Story of the day: God is ready to restore you
“Christians have every reason to be optimistic about life. As Billy Graham observed, “Christ can put a spring in your step and a thrill in your heart. Optimism and cheerfulness are products of knowing Christ.” But sometimes, when we are tired or frustrated, optimism and cheerfulness seem like distant promises. They are not. Thankfully, our God stands ready to restore us.
Today, accept the new spirit that God seeks to infuse into your heart. Think optimistically about yourself, your friends, your family, your place of employment, and your world. Rejoice in this glorious day that the Lord has given you, and share your optimism with your family, your friends, and your co-workers. Your enthusiasm will be contagious. And your words will bring healing and comfort to a world that needs both.” (Family Christian Press)
Quote of the day: Warren Wiersbe
“With the peace of God to guard us and the God of peace to guide us–why worry?”
Bible verse of the day: Ezekiel 36:26a
“I will give you a new heart and put anew spirit within you;”
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank You for creating me to be a cheerful person. Father, I do know at times when I get frustrated or really tired that the part of me that wants to remain cheerful can become somewhat difficult. I ask that during these times that I can stop and see the blessings that I am missing out on when I give in to the flesh and react out of frustration or sleepiness and that You restore me in all that I do. I thank You for this day!
In Jesus Name I pray,
