Let It Be That Simple… #encourageoneanother

 

like a flood his mercy reginsLike a flood His mercy reigns…

How sweet are these words to my soul…

Dear Father, thank You for Your peace that transcends all understanding…

Today,  As I quiet my soul, and fix my heart On You; I choose to drop the walls of protection and sense the wonder of Your hands… before Your throne of mercy, I can be vulnerable… hopeful and excited to be the woman You know I can be…

Your mercy sets me free… Your mercy gives me life…

Today I will let Your mercy shine bright…

May someone see the love You have poured in my heart…

May someone want to know You…

How good and true and beautiful are You…

Today.  Wherever I find myself, may You touch those around me with Your gentleness and hope…

This is my message to the world…

Let my life’s ministry be that simple…

Life is short…

Use me today, Oh Lord, I am Yours…

In Jesus Name,

I pray,

Amen…

Live in Love,

Lisa

How true is that!

There have been so many times that someone’s nice words have changed the course of my day.

How I want to be sensitive to other’s hearts…

Oh, Lord, How great is Your love that You cast  over me.

So sensitive, So  calming and So true..

As I come before You, this beautiful new day, I am  so thankful for this place.. this place of quiet.. of  calm… full of Your Holy goodness…

 I lay down thoughts of myself, and ask You to replace them with thoughts of You…

Of Your purity and joy…

Please soften my heart with Your touch… Make me pliable…  open to love those who You bring into my day…

A few nice words… A loving touch, eyes that validate and have compassion…

That is my prayer for today…

In Jesus Name, I pray,

Amen

Live in Love,

Lisa

Vain Conceit… #encourageoneanother

“If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from His love, if any fellowship with the Spirit,

if any tenderness and compassion, then  make my joy complete by being like minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose..

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves..”

2 Philippians 2:11

Good Morning Dear Heavenly Father,

How good is Your love, and how beautiful it is to love others…

Thank You for turning my eyes away from selfish ambitions, and reminding me that loving each other is the purest form of Your goodness…

Protect my heart from vain conceit…

Cover me with Your love…

May my thoughts and words be beautiful to unto You…

In Jesus Name, I pray,

Amen

Live in Love,

Lisa
