Reminders of Grace

Hello Friends~
Sometimes we just need a really aptly spoken word of truth. Pricilla Shirer's book The Resolution for Women has a great list of reminders taken from scripture to help us keep our eye on the prize in the midst of our crazy days. What is so cool is that she rewords them so that you and I may read God's truth in the first person. I hope these breathed-of-God words bring life to your weary soul today. If you are feeling overwhelmed or defeated please hear that you are so loved. You are loved outside of circumstance. If it is dark and cold in your soul today, let Love bring back the warmth with His kindness and His grace. Today I am praying for my hurting and overwhelmed sisters, you are not alone friends!

I walk by faith and not by sight. (2 Corinthians 5:7)

The Lord is on my side. I will not fear what man can do to me. (Psalm 118:6)

I have the mind of Christ; therefore I act in a way that is consistent with His actions. (1 Corinthians 2:16)

I will be hospitable without complaint. (1 Peter 4:9)

I will not use my tongue to speak cursings, but rather I will speak life-giving blessings to everyone I meet in every situation I face. (James 3:8-10)

The Spirit indwells me; therefore I am the temple of the living God. (2 Corinthians 6:16)

I am faithful over a few things, and I will be made ruler over many. (Matthew 25:23)

I humbly submit to God, and I actively resist the work of the devil, knowing he must flee from me. (James 4:7)
