Verse of the Day: Psalm 84:12
Lord Almighty, blessed is the one who trusts in you.
As wives, mothers and grandmothers we do our best to take care of our families to the best of our abilities and we do as much as is humanly possible. There are some things that are out of our control and for us, they are impossible. Those are the things we need to give to God. Through prayer, supplication and faith put your trust in the Lord Almighty who deals in making the impossible, possible. Do the possible and trust God for the impossible.
Verse of the Day: Proverbs 31:31
Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
Mothers deserve to be appreciated and honored for all they do for their families. Much of what they do is unseen and undervalued. They make sacrifices without hesitation all in the name of love. Give thanks to God for your mother and ask Him to bless her in a special way.
Verse of the Day: Proverbs 14:1
The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.
A wise woman builds her house established on God’s Word and with God as the foundation. She cares for her family, she encourages them and she leads by example by being an honorable and virtuous woman of God.
Verse of the Day: Proverbs 3:3
Do not let kindness and truth leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.
Love is kind and your kindness shows compassion to the people you love. Sometimes we slip into a comfortable state where we take each other for granted, not intentionally, but it happens and we no longer go out of our way to be kind. The Bible tells us over and over that we should be kind to one another. How much more should we intentionally be kind to our loved ones? Let’s choose to go out of our way to show kindness to the people we love.
Verse of the Day: 1 Corinthians 13:4
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
No one is perfect and everyone has faults and quirks, but when we show genuine love and patience we overlook the things that frustrate and possibly even annoy us. When we are patient and kind we try our best to focus on the wonderful qualities of the people we love. Just like our heavenly Father is patient with us we should also be patient with those we love.
Verse of the Day: Luke 12:15
Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”
Christmas is exactly one month away and although it’s nice to be able to give our loved ones gifts it’s also a good time to remind ourselves that life is not about possessions. People trying to get the newest car, the biggest house or the next big thing are never satisfied. The only thing that can ever satisfy your soul is Jesus! Life is not about the material possessions you have it’s about having a relationship with the Lord.
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 be lonely and even a sad time. I sometimes feel it too. I miss loved ones that have passed 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.
