Practice Gratitude

The truly prosperous, abundant life that God wants us to have cannot exist apart from gratitude. That is because a thankful heart is a happy heart. When we are thankful, we are better able to appreciate and enjoy life and experience greater fulfillment. We are also more likely to recognize God’s goodness and be conscious of His abiding presence. The inner joy that results strengthens us. And as we grow stronger, we grow closer to God. We get to know Him, love Him, and trust Him more. Giving God thanks and praise becomes a part of our lifestyle. There is...

In All Things Give Thanks

Some of us have an annual day of thankfulness, but this isn't nearly what God had in mind for us. Initially it may seem strange to make time to give thanks in all circumstances - it seems impossible. There must be exceptions for when I can't get a good nights sleep? When I feel sick? What about when my children are sick, or I got fired from my job? But I can thank God in every circumstance because God is in control. He can turn things around. He can bring good out of the worst circumstance. God is still with...

I will Trust in Your Unfailing Love

What is this unfailing love that is spoken of in Psalm 13:5? Unfailing love is a love that is not giving way; not falling short of expectation; and is completely dependable. In his unfailing love, God chases after us with an endless passion. This is such a grand idea. The Lord God Almighty with his perfection and endless energy runs after each one of us, offering us His abundant goodness and faithful love. Sometimes we make the mistake of thinking the opposite-that God could care less about us, He is too busy with other more important things. Or that if...

Your Kingdom Come - Lord's Prayer

Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  Matthew 6:10  Today I re-read the Lord’s prayer in the Message version of the Bible. I learned the Lord’s prayer as a child in the King James version, and I love the poetic flow of the words. But sometimes its good to read another version, so the words and ideas seem new and fresh. In the King James version, the second part of the Lord’s Prayer is: Thy kingdom come, thy will be done. And in the Message version its: Set the world right. Do what’s...

Our Father in Heaven - Lord's Prayer

It is one of our great privileges to come to our Father in prayer. I cannot express how much its meant to me to understand that He wants to hear from me and build a relationship. Throughout the Bible we see all kinds of examples of how people prayed, in faith, in desperation, in pain, in joy. One of the verses that keeps coming back to me over and over is to pray without ceasing, so I have been on a bit of a journey about how to pray. Jesus on Prayer Dig into this subject at all and much...
