Day 89: the g o a l

For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ. Galatians 1:10

 

May my heart and yours seek to please God and God alone. May we recognize the difference by the illumination of the Lord Jesus Christ. May we remember that He Knows Our Names and He sees us. One day He will be the one to say, “Well done good and faithful SERVANT.” Lord Jesus, strengthen our hearts.

Day 57: oh HAPPY DaY!

I was speaking to a colleague today that told me he categorized his Friday’s as HAPPY and his Monday’s as MaNiC!  He was just not happy on Monday’s and instead overwhelmed by them……so much so that even on this lovely Friday, he was already thinking ahead to the ever dreadful Monday!

How about you? Do you have categories for days? I know for me, there are days that pose more challenges than others. Does that make it BAD? I guess it is all how they are looked at. What do we tell ourselves about them? Are we even aware? Are we telling ourselves the TRUTH? Are are days filled with LIFE? Or are we speaking dread, gloom, and death over ourselves?

Are we making the most of THIS day?

 Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.  Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.  Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit,  speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord,  always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Ephesians 5: 15-20

Lord, may our hearts thank You for every day You have given us. May we lean on You during the challenging days.  May we rejoice in You LORD.  May we ask You to fill us every day with joy in You that we may be strong. Fill us with good thoughts. Keep our eyes on You! May we shine each day in love with YOU!

 

WE ARE

by Kari Jobe

Every secret, every shame
Every fear, every pain
Live inside the dark
But that’s not who we are
We are children of the day

So wake up sleeper, lift your head
We were meant for more than this
Fight the shadows conquer death
Make the most of the time we have left

We are the light of the world
We are the city on a hill
We are the light of the world
We gotta, we gotta, we gotta let the light shine

We are the light of the world
We are the city on a hill
We are the light of the world
We gotta, we gotta, we gotta let the light shine
Let the light shine, let the light shine

We are called to the spread the news
Tell the world the simple truth
Jesus came to save, there’s freedom in His Name
So let His love break through

We are the light of the world
We are the city on a hill
We are the light of the world
We gotta, we gotta, we gotta let the light shine

We are the light of the world
We are the city on a hill
We are the light of the world
We gotta, we gotta, we gotta let the light shine
