I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15: 13 NLT
God wants us to abide in the place where He dwells; to know Jesus and be “held in the beauty of the way He transforms us”. He wants us to experience mercy, grace and welcome the fruit of the HOLY SPIRIT.
We have a Father who loves us more than can we imagine; a God who is more powerful than we can comprehend, and a Provider who blesses us as we TRUST in Him.
JOY will be found on earth and in heaven and we don’t have to live without PEACE or believe we’ll never experience how it blesses our lives. If we pray with desire to have a beautiful connection with Christ, FAITH will help us find it.
It will open the eyes of our heart so we will focus on the Savior and remember where HOPE is found. He will cradle us in care as we witness His greatness and bravely surrender doubt.
If we relinquish our need to have control and let God guide us, He will show us amazing things as we patiently wait on Him to answer prayers. In the time we’re required to be patient, God will teach us valuable lessons along the way.
He knows what we need to welcome STRENGTH. God will bless us when we look for the GOOD and BELIEVE we will find it. He will answer prayers; perhaps in ordinary ways to “simply” bless the heart of our faithfulness.
We must never underestimate God’s authority to do what needs to be done to nourish our souls. HE LOVES US! When we welcome gratitude and live in the truth of knowing we are valued and loved, we will always be able to recognize the many ways God blesses us.
Dear God, thank you for Your MANY blessings. You bring JOY to our hearts as we welcome PEACE and witness Your timely rewards. Help us find JOY in the most ordinary ways YOU choose to bless us and draw us closer to YOU. YOU are deserving of praise EVERY day of our lives. Forgive us when we neglect to welcome gratitude. Thank you for the goodness of YOUR LOVE. We know everything GOOD comes from Your faithfulness. Thank you, Lord! Amen
