Good morning precious sisters!

I went rollerblading last night with Sam and mimi (my daughter and niece) the ones we prayed for to pass their driver's test. Thanks again sisters!

A little while ago I fell and really hurt myself. Now I blade fully padded but I'm really AFRAID…I can feel fear gripping me… so yesterday every time I felt like that I started praying:

Lord, you did not give me a spirit of fear…but of Faith. It did help. So let's keep quoting the Word in difficult situations:

verse for the day:

for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7

Lord, we thank you for our weaknesses…we thank you if it makes us feel broken because that is when we will seek you even more. Thank you Lord for the passage in Romans that Steph mentioned…Father…how do we get so far?
Lord, we ask you to bless Steph, in her family, in her job…and we ask that you protect every part of her, even the hair on her head. Thank You Father that you know all things. Lord, thank You that you have given us our hair as a covering. Thank You Lord that you will bless Steph and help her.Lord, you have put her in these delicate situations. Thank You that You will get her through them.

Lord, thank You that you gave Erika that lovely day with her family. Lord thank You for every encouragement you give us! Thank you that you will continue to help Erika with her back. Lord, we trust you

Father thank you for letting the girls pass. Thank you for your protection while they learn to drive…thank You Lord that there is only 3 days left of exams for Oli. Lord I trust you. Open Oli's eyes and let him use the gifts you gave him.

Father thank you for this beautiful day you have given us. Thank you for the Sunday school picnic! thank you Father!******************

Victory = series of right choices....

Nothing tastes as good as Peace feels!

God bless you and yours!

for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7

That is a great one....I am glad God laid it on your heart today.
We don't have to hear....He means for us to have POWER and LOVE and.SELF CONTROL

Obviously through HIM, though ME I can attain none of the above, as hard as I try.

I loved your prayer. Really touched me Kris... How you thanked him for everthing. Because its true, while he wants us to come to his feet and ask away, He already knows, we CAN thank HIM for the trials even as we ask for help.
Great reminder to me.

GOd, point Oli in the right direction, Thank you for this precious child, may he recognize the talents you gave Him and use them!!!!!!!!
Thank you for speaking your word to Kris as she was rollerbladding.
Hididng your word in our hearts is so important, that we may draw on them at all times!

1 Corinthians 10:13-14 has been on my mind as I battle with SELF CONTROL----
NO temptation has seized you except what is common to man (MY issues with FOOD, WINE) And GOd is Faithful, he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will ALWAYS provide a way out so you can STAND UP UNDER IT.

-I actually have this written on an free page in the front of my bible-I wrote it there when I was in high school?-

Yes God blesses us with SELF_CONTROL, but only through him. If I trust, and look to him for help I will always be able to resist temptation! WOW.
Now I know i am a sinner, I know i will still mess up, but I can always come HOME to him, ask forgiveness and keep moving. He always forgives.

THank you God for these promises you make to us. May we fully trust, and look to you in EVERYTHING....
--reminds me of Made to Crave too...------thanks for sharing about that book Kris!
