Your Life Is Blessed When -
Your life is blessed when -
Peace is in your spirit,
Perception is in your decisions,
Patience is in your trials,
Purpose is in your work,
Purity is in your character
Praise is in your soul,
Power is in your witness,
Passion is in your calling,
Prayer is in your heart.

From DaySpring Devotions

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.

“Like branches on a tree we grow in different directions,
      yet our roots remain as one.
           Each of our lives will always be a special part of the other.”

I am the vine; you are the branches.
       Whoever abides in me and I in him,
          he it is that bears much fruit,
for apart from me you can do nothing. (Jesus)

“Prayer reminds me that I am not in control
     but it keeps me close to the One that is.”
Anonymous

Speaking the truth in love, we will grow in every way
   and be more like Christ, the head of the body.
     Christ holds it together and under his control
         all of its parts work perfectly,
             as it grows and becomes strong because of love.
Ephesians 4:15-16

BE THANKFUL
Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don't know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn. 


Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.


Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes. They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you're tired and weary,
because it means you've made a difference. 





It's easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks.
 
Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.
