Strength for Each Task (Reblogged)

Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal comfort and a wonderful hope, comfort you and strengthen you in every good thing you do and say. (2 Thessalonians 2:16, 17 NLT)

How sweet to know that the Son of God has not only given us an eternal comfort, but also continues to comfort & strengthen our hearts in the paths He leads us on!

Prayer: “Be thou my strength and comfort this day and always. Amen”

Get Up and Try Again (Reblogged)

Ever heard the following song:

Get up and try again, smile away that pain
Brush away that tear, dear child your Father’s near
He will always understand and lend a helping hand
Lovingly He’ll say, “Get up and try again”.

As you go through the week, keep this in mind: No matter what has happened in the past, the Lord is closer to you than your very breath!

Gray Clouds (Reblogged)

A little prayer for the rest of the week….

Dear Lord, help me to know that no condition is permanent. And that grey clouds are just passing clouds that will soon be replaced with bright skies of hope. Teach me to say, “this too shall pass” when am faced with difficulties. Help me to hold on, while trusting you, one day at a time. Amen

Every blessing, with prayers….

Smooth mountains (Reblogged)

I’ve heard it said before: ‘child, if the mountain were smooth, you couldn’t climb it’.

There might be a reason for the mountain, and a purpose for its roughness. Wait patiently on the Lord to see you to the top!

God Sees The Best In You

Do you know people who only see the cup as half full? That’s not your God.

God always wants the best for you and sees the best in you. Sure, He wants you to “fix up” in those challenging areas of your life, but through it all, He’s rooting for you to get it right.

Imagine running in a stadium and you’re about to beat Usain Bolt in the 100metres; there’s someone cheering wildly in the crowds and shouting at the top of their lungs. That’s God cheering you on and waving a banner saying “You can do it!”. Just imagine that.

God sees the best in you, but how you see yourself matters. So today, look in the mirror, what do you see? I see greatness.

Morning into Dancing

“You have turned my morning into dancing”  Psalm 30:11.
“The wise King Solomon said ‘For everything, there is a season’ and goes on to list many events in life. When you’ve cried all your tears, dance. You’ll be surprised how therapeutic it can be”

Psalm 30:11 & 2 Samuel 6:14

(Excerpt from Richard Daly’s God’s little book of Hope)

Romans 12:12

On Thin Ice

Hard pressed, pushed to the wall
Till it feels like walking on thin ice;
When reason and logic seems more appealing
Than trust in a promise of providence;
When sight and the now more desirable than
Faith and hope in a better future.

But, we refuse to give in to the lure of the temporary
And yield only to the leading of the Dependable Hand.
In a world that constantly seeks to claw us in,
We pray that You would preserve our faith, Lord,
Till thin ice becomes a sure, immovable Rock of safety.
Help us look to You alone, the Author and Perfecter of our faith.
