Be Not 😩 Dismayed

Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.
~ Isaiah 41:10 [NLT]
Let’s stop running to the wrong things when fear tries to leave us tied up in knots. Let’s meditate on scriptures like Isaiah 41:10 so we can remember that God promises to be with us when life is terrifying. He says it over and over again because He knows that fighting fear is a part of being human. He is not upset that you are afraid rather He understands and is there to give you supernatural strength to reclaim your peace.

Trust in Jehovah, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on his faithfulness.
~ Ps 37:3

’Tis weary watching wave by wave,  
And yet the tide heaves onward;  
We climb, like corals, grave by grave,  
That pave a pathway sunward.  
We’re driven back, for our next fray  
A newer strength to borrow;  
And where the vanguard camps to-day,  
The rear shall rest to-morrow.
~ Gerald Massey

Be like the bird, that, pausing in her flight  
A while on boughs too slight,  
Feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings,  
Knowing that she hath wings.
~ Victor Hugo

Prayer

Eternal God, help me to realize that life is not only endless but, whether I live in love and obedience, or wait in neglect and indifference, that I can never separate myself from thee. May I be diligent in worthy endeavors to do my best for thee. Amen.

Joy Over One

In the same way, there is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God than over ninety-nine others who are righteous and haven’t strayed away!
~ Luke 15:7 [NLT] 

God’s heart is for the ONE.  He knows each of us by name and He desires that we all come home to him!  There is a party in heaven for every single lost broken soul that comes to know Jesus.  How can we help just one other come to know God?

Evening Prayer

KEEP HIS WAYS
Psalm 18:21-27

In Jesus’ Name, I Pray God’s Will for You

I pray that you will always keep the ways of the Lord and never turn away from them. May you follow all His laws that He has laid out before you. I pray that you will resist sin. I claim the Lord’s reward for you according to your righteousness. May you remain faithful and blameless, as He is faithful and blameless. I pray that you will be humble, for He brings low those whose eyes are haughty. May God give you the grace to keep His ways.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Staying Calm

A fool is quick-tempered, but a wise person stays calm when insulted.
~ Proverbs 12:16 [NLT] 

It’s easy to become annoyed by irritating comments, especially if they’re made by people on your questionable list. They tend to make us think, do, or say irrational things. Your day can then become unpleasant without you even knowing. However, others around you like your spouse, kids, or parents will be in tune. Instead of transferring your temper or irrationality, try to stay calm. The best way is to say a prayer asking God for patience within you and peace surrounding you.
