heart and with all your mind, and love your neighbor as yourself. ( MATT 22:37- 39.)
Lord we start each day that You have already shown us by Your example how to live.
Help us to read Your Word and follow the directions You so graciously provide for us.
If we want God to lead us, we must be willing to follow Him.

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
The Grand Canyon Park bookstore operated by the National Park Service found itself in the midst of some controversy a few years ago when they were selling a book written by creationists much to the ire of the National Center for Science Education.
The book detailed how the Grand Canyon could have been formed from a “catastrophic” event – a catastrophe such as the flood of Noah’s day. Imagine that, it may have been a catastrophe that created such beauty!
Nearly 2000 years ago, the disciples witnessed a catastrophe -- the crucifixion of our Lord. But the Lord used this tragedy to redeem all mankind. This great catastrophe was turned to ultimate beauty.
Each of us has experienced tragedy in our lives. Inevitably the question arises -- Why? Let’s be encouraged by one of God’s most beautiful masterpieces. The Lord can turn our great catastrophes into great beauty -- into great victory!
Let’s turn to the Lord with our catastrophes. He can turn the most difficult tragedy into an incredible work of art!

At times I may put a lot of energy into looking for love. I may want friends to tell me I matter, help me feel worthy, and give me a sense of belonging. It’s a tall order when I consider others are on their own healing journeys.
I turn to God and find wholeness. I release expectations about people, places, and things. I open myself completely to the Christ within and find the most satisfying love of all. I nurture this relationship through prayer, meditation, or journaling. I affirm: I am one with the love of Christ. Here, I belong.
I go within for every need. I listen for signals from nature, friends, and reading, then act on my guidance. All my human needs are fulfilled. I am whole.
He rained down on them manna to eat.—Psalm 78:24

to take off their clothes during an inspection Corrie stood in line feeling defiled and forsaken. Suddenly she remembered that Jesus had hung naked on the cross. Struck with wonder and worship Corrie whispered to her sister,Betsie they took off his clothes too
Betsie gasped and said I never thanked Him.
It is easy for us to live thanklessly in a world that is full of trouble, struggles and woes.
On any given day we can find many reasons to complain. However, Psalm 100 exhorts God's people to be glad, joyful, and thankful for it is He who made us and we are His
people, the sheep of His pasture. ( verse 3) as we remember who we are we can respond in thanksgiving. For even in the worst of times we can remember Christ love and sacrifice for us.
Don't let the brutality of the world take away your thankful heart. Remember you are God's child and He has shown you His goodness and mercy through His work on the cross.

Ballet dancers move across the stage with intricate steps and twirls, leaps and precision. Their movements appear effortless. In reality, they practice every dance again and again. They exhibit tremendous dedication, endurance, and zeal. Life energy flows through their bodies in a beautiful way.
God expresses vitality in me in many delightful ways, as well. In prayer, I pause to envision each part of my body. I bless every cell and affirm its wholeness. From the top of my head to the soles of my feet, I feel the energy of life flowing through me. I notice parts of my body that feel strong, and I affirm the restoration of any places of discomfort. I am whole. I am vibrant. I am alive!
God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being.—Genesis 2:7

The island received because it's name because sailors believed it was there through the charity of God.
Sometimes in life we have to navigate through seas of troubling circumstances.Like those sailors we need guidance and a place of safety we might wish foe our own Charity Island.
The Psalmist understood that God is the one who can bring tranquility to troubled waters and guide us to safe harbors.
He wrote, He stilled the storm to a whisper the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and he guided them to their desired haven ( PS . 107:29-30) .
While no one asks for the storms of life, they can multiply our appreciation for guidance and refuge God provides. He offers the light of His Spirit and His Word to guide us. It is the safe harbor of His love hat we long for. He alone can be our Charity Island

Every party, meeting, or event provides an opportunity to express divine love. I prepare by acknowledging the presence of God in those I will meet. When I arrive, love shines in and through me as I honor the divinity in all. I am patient, kind, respectful, and lighthearted.
The activity of Spirit in me—love—pulses through me. This constant circulation of energy acts as a magnet and draws love to me. I participate in life with an open heart and see the best in family, friends, and coworkers. I may say silently or aloud: Namaste. The love in me greets the love in you.
My enjoyment of giving and receiving love leads me to participate in living life to its fullest. I revel in the power of divine love.
Let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone who loves is born of God.—1 John 4:7

Jesus taught us to love one another as ourselves. When we hear this, we may automatically think Jesus is speaking only about loving others. The truth is Jesus asks us to love ourselves first.
I am better able to care for others when I take care of myself. I honor my body temple by providing myself with good nutrition, adequate exercise, and appreciation for what I bring to the world.
I read uplifting books and magazines, I speak affirmative words about myself and others, and I refuse to be pulled down by another person’s pessimistic outlook. I look for and find the best in myself and in each person. In mind, body, and spirit, I take great care of myself.
Your eye is the lamp of your body. If your eye is healthy, your whole body is full of light; but if it is not healthy, your body is full of darkness.—Luke 11:34
