Luke 1: 78-79(GW) “A new day will dawn on us from above because our God is loving and merciful. He will give light to those who live in the dark and in death’s shadow. He will guide us into the way of peace.” Robin Robinson Bohlin
SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by MARSHA BURNS
Do not worry about what lies ahead. You have this moment today to make the most of your life. Stay present with Me, says the Lord. Refuse to lag behind by focusing on the past or what might have been. And, resist the temptation to project out into the future. Whatever you presume for the days ahead will not be what you think. Live in the truth of where you are now.
Matthew 6:34a Therefore do not worry about tomorrow.
Ask the Lord to send you the help you will need because things are changing quickly. Doug Addison
January 3, 2018. This too shall pass. It has not come to stay; it has come to pass. It has been a hard time lately. Don’t allow your thinking to settle for the bad that has come. Instruct your mind that this hard time will pass. Let your thinking come to the present and hope for the future, believing that events are getting better. Yes, there will always be challenges. They are momentary light afflictions. Keep your mind focused on momentary.
2 Corinthians 4:17-18 (NASB) “For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” Bev Robinson
January 3, 2018. Admit it, some of the arguments you have had lately are pointless. You have driven your point of view home to reinforce your perspective, but at what cost? Have you actually gained anything by your so-called triumph? Pride, it’s found in everyone. You can learn to restrain your tongue by humbling yourself and living with others in understanding ways. Get creative and discover means to bestow My love to others. Arguing is overrated. Alter your irrational behavior.
James 4:1-2 (MSG) “Where do you think all these appalling wars and quarrels come from? Do you think they just happen? Think again. They come about because you want your own way, and fight for it deep inside yourselves. You lust for what you don’t have and are willing to kill to get it. You want what isn’t yours and will risk violence to get your hands on it.” Kevin Robinson
January 3, 2018. Can you feel the newness of the season? Let your mind dream and your mind’s eye imagine. See the vision, catch the vision, walk out the vision. A new day is here and a new anointing is here. Be as bold as a lion and put off timidity. People will follow you; show them My plan. They will line up as soldiers in a queue. Possibilities abound. I will even speak to you in the night hours.
