Romans 8:26-28 The Message

Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.

Romans 12:17-19 The Message 

Don’t hit back; discover beauty in everyone. If you’ve got it in you, get along with everybody. Don’t insist on getting even; that’s not for you to do. “I’ll do the judging,” says God. “I’ll take care of it.”

Exodus 14:14 The Message 

God will fight the battle for you.
And you? You keep your mouth shut!

Romans 5:3-5 The Message 

There’s more to come: We continue to shout our praise even when we’re hemmed in with troubles, because we know how troubles can develop passionate patience in us, and how that patience in turn forges the tempered steel of virtue, keeping us alert for whatever God will do next. In alert expectancy such as this, we’re never left feeling shortchanged. Quite the contrary—we can’t round up enough containers to hold everything God generously pours into our lives through the Holy Spirit!

Luke 6:37-38 The Message

“Don’t pick on people, jump on their failures, criticize their faults—unless, of course, you want the same treatment. Don’t condemn those who are down; that hardness can boomerang. Be easy on people; you’ll find life a lot easier. Give away your life; you’ll find life given back, but not merely given back—given back with bonus and blessing. Giving, not getting, is the way. Generosity begets generosity.”

Mark 11:22-25 The Message

Jesus was matter-of-fact: “Embrace this God-life. Really embrace it, and nothing will be too much for you. This mountain, for instance: Just say, ‘Go jump in the lake’—no shuffling or shilly-shallying—and it’s as good as done. That’s why I urge you to pray for absolutely everything, ranging from small to large. Include everything as you embrace this God-life, and you’ll get God’s everything. And when you assume the posture of prayer, remember that it’s not all asking. If you have anything against someone, forgive—only then will your heavenly Father be inclined to also wipe your slate clean of sins.”

Ephesians 5:1-2 The Message 

Watch what God does, and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents. Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with him and learn a life of love. Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. He didn’t love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us. Love like that.

Obviously I have been called on the carpet and brought face to face with some of my own tactics. It was not pretty; it was not peaceful; it was not kind; it came from hurt I know too well.

Lord, we are to be thankful in all things. This was painful. This was hurtful. This showed me a side of myself I could not have seen had it not been done unto me this way.

Lord, I must beg forgiveness from You, for the many times I have behaved badly and treated others with aggression and malice. I also need to ask forgiveness from those I’ve wronged. How can I expect an apology when I have not apologized myself.

I have been given notice; I took notice; I saw and shuttered to think I was and have been capable of that kind of ire.

Please cleanse me, Lord. I am unworthy of all the Good You have most generously and lovingly given me. Search my heart. Heal my hurt. Help me to give up and let You take complete control over my thoughts and actions.

I stand convicted of my sins. I stand openly revealed. I stand in need of transformation. I stand ready to receive Your Loving Mercy and Grace.  Amen

 

Better Day

by The Gaither Vocal Band

Could that view from your window
Be a little bit brighter?
Could that load you’ve been carrying
Feel a little bit lighter?

Well hold on, just hold on
That crayon sun’s got a smile on its face
Those clouds hangin’ ’round no, they ain’t gonna stay
Keep your arms wide open ’cause it’s heading’ your way

Look, come yonder there’s a better day
Better day… better day…
Could those legs you’ve been walkin’ on
Feel a little bit stronger?

Could that rain you’ve been walking through
Not last much longer?
Well hold on, just hold on
Oh, that crayon sun’s got a smile on its face

Those clouds hangin’ ’round, no they ain’t gonna stay
Keep your arms wide open ’cause it’s heading’ your way
Look, come yonder there’s a better day
Better day… better day…

Keep your arms wide open ’cause it’s heading’ your way
Look, come yonder there’s a better day
Better day… better day…
Could those dreams you’ve been dreamin’

Find a few more believers?
Could that song you’ve been singin’
Be a little bit sweeter?
Well, that crayon sun’s got a smile on its face

Those clouds hangin’ ’round, no they ain’t gonna stay
Keep your arms wide open ’cause it’s heading’ your way
Look, come yonder there’s a better day
Better day… better day…

There’s gonna be a better day
There’s gonna be a better day
