And your heart shall swell with joy;
Because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you,
The wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you.

God of peace


Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely;
and may your whole spirit, soul, and body

The grass withers, the flower fades,

The grass withers, the flower fades,
But the word of our God stands forever.”
Isaiah 40:8

When I took this picture I was amazed that one flower could be in full bloom and right next to it the other one was already fading away. What a contrast! Yet, in some ways that is what our lives are like. We move into a different season. Things change. Many times not as we would have liked. But God's word stands forever. I can trust that if my circumstances change, he doesn't.

Father, I thank you that you are my rock that doesn't move. I can turn to you and you will answer me.
Amen

You are my hiding place and my shield;

You are my hiding place and my shield;
I hope in Your word.
Psalm 119:114

Sometimes we all need a place to hide from all the stress of this world. It is easy to hide in our busyness, food, drugs, entertainment, or anything else but the Lord. Turning to the Lord seems so difficult, for we are do-it yourself type people. Yet when I do, I find much needed peace for my soul. I grab a hold of the promises that He has for me and take shelter, hidden away in His love.
May you find protection and peace in the Lord this day...

Father, I thank you that I can run to you
when I am scared, and your arms are open wide to hold me.

Amen

Grace for Grace

And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace.
John 1:16

I love this Scripture, Grace for grace we have received in the Fullness of Jesus.
Knowing that we are under grace and not under the law sets my heart free. All because of Jesus. May the Lord reveal His grace that He has for you today.
May your heart overflow in knowing the fullness of the Lord.
Thank you Lord for your grace.
May we seek you this week
when we need grace or need to give grace.

Amen

And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge

TMV©2008

Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me!
For my soul trusts in You;
And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge,
Until these calamities have passed by.
Psalm 57:1

Thank you for your mercy and lovingkindness.
Help us to keep our eyes on You till the storm passes.
We trust you, Lord!
In Your Name,
Amen
