Thank you father for granting me a moment of clarity. Tough I do not deserve anything I have, you have blessed me 100 times more than i truly deserve. I am humble and ashamed. I lie, cheat, steal, break your commandments on an everyday basis, YET YOU ARE STILL THERE. How great is your love that you would tolerate my actions!!! My moment of clarity is that i now fully understand what you expect from me. I have taken from you , without giving back. I have tremendous gifts and abilities, yet i do not use it to glorigy your name.
2011 is the year I glorify your name. This is going to be an amazing journey. Through God anything is possible. What surprises will be awaiting me on this journey. I ask that you pray for me. Pray that i may do my share in bring people to Jesus
In his name I live,
7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
The Lord our Savior offers peace!!!! Through Jesus all is attainable. Reading the bible, we can see that through Jesus, anything is possible. The same thought process can be used in terms or peace and understanding in terms of our emotions.
When we have problems we rationalize a solution. We think of ways to “get out of the situaion”. By offereing up our concerns to Jesus, we leave it up to him. How great is it to know that we can offer up our concerns to our Savior, and he will put them to ease. How many nights have you spent tossing and turning because of a problem? Money, Relationships, Children, Work, School, etc. etc. We have all had those kinds of nights. In fact, I had one just last week. I can vividly remember dropping on my knees and yelling our the lords name. I offered up the problem to him and told him, I leave it all up to you. TRUST IN THE DECISIONS THE LORD MAKES!!! We trust him in good time, we must learn to trust him in bad times!!!
Now mind you, that the solution Jesus has, may not be what you want. It may be the total opposite. We must trust that the decisions the Lord has made is with our best interest in hand. Like the verse says; …the peace of God…transcends all understanding…
Glory to the one who deserves all praises…JESUS!!!

Philippians 4:6-7 (New International Version, ©2010)
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
“When words are many, transgression is not lacking, but whoever restrains his lips is prudent.”
Proverbs 10:19 ESV
Lord, I pray that tonite will be the last time I speak without thinking. I said things that I absolutely do not feel. My earthly emotions got the better of me tonite. I am better than that…I thank you for all that is given to me.
In Jesus name,
With all the different bible versions out there, a meaning of a verse can sometimes be lost. I found this website where you can type in a bible verse and it will list All the bible translations for the specific verse. Today I choose Philippians 4:6.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Like they say; sometimes just talking to someone makes all the difference. The fact that you are talking to the most high just makes it better. No problem is too small. Jesus is concerned about all aspects of our life. If it concerns us, it concerns him.
Tomorrow we dwell on what happens when you offer your concerns to Jesus.
