Week Ending Friday August 23, 2019
Devote at least 10 minutes of time to some good reading today. Remember, just as food is necessary to the life of your body, good reading is necessary to the life of your soul.
Sometimes hellos and goodbyes come spaced too close together.
Don’t judge yourself by your past. You don’t live there anymore.
Never look back, unless you are planning to go that way.”
Henry David Thoreau
Kindness is a language the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
Every different stage in life requires a different you.
Different is worth exploring. Just because something is new and different doesn’t mean you should be afraid to try it. May you be blessed with a sense of adventure that’s pleasing to God and worth it for you
Walk With Enthusiasm
So you’re trying real hard and the results range from “eh” to “oh no!” Keep trying, and keep tweaking it. May God bless you to walk through the trials and tribulations with enthusiasm.
Discipline, rigor, patience, self-control, dignity, respect, knowledge, curiosity, wisdom, ethics, honor, empathy, resilience, honesty, bravery, kindness and awareness. All of these are qualities to strive for, and habits you can develop. May God bless you with strong character and willingness to always be improving.
Life is a series of emotional opposites. You go from sadness to happiness, dejection to acceptance, and anger to understanding. Yet, your love of God knows no opposition. May you be showered with blessings that honor your Maker and celebrate the gift of an emotionally capable soul.
Growth & Beauty
When you plant a seed, you cover it with dirt and all you see is earth. Until the day you notice a fragile tiny little sprout. That’s when hope is realized and full potential is yet to come. Apply the same principles to your life and you will be blessed with growth and beauty.
Dear God, The churning in my belly is Your clarion call to me. You remind me You’re here, alive in my soul, guiding me through tough times, celebrating with me in my joy. I am amazed to be at One with You, Holiest of Holies, Kindest of the Kind, Loveliest of Love.
Wherever I am God is. When I am needy, God is giving. When I am rejoicing, God is clapping along. I feel God’s love overhead like a dome capturing the sunlight, warm and bright, covering me with protective embrace. Shout out Praise to God! Who, with infinite genius lives everywhere among us.
I Am Trying
O Lord, forgive me. For not laughing more, for stifling a smile. Too often I allow melancholy to overcome me. O Lord, forgive me. For my sometime lack of appreciation. I long to live in a state of gratitude. O Lord, forgive me. For letting even an hour go by when I neglect to praise You. I am trying. Thank You for Your blessings, You are magnificent and fill my heart with joy!
I am unwilling to settle for a life less than the one You have planned for me. Fortify me with loving thoughts, worthy deeds and words that persuade. Be with me on this quest, steady me as I pursue the path, open my eyes so I may know Your vision. Thank You O God for Your grand design. I follow Your lead.
Lord, I come today with a grateful heart and a word of thank-you for today. Let this day be one where all the glory goes to You. I pray for understanding of Your Word. I pray to able to help others and my life will not be in vain. Let me continue to show love in all I do. Amen

Teach me to number my days and recognize how precious they are. Help me spend them as I should.
Those the Lord has rescued will return. They will enter singing, crowned with everlasting joy. Sorrow and mourning will disappear, and they will be filled with joy and gladness.
I rise to the occasion and take matters into my own hands. I am courageous. I am supported.
I trust in the Lord with all my heart.
And they said to me “You’re crazy, it can’t be so.” I insisted. They told me, “Then it must be an angel.”
