Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so let us all be thankful. "So we, Your people and sheep of Your pasture, Will give You thanks forever; We will show forth Your praise to all generations."' ~ PSALMS 79:13 NKJV

Go forth today, by the help of GOD’s Spirit, vowing and declaring that in life—-come poverty, come wealth, in death—come pain or come what may, you are and ever must be the LORD’s. For this is written on your heart, ‘We love Him because He first loved us.’” ~ Charles H. Spurgeon "'We love Him because He first loved us."' ~ 1 JOHN 4:19 NKJV

In almost everything that touches our everyday life on earth, GOD is pleased when we’re pleased. He wills that we be as free as birds to soar and sing our maker’s praise without anxiety.” ~ ~ A.W. Tozer ~ "'make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through JESUS CHRIST, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen. ~ HEBREWS 13:21 NKJV

Seize every second of your life and savor it. Value your present moments. Using them up in any self-defeating ways means you’ve lost them forever. ~ Wayne Dyer ~ "'For bodily exercise profits a little, but Godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come."' ~ 1 TIMOTHY 4:8 NKJV

Our deepest joy and fulfillment comes from experiences and relationships, not from things. Spend less time with things or seeking things, and more time doing things with people you care about. "'Fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself."' ~ PHILIPPIANS 2:2-3 NKJV

Each person is a unique expression of GOD’s loving design. "'Therefore, if anyone is in CHRIST, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new."' ~ 2 CORINTHIANS 5:17 NKJV

"'Be still, and know that I am GOD; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!"' ~ PSALM 46:10 ~ "Be still and know that I am GOD" does not mean you sit in meditation all day, although physically still periods are important. What it means is that even in the midst of a busy life, there is an undercurrent, a foundation of stillness that is always present. When you operate from that stillness, you are fully allowing GOD to express through you.

We may not know what the future holds, but we can trust the One who holds the future. "'There are many plans in a man’s heart, Nevertheless the LORDS’s counsel—that will stand."' ~ PROVERBS 19:21 NKJV

JESUS is not one of many ways to approach GOD. nor is He the best of several ways; He is the only way. ~ A.W. Tozer ~ "' JESUS said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."' ~ JOHN 14:6 NKJV

Surround me with your light, JESUS, and penetrate the very depths of my being with that light. Let there remain no areas of darkness in me, my family members, and friends, but transform our whole being with the healing light of your love. Open me completely to receive your love, JESUS. Thank you for being our family healer, my personal healer and my Savior. In JESUS name, Amen!
