I come to end of the week realizing that I am low on energy and very tired. Often times the situations of life will zap our strength. Therefore, I want to simply unload some thoughts as this week of devotions comes to an end.
Some of the following are my thoughts, some are Scripture, some are quotes from others, some come out of I don’t know where… but I pray for the inspiration you and I need to be strong in the Lord!
Find a need and fill it. Find a hurt and heal it. Tommy Barnett
You think much differently when you are preparing for death and know that it is near. Mine
Forgiveness is something hard to understand but vital for great living. To hold on to unforgiveness is to cut off strength and to ask for less energy every day. To freely give meaningful forgiveness is to be a giver of life, the conduit of dreams and an influencer of people living with purpose. Mine
Psalm 34:18 NASB
The Lord is near to the brokenhearted And saves those who are crushed in spirit.
And the church needs to get over it and stare this dirty little secret in the face (speaking of mental illness). Because when they do it will unleash a whole army of Christians who, at the moment, feel like they don't have enough faith to lead. Carlos Whittaker
1 Corinthians 9:24 NASB
… Run in such a way that you may win.
Victory doesn’t come by accident. War Room movie quote
Joshua 1:7 NASB
Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you go.
In marriage we must learn that our spouse is not the enemy. We must fight for and not against each other. Mine but taken from a sermon from Craig Groeshell
I am a broker of hope. David Foster
I’d like to see the church in you, bro. War Room movie quote said by Michael Jr.
Whoever shows up most in a person’s life wins the battle of influence. Matthew Barnett
A living relationship with God is vital to anyone, and we desperately need a God-given, God-infused, God-breathed vision. Mine
That is enough for now. Have a great weekend and remember who is in total control. Not you. Not me. But God!
