TODAY'S VERSE How amazing are the deeds of the LORD! All who delight in him should ponder them. Everything he does reveals his glory and majesty. Psalms 111:2-3 (NLT)

TODAY'S THOUGHT What do your ponder? There are so many things that vie for our attention. So much of our time is spent thinking about our future or our past that we fail to consider God's greatness in the moment. And when we fail to see God's glory and majesty in the moment it taints the way we consider the future or the past. So the circle continues. So many our thoughts are considered as if God was not in the picture. The Psalmist reminds us that the Lord's deeds are amazing and we should spend time pondering them. He assures us that when we do, we will see God's glory and majesty. Seeing that will effect everything else we think about. Today ponder all that the glorious deed that God is doing.

TODAY'S PRAYER Dear Father, help me to see all that You are doing around me. Help me to stop and ponder all Your amazing deeds. Truly they reveal Your glory and majesty. AMEN

TODAY'S VERSE I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me. Psalms 16:8 (NLT)

TODAY'S THOUGHT The secret in this verse is David's awareness. God being near to us is not novel. He is omnipresent. David writes later in the Psalms that there is nowhere that we can go to get away from His presence. No, the novelty here is David's heartfelt awareness. He knew both in his mind and in his heart that God was with him. God was as close to him as his own breath. And with that presence was a keen awareness of God's unconditional love. It was David's driving force. Jehovah was the God of love. He was the God who was there. And He is the same for you. Today, do not be shaken. Instead rejoice in the fact that God is with you. He is right next to you.

TODAY'S PRAYER Dear Father, how I rejoice that You are with me. You have promised to never leave me or forsake me. I rejoice in Your closeness and humbly thank You for Your presence.Because of Jesus. AMEN

TODAY'S VERSE Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. I Peter 5:7 (NIV)

TODAY'S THOUGHT Some translations say, "Give all your worries to God." I like this version where it uses the word, "Cast". If you picked up something that was burning hot, you do not hand it off! You cast it aside, you get rid of it. There is a sense of urgency. THis is what God wants us to do with all our cares. All those things that bother us. We need to "cast it off!" Instead we worry. Worry is hanging on to them. It's trying th same thing and expecting a different result.It is taking on something we are not capable of handling. Instead God says, "Here I AM! Cast your troubles to me. I can handle it. I love you and will take care of you." So today, cast all your cares on Jesus because He cares for you.

TODAY'S PRAYER Dear Jesus, thank You for Your invitation to cast all my cares, troubles, concerns and worries on You. Thank You for caring for me. AMEN

TODAY'S VERSE For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 NIV

TODAY'S THOUGHT God wants to parent us. What father or mother, that purposely set out to procreate, would not desire good things for their children? Imagine the plans they would have for this child that they, out of love, deliberately conceived. With anticipation, the parents would share with each other the great hopes they had for there soon-to-be child. What consideration, what desires to bless the child, to give him or her everything they would ever need. If we as parents can show that much love, how much more than would a all loving, all knowing, all powerful God desire for those He specifically created? Today, rejoice in the fact that God knows the plans He has for you! He has plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

TODAY'S PRAYER Dear Father, thank You that I was part of Your plan from the beginning of time. You have always desired to bless me, to prosper me and to give me a hope and a future. How I thank You for this and today I will go forward in faith believing this is Your deepest desire for me. AMEN

I just popped over to say "thanks" for the warm welcome you've given me on the Violet Virtuoso team, and I read your verse, thought, and prayer for the day. What a privilege we have! When we're scheduling our day to stay healthy, we're also scheduling it to do God's work by getting or staying at the ready to do our duties and beyond.
