Happy New Year Everyone, I pray that you all walk into this new year on a blessed path. Let it be filled with healing, safety, comfort, opportunities, love, peace, happiness, favor, mercies, protection, freedom, advancement, joy, great gifts, and all of the good things God, our Father has promised to us.
What does the Bible say about God’s many blessings in our lives:
Luke 2:11″For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Glory Halleluiah!
Isaiah 9:6-7 “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this”. Amen!
The Day After Christmas, we must remember that God became flesh to live among us, to feel, and experience all that we feel and do in this world, to be sacrificed, and to overcome the world.
John 16:33 “I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
1 John 5:4 “For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.”
Let us walk in faith, and remember that we are overcomers, in the name of Jesus.
Dear Lord, Thank you for all of your wonderful gifts. We praise you Jesus.
We come before you today, to ask for continued strength, and blessings on our paths in this world. Please lord, give us favor in all that we do. Thank you, in Jesus name Amen.
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?

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 🙏🏼

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. 🙏🏼
Isaiah 60:8 *Who are these that fly like a cloud, and like doves to their windows?
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.
