Thanksgiving 

“There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.” (Ephesians‬ ‭4:4-6‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)
Heavenly Father Thank You for another blessed day. Thank You for all that You have blessed me with, my children, my family and friends. “I will praise the name of God with a song, And will magnify Him with thanksgiving.” (Psalms‬ ‭69:30‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Father God I praise You in sickness and in health, my good and bad times, through my laughter and my tears…Thank You Jesus for Your presence in my life. Father God help me to be patient with the shortcomings of others. I know people are always going to do and say things to upset me. Father help me to understand that it’s satan using them to attack me. Father with Your help and the guidance of the Holy Spirit I will not be broken; satan I am a child of God, I am here to do His work only…there is nothing you can do to cause me to stray my Father. “Have we not all one Father? Has not one God created us? Why do we deal treacherously with one another By profaning the covenant of the fathers?” (Malachi‬ ‭2:10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Holy Spirit take over my mind and my actions. Help me to see what’s real and be able to recognize what’s not. Lord Jesus I put all my faith and trust in You. I know You are always by my side. Lord, I ask for unlimited confidence and trust in Your mercy, and the courage to accept the crosses and sufferings which brings an abundance of goodness to us. Help us to love You with a pure heart, and to humble myself. Holy Spirit guide me that I may always accept and keep Jesus Christ in my heart. I accept You Lord Jesus with faith, hope and love. Lord I’m aware that there will be times when those I show compassion and empathy to may seem ungrateful. Help me Lord to be wise when this happens to know this is Satans tool too keep me from doing what You Lord want me to do. Enstil in me Lord Your love for all people.  I surrender myself to you Lord. I pray that I will constantly be aware of Your Will in my life. Amen

Guidance and Prayer

““Be strong. Take courage. Don’t be intimidated. Don’t give them a second thought because GOD, your God, is striding ahead of you. He’s right there with you. He won’t let you down; he won’t leave you.”” (Deuteronomy‬ ‭31:6‬ ‭MSG‬‬)
Heavenly Father thank You for another beautiful day. I honor You Lord in all that I do. Lord Bless my family and friends and l pray that we always feel Your presence in our lives.   Lord Jesus, may everything I do begin with You, continue with Your help, and be done under Your guidance. Father God guide me in all that I do…““Don’t bargain with God. Be direct. Ask for what you need. This isn’t a cat-and-mouse, hide-and-seek game we’re in. If your child asks for bread, do you trick him with sawdust? If he asks for fish, do you scare him with a live snake on his plate? As bad as you are, you wouldn’t think of such a thing. You’re at least decent to your own children. So don’t you think the God who conceived you in love will be even better?” (Matthew‬ ‭7:7-11‬ ‭MSG‬‬). Lord, I don’t want to spend my life pursuing love that’s not from You. If it’s not found in You, it’s not real love, because You are love. Today, I find my love in You. ““The God who made the world and everything in it, this Master of sky and land, doesn’t live in custom-made shrines or need the human race to run errands for him, as if he couldn’t take care of himself. He makes the creatures; the creatures don’t make him. Starting from scratch, he made the entire human race and made the earth hospitable, with plenty of time and space for living so we could seek after God, and not just grope around in the dark but actually find him. He doesn’t play hide-and-seek with us. He’s not remote; he’s near. We live and move in him, can’t get away from him! One of your poets said it well: ‘We’re the God-created.’ Well, if we are the God-created, it doesn’t make a lot of sense to think we could hire a sculptor to chisel a god out of stone for us, does it?” (Acts‬ ‭17:24-29‬ ‭MSG‬‬). Guide my thoughts with Your words of wisdom. Teach me to follow Your example. Increase my faith, hope, and clarity so I can turn hatred into love and conflict into peace. Lord help others to see the obstacles that You place in their paths.  God, my loving Father, your love gives life to the world. Bless and make holy all human love. May your love fill the hearts and homes of all families, so that the world may enjoy the peace and happiness that comes from You. In Jesus Name. Amen!!!

