Praying God’s Word Day-by-Day – Beth Moore
You were never meant to go through life by the skin of your teeth but to flourish in the love and acceptance of Almighty God.
I am Your child! I have the full right of a son! And it is my right to be free in You!
Jesus Calling – Sarah Young
You will get through this day one way or the other. One way is to moan and groan, stumbling along with shuffling feet. . . . You can choose to walk with Me along the path of Peace, leaning on Me as much as you need. There will still be difficulties along the way, but you can face them confidently in My strength. Thank Me for each problem you encounter, and watch to see how I transform trials into blessings.
Streams in the Desert – L. B. Cowman
God may not give us an easy journey to the Promised Land, but He will give us a safe one. – Horatius Bonar
Are you weary, tender heart?
Be glad of pain:
In sorrow, sweetest virtues grow,
As flowers in rain.
God watches, and you will have sun,
When clouds their perfect work have done.
– Lucy Larcom
Broken Places – Proverbs 31 Daily Email Devotional
“We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure.” 2 Corinthians 4:7a (NLT)
Paul had discovered something valuable. There was a light inside that fractured jar healing the hurting places on the interior, then shining through the broken places so that the world could see.
That treasure, nestled in the center of the clay, was Jesus.
You are loved.
You are made for more than this.
God can and will heal the broken parts of your heart.
God sees you.
He loves you.
He’s reaching to make you whole again.
One Day at a Time – Day 47 – Forgive Everyone Involved
Forgiveness can seem utterly impossible. The hurt and rejection cut too deep. . . .
The pain is aggravated when it’s not only one person who has wounded or abandoned you, but also others who have chosen to “take sides.”
God commands us to forgive. Because He commands us, then it is possible for us to forgive, no matter what the circumstances. He doesn’t promise that it will be easy, but He promises that it can be done.
