prayerI’ve always believed in God, but for a long period in my life I hardly ever prayed. I may go to our Father in Heaven when I wanted something, but that was about it. Now I pray every day, sometimes several times a day. I go to God to give thanks. I go to Him to pray for others. I go to Him seeking continued happiness. I go to Him for pretty much everything. I believe He wants that kind of relationship with all of us. You don’t have to be eloquent with words to have a conversation with God. Talk to Him like you do with anyone. He wants to hear what’s in your heart. Give it all to Him & have faith that He is listening. He will give you exactly what you need.

Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer & supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known to God.

Matthew 11:24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe you have received it, and it will be yours.

1 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing.

Have a praying week my friends!!!

Your attitude & what’s in your heart will play a huge part in how you’ll be rewarded in your life. Always be thankful & have a happy & cheerful heart. Good things happen to good people.

Keeping our thoughts on the good things in life makes for happy & healthy living. If you want the negative out of your life, stop giving it space in your head. Where your mind goes is what you’ll focus on. Stay focused on the good.

Be careful what you believe in your own mind. Satan plants seeds there to keep you from what is good for you. Always pray about everything. Prayer brings wisdom.

Proverbs 15:15 All the days of the afflicted are evil, but the cheerful of heart has a continual feast.

Proverbs 28:26 Whoever trusts in his own mind is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered.

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers & sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things.

Life rarely turns out like we thought it was going to when we were young, but it definitely can end up better if we put our trust in God. With His guidance, all things are possible. He wants what’s good & pleasant for us.

puerto ricoPray for the people of Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria. The entire island is without power and facing many months of hardship. Pray for a break in the storms. Pray for communities and the island to come together and help their neighbor.

 mexicoflagPray for the people of Mexico following a devastating 7.1 magnitude earthquake and volcano eruption. Loss of life and injuries are reported as significant. Damage to buildings and infrastructure has been crushing. Mexico continues to recover from Hurricane Katia. Pray for a break in the storms and natural disasters. Pray for the Mexican communities in their time of need and hope.

Pray for this broken world…

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart & lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him & He will make your paths straight.

Matthew 19:26 But Jesus looked at them & said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

One of the biggest things I get from the Bible is that Jesus taught in love. He even loved those that hated him. There are so many verses in the Bible about love & that tells me that the greatest thing we can do is love one another. If we could all love each other a little more, this world would be a far better place. Spread love, it’s contagious.

Pray for Florida and America’s southeast. Pray for a break in the storms. Pray for communities, states, & a nation to come together.

1 Peter 4:8 Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.

1 Corinthians 13:13 And now these three remain: faith, hope, & love. But the greatest of these is love.

Have a loving weekend my friends!!!

It took me a long time to figure out, but I’ve learned I can’t do life alone or in my own way. I have to go to God every day for guidance. I have to listen & do life His way. I’d be completely lost & a huge mess if not for Him. Doing things my way led to depression. It made me want to hide from the world & want to stop living. I am thankful that my Father in Heaven was looking out for me. Go to God for everything!

Psalm 34:17-18 When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears & delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the broken-hearted & saves the crushed in spirit.

1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you.

Have a wonderful weekend my friends!!!

Pray for south Texas & now Louisiana. Pray for a break in the storms. Pray for communities, states, & a nation to come together. Let’s worry less about what we think a President should be doing or a preacher that we are judging. Decide how best we can help. Now isn’t the time to point fingers. Let’s be a nation of doing & not a nation that sits back & complains about what others are doing or not doing.

Romans 12:12 Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.

Have a hopeful Labor Day weekend my friends!!!

John 8:7 And as they continued to ask him, He stood up and said to them, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.”

Look at him over there, he drinks every day. We don’t want him around us or in our church. He is a sinner. Look at him, I heard he’s smoked weed. We need to stay away from him, he’s a sinner. See that guy? He’s been to jail. I don’t know why, but he’s obviously a sinner & breaks the law. And look at that one, he’s divorced & I’m sure he must not have been a good husband. Stay clear of him, for sure a sinner. Is that guy a sinner? Yep, and so are you for judging him. No sin is greater or less than another & only one person has the right to judge us. Am I a sinner? Yep. I sin every day & was that guy that I just described at different points in my life. Does everyone know my story? Nope. We all sin every day. Nobody is perfect. Instead of judging others & thinking we are better, let’s pray for each other instead…

Have an accepting weekend my friends!!!
