“This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad. Something beautiful, something good, all my confusion he understood. All I had to offer Him was brokenness and strife and he made something beautiful in my life. All to Jesus I surrender, all to him I freely give, I will ever trust him in his presence daily live. Whisper a prayer the morning, Whisper a prayer at noon, whisper a prayer in the evening, to keep your heart in tune. What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and grief to bare, what a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer. Every body ought to know who Jesus is, who Jesus is. He’s the lily of the valley, the bright and morning star. It is well, it is well, it is well, it is well with my soul. Jesus loves me this I know for the Bible tells me so, yes Jesus loves me, yes Jesus loves me, yes Jesus loves me the bible tells me so. My God is so big, so strong and so mighty there is nothing my God can not do, my God is so big, so strong and so mighty there is nothing my God cannot do for you. Rise and shine and give God the glory, glory, rise and shine and Give God the Glory, glory, rise and shine and give God the glory, glory children of the Lord. Trust and Obey for there’s no other way to be happy in Jesus but to trust and obey.”
There are several ways to overcome discouragement and for me one way is to sing. Many of the praise songs are from God’s Holy Word. Another way is to read the bible on a daily basis, I find much encouragement as I write my prayers using a prayer journal from Becky Tirabassi. I write with a purple pen, I am writing to my King with the color of purple which to me signifies royal. If I am angry and need to write about this and do not want anyone to read it, I write and then run the paper through the shedder. I end my prayers with thanksgiving and that always improves my mood. Lastly, remember that God is with you in your day.
Are you discourage today? SING Sanctified, Intimacy, New, Grace. We are sanctified through Christ, which gives us intimacy, and every day is new and God’s mercy and grace are yours for the asking.
S-Sanctify John 17:17-18 Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.
I-Intimacy John 10:14 I am the good shepherd and I know my sheep and my sheep know me.
N-New Psalm 40:3 He put a new son in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord. Ephesians 4:22-24 You were taught with regard to you former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires, to be made new in your attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
G- Grace Acts 11:23 When he arrived and saw the evidence of the grace of God, he was glad and encouraged them all to remain true to the Lord with all their hearts. Romans 3:24 We are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
Once I heard this for the word INTIMACY. IN TO ME SEE. God knows when we are discouraged, God desires a relationship with us and he desires intimacy with us. Jesus provided the way for our intimacy. John 17, Jesus prays for us. He is in heaven at the right hand of God, interceding for us and he sent the Holy Spirit so that we may have comfort.
Are you discouraged? Let go and let God. Today, how can you focus on Jesus instead of your pain.
Father God I want to pray for every woman reading this page. Allow her to draw close to you. You promise that you care for us and you love us. Each day let her come before you and praise you, singing thanksgiving and praise.
As a child, I learned many songs so I can sing forever. Songs that encourage me, “Great is His Faithfulness” “It is Well” “What a Friend We Have In Jesus” and “Amazing Grace.” “When you walk with the Lord in the light of his word, what glory he shed on our way, while we do his good will he abides with us still and with all who will trust and obey, Trust and obey for there is no other way to be happy in Jesus but to trust and obey.” Lastly, Count your blessings name them one by one, count your blessings see what God has done, count your blessings name them one by one, count your many blessings see what God has done.” Are you counting?
