Each One of Your Concerns

Psalm 62:8
Trust God, my friends and always tell him each one of your concerns. God is our place of safety.

Whatever is on your mind, tell God about it.

No matter where you are in life, you’ll always have someone there to listen to each one of your concerns and a place of safety in a world that isn’t always safe.

Have a good day.

Be Thankful

‘For what?’ you might be saying right now.

Well, here’s some context:

Psalms 50
14 I am God Most High! The only sacrifice I want is for you to be thankful and to keep your word.

23 The sacrifice that honors me is a thankful heart. Obey me, and I, your God, will show my power to save.

Yep, God wants us to be thankful. You’ll notice that it doesn’t specify when or where to be thankful. It doesn’t qualify the command with anything. It says to be thankful.

So let’s be thankful! Thankful for the countless blessings that are in our lives, when times seem good and also when times seem like they’re not so good.

I’d like to do a better job of being thankful when I’m at both ends of the spectrum – when things are great and when they’re not so great.

Not surface-level thankful, either. Deep-down, heartfelt thankful. That’s the kind of thankful I want to be.

I have so much…seems like being truly thankful for it would be the least I could do 🙂

Have a great day everyone.

No Fears

For anyone out there who might be dealing with something, whether internally or externally that has you experiencing fear right now…

Psalm 27
1You, LORD, are the light that keeps me safe.
I am not afraid of anyone.
You protect me, and I have no fears.

Leave your fears behind and go with confidence, knowing you are loved and protected.

Have a great day.

Forgiven

Right now, people everywhere are carrying something with them that needs to be left behind. Maybe you’re one of those people.

Something you’ve done in your past, something you blame yourself for…something that has caused you unhappiness, possibly for quite a while, because you haven’t let it go.

Whether it’s guilt, shame, or regret, you are not allowing yourself to achieve your full potential right now because you have not freed yourself from that weight on your shoulders.

If this is you, I want you to know you have company. I can’t even count the number of times I have kept things with me that simply didn’t need to be with me anymore.

Thankful

Maybe it’s the unseasonably warm late winter/early spring we’re having here in the Midwest, maybe it’s something else. Whatever it is, I’ve been feeling pretty thankful for a lot of things lately.
