❤ Worship: If you'd like to play a song before you begin or while you read, may we recommend "Because He Lives" by Matt Maher. Why not try asking alexa, siri, or google to play it for you?!
💛 Daily Verse: All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son. He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding.
☆ Ephesians 1:3-8 NLT
💙 Let's Talk About It: WOW! You are chosen, friend! Did you know that?
I know many people who consider themselves as the ones who have chosen God, but the truth is, long before we chose Him, He chose us.
This passage is so rich and full of such amazing insight into how loved each of us are.
Can you imagine sacrificing your child for someone else? The thought alone helps many of us realize the great length God has gone to in order to help us realize how valuable we are to Him.
As Paul says He has truly "showered His kindness" upon us.
As if it can't get any better, we also see that He provides us with wisdom and understanding. Praise God!
If that doesn't get you excited today, friend, you may just want to check your pulse! YOU are BLESSED and HIGHLY FAVORED!
💜 Prayer: Dear God, there is NO ONE greater than you! You are amazing and I am so in love with you. Thank you for choosing me, for saving me, for sacrificing your Son for me, for your precious Holy Spirit, and for providing me with wisdom and understanding. Help me to shine your light today and everyday, Lord. May Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven, God. In Jesus name I pray, amen.
