Thank you for always providing for me! You love me so much and see me for who I really am. Thank you for giving me this gift that I have and trusting me with it. I know that my life is not my own and that I owe everything I am to you.
When anxiety starts to take over remind me that you are God alone. Remind me that you have it all figured out and that worrying isn’t going to make any situation better. I need to be reminded of how deep your love for me is. At times I don’t realize how much you love me and how much I truly mean to you. When I forget those things I tend to let worry and anxiety take over. I tend to let people make me upset and act unlike christ. Help me to remain christ like no matter the situation or circumstance. Help me to love others the way you want them to be loved. Help me to love myself the way that I should be loved.
Joy– A feeling of great pleasure
You have shown me the paths that led to life and your presence will fill me with JOY
You have changed my sadness into a joyful dance, you have taken away my sorrow and surrounded me with JOY.
1 Thessalonians 5:16
Be JOYful always
Thank you for the unshakable joy that you give me each and every morning.
I am so grateful for your JOY! I am so grateful that you find JOY in me.
As I began this week I want to experience all of the JOY that you have made available to me.
Happiness isn’t enough. I need your JOY!
Thank you for a sound mind, healthy body and blessed family. I am so grateful for all of my blessings. I am grateful for my family whom you watch over everyday. I am grateful for my ability to think for myself and make my own decisions. Today I want to thank you for fighting all of my battles. Thank you for making me a winner! Thank you for being a giver and mutilpier. Thank you for going before me and making my paths straight. Thank you for choosing me to be your daughter.
Are you afriad today? Are you stressed? Worn out? Take a deep breath and know that God is with and for you! Know that you are NOT alone. God has NOT forgotten nor forsaking you. Our country is out of control, people are dying left and right, cost of living is escalating. There is a lot to be concerned with right now yet, your mind should be focused on our heavenly father. Your mind should be on his goodness and mercy, if you keep your mind on him he will KEEP you in perfect PEACE. The kind of peace that passes all understanding. The bible says that Jesus came so that we may have LIFE and have it MORE ABUNDANTLY. ( John 10:10) That measn that YOU can have peace, joy, hope, love and everything else in abundance. Today I pray that God showers his unconditional love upon you and that his favor follows you all the days of your life. I pray that you recieve his peace and abundance, give grace as it has been given to you and do your best to love as christ loves.
God has a plan for you and your life. No matter how things may look or feel right now God is FOR YOU and never against you. Remember that God is a giver and a multiplier. He is not a taker. God wants each of us to have joy,peace and love in our lives. Do you want the same? You can have all that he has planned for you. Do you want it? Do you believe that he loves you? Truly loves you with all of his heart? Life is full of trials they make us stronger. Life can be full of joy. Life can be full of peace. Life can be full of love. It might not be full of those things at this very moment but be patient because God is faithful. His promises are true and they will come to pass in your life. You have to believe in his word, have faith that he hears those cries, see’s the bills and knows about all of your pain. God cares about everything that concerns you. He cares about what you will eat tonight, the promotion that you deserve, that family member that needs to be saved, your kids, your health, your marriage. He cares about ALL of that. You might be reading this thinking about how much of a mess your life is in always remember that God loves you! There is nothing you can do to stop God from loving you. He is faithful and has a plan for your life. Hold on, be patient and trust that he cares for you.
Give me wisdom to understand what to do when I don’t know what to do. So many times lately I have had to make decisions and don’t ask you for your help. I need you! I realize that more and more each day. I realize that I have to give grace as it has been given to me. You love me so much and shower me with all of your blessings and I don’t even deserve it. How amazing is that!? Your love is so amazing to me. I’m petty, self-centered and a host of others things yet you chose me! Yet you love me! Not some earthly love but a real, unconditional everlasting love. I realize that you want all of your children to love as you do. Show me father. Show me how to love without expecting it back. Show me how to love and be as forgiving as you are. Father I want to please you and not grieve you. Show me how to be a better child. Show me the right paths to take. I know that you are always with me and that you go before me to make the narrow paths straight. I’m grateful for your love, mercy and grace. Thank you for your protection.
I came across this selection on my Bible app reading plan. For a very long time I didn’t know it was possible to be full of Joy. I didn’t know Joy could chase you down even when you are experiencing difficult time. I hope this blesses you on this wonderful Monday!
God is always with us. He should always be our joy and peace.
