Take Care of Your Soul

3 John 1 2

 

Verse of the Day:  3 John 1:2

Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.

 

Make sure you take care of your body, but don’t forget to also take care of your soul, good health starts from the inside.  Do things that make you smile and bring you joy.  Do volunteer work, it not only helps others, it makes you feel happy too.  Forgive, let go of anger and hurt so you can move forward. And remember, the most important thing you can do for your soul is to spend alone time with God.

May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

Memorial Day

John 15 13

 

Verse of the Day:  John 15:13

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

 

As we celebrate and enjoy our freedom this Memorial Day let’s take a moment to reflect on the true meaning of the holiday as we remember those who gave their lives in active military service.  Let’s honor these heroes by praying for their families, praying for one another and praying for our country.

Gethsemane

Matthew 26 36-46.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 26:36-46

Gethsemane

36 Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to them, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.” 37 He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee along with him, and he began to be sorrowful and troubled. 38 Then he said to them, “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me.” 39 Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.” 40 Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. “Couldn’t you men keep watch with me for one hour?” he asked Peter. 41 “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” 42 He went away a second time and prayed, “My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done.” 43 When he came back, he again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy. 44 So he left them and went away once more and prayed the third time, saying the same thing. 45 Then he returned to the disciples and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? Look, the hour has come, and the Son of Man is delivered into the hands of sinners. 46 Rise! Let us go! Here comes my betrayer!”

I’m Not Lucky, I’m Blessed

Numbers 6 24-26.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Numbers 6:24-26

The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.

 

The Lord pours his blessings and grace on his people.  He alone is the reason for my blessings and peace. Don’t waste your time on lucky charms, four leaf clovers or any other superstitions. Instead, spend time in prayer with the living God who hears your prayers. Thank God for all your blessing for every good and perfect gift comes from above.

Pray Together

Matthew 18 20 (2)

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 18:20

For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.

 

What a blessing it is to be able to pray for and with your sisters in Christ.  Calling upon a friend and ask them to pray in unity with you to collectively make your request known to the Father helps you to build stronger relationships with each other and with God. Get a prayer group going among your friends and reap the benefits of praying together.

Be an Encourager 

1 Thessalonians 5 11

 

Verse of the Day: 1 Thessalonians 5:11

Therefore, encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.

 

We may not be able to solve everyone’s problems but we sure can be an encouragement to everyone by spreading hope. Share the love of God, pray with each other and for each other. Use your words to build each other up not tear each other down. Be a friend and a blessing to those in need (we are all in need).
