Psalm 118:24 “This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.” 

Philippians 4:4-9

“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.  Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.”

John 3:16-21

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.”

Hey there!!! I thank you personally for choosing to read this right now, and don’t stop!! You may be reading this right now while you’re stressed, filled with anxiety, depressed, or whatever is bugging you. Or on the other hand, you might have received joy for the first time in a while, from a friend, family member, or a random person that oddly stepped into your day today. I would like to pray for each and every one of you right now, with a prayer of hope, strength, and courage to tackle life’s problems and obstacles. Because no one is perfect, everyone is struggling with one thing, but there is a God that is perfect. His name is Jesus, and He loves you more than you could ever imagine. He paid the ultimate price for our own mistakes and He has set us free into a life with Him!!! Accept that today and let God change your life in amazing ways through prayer, reading the Bible, or connecting with other positive influences that point their life to God. So with that let’s pray.

Dear God, thank you Lord so much for this day that you have made, we will rejoice and be glad in it. Thank you God for your never ending love for us, even though we mess up. God, I’m not perfect. I struggle with my own ways of life. And with these struggles I give them to you. Help me God to trust you with my life, and I pray that you can use me in wonderful ways as I live my life for you. Even though life is tough right now, God you are a God that heals, restores, and makes a way when there seems to be no way. You are a powerful and mighty God. I ask you God to forgive my sins and stir a thirst for the Bible and to talk to you in prayer when life is tough and when life is good. You God are my provider and you give me hope. Thank you God for everything. I pray, ask, and thank you for all these things in your amazing and powerful name, in Jesus’ name Amen!
