As My Heart Meets His Heart

“For your unfailing love is higher than the heavens. Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds” Psalm 108:4 NLT Those brief whispers, You could have done better, remind me of my shortcomings.

“…and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.” Ephesians 4:24 Thought One of the biggest decisions we face at the beginning of each day is what we will wear. Well, no matter what we choose in the way of clothing, let’s make sure we choose to…

Trade Anxiety for Peace

Trade Anxiety for Peace

God calls us to guard our hearts and minds carefully. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God… And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4: 6 & 7 God…

Comparison is a Thief

“I will bless you with a future filled with hope—a future of success, not of suffering: . Jeremiah 29:11 CEV We must be careful about comparing our lives to others. When we do, we tend to lose sight of what God is doing in our own lives. God is a God of purpose. He knows…

Renewed

“…..be made new in the attitude of your minds…  Ephesians 4:23 Thought We cannot renew ourselves on our own. We can guard ourselves against corrupting influences. We can offer ourselves to God and come to discern his will more fully (Romans 12:1-2). Ultimately, however, God himself must do the renewing, not just when we are…

Who is Like Our God?

Some great reminders to focus on and get a proper perspective. “You who have done great things; O God, who is like You?” Psalm 71:19 There is no God like our God! We don’t need to help Him out for He is all-powerful. We don’t need to give Him solutions for He is all-wise. We…
