Day 333: Why Then...

“I feel in myself the future of life. I am like a forest once cut down: the new shoots are stronger and livelier than ever. I am rising, I know, toward the sky. The sunshine is on my head. The earth gives me its generous sap, but heaven lights me with the reflection of unknown worlds. You say the soul is nothing but the resultant of bodily powers. Why, then, is my soul more luminous when my bodily powers begin to fail? Winter is on my head, but the eternal spring is in my heart."
- Victor Hugo

Day 232: Who...

Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul, and forget not [one of] all His benefits— Who forgives [every one of] all your iniquities, Who heals [each one of] all your diseases, Who redeems your life from the pit and corruption, Who beautifies, dignifies, and crowns you with loving-kindness and tender mercy; Who satisfies your mouth [your necessity and desire at your personal age and situation] with good so that your youth, renewed, is like the eagle’s [strong, overcoming, soaring]!  -Psalm 103:2-5

Day 231: Be...

Rejoice and exult in hope; be steadfast and patient in suffering and tribulation; be constant in prayer. -Romans 12:12

Day 329: My God Is Greater...

What then shall we say to [all] this? If God is for us, who [can be] against us? [Who can be our foe, if God is on our side?] -Romans 8:31 ♥

Day 328: Teach and Lead Me...

Teach me to do Your will, for You are my God; let Your good Spirit lead me into a level country and into the land of uprightness. -Psalm 143:10

Day 327: Not An Exception...

Not the exception. “I do not deserve to die for the crime of my father. I am NOT an exception.” One crime doesn't justify another. Choose life. Amen. ♥

Day 326: Thanksgiving...

Giving thanks for my family, good friends, another Thanksgiving, life, and my Great Savior. Without you I wouldn’t have much to be thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving friends and family, far and near! May your day be filled with reflections of... God's goodness and faithfulness in your life. For those of you who are lonely or heavy hearted, I pray that the kindness of the Lord would lift your soul as He carries you through this holiday season. He is so generous and you are SO loved.

Day 325: From You...

“Protect me, Lord God! I run to you for safety, and I have said, “Only you are my Lord! Every good thing I have is a gift from you.” Psalm 16:1-2

Day 324: Shine Your Light On Me...

Father in Heaven, shine Your light on me. Light the path ahead of me so I'll know where to place my feet. Bring clarity to my thoughts so I'll think rightly about You and about my life. Shine Your light in my heart so I'll love others the way You love them. And shine brightly in the dark corners of my life so that enemy will have nothing on me, nothing in me, and nowhere to hide. I belong to You! Amen.

Day 323: He Makes...

Though the fig tree does not blossom and there is no fruit on the vines, [though] the product of the olive fails and the fields yield no food, though the flock is cut off from the fold and there are no cattle in the stalls, Yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will exult in the [victorious] God of my salvation! The Lord God is my Strength, my personal bravery, and my invincible army; He makes my feet like hinds’ feet and will make me to walk [not to stand still in terror, but to walk] and make [spiritual] progress upon my high places [of trouble, suffering, or responsibility]! -Habakkuk 3:17-19

Day 322: Receive His Blessings...

Love this! :-)
Sow for yourselves according to righteousness (uprightness and right standing with God); reap according to mercy and loving-kindness. Break up your uncultivated ground, for it is time to seek the Lord, to inquire for and of Him, and to require His favor, till He comes and teaches you righteousness and rains His righteous gift of salvation upon you. -Hosea 10:12

Day 321: Age to Age...

"His glory appears like the light from the sun. Age to age He shines"

Day 320: Mind of Hope...

"This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope." Lamentations 3:21
Your state of happiness is controlled more by your head than your circumstances. A mind that replays every dark moment of the past and magnifies each gray feature of the day will despair. A mind that recalls the light of the past and sees the potential in each day will be filled with hope. Memory is a tool that can either constrict or comfort. It simply depends on where you decide to place your focus. -©AnnWilds2012

Day 320: Be Not Afraid...

But even in case you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, [you are] blessed (happy, to be envied). Do not dread or be afraid of their threats, nor be disturbed [by their opposition].  But in your hearts set Christ apart as holy [and acknowledge Him] as Lord. Always be ready to give a logical defense to anyone who asks you to account for the hope that is in you, but do it courteously and respectfully.[And see to it that] your conscience is entirely clear (unimpaired), so that, when you are falsely accused as evildoers, those who threaten you abusively and revile your right behavior in Christ may come to be ashamed [of slandering your good lives]. -1 Peter 3:14-16

Day 318: Nothing...

Alas, Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm! There is nothing too hard or too wonderful for You—. Jeremiah 32:17

Day 317: Overcome...

Do not let yourself be overcome by evil, but overcome (master) evil with good. ~Romans 12:21

Sunday, November 11, 2012

Day 316: Remember...

