Self-talk…

Did you say negative things about yourself today?

Would you say those things if you were face to face with God?

Do not insult your father by insulting yourself. He created you with an abundance of love, he adores you, he deems you worthy of all good things. Next time you want to utter something negative about yourself, try saying “I am blessed for the person you have made me Lord and negativity has no place in my life.”

Affliction…

The suffering we see around us today can make a person feel like there is nothing they can do to help, because frankly, they feel that the amount of suffering is overwhelming. But draw near to the Lord today in all your afflictions and pray for the afflicted. Joy and love reside in the presence of the Lord. You can feel loved and joyful today and you can share that same love and joy simply by knowing that Comfort and compassion can be found in him. 

Isaiah 49:13New International Version (NIV)
13 Shout for joy, you heavens;rejoice, you earth;    burst into song, you mountains!For the Lord comforts his people and will have compassion on his afflicted ones.

The best..

No matter where you are today, no matter what you are going through, remember that with God, the best is yet to come !! 

Jeremiah 29:11New International Version (NIV)11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
