So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.
Matthew 10:31 NLT
I am feeling discouraged already. I desparately need the fruit of God’s joy and peace already. There is no real reason why. However I can not let this define my day and must stamp on this attitude now.
If you are feeling discouraged or disheartened today, pray for God’s peace and joy and see what happens.
Dear Jesus, Thank you that you love me, And that I am worth so much to you. So much you died for me, taking my place so that I can live. Discouragement is lingering, Trying to seep into my bones, My inner being and Spirit disturbed. This is not what you want, And I cannot let this define my day. Please keep your armour on me and fill me with your peace. Let this day be filled with testimonies of your love, Laughter and pure joy. I don't know what my day holds, But one thing I know is that Jesus, you will not leave my side. So through you spirit today. Keep me on your narrow path Radiating your light to all that I pass. Amen
I constantly seem to wish my life away to the weekend. Monday I normally label “make it through Monday”. But life shouldn’t be about making it through the day. It should be about living, embracing life and dropping the labels. My Monday today isn’t defined by making it through the day.
Dear Jesus, I have already woken up feeling like I just need to make it through Monday. This is not right and I don't want to wish my life away. The news is doom and gloom, My energy levels low. Before my day starts, let me take rest in you. Restore me,renew me, refresh me. Bless me with joy, Give me energy, passion, And a heart for you. Let my day be led by you. Help me to share your love today, Spread your joy and enjoy my day. Work,play and family time, Let it all be to glorify you. Amen.

I could of been a doctor, lawyer or teacher, If I only tried harder at school, I could of been a pastor, minister or missionary, If I decided bible school was my thing. I could be 6ft tall if nature didn't have it's way, 4ft 11" is good enough for me. I could of been rich if I had that one idea, An entrepreneur, celebrity or more.
But coulda, shoulda, woulda is only a mindset, I am rich in ways beyond this world, I have health and family, And most importantly, a God that loves me so.
My identity is in Christ, And nothing else. I am defined by Jesus not anything else. Could does not exist in a person of love and forgiveness. I am who I am, Faults and all, Created to love and share Jesus to all. I could be anything in this world, But I chose to follow Jesus, And do best I can do, to show his love, grace and mercy along the way, Spreading the gospel in every way.
