Thought to share: Don’t rush the process. Don’t hurry through the journey. If you hurry through this season, you’ll miss all I AM doing now.  And, I AM doing incredible things while you wait. I AM developing character in you. I AM revealing MY heart to you. I AM demonstrating MY faithfulness to you. I AM allowing you to experience MY goodness as you see the perfection of MY timing. Slow down. Relax. Enjoy. It makes the process so much better.

Psalm 27:14 (TPT) Here’s what I’ve learned through it all: Don’t give up; don’t be impatient; be entwined as one with the LORD. Be brave and courageous, and never lose hope. Yes, keep on waiting—for he will never disappoint you! 

Psalm 37:7 (NLT) Be still in the presence of the LORDand wait patiently for Him to act.
Don’t worry about evil people who prosper or fret about their wicked schemes.

Psalm 130:5 (Amp) I wait [patiently] for the LORD, my soul [expectantly] waits, And in His word do I hope.

Psalm 33:20 (Amp) We wait [expectantly] for the LORDHe is our help and our shield.

Thought to share: You endeavor to like difficult people. You’re striving to be agreeable. You’re working so hard at getting along with others. And you’re exhausted. Instead of trying to do something you cannot, let ME change your heart. Allow ME to fill you with compassion so that you see with MY eyes, hear with MY ears and feel with MY heart. When you are in sync with ME, you’ll find it’s much easier to love those difficult people in your life.

Psalm 51:10 (TPT) Create a new, clean heart within me. Fill me with pure thoughts and holy desires, ready to please You.

Ezekiel 11:19 (Amp)And I will give them one heart [a new heart], and put a new spirit within them. I will take from them the heart of stone, and will give them a heart of flesh [that is responsive to My touch],

Jeremiah 24:7 (Msg) And I’ll give them a heart to know Me. They’ll be My people and I’ll be their God, for they’ll have returned to Me with all their hearts.

Thought to share: Be encouraged! You lack nothing – you have everything! You have peace. You have joy. You have strength. You have victory. You have hope. You have all of these things and so much more because you have ME. You don’t have to wait for them. You don’t have to earn them. You don’t have to qualify for them.  In ME, they are yours in abundance. They belong to you. Choose to apply them.

Romans 8:37 (TPT) Yet even in the midst of all these things, we triumph over them all, for God has made us to be more than conquerors, and His demonstrated love is our glorious victory over everything!

John 16:33 (TPT) And everything I’ve taught you is so that the peace which is in Me will be in you and will give you great confidence as you rest in Me. For in this unbelieving world you will experience trouble and sorrows, but you must be courageous, for I have conquered the world!”

Matthew 12:21 (NLT) And His [Jesus] name shall be the hope of all the world.

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.”

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.
