In all things…”FROG”

My friend’s daughter and I have a special thing that we call ourselves…

We are “FROG SISTERS”. Not because we look like frogs, and not because we like frogs but, because of what FROG stands for…

F-ully

R-ely

O-n

G-od

In all things the two of us remind each other to do just that.

When life throws the sucker punch, and it often does. You also need to trust God, trust the truth of His word, and remember that He is sovereign in all things.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

Today take a moment to dig into the word of God and read these two scriptures: Psalm 9:9 and Psalm 18:2 . Mark them in your bible as a reminder that you can Fully Rely On God. You can also simply click on the two scriptures and see what they say.

Have a “Simply Blessed” day and in all things FROG

Keep Your Eyes on Him

I hope that your day is off to a fantastic start. I pray that in all you do keep your eyes, mind, and heart on the Lord. You can count on Him to go before you through the valleys and to the mountain top moments. You just need to stay focused on Him. Proverbs 4:25-27 is the perfect reminder of this…

“Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you. Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways. Do not turn to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil.”

Just like we keep our eyes on the road when we drive, we also need to keep our eyes on God for direction.

Today my payer is this.

Father God, Today I pray that you will remove the distractions from in front of us so that all we see is you. Guide us and keep us from evil. Bring us from glory to glory. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Change Your Perspective.

I love to take pictures of my daisies.

While photographing them, I felt drawn to look at some the daisies from another angle. The simple beauty of the daisies stretching towards the setting sun spoke to my heart. The word “perspective” rolled around in my head as I looked at the picture I had taken.

Perspective…what you see depends not only on what you look at, but also, on where you look from. -Author unknown.

Sometimes we need to change our perspective to see things more clearly. To change your perspective…”set your mind on things above and not on things that are on earth” Colossians 3:2. In other-words, set your eyes on God.

If you find yourself looking at things through the eyes of the world change your perspective and look at things through God‘s eyes.

Father God, I pray that you would give each one of us a new perspective where it is needed.  Help us to see things as you see them.  Help us to see the beauty in the hardest trials. Father, help us to always keep our eyes and our minds focused on you, not on what the world wants us to see. In the name of Jesus, Amen. 

Have a “Simply Blessed” day.

Do Not Be Ashamed

Sunset over Priest Lake

Today my word for you is simply…”Be a light”. Do not be ashamed of who you are in Christ. Let your light shine for all to see because that light has the ability to guide others out of the darkness. Matthew 5:14-16 is the perfect verse for when it comes to being a light. Today, I want to share it with you in the message translation and I hope you like it…

“Here’s another way to put it: you’re here to be a light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a blanket, do you? I’m putting you on the light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand-shine! Keep open house;  be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, your prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven”. Matthew 5:14-16 (The Message)

I hope that you are never ashamed or afraid to let your light shine for Jesus. Always be a beacon of hope for those in the dark.
