And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. Philippians 4:8 NLT
God covers us with everything we need to feel the depth of His holiness. He helps us focus on the power of His love. He brings PEACE in His presence and helps us examine our lives. He allows us to recognize what's holding us back from living our lives in wholeness.
We have been created to find purpose in God’s plan for our days. But sometimes we become fearful of the journey. Confusion welcomes doubt and anxiety tries to dominate every thought. Depressions robs our strength and the closer we get to God; Satan tries to steal our wholeness.
The Bible says, “Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved” (Psalm 55:22) Jesus knows how to fix what is broken and guide us to a place of PEACE. We don’t have to sit in sadness. He recognizes our longing to be free of fear and shows how to LET GO of what we’ve been holding far too long.
As we find courage to surrender, God will help us witness His amazing grace. He will show how to breathe in JOY and help us remember we don't have to live without it. EVERY heart deserves what Christ provides! EVERY HEART!
We must follow Jesus! He will hear our prayers and lead us closer to the Father. God will restore us. He will cover wounds and bandage us in good. He IS deserving of our praise, no matter what! He will show how it feels to be fulfilled.
Now, more than ever we need to live in FAITH. Jesus will provide what we need to be led to a place of calm. While we are cradled in care, He will help us surrender what's been holding us back from the freedom of FEAR. He will fix what is broken. We must pray and BELIEVE. Nothing is too BIG to cast upon the Lord. He WILL love us through our frailties and He WILL fix what is broken.
Dear God, Thank you for Your everlasting love. Help us never be afraid to admit we need you. We will release our worries and welcome JOY to replace our doubt. Help us focus on what's good, so we will embrace a grateful heart and recognize what comes from surrender. Thank you, Lord! Thank you! YOU bring hope for our days. Thank you for fixing what is broken. Help us remember why greatness awaits those who step in FAITH and choose to follow Jesus! Thank you, Lord. Thank you for the power of Your love. It heals us in so many ways! Amen
