May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in HOPE. Romans 15:13
Christ wants us to be full. He fills us with everything we need to be satisfied by the power of His love. But, sometimes we forget how much we're blessed. We allow the ups and downs in life to diminish God’s will to provide.
There is reason to trust the One who creates an attitude of gratitude in our hearts. He carries us through days of doubt and moves us from the selfish side of want. He finds the way to provide EVERYTHING we need. He fills us with strength for today and places peace where prayers will welcome PRAISE.
The Bible says, “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.” No matter what we’re going through, Christ is with us. His presence in our lives is reason to be grateful. He leads us to the Father and reminds us why we must trust in Him. He opens our hearts to receive the bounty of His everlasting love.
God gives HOPE for the future. He grows us in the goodness of grace. He loves us! He arms us with everything we need to remain faithful. And, when we put our HOPE in Him, He helps us understand why peace will come, when the heart has learned to be grateful.
God, Thank you for Your presence in our lives. Open our hearts, so we will humbly embrace an attitude of gratitude for You. We will begin this day in praise and fill ourselves full of EVERYTHING we need to remember who's in charge of ALL things. Amen
