Victory

Nothing but encouragement can come to us as we dwell upon the faithful dealing of our Heavenly Father in centuries gone by. Faith in God has not saved people from hardships and trials, but it has enabled them to bear tribulations courageously and to emerge victoriously.” Lee Roberson

But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. I Corinthians 13:57

fears

Of all the liars in the world, sometimes the worst are our own fears.”
— Rudyard Kipling

Feed your faith and your fears will starve to death. ~Author Unknown

I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Psalm 34:4

faith

Sorrow looks back, Worry looks around, Faith looks up!

Ralph Waldo Emerson

 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1

grace

My trust in God flows out of the experience of his loving me, day in and day out, whether the day is stormy or fair, whether I’m sick or in good health, whether I’m in a state of grace or disgrace. He come to me where I live and loves me as I am. Brennan Manning

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God– not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

trust

Faith don’t come in a bushel basket, Missy. It come one step at a time. Decide to trust Him for one little thing today, and before you know it, you find out He’s so trustworthy you be putting your whole life in His hands.”   Lynn Austin, Candle in the Darkness

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.   Proverbs 3:5,6

It is there

May today there be peace within.

May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.

May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content knowing you are a child of God.

Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.

It is there for each and every one of us.” Teresa of Avila

 

GRACE

The marker of those who understand the gospel of Jesus Christ is that, when they stumble and fall, when they screw up, they run to God and not from him, because they clearly understand that their acceptance before God is not predicated upon their behavior but on the righteous life of Jesus Christ and his sacrificial death.”  Matt Chandler

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God– not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9
