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.

10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 10: Happy Thanksgiving!

1 Chronicles 29 13

Verse of the Day:  1 Chronicles 29:13

Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name.

I want to wish you all a happy and blessed Thanksgiving! Over the past few days I’ve shared with you just a few of the things I’m thankful for but there are so many that I would never be able to express them all. I’m also thankful for the readers of The Consecrated Woman. It’s a blessing to be able to share God’s Word with you. Thank you for your continued support. I pray that you are encouraged and inspired daily. Please keep me and my family in your prayers. As we give thanks to our Lord today let’s remember that God is good all the time and we should be thankful every day of the year. May God bless you and your loved ones today and always. Happy Thanksgiving!

God Is Good All the Time

1 Chronicles 16 34

Verse of the Day:  1 Chronicles 16:34

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.

The Bible doesn’t say, “Give thanks to the Lord when you feel good”.  It says, “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good”.  Giving thanks shouldn’t be based on how you feel, it should be based on who God is, and He is good all the time. If you’re reading this it means you woke up this morning, thank God for waking you up. Thank God for all He’s done for you both big and small. Thank God for what He’s done for you both seen and unseen. Thank God for the things that didn’t happen, the things you didn’t even know you need protection from. Praise God because there is always something to be thankful for.

Too Many Blessing to Count

Psalm 40 5

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 40:5

Many, Lord my God, are the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us. None can compare with you; were I to speak and tell of your deeds, they would be too many to declare.

 

God is good all the time and He has wonderful blessings planned for you, including the gift of salvation. There is no way we could even begin to count all of God’s blessings. He is worthy to be praised for His goodness and mercy.

Psalm 106 1.jpg

 

Verse of the Day: Psalm 106:1

Praise the Lord. Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.

 

God is good all the time and all the time God is good.  I woke up this morning, but not everyone did, so I am grateful for another day of life.  No matter what is going on in my life there is always something to be thankful for.  I’m thankful for God’s love and mercy.  I’m thankful He never gave up on me even when I didn’t deserve another chance.  Life is a precious gift from God and I’m going to be the best me I can be and live my life for Jesus.
