Change Your Life by Choosing Love Every Day!

Hi everyone!

I hope you enjoy this video by Stormie Omartian.  She talks about choosing love.  That can be so hard to do.  But just give it a try and keep giving love.  I know that sometimes it hurts.  But just keep on trying.  That is what I want to do. 

The Lord has been talking to me about this very thing.  I was so glad to find this video.  Leave a comment if it helps you.

Don't Quit On Life Because God Has Your Back

“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”
— Luke 12:32

Have you had times that you just wanted to quit life?  You would love to stay in bed with the covers over your head?  I have.  Many times. 

Many times I have wanted to just pull the covers over my head and  hide.  In fact, there have been times when I actually have done that.  When my children were young and I was working full time it seemed so hard.  I felt that I had so many responsibilities.  I would come home and for just a few minutes I would lie down and put a pillow over my head until I could think again.

I am semi-retired now and I still want to do that sometimes.  The temptation is great. Being retired is not always peaceful and slow- paced.  It can be hectic and stressful.  It is harder to deal with things now that I am over sixty.

But I know that God has my back.  Even though I get frustrated and confused at times.  I still know that God is for me.  I am part of his flock.  He cares for me.  This knowledge keeps me going.  And going.

Ever have those kind of days?  Leave me a comment and let me know how you handle them.

Memory Verse For Today Proverbs 31:26

                                                       photo from morguefile.com

My memory verse that I am working on today is Proverbs 31:26. 

"She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness."  Proverbs 31:26

I tend to say things without thinking.  Of course, that means I say things that I shouldn't.  I say hurtful things or things that are better kept secret.

Do you have that problem?  Maybe you could memorize this verse with me.  Wisdom and kindness.  That is what I want my life and my words to be about.

"She openeth her mouth with wisdom and in her tongue is the law of kindness."  Proverbs 31:26.

For my words to automatically be wise and filled with kindness, I must first have my thoughts filled with wisdom and kindness.  I must purposefully be thinking on good things.  When the bad thoughts come I must kick them out as fast as I notice that they are not good.  That is easy to say and hard to do.  But I believe it is worth the effort.

What do you think?  Leave me a comment and let me know ok?

May I pray for you today?

Dear Lord,
I ask that you help everyone that visits this blog today to be filled with your love and kindness and goodness . Teach them true wisdom that comes only from you.

Help each one with their problems and the painful issues that arise.  Give them the wisdom to know how to move forward and overcome. 

Life is not always easy but it is a gift from you dear Lord.  Help us to take time today and see the beauty of our world.

Thank you Father God for hearing and answering our prayers.
