What was the last thing you said to one of your loved ones? Are you okay if that is the last thing they ever hear you speak? We aren’t guaranteed tomorrow. Speak life today beloved one.
“You have minds like a snake pit! How do you suppose what you say is worth anything when you are so foul-minded? It’s your heart, not the dictionary, that gives meaning to your words. A good person produces good deeds and words season after season. An evil person is a blight on the orchard. Let me tell you something: Every one of these careless words is going to come back to haunt you. There will be a time of Reckoning. Words are powerful; take them seriously. Words can be your salvation. Words can also be your damnation.” (Words of Jesus, Matthew 12:34-37 The Message)
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to You, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. Create in me a clean heart O God, and renew a loyal spirit within me. Amen.
(Psalm 19:14; Psalm 51:10)
It is always good to pray The Word of God over your heart and life.
It is always good to pray before you speak too. Pray, pray, pray, wait, wait, wait…then speak life. Life giving words can be words of correction too, spoken in love from a heart that desires only the best for the person they are spoken to.
“It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.” (Words of Jesus, John 6:63)
Creative clutter can create a beautiful vision for the eyes to behold. Often us creative souls battle cluttered minds. Help, Lord! Clear the clutter Lord so I can hear You clearly and attend to the call you created me for.

You will keep in perfect peace those who trust in You and whose thoughts remain fixed on You. (Isaiah 26:3)

Have a happy, hopeful, joyful and peaceful New Year!
A Prayer for More in 2016:
Thank You, Lord, for giving us more power, passion, and purpose for living through the presence of Your Holy Spirit overflowing within us. We need You more than ever before in 2016. Amen.
If Jesus had the joy of the Holy Spirit, those of us who are following Him should be filled with it too. He even endured the cross for the “joy” set before Him. Follow Jesus and be filled with joy. Heaven awaits us. Be joyful!
It’s not the happy people who are thankful; it’s the thankful people who are happy😀! Even in Jesus’ day the thankful were the minority – only one of the ten lepers returned to say thanks for being healed (Luke 17). BE THAT THANKFUL ONE TODAY! Be thankful happy one! #HappyThanksgiving
Peace is not the absence of pressure, pain, and problems; it is the presence of Jesus calming our minds & hearts in the midst of them.
When God opens a door to use you in ministry, adversity should be expected.
For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries. 1 Corinthians 16:9 (NKJV)
