July 31

Greetings: God bless you this day!

THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Following Jesus, as we serve the crowds around us. It may take the form
of social services, education, or financial contributions,  instead of loves
and fish. But it will occur where our compassion and resources intersect.
(Billy Silvey-Power for Today.)

SCRIPTURE:
To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an
example, that you should follow his steps. 1 Peter 2:21

And sometimes His footsteps may lead to scary places... but He will never lead
where He will not go Himself!

Know I prayed for you today. Blessings-Freda

July 30

Greetings: God bless yo this day!

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
God's presence is with us now,  even though sometimes we feel alone, alienated,
scared and forgotten. We often overlook His presence., because we don't
recognize it. Our talents, our desires and our pursuits are all evidence of
His presence. (Hazelden Meditations)

SCRIPTURE:
Let us make man in our image, our likeness.
Genesis 1: 26

And the talents He gives each of us are the proof of God's interest in each of
us... not to mention that He sent His Son to die for the sins of each of us!

July 29

Greetings: God bless you this day!

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
God saves us from defeat, not troubles. No one is happy all the
time. Burdens will either shatter or strengthen our faith, it depends
on what's inside. (Jane McWhorter)

SCRIPTURE:
Put on the whole armor of God, so you may stand against the devil's
schemes.  Ephesians 6:11

We must make sure the Holy Spirit dwells inside.

June 28

Greetings: God bless you this day!

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
Give me a sense of humor, Lord;
Give me the grace to see a joke,
To get some happiness from life,
And pass it on to other folk.
(Thomas H. B. Webb)

SCRIPTURE:
A cheerful heart is good medicine. But a crushed spirit dries up the
bones. Proverbs 17:22

The old adage:  Smile and the world smiles with you... cry and you
cry alone... is pretty much true. Who would you rather be around,
a whiner or a smiler?

Know I prayed for you today. Blessings-Freda

July 27

Greetings: God bless you this Lord's Day!

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
Where did David get his courage? He believed in God. In faith
we need to step out, face our enemy head on and claim our victory
in the name of Jesus Christ. He has fought the battle and won, on
our behalf, but we need to stand up, step out and sling our rock.
Victory is ours in Christ! (Daily Disciples Devotional)

SCRIPTURE:
Let no man's heart fail because of him; your servant will go and fight
this Philistine. 1 Samuel 17:32

Whatever giant you face,  you do not face it alone, God will stand by you!

Know I prayed for you today. Blessing-Freda

July 26

Greetings: God bless you this day!

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
Sometimes we feel discouraged that we cannot perform the grand
headline deeds that impact thousands. Yet, Jesus affirms that the
smallest act of love and kindness demonstrated in the name of Christ
is noticed. Little is much when God is in it.
(Perry C. Cotham-Power for Today)

SCRIPTURE:
Anyone who gives a cup of cold water in my name because you belong to
Christ will certainly not lose his reward. Mark 9:41

We need to remember it s not how much, but our willingness that counts!

July 25

Greetings: God bless you this day!

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
Our conflicts are our special lessons in life. We can learn
to flow through them, as we grow and change, when we depend
on the power greater than ourselves. (Hazelden Meditations)

SCRIPTURE:
The Lord is God and he has made his light shine upon us.
Psalm 118:27

That higher power, of course, is God. And through each conflict, we
need to let and go and let God!

Know I prayed for you today. Blessings-Freda
