blessings all year
On this last day of the year, some people get together with their family and friends for a New Year's Eve celebration. The end of the year is a good time to think about all the wonderful blessings that you have from God. Can you think of special ways God blessed you and took care of you this year? As you celebrate the end of the year; remember to say thank you to God for his many blessings.
the power to work miracles
The peace that God gives is so great that we cannot understand it. Philippians 4:7
When I'm resting in your care, Lord, your peace is everywhere.
We thank God because we have heard about the ...love you have for all of God's people. Colossians 1:4
Lord, fill me with your love today so I will please you as I play.
on the miracle of forgiveness
Forgiveness involves faith in a love that's greater than hatred, and a willingness to see the light in someone's soul even when their personality harbors darkness. Forgiveness doesn't mean that someone didn't act horribly; it simply means that we choose not to focus on their guilt. In focusing on it, we make it real to us, and in making it real to us, we make it real for us. The only way to deliver ourselves from vulnerability to other people's behavior is by identifying with the part of them that lies beyond their bodies. We can look beyond others' behavior to the innocence in their souls. In doing so, we not only free them from the weight of our condemnation, but we free ourselves as well.
That is the miracle of forgiveness.
Even the darkness is not dark to you. The night is as light as the day. Psalm 139:12
Dear Lord, in heaven you shine your light. No matter if it is day or night.
i dedicate my talents to god
Today, I take myself, my work, and the God within me seriously - dedicate myself daily, hourly, even moment by moment to love's purposes - and the ego won't have a chance. It knows a holy mind when it sees one.
I dedicate to You my talents and abilities.
May they be used in a way that serves Your purposes.
I surrender to You my business and finances.
May my work be lifted to its highest possibility,
As a blessing on all the world.
i surrender to god my work in the world
As God so clothes the lilies in the field, He will surely clothe me. He asks that I extend to others the blessing and protection He has poured upon me, that His love might flow forth in an endless stream of miracles.
I surrender to You who I am, what I have, and what I do.
May my life and talents be used in whatever ways serves You best.
I surrender to You my failures and any pain still in my heart.
I surrender to You my successes and the hopes that they contain.
May the light of Your love shine deep within my heart
And extend through me to bless the world.
win or lose
If God is with us, then no one can defeat us. Romans 8:31
Dear God, I want to share this news: Your love is something I'll never lose.
obey with a smile
Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord. Colossians 3:20
I want to please you night and day. Help me to try my best to obey.
