What does the Bible say about God’s many blessings in our lives:
When we are in need of help in any way, and feel lost, we can go to God, the root of all Good.
What does the Bible say about Roots?
Jeremiah 17:8 “He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.”
Psalm 1:3 “He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.”
Dear God, we thank you for this day, the day you made. We praise your precious name. You are so loving, kind, and merciful. Lord Jesus, you are my protector, teacher, and supplier of all things good in my life. We come before you today to ask to take us in your arms and help us keep our “roots planted by streams”. We claim your word in our lives. Thank you for allowing us to bear fruit that started from the roots you gave us. Amen 🙏🏼
Thank you for all the Amazing Grace, Mercy, and Blessings, that you have given to me. You are my Father, Jesus Christ, the one I look to in happiness and in pain… The King of Kings, lord of lords, I ask you please. For continued protection under your wings, for healing, restoration, and overflowing blessings,
Thank you Jesus, Amen 🙏🏼

Have you ever been looking for a sign, to give you hope in the darkest times?
A good friend of mine recently sent me three images of signs of hope we would look at when we needed it the most. It was butterflies, airplanes, and birds. Why did we see those things as signs of hope?
What does the Bible say?
2 Corinthians 5:17 *Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
A butterfly is first a caterpillar, then goes into a cocoon, and transforms when it comes out as a butterfly. It has become new. Hope is there. 🙏🏼

An airplane flys like a cloud and we can see them out our windows. So grand and amazing. Hope is here 🙏🏼
Matthew 6:26 *Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
A reminder that God takes care of the birds in the air and he will take care of us too. Hope is everywhere 🙏🏼
I haven’t spoken to this dear friend of mine in years, and just when I needed a word from God, she gave it to me.
Thank you Jesus for your great signs of Hope, letting us know that everything will work out in Jesus name, Amen 🙏🏼
Jeremiah 29:11 *For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
All I did was whisper a pray to God, and he delivered, again. Jesus Christ sent me all the protection, mercy, gifts, peace, love and joy that I asked for.
He said it in his word and so it was done.
Thank you Jesus for turning water into wine.
Thank you for your unconditional love and undying care. I accept you and need you in my life and I praise all the wonderful things that you have given us, and for the great ones on the way. In the name of Jesus Thank you, Amen.
