Let It Go…! #thebestmeicanbe #love

let it go“Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.

Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving  each other, just as in Christ God forgave you..”

Ephesians 4:31-32

Standing tall in the light of God’s grace…

Letting Him wash the muck and mire of bitterness…slander rage and malice…

Oh Dear Heavenly Father,

Your love is so beautiful… so good and so kind.

How I pray if there is any bitterness that has rooted in me, You would reveal it…

It is my heart’s desire to live truly free; truly surrounded by Your beauty and grace..

To truly let go of ugly thoughts…

To truly live a life of love…

To truly be the best me I can be…

Thank You for loving me…

I Just Want To Do Good Things … #thebestmeicanbe

love does things“Trust in the Lord and do good…”

Psalm 37:3

One little thing…

Any little thing…

Love does good things :)

Gently closing the door to drama can feel scary… even wrong…

We get used to that crazy pace of worry and confusion.

It’s a trap… and it holds our hearts hostage to all the good we could be doing…

Love does things…

Love sets our hearts free, and inspires hope in others lives..

Today, Oh Lord, I want to do good things…

I want to trust You..

I want to be awesome..

I just want to do good things…

I love You, Jesus,

Pushing to be the best me I can be!

Thank You for all the good things You have done for me…

In Your name, I pray,

Amen

Live in Love,

Lisa

She Who Is Brave… #thebestmeicanbe
