God is more interested in developing me into a tool for his service rather than a trophy for his mantel.
I am a nobody trying to tell everybody about the Somebody who can save us all.
For a child of God his mercy will last longer and be stronger than his discipline.
I am glad God gave us commandments. How else would we know how to please Him?
Does God intend for me to be a soldier or a lamb, a crusader or a teacher, a fierce defender of the faith or a little child approaching Jesus?
May God’s joy in my heart soften my judgements of others and allow his grace to spill over onto them.
A life of service to God is much to be preferred over a life of comfort for self. Do we really believe that?
God applies his forgiveness to our sins with eagerness and joy, not with reluctance and regret. As much as that forgiveness cost Him…..the death of Jesus…..we can be sure He delights in applying it to us. I must give to others what God has given me.
Dear Father, slow me down before I break down and lift me up before I blow up.