Guidance 

“We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him. We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one. And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life. Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.” (I John‬ ‭5:18-21‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)
Heavenly Father You are everything to me…“Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we may boldly say: “The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”” (Hebrews‬ ‭13:5-6‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Thank You Jesus for a beautiful new day. All that I do I do in honor of You with a thankful and grateful heart. Thank You Jesus for saving me from me. Guide me Lord, open my eyes so I can see more clearly Your plan for me. Father God I am thankful for everything You have done in my life, every lesson I’ve learned and everything I’ve overcome. Guide me to others so I can show them Your work in my life. Show me someone I can help. Thank You Jesus for Your unfailing, never ending love for me. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” (Hebrews‬ ‭13:8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Lord, I want to live my life according to Your Word. I want to know Your Word, I want to breathe Your Word, I want to know You for me and not rely on what others tell me about You. You inspire me Lord in so many different ways. “I have written to you, fathers, Because you have known Him who is from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, Because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, And you have overcome the wicked one.” (I John‬ ‭2:14‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Thank You Jesus for Your Word, it keeps me inspired and encouraged daily. Cover my family and friends with Your Blood and get us to and from our destinations safely. In Jesus Name. Amen!!!

Power in the Tongue

“But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”” (Matthew‬ ‭12:36-37‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)
Heavenly Father thank You, it’s a new day and a new journey. Lord show me how I can be a blessing to others. “The humble He guides in justice, And the humble He teaches His way.” (Psalms‬ ‭25:9‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Lord guide me, help me to watch my tongue. I know the enemy will use people and things to upset me and cause me to lash out with harsh words. “lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.” (II Corinthians‬ ‭2:11‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Holy Spirit with Your help and guidance I will not fall prey to the temptations I face everyday. “No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.” (I Corinthians‬ ‭10:13‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Father God You are my strength, my courage, and my Rock…You are the Great I Am…I can and I will resist every plot and plan the enemy has against me. Father God I will not give up and I will not give in. Lord Jesus all of my hope, trust, faith and belief is in You. “So the Lord said, “If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.” (Luke‬ ‭17:6‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Father God I can’t see You but I know Your here with me… with all my heart I love You. Every trial I’ve faced You guided me through, every heartache I’ve felt You’ve been here comforting me. The Angels You’ve sent my way, thank You Jesus. Father I pray that these words are encouraging and helpful someone today. Thank You Jesus for always inspiring and keeping me encouraged everyday. In Jesus Name. Amen!!! 

Peace…Faith

“For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (Hebrews‬ ‭4:12‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)
Heavenly Father thank You for a new day. Today Lord I worship You, I honor You. Father God make my thoughts agreeable to Your Word. Instill in me patience to wait on You Lord. I will live by faith. Thank You Jesus for never leaving my side. Lord thank You…when people and circumstances fail, You never do. I will not put my hope in things that will disappoint me, instead I will put all of my hope and trust in You Lord. I know You will never leave me nor forsake me. Lord thank You for accepting me even when I have trouble accepting myself. Help me to acknowledge the good qualities You’ve given me and keep my flaws in perspective as I find my confidence in You. Lord I know I will have setbacks and I will feel discouraged about things, but it will only be temporary as long as I stay focused on You and tuned in to You, I will fight off the devil and send him running every time. Thank You Jesus for Your peace. May Your peace reign in my family and friends and may our lives be a living testimony giving glory and honor to Your name. Lord, bring salvation, healing, reconciliation, and restoration to my family and friends wherever it is needed. Let there be no broken parts in my family. Lord fill us with Your goodness and overtake us with Your blessings. In the Name of Jesus let each and every one of us be united. Guide us throughout this day Lord. Father cover us with the Blood of Jesus and get us to and from our destinations safely, in Jesus Name. Amen!!!
“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good.” (I Thessalonians‬ ‭5:16-21‬ ‭NKJV‬‬)

