30 Days Of Gratitude … Day 12

As a new day arises fresh and anew, so is my gratitude renewed. 🙏

“Give thanks to the Lord of lords: to him who alone does great wonders, who by his understanding made the heavens, who spread out the earth upon the waters, who made the great lights – the sun to govern the day, the moon and stars to govern the night…” (Psalm 136:3-9).

Whenever I have a question (when don’t I?)
Or I just need a place to ‘be’
I take myself outside (Gods House)
It’s where I feel closest to Him. (always)
I sit in silence (me silent?!)
Only to be serenaded by the song and
chirps of my backyard cardinals. (Bird music)
And
I pray.
And
I heal.
And
I praise Him for this
life of mine.
That only He can give me.
I Am Thankful
And
I Am Grateful

30 Days Of Gratitude..Day 10. Veterans Day

Lord I pray for a veteran. The one who sacrificed, who served, and did us proud. I pray for the home-grown hero who was on the front lines where fear and fate intersected. I pray for a veteran on a military base, a veteran who served in a hospital, classroom, or office. I pray for a veteran who staffed an embassy, who guarded our leaders. The veteran I pray for is in Your perpetual care, and in my heart forever. Amen

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”
Joshua 1:9

30 Days Of Gratitude… Day 7 God’s Word

Day 7…I Am Thankful and Grateful for my love of books and reading. Today I am lost ( Actually Found..in God’s Word.)

Jon 2:2 – saying,
“I called out to the LORD, out of my distress,
and he answered me;
out of the belly of Sheol I cried,
and you heard my voice.

There are four things said about the Word of God. It is alive, “All Scripture is God-breathed.” It is powerful. “It is powerful to convict; powerful to convert; powerful to transform; powerful to revolutionize.” It is surgical, “sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit and joints and marrow and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” It is victorious, “There is no creature that is not manifest before Him, for all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.”

“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight; but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.” (Hebrews 4:12-13)

Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. ( John 17:17)
