I love Jeremiah 29:11, sometimes that verse is what keeps me going in the time of trial.

Psalm 19 "The Heavens declare the glory of God." The whole psalm talks about praising God and seeing Him in his creation. Hard to feel sorry for yourself when you know the one that created the whole universe has you in the palm of his hand. As scripture declares, Christ liveth in me and I in Him. How can it not be well with my soul?

It is well with my soul.

What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.

Its hard to pick just one - isn't it?

My favorite, because its the one I always turn to is Proverbs 3:5-6; just putting my trust in Him - knowing I may not fully understand, but His plan is greater than mine, in everything I do, I should do it for Him and He will direct my paths -

Another that truly lifts my spirits on a down day - Philippians 1:6...Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

I'm not perfect now - nor will I be during my time on this earth, but when I get to heaven - I will be - He uses me and my life on this earth to make a difference for others - I wasn't saved for myself, but for someone else.

For years, I struggled, making wrong choices - one day I heard a person say all the bad choices we make won't cause God not to love us anymore, but when we make those choices - someone is watching and our witness for Christ is weakened, if not destroyed.

I praise Him for the birds chirping this morning.

The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make a difference that you have lived at all.

Proverbs 3:5,6

John 3:16 means so much to me.

Here in times of late and seeing the way people are acting and the injustice of our times I am reading Psalm 37:1-10 a lot. It give me comfort.

Don't be upset be upset because of evil people.
Don't be jealous of those who do wrong,
because like the grass, they will soon dry up.
Like green plants, they will soon die away.

Trust the Lord and do good.
Live in the land and feed on truth.
Enjoy serving the Lord,
and he will give you what you want.
Depend on the Lord;
trust him, and he will take care of you.
Then your goodness will shine like the sun,
and your fairness like the noonday sun.

Wait and trust the Lord.
Don't be upset when others get rich
or when someone else's plans succeed.
Don't get angry.
Don't be upset; it only leads to trouble.
Evil people will be sent away,
but those who trust the Lord will inherit the land.
In a little while the wicked will be no more.
You may look for them but they will be gone.

Proverbs 3:5,6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all you ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.




I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.

Take pride in how far you have come, have faith in how far you can go.
