Verse of the Day
For the Lord is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation. [NLT] Psalm 100:5
Today I am indeed thankful for all of the challenges, without which I would never have fully comprehended how much loved I and all that concerns me are loved by YOU Jesus! You have been faithful even in impending failure; You have been generous during times of lack; my Lord and my King, You have been true even when all that surrounded me was a multitude of deceivers. Where would I have been today, if it had not been for you? What would have become of me, of my story, of my legacy? But God, You made the difference, You are the difference, and today Lord, the least I could do, is to take the time out to say THANK YOU, for all you’ve done for me! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Jesus, for saving me, for loving me, for being ever so good and wonderful to me!
#Thankful. #Grateful. Thank you #Jesus.
Lord, it is good to praise you.
Most High God, it is good to make music to honor you.
It is good to sing every morning about your love.
It is good to sing every night about how faithful you are.
I sing about it to the music of the lyre that has ten strings.
I sing about it to the music of the harp.
Lord, you make me glad by what you have done.
I sing with joy about the works of your hands.
Lord, how great are the things you do!
How wise your thoughts are!
Here is something a man who isn’t wise doesn’t know.
Here is what a foolish person doesn’t understand.
[NIV] Psalm 92:1-6
Blessed are You Lord, Indeed you are most worthy of my praise. #Verseoftheday

The LORD is my strength, my shield from every danger. I trust in him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.[NLT] Psalm 28:7
Whatever happens, give thanks, because it is God’s will in Christ Jesus that you do this. [GWT] 1 Thessalonians 5:18 #Thankful #Thanksgiving #Grateful #Gratitude
Verse of the Day
Then Samuel took a rock and set it up between Mizpah and Shen. He named it Ebenezer [Rock of Help] and said, “Until now the LORD has helped us.” [GWT] 1 Samuel 7:12
I’m sure there have been some victories you’ve achieved in life, which you know if it had not been for the Lord’s help, you would most definitely not have achieved them. The Lord has always been there to help and guide you through life’s muddied journeys, and has kept you standing firmly too. Today Lord, I don’t have too many words to say, except to say thank you Lord for being my Ebenezer. Thank you Jesus for being my Rock of help! Thus far you have brought me, and I am convinced that you will lead me/us to an expected end, which only you can give. #SamuelChallenge #VerseoftheDay
As for God, His way is blameless; The word of the LORD is tried; He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him. Psalm 18:30 [NASB]
I woke up this morning with a list of a few things I was unhappy about. My first thought wasn’t “thank you Lord Jesus for another beautiful day” which was usually my response at the sight of day break, but instead, I woke up #tired, irritated, upset, unsettled as my mind ran through a list of things which had probably been etched in my mind of thinking just before I sank deep into sleep the night before. But as I sat here going through my list of testimonies “Overwhelming powerful, awesome, wonderful, excellent, beyond belief/imaginable things that God has done for me” I couldn’t help but realise God’s word, His promises to me have not only been certain/sure, but have been true, tried and tested. It beggars belief, that after everything, EVERYTHING God has done for me, I would sink so low to wake up being ungrateful. He has never failed before in my life, and He’s not going to start to fail now, He has never been unfaithful, – in fact to be truthful I have found Him to be constant, consistent and always on time. His love never changing, His favour has been so indescribable. And to top it all, His Words are not for me only but for you too, for everyone. Your day/life may not be as you wanted or planned it, but having #Jesus makes all the difference. Don’t just take my word for it, try Him yourself.
Thank you Lord Jesus for restoration! I have hidden His word in my heart – Can’t be having a repeat of this morning again 🙂
What if the LORD had not been on our side? [NLT] Psalm 124:1c
As we come to the cusp of 2013, looking back through 2013, without a shadow of a doubt, there has been some really low points, some high points and some steady days, but we made it through, and for this we are truly thankful. Thank God for helping and assisting us through the storms of life, for supporting and strengthening us when the journey became too challenging and overwhelming; for shielding and defending us in difficult circumstances. Indeed, if it had not been for Him, helping and showing us the way we should go, we probably would have been marooned and left for dead in some forsaken place. But thank God for God and for all He did for us in this 2013. #Counting down to the New Year! To 2014!
