Seek First the Kingdom of God- from Matthew 6 in the amplified version reads-
“But first and most importantly seek (aim at, strive after) His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right--the attitude and character of God], and all these things will be given to you also.”
Abba, I belong to you!
This is a picture from the day I baptized my son when he was a young boy - he's 16 now... I remember wanting him to know how much I loved him and was proud of him but more importantly to know that God his Father and Jesus loved him even more...I was thinking of the very first 7 syllable prayer I learned from a wise sage who is now with Jesus, David Lewis, who helped me see more clearly how Papa sees me and loves me unconditionally. He looks at us forever the way I am holding my son and looking at him in this picture. If you're like me, the troubles of this life often blind me to this truth. Say this prayer today and remember who you are in Christ and who you belong to...We are his sons and daughters! #dailyprayer#prayer#fathergod#abba#abbafather#sonship#thursdaythoughts
"There's an Anchor for my Soul" -some favorite lyrics from a Chris Tomlin song say "There's a peace I've come to know,Though my heart and flesh may fail...There's an anchor for my soul, I can say "It is well" and an old hymn The Solid Rock- with a verse saying- When darkness veils his lovely face I rest on His unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil-On Christ the solid rock I stand All other ground is sinking sand. Thought this was a pretty good prayer reminder to start the week no matter how stormy life may be or may get. Couldn't decide on which image I liked best - so pick your favorite.. #dailyprayer#dailybibleverse#prayer#god#jesus#anchor#soul#solidrock#hope#storm#itiswell#mondaymotivation

Your law is within my heart- Psalm 40:8
Vs 13- Come quickly, Lord, to help me (us)
Found in both Psalm 40 & 70 , normally I'll pray this verse as a prayer that is personal to me asking for God's help for some specific, immediate need in my life, but today they also have a duel purpose in light of last nights #scotus announcement and the ensuing civil discourse that divides our country presently.
There is a national focus on the #LAW but truly what We (I) need is to make the #greatestcommandment -Loving God-our #firstandforemost-aim and purpose in this life.
Psalm 1 says Blessed is the man -"whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night.”
