🙏 Heavenly Father, help me to be gracious in my words and thoughts so that I uplift others in love. The world is a messed up place but I know this is only my temporary home. Open my eyes to see what you see so that love emanates from my Spirit in all my actions. Thankful for you, my Savior and my Friend. 💙 #prayer#devotional#thebiblehasanswers#openyourbible#talktogod
At all times, pray by the power of the Spirit. Pray all kinds of prayers. Be watchful, so that you can pray. Always keep on praying for all of God's people.
Ephesians 6:18 NIRV
All Kinds. God isn't just interested in our Meal Prayers or Bedtime Prayers. He wants all kinds. He wants Thanksgiving. He wants Requests. He wants Rambling Makes No Sense Prayers. He wants them all.
Kimberlee is out of town seeing family. We have had to just text as the cell phone coverage where they are staying is horrible. Talk about hard. I would love to talk to her on the phone and talk to her more. That is probably why this sticks out to me more. God wants to hear it all. We may often say, He is our best friend. But do we talk to Him like one. Spend time just chatting with God. Telling Him about your day. He would love to hear about it.
The past week has been rough. That is an understatement. Monday I woke up and thought something was wrong with my precious baby girl, so we had to rush to the hospital. Tuesday there was a heartbreaking, deadly shooting in Florida which caused lockdown procedure overviews in my classroom that lead into sad, real conversations about how to survive a school shooting. Saturday our teachers and public employees rallied at the Capitol where it was decided that all school personnel would submit to a work stoppage at the end of the coming week. You name it... it happened.
I found myself crying last night because I was so overwhelmed with life. I realized that I hadn’t made time to do anything that I enjoyed to help release the stress and negativity. No reading, meditating, listening to music, light prenatal yoga or just talking to God. I had been so worked up that I let my personal development just fall away and I really felt it deep within my soul. I felt so broken and empty. I decided that was enough of that! I have more to worry about that the issues at hand. I have my baby girl to worry about, so taking care of myself is the most important thing to me right now.
This Sunday I set some intentions for the coming week to read 10 minutes before bed nightly, meditate 5 minutes before bed, do light prenatal yoga stretches 3 days, and talk to God at least 4 different times in my day. I want to reconnect to my positive vibes and open myself back up to love! ✌🏼💕💕✨ Here’s to a better, positive week! #sundayintentions#gettinbackmygoodvibes#goodvibesonly#positivityiskey#bepositive#selflove#meditate#talktogod#loveyourself
It’s always encouraging when I receive a message or call from loved ones, even if it’s just saying, “I’ve been thinking about you.” Now imagine getting a message like that from God Himself!
You are always on God’s mind. In fact the Bible records that God Himself has you written on the palms of his hands. “I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands”
He has not forgotten you, He is not unaware of what is happening in your life. He has a vast and glorious plan for you. God knows your name. He knew you even before you were born. He has set you apart for a special purpose. “The Lord called me before my birth; from within the womb he called me by name.”
Take some time today and tell God how much you love Him, thank Him, tell Him you’ve been thinking about Him. He wants to hear from you.
