Verse of the Day: Lamentations 2:19
Arise, cry out in the night, as the watches of the night begin; pour out your heart like water in the presence of the Lord.
God wants you to come to Him with the good and the bad. It’s easy to bring to the good through praise and thankfulness but we also need to bring our troubles to Him. He already knows what you’re going through but He wants you to bring it all to Him. It doesn’t matter if it’s anger, frustration, confusion, pain, suffering, lay it all at His feet. Don’t hold back, pour your heart out to God and He will give you peace.
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: Psalm 27:14
Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
We are not always good at waiting, it’s just our nature. We get impatient, frustrated, and start to doubt God’s will in our lives. But we need to be confident in God’s goodness. We need to wait on the Lord’s timing, hope in his mercy, and believe in his promises!
