Gifts from Above

James 1 17

Verse of the Day: James 1:17

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

Every good thing we have in our lives and every blessing is a gift from God. The devil tries to remind us of the hard times we’ve gone through, the illnesses, the losses and every trial we’ve ever faced just so we’ll forget all the good things God has done for us. But do not be deceived for God is good all the time and He is the source of every good thing! Instead of counting your troubles, make a list of all the good things in your life and thank your heavenly Father for them.

The Lifter of My Head

Psalm 3 3.jpg

Verse of the Day: Psalm 3:3

But you, O Lord, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.

Thanksgiving Day is over and not everyone has or was able to spend time with family and friends. For some, the holidays can often be lonely and even a sad time. I sometimes feel it too. I miss loved ones that have gone to be with the Lord and those who can’t be near me. But we are not alone, God is with us in every moment of every day. If we focus on the Lord, His goodness and our blessings He will get us through it.

Smile, Jesus Loves You!

Proverbs 15 13

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 15:13

A cheerful heart brings a smile to your face; a sad heart makes it hard to get through the day.

Even though there may be things going on in our lives that make us feel sad, we cannot let them bring us down. There is still good in the world, there are still good people and there is still a reason to smile. If you’re having a bad day, feeling stressed out or feeling blue think about all the good things in your life and all that God has done for you. Sing joyfully to the Lord and let Him refresh your spirit. Count your blessings and not your troubles and remember, Jesus loves you and will never leave you and that’s more than enough reason to smile.

Thankful

Psalm 30 12

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 30:12

To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.

It’s so important to thank God for what He has given us, what He has done for us and for who He is. Although our lives are not perfect and we may have troubles, we have so much to be thankful for. Even with everything going on in the world, we still have so much to be thankful for. No matter what is going on in our lives, there is always something to be thankful for so count your blessings instead of your troubles. Never stop giving thanks to God, even with your last breath, for He truly is worthy of all our praise.

Getting Through Dark Days

Psalm 43 5.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 43:5

Why, my soul, are you downcast?  Why so disturbed within me?  Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

 

Life is not always sunshine and flowers.  There are days when bad things happen, days when sadness creeps in and there are days when we just feel lonely.  In these times, you need to lift your head toward God and give praise to your Savior. God loves you more than you will ever know. Thank Him for all the good in your life.  Put your hope in God and rely on Him to get you through even the darkest of days.

Glory to God

psalm 63 3

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 63:3

Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.

 

Our worst day with God is better than our best day without Him. God’s love, grace and mercy cover us because He is faithful even when we are not.  We have so much to be grateful for and if we begin to glorify God for all He has done for us and count our blessing we would see that His love is better than life itself.

Glory to God
