Friday Joy: Peace for Our World

“i have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. in this world you will have trouble. but take heart! i have overcome the world.” john 16_33

Let’s lift up our world’s troubles to Jesus today my sweet friend.  Let’s give Him our fears and doubts, for I just know in my heart that He is a loving, forgiving, and saving God who has overcome this world.

Love and peace to you this weekend friend.  I will be posting on Wednesdays in February and as March rolls in like a lion, Living Joy Today will be rolling in with a new look and a new series on Jesus, The Lion and the Lamb!

 

Look Up, Let Go, Live Joy!

Friday Joy: Three Bible Verses To Pray When You Need to Hear From God

Collage 2019-01-02 05_46_04

Glorious Friday, Friend!  I pray  God blesses us today and throughout the weekend.  Here are three verses we can take along with us to pray when we need to hear from Jesus. There are so many many more, this is just a start. I know they have given me peace, wisdom, discernment, and guidance I pray they will do the same for you!

We can pray Hebrews 4:16 when we need mercy and grace:  “Heavenly Father, I come confidently to your throne, I need your mercy and grace in my life”

When we need to see with a different perspective we can pray Psalm 119:18: “God, open my eyes so I can see the amazing truths in your instructions”

Pray Psalm 29:11 for strength and peace: “Lord, today I need your strength.  I come to you today and ask for your blessing of peace.”

And the Winner is:  Marian H.  Congrats Marian

I will be sending you a copy of Lysa Terkeurst’s Book, “It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way, Finding Unexpected Strength When Disappointments Leave You Shattered.”9780718039851

Whatever you are searching for today friend, cry out to Jesus. Ask him for understanding, wisdom, forgiveness, discernment, peace, hope, healing and He will answer. Set aside some quiet time this weekend  just for Jesus.  Be still and Know.

Next week I will be focusing on hearing from God through prayer.  Have a blessed weekend friend!

Happy Friday Friend,

Happy Friday!

Sometimes it can be difficult to find peace this time of year. However, when we remember to keep Jesus the reason for the season, I believe we will find the peace He meant for us to enjoy.  The evil one is lurking my friend, and he is nothing like the Grinch. His heart will never grow four sizes larger on any day and he never wants to see your’s grow deeper for your Savior, Jesus. Don’t let him steal your peace this Advent season.  Take time with Jesus.

This week’s winner of my Advent Gift Card Give Away is:
