THE LOOKING GLASS

 PROVERBS 27:19 "As water reflects the face of a man or woman, so a man or woman's heart reflects them."

Oh Lord, You do not look at our outward appearance ~~ You look at our hearts.  So how can I see the condition of my heart?  By looking into the mirror of Your Word.  Your Word reveals to me my own thoughts, motives and values.  It exposes the content of my heart and shows me the kind of person I truly am.  But Lord, it is my deepest desire that my heart reflect the heart of Christ so that those who see me will catch a glimpse of His reflection.  I love You.  Amen.

Gratitude



Psalm 92:1 (NLT)
     It is good to give thanks to the LORD, to sing praises to the Most High.

Father, as prone as we are to first approach You with our own concerns, needs, questions and fears, today we just want to thank You!  Thank you that we can relate to you as our heavenly Father. Thank you for your heart felt way of understanding our weaknesses and failures.  Thank you for your gracious and merciful forgiveness. Thank you for your patience as you encourage us to share our heart with you.

Somehow we feel akin to the Psalmist when he wrote in Psalm 139:17-18 (NLT)  "How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! 18 I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! ……”

So Father we just want to thank you for your grace, generosity, kindness, and the many ways you show your love for us. Yes, today we just want to Give Thanks!!! We do this in the Name of Your beloved Son and our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

praying for those in authority

Father God,
Thank You for the gift of civil authority structures that You have appointed in this world. Use me for Your good purposes in the restraint of evil and for the encouragement of good. May we rightly honor them, and joyfully follow them. We would cooperate with them as conscience permits, but may we not be distracted from seeking first Your kingdom and Your righteousness. Teach us to love our neighbors as ourselves. Salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed. Grant us the incomparable blessing of the Spirit in us, that we would make no provision for the flesh to satisfy its desires. In all these ways may we relate honorably with all those around us and pray that Your will is done here on earth and that many will hear the truth and place their faith in Your Son for salvation.  Amen

Let Peace begin with Me

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be.
With God as our Father
Brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now.
With every step I take
Let this be my solemn vow.
To take each moment
And live each moment
With peace eternally.
Let there be peace on earth,
And let it begin with me.

Amen

earnestly.....

My prayer for all of us today and everyday:

"O God, You are my God; earnestly I seek You; my soul thirsts for You; my flesh faints for You, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water." (Psalm  63:1)

Are we seeking? Are we thirsting after Him in desperation? I pray that He will become the most important part of our lives. I pray that we seek His face with expectancy and desire. May we praise Him with all our breath.....

Amen

YOUR LOVE



 Your love compels me, Lord
To give as You would give.

To speak as You would speak.

To live as You would live.

Your love compels me, Lord
To see as You would see.

To serve as You would serve.
To be what You would be.

(Doug Holck 1982)

Confident Hope


Father, from a human perspective, it seems that the only thing certain in this life is that nothing is certain. So our hearts turn to You as the only source of our confident hope because of You are trustworthy. Indeed Father, as Jeremiah said: “…..blessed are those who trust in the LORD and have made the LORD their hope and confidence. Jeremiah 17:7 (NLT)

Father, how wonderful it is to have this hope as an anchor for our soul. Though we don’t always have the answers to the uncertainties of life we can always have hope in life. This is true because in our despair you give hope. In our loneliness you give comfort.  In our fear you give assurance. In all the aspects of life you give us Yourself. We say with the Psalmist: “When doubts filled my mind, your comfort gave me renewed hope and cheer. Psalm 94:19 (NLT)

So then Father we are encouraged to: “……hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. Hebrews 10:23 (NLT)

The Song “Simply Trusting” express it so well:

       Simply trusting every day,
Trusting through a stormy way;
Even when my faith is small,
Trusting Jesus, that is all.

Refrain:
Trusting as the moments fly,
Trusting as the days go by;
Trusting Him whate’er befall,
Trusting Jesus, that is all.

Thank you Father for this Confident Hope, in Jesus name, Amen.