Tonight, I'm praying that you remember that He is faithful to complete the good work He started in you, that He never wastes a hurt, He is all-knowing, all-powerful, and unchanging. We have to keep our minds focused on Him and His goodness or we will never step into the life that He has in store for us...I pray that you remember that we serve a God of I am's and not what if's, we can't live in the what if's of tomorrow but in the I am's of today, I am your strongtower, I am your refuge, I am your provider, I am going before you to prepare the way, I am the King of Kings and Lord of Lords...keep your eyes on that and remember HE has never failed you before, He won't start today. Rest in Him

Day 315: Whom Shall I Fear...

The Lord is my Light and my Salvation—whom shall I fear or dread? The Lord is the Refuge and Stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid? ~Psalm 27:1

Wait and hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord. ~Psalm 27:14

Day 314: Fitted With The Armor...

When fitted with the armor of God, we will not be blindsided by the fiery darts of the Enemy. Past failures lose their power, for they have been dealt with. Present thoughts will not overrun me, for I am in command of my thoughts and I make...the final decision on what I believe. The opinions of others do not bombard me, for I have decided to believe what God says about who I am--regardless of what I or anyone else thinks.

~Dennis Jernigan, This Is My Destiny

Day 313: Let Us Pray...

Here is a great post I read this morning. It touched my heart…

Dear Friends,
It was 54 years after Jesus had risen to His throne of grace, that the emperor Nero had also risen to power in Rome. It was the best of times and it was the worst of times. But because Nero was a persecutor of the church, the world never looked so bleak. Amazingly, the Apostle Peter erected a billboard in those times saying; “Honor all men, love the brotherhood, fear God, honor the king.” 1 Peter 2:17

If 1st century Christians found a way to show honor to Nero (when persecuted), then surely we can find peace and fullness in obeying God, by honoring our President regardless of his differences with the Christian faith and values. Let’s pray for our leaders, as we are commanded to do in 1 Timothy 2:1-2: “I urge that…prayers and… thanksgivings be made…for kings and all who are in authority…This is good and acceptable in the sight of God.”

Never has it been more clear in my mind, that I am “Not Of This World”, and that the times are ripe for the harvest. While God’s judgment may be on this country, our gracious Lord is coming soon, and a revival is here! The times are perfect for looking to God, for loving each other, praying for our leaders, and reaching out to those who do not know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. More than ever before, we need to move onward and upward looking to and praising Jesus, our real hope!!! “Don’t burn out; keep yourselves fueled and aflame. Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant. Don’t quit in hard times; pray all the harder…” Romans 12:11-13
In His Grace,
Aurelio F. Barreto III, FOUNDER & CEO of Not of this World and C28

Day 312: I Will Exalt Him...

The Lord is my Strength and my Song, and He has become my Salvation; this is my God, and I will praise Him, my father’s God, and I will exalt Him. ~Exodus 15:2

Tuesday, November 6, 2012

Day 311: He Will...

Like birds hovering, so will the Lord of hosts defend Jerusalem; He will protect and deliver it, He will pass over and spare and preserve it. Isaiah 31:5

Monday, November 5, 2012

Day 310: I Will Vote For...

Yes, You are my Rock and my Fortress; therefore for Your name’s sake lead me and guide me.
~Psalm 31:3

Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His inspiration) and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience, [and] for training in righteousness (in holy living, in conformity to God’s will in thought, purpose, and action)
~2 Timothy 3:16

I will vote for the most pro-life candidate, because God hates the shedding of innocent blood (Prov.6:17).

I will vote for the most pro-Israel candidate, because God blesses those who bless Israel & curses those who don't (Gen.12:3).

I will vote for the most pro-debt reduction candidate, because the borrower is servant to the lender (Prov.22:7).

I will vote for the most pro-work candidate because God says if a man does not work, let him not eat. (2Thess.3:10)

I will vote for the most pro-marriage candidate, because God is for marriage as defined in (Genesis 2:24).

I will vote for the candidate who most closely believes government's purpose is to reward the good and punish the evil (Romans 13).

I will vote based as close as I can on God's Word (2Tim.3:16).

Don't forget to vote! #MittRomney/PaulRyan :-)

I'm Twenty-Three...

Where you go I'll go, where you stay I'll stay. ~Ruth 1:16

I can’t believe I’m twenty-three… wow! My twenty-second year went by fast. It was a challenging year of new growth and good things. I feel a bit closer to God and perhaps a bit smarter ;-) Haha… every year brings something new. Good and bad, yet always a blessing. I’m looking forward to what twenty-three will bring. Thank you God Almighty for another year, may my twenty-third be a great adventure together.

Day 308: Always...

As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more. ~Psalm 71:14

Friday, November 2, 2012

Day 307: Enemies...

"But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them who despitefully use you, and persecute you" Matthew 5:44.

It is easy to pray for those we love and those we deem worthy o...
f our prayers. Let us pray for those who hurt us and/or irritate us. I bet they hurt and irritate others too. What if they have no one praying for them? What if no one ever prayed for you? Hurtful people are hurting people and they need prayers too. ♥ ~ Debbie

Day 306: He Wants...

God loves you just the way you are, but He refuses to leave you that way. He wants you to be just like Jesus. – Max Lucado
