Hope for Today

Romans 15 13

Verse of the Day:  Romans 15:13

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

 

Without hope we feel helpless, alone and powerless.  But our God is the source of all hope.   Hope for healing, hope for peace, hope for joy and hope for the future.  All hope comes from knowing, believing and trusting God. By His grace and by the power of the Holy Spirit, God has given us the precious gift of hope. If you feel hopeless, seek a relationship with the author of all hope, God Almighty.

True Beauty

Proverbs 31 30.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 31:30

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

 

Outer beauty is only skin deep and won’t last forever. The world wants you to think that our outer beauty is the most important thing and we must chase after it.  But a truly beautiful woman puts God first, she puts her relationship with God above all else. She knows that the way God sees her is more important than how the world sees her.

Earnestly Seek God

Psalm 63 1.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 63:1

You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.

 

If you really want to have a closer relationship with God seek him by faith with a sincere heart and mind.  You must turn from evil, confess your sins and be obedient to his Word. Make spending time with him a priority over everything else. Humble yourself before him and worship him with all of your heart and you will surely find him.

A Heart at Peace

Proverbs 14 30

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 14:30

A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.

 

When you have a real relationship with God, He changes your heart.  You start to feel freed from anger, worry and envy.  You have peace in your heart and a hope that makes you joyful.  But a heart that envies the happiness, prosperity and success of others exhausts the body and soul.  Don’t let envy steal your peace and joy, don’t let it affect your spirit or your health. Trust in the Lord, what is meant for you won’t pass you by.

Morning Rituals

Psalm 143 8

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 143:8

Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you.  Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life.

 

As soon as I open my eyes and wake up each morning there are a two things that cross my mind:  God and coffee.  I’ve made it a habit to start my day with prayer, God’s Word and coffee and have come to depend on them to get me through the day. If you want a closer relationship with God get into the habit of praying and reading the Bible daily. All you need is a little bit of coffee and a whole lot of Jesus.
