I am sitting here the day after my birthday feeling a renewed sense of purpose. I desire to be all that God wants me to be! I don’t want to hold myself back with my own limited expectations. I want to live out GOD’S expectations of me.
LORD, I place myself in Your hands! Empower and Anoint me for the days ahead to be Your vessel of “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control…”.
May You be honored in everything I say and do. Forgive me, Father, where I have fallen short! Manifest Your purposes in and through me, O LORD!!
I’m willing…I’m ready! I stand with an open heart, an open spirit, an open mind, and arms opened wide! Fill all of me with YOU, LORD!
I worship and adore You!!
We may not have fig trees, grapevines, olive crops, flocks, and cattle … but we all have those physical things that sustain us in life.
There are times when things seem to be falling apart around us! And it is during those times that we have to dig deep inside of ourselves and realize that even though our circumstances may look bleak – our God is still shining brightly!
The God of our salvation is still with us; He is still moving on our behalf; He is indeed our strength when all we feel is weak.
What are you going through, beloved of God? You may not be able to rejoice in the circumstances…but rejoice in the Lord who is with you in them! Rejoice in the Lord who can use those circumstances to bring good into your life!
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 NIV
You are loved!!

Lord, this is the day that YOU have made. I CHOOSE to rejoice in it! You have given me each second, each minute, each hour. May I spend each one of them in such a way that what is bought is eternal. May I not waste the precious time that You have allotted to me! May I not take for granted the time that is before me. Thank You, Lord, for THIS day…may I live it for You…
…for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings; and you will go forth and skip about like calves from a stall. Malachi 4:2
When I get a vision of calves skipping about when they leave their stall…I see unhindered JOY! I see a release of care and embracing the moment! Beloved of God! May you live out this vision today!! Look up unto Your God and see your healing and receive it!!
…rejoice, O sons of Zion, and be glad in the LORD your God;
For He has given you the early rain for your vindication. And He has poured down for you the rain, The early and latter rain as before.
The threshing floors will be full of grain, And the vats will overflow with the new wine and oil.
