Verse of the Day
You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16 (NIV)
Abba Heavenly Father, thank You for Your hand of blessing in my life. Thank You for choosing to work through me today. I submit myself and my resources to You. Show me ways to be a blessing to others so that the earth will be filled with the knowledge of Your glory. Lord I thank You for setting me free from competition. I choose to rest in You knowing that I am Your workmanship. Thank You for directing and ordering my steps. I bless and praise You today .
Abba Father, thank You for Your grace and forgiveness. Lord, unforgiveness is like a cancer to my soul. It is eating me alive and I seem powerless to forgive. Help me. Forgive me for my unforgiveness and give me the strength and the compassion to follow You and Your forgiveness on the Cross. Thank you for not giving up on me. I pray that I might express the same kind of forgiveness to others. Help me forgive today, I pray. Thank you Jesus for loving us enough to absorb my sin and giving me your goodness. Thank you for wanting to be with me for eternity.
Thank you for giving me hope for the difficulties I face today. Thank you for empowering me to look beyond myself, and my selfish desires so that I can find joy in serving others. Thank you, Lord, for choosing me to be in your family forever, which gives me hope to live fully today. Thank you that you’re coming back one day to fully restore this world that needs your healing touch. Thank you for the new community of imperfect people in your Church that exists to join your daily work. Thank you that we are privileged to bring light in the darkness, bread to the hungry, and comfort to the afflicted. I’m trying to keep my head above water, Lord. Thank You for being an island in the stream, where I can climb out of the water, rest from the struggle, and renew myself for the swim ahead. In the Sweet and mighty name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen
