Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

eyes wide open

Numbers 6:24-26 (NLT) is often used as a blessing at the end of a church service. I will use it as a prayer for someone that I know is going through a difficult time. it is my prayer for you today.

‘May the Lord bless you
and protect you.
May the Lord smile on you
and be gracious to you.
May the Lord show you his favor
and give you his peace.’

May today find you noticing the blessings of God. Blessings are all around us. He is with us and He will make a way where there may seem to be no way. (Isaiah 43:19)

We don’t have to look far to see how gracious God is to us. His grace (getting what we don’t deserve) and His mercy (not getting what we deserve) are examples of His great love for us.

Favor and peace – Thank you God! He is working all things out for our good. (Romans 8:28) He is able to do more than we can even begin to imagine. (Eph 3:20) His grace is enough. (2 Cor 12:9)

Throughout the day stop, look up and thank Him for the big and the small things. It is also good for us to remember that He blesses us to be a blessing to others. (Gen 12:2) Let your light shine. Let them see Jesus in you. How about looking for ways to be generous.

May God bless you today and may we not forget that it is God.

let them see Jesus in you

My prayer for you today comes from Numbers 6:24-26 (NLT)

24 ‘May the Lord bless you

    and protect you.

25 May the Lord smile on you

    and be gracious to you.

26 May the Lord show you his favor

    and give you his peace.’

May today find you noticing the blessings of God. Blessings are all around us. He is with us and He will make a way where there may seem to be no way. (Isaiah 43:19)

God smiles. “For the Lord takes pleasure in his people;” (Psalm 149:4 ESV)

We don’t have to look far to see how gracious God is to us. His grace (getting what we don’t deserve) and His mercy (not getting what we deserve) are examples of His great love for us.

Favor and peace – Thank you God! He is working all things out for our good. (Romans 8:28) He is able to do more than we can even begin to imagine. (Eph 3:20) His grace is enough. (2 Cor 12:9)

May God bless you today and may we not forget that it is God. Throughout the day stop, look up and thank Him for the big and the small things. It is also good for us to remember that He blesses us to be a blessing to others. (Gen 12:2)

Let your light shine. Let them see Jesus in you.

Selah

saturday’s song

“Count your blessings – name them one by one. Count your blessings see what God has done…”

 

“Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And all that is within me, bless His holy name.
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget none of His benefits;” (Psalm 103:1-2)

 

David started out with praise. Then in verse 2 he reminds his soul (will, mind, emotions) to not forget all of God’s benefits. God has done great things!

Take a look at verse 12. When we come to Him with a repentant heart, look what happens. “As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us.”

How far is that? Well, when you are heading east, you will never see west. Yet, how often we continue to beat ourselves up over mistakes in the past. Accept the forgiveness that God offers.

“Depart from evil and do good.” Psalm 34:14

David ends the Psalm the same way he begins it with “Bless the Lord, O my soul!”

“….For He has done great things, He has done great things, He has done great things bless His holy name.”

 

Let’s follow David’s example and take some time today to give God praise for all that He has done, is doing and will do.

Counting my blessings,

til next time
