Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right,
whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute,
if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.
The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me,
practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
~ Philippians 4:8
We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God,
and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
~ 2 Corinthians 10:5
May your thoughts be centered on Christ, focused on the Heavenly realms and beautifully grounded in God’s peace. Let not the winds carry your thoughts away with it, but instead, take each thought captive and relinquish them into the hands of God. Surely, He designed us to think freely….oh, what a gift to be treasured. Funny, that as I enter a new journey in my life, it is my thoughts that run away with me! Lo, and behold, today’s devotion for me was about letting God control my mind! Alas, I love when He speaks and I pray that you also hear His still, small voice reminding you that he is with you in the storms, trials, and temptations of life. It is His peace that comes when your thoughts are focused on the things above.
All my love ❤
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
~ Jeremiah 29:13
But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness,
and all these things will be added to you.
“So do not worry about tomorrow;
for tomorrow will care for itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own.
~ Matthew 6:33-34
If you seek Me, you will find Me
If you ask, I will give to you freely
If you knock, the door will be opened to you
If you desire, I will be in all that you do
If you examine, My truth you will find
If you trust, know that you will be refined
If you follow, my abundant blessings will flow
If you listen, you will hear Me wherever you go
If you challenge, you will rise above
If you pursue, you will feel My love
If you pray, My answer you will receive
If you claim, My freedom I will give
If you serve, in life you will rejoice
If you rest, you will hear My quiet voice
If you praise, a cheerful heart you will possess
If you love, you will find true happiness
If you hope, deep joy you will develop
If you surrender, My peace will envelop
All my love and may you seek God first in all that you do, for when He is the center of your life, all else falls into place. May the God of peace, mercy, and grace hold you in His arms now and always! ❤
And looking at them Jesus said to them,
“With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
~ Matthew 19:26
“It has often thrown him both into the fire and into the water to destroy him.
But if You can do anything, take pity on us and help us!” And Jesus said to him,
“‘If You can?’ All things are possible to him who believes.”
~ Mark 9:22-23
There are days when we just feel alone midst an all-consuming world! However, we can stand firm in the promise that God is with us always…he will never leave you or forsake you. Yes, there will persecution and suffering (John 16:33, John 15:19-20).
The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you;
he will never leave you nor forsake you.
Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
~ Deuteronomy 31:8
