How is that for starters? I don’t get invited to many parties these days. At the core, digital is a great thing. What we do with it, how we use it…that is another matter.” —Daniel Milnor (via ryanmuirhead)
Commit your actions to the L ord , and your plans will succeed. (Proverbs 16:3 NLT)
In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly. (Romans 12:6-8 NLT)
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. (Philippians 4:6 NLT)
Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. (2 Corinthians 12:9 NLT)
And this righteousness will bring peace.
Yes, it will bring quietness and confidence forever. My people will live in safety, quietly at home.
They will be at rest. Even if the forest should be destroyed
and the city torn down, the LORD will greatly bless his people.
Wherever they plant seed, bountiful crops will spring up.
Their cattle and donkeys will graze freely. (Isaiah 32:17-20 NLT)
Today, with the help of a true friend, I came to the realization that someone who I thought was one of my closest friends is far from that. This friend has been manipulative and deceptive. I feel betrayed, angry and hurt. Its going to take a while for me to get over this. I’ve shed a lot of tears and I’m sure there will be more. Praying for strength to let go of what I can not control.
Last night I was so angry with someone. This morning I woke up to the following verse of the day;
Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you. (Ephesians 4:31, 32 NLT)
I am constantly amazed by God’s ability to speak directly to each one of us.
For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. (Romans 3:23, 24 NLT)
