Thought to share: Let go of the chaos swirling around in your mind and let ME be the center of your thoughts. I know it’s difficult when so many questions need answers and dozens of problems need solutions. But, if you’ll intentionally place ME in the center of your thoughts, the chaos will subside and you can hear MY voice in the stillness. You will hear ME whisper words of encouragement and comfort as I assure you I have everything you need.

Isaiah 26:3 (NLT) You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in You,  all whose thoughts are fixed on You!

Philippians 4:6-7 (TPT) Don’t be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude. Tell Him every detail of your life, then God’s wonderful peace that transcends human understanding, will make the answers known to you through Jesus Christ.

Thought to share: I know it seems “responsible” to tackle problem solving. That it’s the “right” thing to do to constantly look at your situation from every angle and determine how you should “fix” it. You feel like it’s your job to think through every scenario and calculate the risk before you can make a good decision. And, if you don’t – then who will? But the reality is, you overwhelm yourself when you do this. Because I AM the Alpha and Omega, I see the beginning from the end and have mapped out a plan that will lead you deeper into MY goodness. So give your mind a break. Look at ME and listen to MY heart. I’ll tell you exactly what you need to know every step of the way.

Revelation 22:13 (NLT) I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”

Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT) For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

Matthew 7:11 (TPT)  If you, imperfect as you are, know how to lovingly take care of your children and give them what’s best, how much more ready is your heavenly Father to give wonderful gifts to those who ask Him?

Thought to share: There is no equivalent to MY peace. Nothing can match it or stand against it. There isn’t a bottle that can take off the edge and calm your heart like MY peace can. No substance that can give you rest like MY peace does. No human who can silence anxiety like MY peace will. MY peace has the ability to cocoon you, sheltering you from the most violent of storms. It is not fragile or delicate, but is like an impenetrable fortress, keeping you secure. It runs deep and wide, swallowing your greatest fears and worries whole. And it is MY gift to you. You need only receive.

John 14:27 (NLT) I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid. ~ Jesus

Philippians 4:6-7 (NLT)  Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

Matthew 11:28-30 (NLT)  Then Jesus said, “Come to Me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you. Let Me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”

Thought to share: I know you think it’s a mess. It can’t be fixed. It’s useless. No life left in it. It’s beyond restoration. But nothing is impossible with ME. I make all things new. I can revive your desert places and breath life to those dead things. Invite ME in. Let ME breath life into it. Let ME renew your hope. And soon you’ll find beauty rising from the ashes.

Matthew 19:26 (NLT) Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.”

Psalm 107:35 (TPT) But He also can turn a barren wilderness into an oasis with water!
    He can make springs flow into desert lands

Isaiah 43:19 (Msg) Forget about what’s happened; don’t keep going over old history. Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new. It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it? There it is! I’m making a road through the desert,  rivers in the badlands.

Ezekiel 37:1-10 (NLT) The LORD took hold of me, and I was carried away by the Spirit of the LORD to a valley filled with bones. He led me all around among the bones that covered the valley floor. They were scattered everywhere across the ground and were completely dried out.  Then He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones become living people again?”

“O Sovereign Lord,” I replied, “you alone know the answer to that.”

Then He said to me, “Speak a prophetic message to these bones and say, ‘Dry bones, listen to the word of the Lord!  This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Look! I am going to put breath into you and make you live again!  I will put flesh and muscles on you and cover you with skin. I will put breath into you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the LORD.’”

So I spoke this message, just as He told me. Suddenly as I spoke, there was a rattling noise all across the valley. The bones of each body came together and attached themselves as complete skeletons. Then as I watched, muscles and flesh formed over the bones. Then skin formed to cover their bodies, but they still had no breath in them.

Then He said to me, “Speak a prophetic message to the winds, son of man. Speak a prophetic message and say, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Come, O breath, from the four winds! Breathe into these dead bodies so they may live again.’”

So I spoke the message as He commanded me, and breath came into their bodies. They all came to life and stood up on their feet—a great army.

Thought to share: Stop wondering if I will take care of you. If I will come through for you. If I will answer. I AM Faithful and True. I AM dependable and reliable. I never fail. I AM always on time. If I promised it, you will have it. Settle this reality in your heart and trust ME. I AM everything I’ve ever promised.

Revelation 19:11 (Amp) And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who was riding it is called Faithful and True (trustworthy, loyal, incorruptible, steady), and in righteousness He judges and wages war [on the rebellious nations]

2Timothy 2:13 (NLT) If we are unfaithful, He remains faithful,  for He cannot deny who He is.

Numbers 23:19 (NLT) God is not a man, so He does not lie. He is not human, so He does not change His mind. Has He ever spoken and failed to act? Has He ever promised and not carried it through?

Thought to share: I AM the fullness of everything your heart desires. I AM the One who completes you. The One who fulfills you. The One who satisfies you. Don’t waste your heart on things that can never bring contentment. That can never satisfy your deepest longings. Drink deeply from ME and find all all your heart longs for.

Isaiah 55:1-3 (NLT) Is anyone thirsty? Come and drink  even if you have no money! Come, take your choice of wine or milk— it’s all free! Why spend your money on food that does not give you strength? Why pay for food that does you no good? Listen to ME, and you will eat what is good. You will enjoy the finest food. Come to ME with your ears wide open. Listen, and you will find life.

John 4:14 (TPT)  but if anyone drinks the living water I give them, they will never thirst again and will be forever satisfied! For when you drink the water I give you it becomes a gushing fountain of the Holy Spirit, springing up and flooding you with endless life!

Revelation 21:6 (NASB) Then He said to me, “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost.

Thought to share: “doing” will never be a substitute for “being”. While I desire to partner with you and watch you experience the fullness of satisfaction that comes from fulfilling your purpose – it will never be a substitute for simply being with ME. Sitting in MY lap, listening to MY voice and hearing MY heart is at the heart of your purpose. You will never fully “do” until you fully “be”.

Psalm 46:10 (NLT) Be still, and know that I am God!

Psalm 16:11 (Amp) You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.

Psalm 27:8 (TPT) Lord, when you said to me, “Seek My face,” my inner being responded, “I’m seeking Your face with all my heart.”
