In honor of Black History- Quote: “Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.”—Booker T. Washington
I give thanks to Him who has granted me (the needed) strength and made me able (for this), Christ Jesus our Lord, because He has judged and counted me faithful and trustworthy, appointing me to (this stewardship of) the ministry. 1 Timothy 1:12(AMPC)
This is the day that the Lord has made let us rejoice and be glad in it. Today I encourage you look back over my life, and offer praise to God for gift of his saving grace! As you reflect over your life the beauty is that you don’t look like what you been through! You’re not who you used to be and yet you are still becoming who God created you to be. Speak life over yourself today: “You are loved…You are more than enough…You got this…You are bold…You are fierce…and with God on your side You will survive! You are who God says you are. Shake off the haters and walk boldly into this day with your head held up high. We are children of the Most High God and heirs to the throne. Know your worth and offer praise to our creator. Worship God for all that he’s already done in your life. Remember every step we take, he is with us! The blood of Jesus covers you from the top of your head to the souls of your feet. Speak those things that are not IN faith, as though they were. No weapon formed against you will prosper. Remember God didn’t say that we wouldn’t face opposition, trials, or tribulations. But he said that the attacks would not over-take us. Join me if praising God for today, and the brand new opportunities to be used by him! Even in the midst of a pandemic, there is work for us to do! We owe God our very best! Bless him for all that he has done and for the many blessings that he has so graciously given you. And if truth be told, if he don’t ever bless us again, he’s already done enough. Amen! God has been better to us than we could ever be to ourselves! Spend some time losing yourself in worship today. The songwriter said: “I’ve had some good days, and I’ve had some bad days, I’ve had some hills to climb…I’ve had some weary days, And some sleepless nights. But when I look around, And I think things over, All of my good days, out-weigh my bad days, I won’t complain.” Amen! Give thanks to the Lord for he is good and faithful! I don’t know how you feel about it, but I will bless the Lord at all times, and his praise shall continuously be in my mouth. With my hands, I’ll praise him! With the fruit of my lips, I will praise him! In good times, in bad times, with a smile on my face, and even with tears rolling down my eyes…I will give him all the praise!!! We are indeed too Blessed to be stressed! I can’t tell your story, and you can’t tell my story; but we can all share our testimony of how good God has been in spite of us. Amen! Have a fabulous day and join me in giving thanks to God, because He alone is worthy of all the praise!
Most Holy and all wise God, Spirit of the Living God…we come as humbly as we know how to come; to bow down before you and bask in your glory once again. We give you all the honor and the praise that is rightfully due unto you! Great is thy faithfulness! Truly there is none like you in all the earth! We thank you for this day that was not promised to us and for the new mercies that we see. If we had ten thousand tongues, we couldn’t thank you enough. Father forgive us for falling short of your glory, for our sins, and our iniquities, and please forgive those who have sinned against us. Lord we praise you for your steadfast love that never ceases. We thank you for keeping us in good health and continually healed from the crown of our heads to the soles of our feet. We are so grateful that you promised to supply all of our needs according to your riches and glory by Christ Jesus. We thank you also for abundant blessings in every area of our life. O Lord help us to walk in the Spirit this day, as well as every day. Because you said that if we walk in the Spirit we would not fulfill the lust of the flesh. We love you, we honor you, and we thank you in advance for keeping us in the midst of it all. We plead the blood of Jesus over our families. Please continue to keep them safe from dangers seen and unseen. With everything that is within us, we praise your Holy name! Let the words of our mouth and the meditation of our heart be acceptable in your sight. Bless us individually, as well collectively as a whole, for it’s in your darling son Jesus name we pray, give thanks, and say Amen!
