“My voice shalt Thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto Thee, and will look up.” Psalm 5:3
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: Christianity is a love relationship. You cannot love someone that you do not know. And you cannot know someone that you don’t spend quality time with.
To know Jesus is to love Him. To love Him is to trust Him. To trust Him is to obey Him. To obey Him is to be blessed.
It begins with a quality, daily communication with the Lord. Why is it best to spend time with the Lord in the morning? Because you are getting ready to go on a road trip through life. You don’t take the trip and then read the map, do you?
ACTION POINT: How are you starting your mornings? With a cup of coffee and the paper? Or with the pure milk of the Word and the light of His presence?
LORD, help me to pray for me and to forgive me. We are told to forgive outside of ourselves. Help me inside of me to forgive me. May I rest today LORD in the HOLY SPIRIT, who will guide me to the throne of rest and forgiveness…..
“Woe to those who make unjust laws, to those who issue oppressive decrees, to deprive the poor of their rights and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people making widows their prey and robbing the fatherless. What will you do on the day of reckoning, when disaster comes from afar? To whom will you run for help? where will you leave your riches?” ~~ Isaiah 10:1-3
What do you know? What are you led to do today? That life is not fair. Let’s get involved, and help those who live with injustice.
Millions of people do this during Lent as a sign of sacrifice and to test their self-discipline.
Christians believe that this is to represent Christ’s sacrifice when he went into the desert to pray and fast for 40 days before later dying on the cross.
In The New Testament, while Christ was there, Satan tempted him to turn away from His earthly mission and purpose to worship him instead. Christ refused, which is why people may give something up, in order to test their self-discipline.
Could you give up something you “truly” enjoy for the next 28 days, to prove you are disciplined?
Do you try the changing trends(as the chart above shows) or are you a tried and true short and active or natural nail wearer? Which shape has given you a longer and better wear for your lifestyle? It is not always the polish that is the chipping culprit.
