June 14, 2017 Verse of The Day and A Prayer for Today

Good Morning!

Let’s celebrate being halfway through the week.

🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾

Are you excited about something this morning? Did you set a new goal? Please let me know in the comment section of this post 👇🏾

I’m excited because I made a perfect score on my most recent course quiz! I’d been aiming for that and FINALLY accomplished that goal. 🙌🏾💪🏽🤓

Let’s celebrate one another, that’s how we build community and forge deeper connections!


Today’s Verse of the Day is also from Matthew, Chapter 5.

This morning, we’re looking at verse 14.

When you think about being a light, what does that mean to you?

To me, I think of letting God’s goodness shine through me.  Be it through my actions, words, or even my inaction (particularly by refusing to respond to those things that attack my peace and attempt to distract me from my purpose.)

I pray that you’ll take a moment to meditate on this passage and prayer for today.  🙏🏾💖

Good Morning and Happy Tuesday!

I’ve been a busy bee! Between classes, studying, working full time and expanding endeavors, there hasn’t been much time for blogging. 

But I’m grateful. There’s always time to read the Word and seek wisdom and guidance from the Lord.  

Let us never become too busy for that essential time.  I’m going to start a new series of posting the verse and a prayer for the day. These always get my day started in the right direction.

April 19, 2017: Bible Verse of The Day and a Prayer for Today

During my study time today I was reading in Colossians and came across this verse in Chapter 3.  One particular thought has been ringing in my heart all day: 

“Remember that you have been forgiven”

I’m sharing it here along with another powerful prayer from my one of my favorite prayer books/websites, Prayers that Availeth Much.

I’m going to do my best to keep up with posting a verse and prayer each day, but please pray my strength.  Wedding planning is kicking into high gear (the countdown is almost at the single digits– and I take my matron of honor duties VERY seriously! 🙂 ).

You all are always in my thoughts and prayers– even when there’s not a post! ❤ ❤ ❤

Colossians 3:12-13  New Living Translation (NLT)

12 Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. 13 Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others.


A Prayer For Today*

 

Father, I am Your child, and I commit to walk in the God kind of love. I endure long, am patient, and kind. I am never envious and never boil over with jealousy. I am not boastful or vainglorious, and I do not display myself haughtily. I am not rude and unmannerly and I do not act unbecomingly.

I do not insist on my own rights or my own way for I am not self-seeking, touchy, fretful or resentful. I take no account of an evil done to me and pay no attention to a suffered wrong. I do not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but I rejoice when right and truth prevail.

I bear up under anything and everything that comes. I am ever ready to believe the best of others. My hopes are fadeless under all circumstances. I endure everything without weakening because my love never fails.

Father, I bless and pray for those who persecute me – who are cruel in their attitude toward me. I bless them and do not curse them. Therefore, my love abounds yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment. I approve things that are excellent. I am sincere and without offense till the day of Christ. I am filled with the fruits of righteousness.

Everywhere I go I commit to plant seeds of love. I thank You, Father, for preparing hearts ahead of time to receive this love. I know that these seeds will produce Your love in the hearts to whom they are given.

Father, I thank You that as I flow in Your love and wisdom, people are being blessed by my life and ministry. Father, You make me to find favor, compassion, and loving kindness with others (name them).

I am rooted deep in love and founded securely on love knowing that You are on my side, and nothing is able to separate me from Your love, Father, which is in Christ Jesus my Lord. Thank You, Father, in Jesus’ precious name. Amen.
