day 2 - 6 QUOTEWhat would this world be like if God wasn’t in it? Well, think on this: If God were not in the world, love would not be in the world.

Yes, there is evil and greed, murder and mayhem, but there is also love. God is here. And He is in control. I know, especially when bad things happen, we sometimes wonder how God can be in control. But it is at those times we must turn away from the bad, and focus on the good—God and His love for us.

I believe we can go boldly into each day without fear, knowing our God goes into the day with us to fight against all that will come against us, and… He will give us victory.

Believe it!

… For the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.” Deuteronomy 20:3-4

What’s In Your Heart?

River walk 3 - quoteI used to wonder how a person could pray without ceasing then I realized prayer is not always about asking for something, and it should actually more often be about praising God and thanking Him. Praise and thanksgiving are prayer, and that’s how we can pray without ceasing! God is not complicated. Keep it simple; focus on the good stuff, constantly thanking and praising Him for His love and faithfulness. He not only hears the prayers that come out of our mouths; He hears our hearts.

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1st Thessalonians 5:16-18

Far and Beyond

bird house - quoteIf we think back to the most excited and happy we’ve ever been, the event or place we recall will most likely have something to do with love. But, just for a moment, imagine a love far and beyond any love you’ve ever known; imagine happiness more joyous than any you’ve ever experienced. … You know what? Read the rest of this entry »

A Thousand Times, Then Wow!

It seems we often take so much God has done for granted. The world around us is full of wondrous things, and yet we walk through it each day, oblivious to most of them. I dare say if we were to compile a list of wonderful things God has created or done, we would not be able to complete it in our lifetime. Read the rest of this entry »
