Thought to share: Choose your words carefully. Speak life. Choose to call out the gold in others. Draw attention to their strengths. Put a spotlight on what they do well. Choose to look at their good qualities. Words that encourage and support bring refreshing and healing. And when you speak life, you look most like ME.

Proverbs 18:21(TPT) Your words are so powerful that they will kill or give life, and the talkative person will reap the consequences.

Proverbs 12:18 (TLB) Some people like to make cutting remarks, but the words of the wise soothe and heal.

Colossians 4:6 (Msg)Be gracious in your speech. The goal is to bring out the best in others in a conversation, not put them down, not cut them out.

Ephesians 4:29 (TPT) And never let ugly or hateful words come from your mouth, but instead let your words become beautiful gifts that encourage others; do this by speaking words of grace to help them.

Thought to share: Don’t fall for the line that you must live in go-go-go mode. A busy life does not equate a fulfilled life, it only creates a life of exhaustion and weariness. Instead of filling your life with activity, fill your life with ME. Fill every aspect of your being with MY Presence. And when your life is full of ME, you will know contentment and satisfaction without exhaustion and weariness.

Ecclesiastes 4:6 (NASB) One hand full of rest is better than two fists full of labor and striving after wind.

Psalm 63:1-4 (TPT) O God of my life, I’m lovesick for You in this weary wilderness. I thirst with the deepest longings to love You more, with cravings in my heart that can’t be described. Such yearning grips my soul for You, my God! I’m energized every time I enter Your heavenly sanctuary to seek more of Your power and drink in more of Your glory.
For Your tender mercies mean more to me than life itself. How I love and praise you, God!
Daily I will worship You passionately and with all my heart. My arms will wave to you like banners of praise.

Matthew 5:6 (NASB) Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.

Thought to share: I invite you to come live in ME. To make ME your home. To live, move and have your being from within ME.  I offer you more than just a place of escape, or a place to hide. I give you a place to reside. A place of habitation. A residence fully supplied with everything you need. And, when you live in ME, you will find rest. You will find refuge and safety. You will have shelter, protection and peace.

Acts 17:28 (Amp)  For in Him we live and move and exist [that is, in Him we actually have our being], as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His children.’

Psalm 91 (NLT) Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.  This I declare about the LORDHe alone is my refuge, my place of safety; He is my God, and I trust Him. For He will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with His feathers. He will shelter you with His wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.  Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,  nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you. Just open your eyes, and see how the wicked are punished.  If you make the LORD your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter,  no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home.  For He will order His angels to protect you wherever you go. They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone. You will trample upon lions and cobras;  you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet! The LORD says, “I will rescue those who love Me. I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on Me, I will answer;  I will be with them in trouble.  I will rescue and honor them.  I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.”

Thought to share: When MY children approach ME, I always welcome them. I always listen to every word they say. And I always respond to their prayers. But, it will always be in MY time and in MY way. It will always be according to MY will – MY perfect design for your life. So ask ME for anything and everything. Seek MY heart on the matter. And knock down any obstacles in your path with Truth. You will always receive. Always find. Always have the door opened for you.

Hebrews 4:16 (NLT) So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.

1John 5:14-15  (NLT) And we are confident that He hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases Him. And since we know He hears us when we make our requests, we also know that He will give us what we ask for.

Matthew 7:7-8 (NLT) Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.
