Proverbs 28:13 nlt

prv28(1)

We all have things we try to hide from others
and we may be able to hide them from people,
but we can hide nothing from God.
In the world’s eyes, we may be successful and prosperous,
but in God’s eyes we are poor and weak.
He waits patiently for us to come to Him and tell Him
anything and everything and ask His forgiveness for our wrongs.
He never withholds mercy to those who
come to Him with a contrite heart.

Are you sometimes hesitant to tell God everything?
Do you think He won’t forgive you? Why?

Jude 1:22 gw

jude1(5)

Just as we are shown mercy for our doubts we are to be merciful toward others.
We may not understand their doubts, but they are really no different than ours.
Part of loving one another is to walk through the shadows together 
with compassion and kindness without chastisement or judgment.
We are to love just as we are loved with grace and mercy.

Is there someone who needs you to love them?
Have you asked the Lord to show you where you are needed?

Psalm 94:18 akj

ps94(4)

When we begin to have doubts about God let us remember the times
He opened or closed a door, 
sent someone to comfort us,
answered a prayer, healed a hurt, when He protected us,
kept what we wanted 
out of reach and gave us what we needed,
and all the times He gathered us to Himself and forgave our sins.
He is a merciful God who is never far away.

What causes you to doubt? 
What do you do to erase the doubts?

Proverbs 24:10 msg

prov24(3)

There will always be problems in this life, 
how we handle them depends on how strong we are.
Whatever the difficulties we will be calm and confident in our ability 
to handle them if we exercise our muscles daily.
We may find ourselves under pressure in an emergency or crisis;
  how we respond will depend on how resilient and strong we are.
.The time to build strength is before it is needed.

Do you exercise all your muscles, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual?

Lamentations 3:25-26 niv

lam3(2)

The Lord wants us to look for Him in our lives.
He wants us to know our hope is not in vain.
He wants to hear from us and when we don’t have words
to express ourselves He is listening to the quiet sighs of our hearts.

Do you have times when you sit quietly in His presence?
