LET GO, LET GOD (Today's Affirmation)

I am one with the presence of God that fills me and guides me.

My mind has tremendous power. With it, I formulate thoughts and perceptions that shape my everyday experiences. Yet sometimes I may spend too much time thinking instead of simply being.

Jesus taught us the importance of going apart for a while to rest and connect with God. I breathe and simply “be.” I cease my constant mental and physical activity. I stop doubting, stressing, or worrying. As I let go of the concerns of the day, I relax, and let God fill my heart, mind, and soul.

By letting go, I give my mind a rest and my heart full attention. I think less and experience more. I relax and breathe deeply. I let go and trust God. I am renewed and at peace.



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

We are a Work in Progress.

God is not finished with us yet. Oh, you may think He is. You may think you've peaked. You may think He's got someone else to do the job.
If so think again..
"God began doing a good work in you, and I am sure He will continue it until it is finished when Jesus Christ comes again"( PHIL. 1:6).
Did you see what God is doing? A good work in you.
Did you see when He will be finished? When Jesus comes again!

Let me put it this way, God ain't finished with us yet!!

Jesus will keep you strong until the end. So that there will be no wrong in you on the day our Lord Jesus Christ comes again. 1 CORINTHIANS 1:8.

I praise others and am blessed in return.

Children shine when they are praised by parents, teachers, and loved ones. They beam with pride when they are told they have done well, or when they are recognized for their talents. Although I am now an adult, I react in the same way when I am praised—I feel a sense of pride when others acknowledge my skills.

I can give that satisfaction to others by praising them, so they, too, feel the glow of accomplishment and appreciation. Today I make a conscious effort to praise others. I point out their strengths and recognize their abilities. We all enjoy being acknowledged for our uniqueness and for the gifts we bring to the world. Today I appreciate others, remembering what a joy it is to be praised!



Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous. Praise befits the upright.—Psalm 33:1

Want to know God's will for your heart? Then answer this question: What ignites your heart? Forgotten children? Untouched nations? The inner city? The outer limits?
Heed the fire with in!
Do you have a passion to sing? Then Sing! Are you stirred to manage? The Manage!
Do you ache for the ill? Then treat them! Do you hurt for the lost? The Reach Out to Them!
Myself, I have felt the passion to preach. So I have started classes to do just that.
I have always tried to do God's will for me. He has given me so many gifts to use to help others. For this I thank God each and every day.
I find that if I don't do what God wants me to do. The fire that feeds will consume you!

My God, I will do what you want. Your teachings are in my heart. PSALM 40:8

When Matthew writes that Jesus had compassion on the people, he is not saying that Jesus felt pity for them. NO, the term is far more graphic. Matthew is saying that Jesus felt there hurt in his gut.

He felt the limp of the crippled.
He felt the hurt of the diseased..
He felt the loneliness of the leper.
He felt the embarrassment of the sinful.
And once he felt their hurts, he couldn't help but heal there hurts..

He had compassion for them. MATTHEW 14:14