Happy Tuesday 

“Mortals make elaborate plans, but GOD has the last word. Humans are satisfied with whatever looks good; GOD probes for what is good. Put GOD in charge of your work, then what you’ve planned will take place.” (Proverbs‬ ‭16:1-3‬ ‭MSG‬‬)
Heavenly Father all that I am, all that I do, every plan for my life I give wholeheartedly to You. Father God You are my guide, lead me down the road You have paved for me. “Point me down your highway, GOD; direct me along a well-lighted street; show my enemies whose side you’re on. Don’t throw me to the dogs, those liars who are out to get me, filling the air with their threats.” (Psalm‬ ‭27:11-12‬ ‭MSG‬‬). Lord, I want to talk to You and stay out of trouble. Strengthen and encourage me as I live by Your boundaries with my words. “The more talk, the less truth; the wise measure their words. The speech of a good person is worth waiting for; the blabber of the wicked is worthless.” (Proverbs‬ ‭10:19-20‬ ‭MSG‬‬). Holy Spirit take Your place within me. I need and long for Your guidance and direction in my life. Thank You Jesus for my Counselor the Holy Spirit. Guide my tongue today let no negative words pass my lips…“Watch the way you talk. Let nothing foul or dirty come out of your mouth. Say only what helps, each word a gift.” (Ephesians‬ ‭4:29‬ ‭MSG‬‬). Holy Spirit help me to not only watch my tongue but to avoid it participating in slander and gossip. “A bit in the mouth of a horse controls the whole horse. A small rudder on a huge ship in the hands of a skilled captain sets a course in the face of the strongest winds. A word out of your mouth may seem of no account, but it can accomplish nearly anything—or destroy it! It only takes a spark, remember, to set off a forest fire. A careless or wrongly placed word out of your mouth can do that. By our speech we can ruin the world, turn harmony to chaos, throw mud on a reputation, send the whole world up in smoke and go up in smoke with it, smoke right from the pit of hell. It only takes a spark, remember, to set off a forest fire. A careless or wrongly placed word out of your mouth can do that. By our speech we can ruin the world, turn harmony to chaos, throw mud on a reputation, send the whole world up in smoke and go up in smoke with it, smoke right from the pit of hell.” (James‬ ‭3:5-6‬ ‭MSG‬‬). Father in the Name of Jesus heal the sick remove any disease and ailments they may be suffering from. Lord wrap Your arms around those that are grieving and give them the comfort that they need. In Jesus Name. Amen!!!

Thank You Jesus…I have You everyday. I trust in You, I believe in You, I have faith in You. “For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees?” (Romans‬ ‭8:24‬ ‭NKJV‬‬), “For we walk by faith, not by sight.” (II Corinthians‬ ‭5:7‬ ‭NKJV‬‬).

Father, God, I know that through You I can overcome any and every obstacle, so I ask You to help me live in the peace that You’ve provided for me. All of my trust is in You Lord. “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the LORD and depart from evil.” (Proverbs‬ ‭3:5-7‬ ‭NKJV‬‬).

Amen!!!

Thank You Father for a new day. I am so blessed to know You Lord Jesus. Direct my steps today Father. Open my heart to love, compassion, honesty and forgiveness in Jesus Name. Father I know I may have family and friends that are holding onto unforgiveness in their hearts. Lord Jesus please touch their hearts today. Let them see and know how important it is to forgive. Remind us Lord that You died for us, and that You forgive us everyday. No matter what we do You still forgive us. “I will cleanse them from all their iniquity by which they have sinned against Me, and I will pardon all their iniquities by which they have sinned and by which they have transgressed against Me.” (Jeremiah‬ ‭33:8‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Thank You Jesus for walking with me. Lord I give You every obstacle, every challenge I face…it’s all in Your hands, I will not complain not will I worry for I know Lord that everything is in Your hands. “And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; For You, LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You.” (Psalms‬ ‭9:10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Father God , You alone are my strength. I won’t let Satan make me a weary or doubtful but I’ll remain strong in my walk with You. “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.” (Ephesians‬ ‭6:10‬ ‭NKJV‬‬). Father show me what is wrong in my life. I open my heart to You. Change me Lord. No matter what I’m faced with today good or bad I’m putting all of my faith, belief and trust in You Lord. You are the Great I Am and all things are possible through You. Father God thank You for these words and inspiration. I pray that I am able to be a blessing to someone today. In Jesus Name. Amen!!!
