10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 2: Thankful for Wonderful Memories

Philippians 1:3

Verse of the Day:  Philippians 1:3     

I thank my God every time I remember you. 

Paul wrote this in a letter after he left Philippi where he had gone through some very difficult times, yet he chose not to focus on the things that had caused him pain. The holidays can be a difficult time for people who have lost loved ones but as Christians we have the hope that we will see them again someday. We should try to be like the Apostle Paul and stay focused on the positive things in our lives and appreciate the great memories we have. Thank God for giving you the strength to get through difficult times and for the great memories of the wonderful people God placed in your life. Don’t forget to pray for the people who have helped you along life’s journey while you celebrate each day.

Perfect Peace

Isaiah 26 3 2

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 26:3

You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.

No matter what you go through, if you stay focused on the Lord and trust in Him, He will give you peace to get through anything. God’s peace is real and true, it’s an inner peace that only He can give. It’s peace for this world and it’s a perfect peace that will continue even when we get to heaven. Keep your mind fixed on the love God has for you. Stay rooted and grounded in God’s promises and in His power. Give up your need to control every situation and just let God have His way. Let Him give you the peace your heart longs for.
