Positive Thinking

Philippians 4 8.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Philippians 4:8

Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praise worthy think about such things.

 

Fill your mind with positive thoughts that build you up. Focus on the positive things in your life and surround yourself with likeminded people.  Your thoughts become words, your words become actions, your actions become habits and your habits become your character.

Do Right

Isaiah 1 17.jpg

 

Verse of the Day: Isaiah 1:17

Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.

 

We each have been given gifts to serve others. Let’s be faithful stewards of God’s grace by using our gifts to do the right thing for others. Let’s give our time and volunteer our gifts and abilities to help those in need.  Do what you can, when you can, for as many as you can.

Christ Strengthens Us 

Philippians 4 13.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

 

Changing our old ways and habits can be hard when we try to do it by our own strength and often we fail. The good news is we don’t have to do it all alone or by our own strength.  We have Jesus on our side and we “can” do all things through Christ who strengthens us.  Give whatever you are struggling with over to God and let Him be your strength.

Gentle and Humble

Matthew 11 29

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 11:29

Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

 

If your life feels out of control, in turmoil or you’re feeling angry, Jesus is the answer.  Jesus was a great example of how to be gentle and humble. Gentleness = kind, mild in temperament; Humbleness = respectful, showing a modest estimate of one’s own importance. Follow the example of Jesus Christ and you will find rest for your soul.

Protection and Peace

Psalm 3 5

 

Verse of the Day: Psalm 3:5

I lie down and sleep: I wake again because the Lord sustains me.

 

If you’re reading this, you woke up this morning, not everyone did so be thankful for another day the Lord has given you. Remember, no matter what is going on your life you can rest in the arms of the Lord.  If you turn to Him, He will give you protection and peace.  Have a blessed day!

Generosity

Proverbs 3 28

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 3:28

Don’t say to your neighbor, “Go and come back; I’ll give it to you tomorrow,” when you have it.

 

God has been generous to us and has supplied all of our needs and therefore, we should be generous to others.  We have been blessed so we can bless others.  We’re not guaranteed tomorrow, so let’s help those we can today.  Now is always the best time to help someone in need.

God Hears Your Prayers

Jeremiah 29 12.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Jeremiah 29:12

Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.

 

How encouraging to know we serve a God who hears our prayers.  God promises us that when we call on Him and pray to Him, He will listen. Even if He doesn’t answer our prayers the way we think He should, He hears you. Keep praying, keep praising, keep worshiping because He is listening.
