Do It with Love

1 proverbs 31 20

 

Verse of the Day:   Proverbs 31:20

She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.

 

As Godly women who love the Lord it should be our mission to help the poor and needy.  That doesn’t mean we all have to do extraordinary things.  Sometimes it’s simply a kind word or a sincere gesture.  Each of us should do what God puts in our hearts and do it with love.

No Other Way

1 John 14 6

John 14:6

 
Verse of the Day: John 14:6
 
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
 
Through the sacrifice made by Jesus on Calvary, God made a way for you to be saved from death and be with him in heaven for all eternity. There is no other way to come to the Father, but through the Son. Not by works, merit, or personal sacrifices. Jesus is the only way, he is our Savior, and there is no other way.

Enjoy Life

Ecclesiastes 3:12

Verse of the Day:   Ecclesiastes 3:12

I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live.

 

God has given you the gift of life and he wants you to be happy and enjoy it.  Spend time doing things that make you happy with the people you love and enjoy the blessings of God with a thankful heart.

Making Wise Decisions

1 james 1 5

James 1:5

Verse of the Day:   James 1:5

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

 

If you have a big decision to make that you are uncertain about, take it to the Lord in prayer.  God is wise and all knowing, the giver of all good things.  Bring your concerns to him with sincerity and ask for guidance and wisdom to make the right decision.

Verse of the Day:   Joshua 1:9

Have I not commanded you, be strong and courageous.  Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.

 

When you feel weak, afraid, or discouraged turn to God.  He heals the brokenness and brings peace and joy.  You don’t have do it alone, he’ll will be with you every step of the way.  Trust in God and he’ll get you through it.

Dark Days

1 psalms 42 5

Psalms 42:5

Verse of the Day:   Psalms 42:5

Why, my soul, are you downcast?  Why so disturbed within me?  Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

 

Life is not always sunshine and flowers.  There are days when bad things happen, days when sadness creeps in, or when we just feel lonely.  In these times we need to lift our head toward God and give praise to our Savior.  Thank him for all the good in your life.  Put your hope in him and rely on him to get you through even the darkest of days.

One of Those Days

Philippians 4:13

Verse of the Day:   Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

 

Every now and then I have one of those days when I feel so tired that everything just hits me all at once.   I just feel like climbing into bed and sleeping for a week but I know I can’t.  I have too many responsibilities to take care of.  So, I close my eyes and ask God to give me strength to make it through the day and I remind myself that I CAN do all thing through Christ who strengthens me.
