Your Mission for Today

Dear God, what would you have me do today?

My beloved Child, your mission for today is to be a light. Be merciful and kind. Be hopeful, helpful, and filled with the light of my love!

“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.” ~ Matthew 5:14-16

Without the Shedding of Blood

“And without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins.” Hebrews 9:22b

The journey of life is not always easy. Of all the things I’m thankful for, the greatest is the cross of Christ! There I can exchange my burdens for peace and rest. If you’re feeling weighed down by sorrow or sin today, know that you can come to the cross and lay your burdens down . . .

Cross Thoughts

EC6A4D17-30E7-481B-80DC-3470BEE7E8BE

When I think about the cross of Christ so many emotions come to mind. The foremost being gratefulness…

Jesus washed away my sins, gave me a fresh start, accepted me, and calls me beautiful and eternally loved! Nothing in this life can compare to these priceless gifts. And no heartache can rob me of the joy of having them. Meditating on all Christ has done for me calms my soul and reminds me of what is truly important in life–my relationship with God.

When we begin our day with a grateful heart we won’t find room to complain. Thankfulness and negativity cannot co-exist. Negativity drains our energy. Reject it in all its forms and renew your mind with the life giving words of Christ. Embrace all that is good, lovely, and pure, and all that Christ accomplished at the cross. Focus on these things and the peace of God will be with you.

Praying for a grateful heart 💜

Forget Not

Life is tough. But no matter what we are going through, there’s always something to be thankful for . . .

“Praise the Lord, my soul,

and forget not all his benefits—

who forgives all your sins

and heals all your diseases,

who redeems your life from the pit

and crowns you with love and compassion,

who satisfies your desires with good things

so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”

–Psalm 103

Life Lesson about Gratitude, Learned from my Dog

 A Life Lesson about Gratitude, Learned from my Dog!

with Leila Grandemange, the author of
Pawz and Pray, Short Reflections about God, Life, and the Dogs I Love!

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.” ~ Melody Beattie
