woman and I know that. I struggle with things at times because I am human. The bottom line is resting at night knowing you have done your best in this day.
THIS DAY ~ HOPE ARISES
Freedom is knowing that God designed my life, but gives an opportunity to grow daily. I do have desires of my heart and I have dreams. I am living some of my dreams right now and yet have others waiting patiently to be answered. I trust God with all my heart, but when asked the other day, I don't seem to trust him enough to write a book. I try and then struggle, I try again and struggle. I can write you daily and feel God as I write so strongly. I must find the confidence to succeed at writing the book. I would ask your prayers today for me to arise to my potential. I don't want to just hope I can, but to do it.
Psalm 118:24 King James Version (KJV)
This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
THIS DAY ~
I woke up and began to thank God for you (reader of my blog). I never know who reads this unless someone messages me. The other day I got a message from someone out of state and it made my day. I value that she wrote words of encouragement and I didn't know she read my blog. We just never know what one act of kindness can do for someone. I hope you see today that I care and my prayers are with you daily. Be confident that God has begun a good work in your life and will continue. So does my prayers for you, your family and friends. Purpose a good day!
