Daily Devotional from Psalms
|My understanding of God's constancy in His love encourages me to return His love by living a life which would bring honor to Him. I want to become a woman of excellence not because I have to perform, but because I choose to please God. ~ Cynthia Heald

We learn the most through hard times
when our faith is put to test...
when answers don't come easy
and our souls can find no rest.
We can find the strength inside us
that comes from God alone...
or we can give into depression
and lose all the faith we've known.
Life isn't always easy
nor was it ever meant to be...
We must rely on God's deliverance
when we face adversity.
He'll grow us through the trials
and we'll thank Him in the end...
for every ounce of heartache
renews our faith in Him.

Help us to spread your fragrance everywhere we go.
Flood our souls with Your spirit and life.
Penetrate and possess our whole being so utterly
that our lives may only be a radiance of Yours.
Shine through us
and be so in us
that every soul we come in contact with
may feel your presence in our soul.
Let them look up and see no longer us but only Jesus
~ Mother Teresa, Words to Love By

From the book Hope for Each Day by Billy Graham:
Pray About Your Problems.
Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything.
What do you do when you have a problem? Do you worry? Most of us do. But does worrying solve the problem? No, it does not. Then if worry doesn't solve the problem, why worry? The Bible's account about Hezekiah gives us an idea for problem solving: "Hezekiah received the letter from the hand of the messengers, and read it; and Hezekiah went up to the house of the Lord, and spread it before the Lord. Then Hezekiah prayed before the Lord" (2 Kings 19:14-15).
Instead of turning to God as a first resource, we so often turn to Him as a last resort. Follow Hezekiah's formula. Turn to God first with your problems, for only He is capable of handling them in a way that will be in your best interest -- and according to His perfect will.
