Daily Scriptures 10/23/13

Scripture: Psalm 45:1 My heart is overflowing with a good theme; I recite my composition concerning the King; My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. (NKJV)

Nugget: This psalm is a song of love; it also discusses the characteristics of a royal daughter of the King. One of the things that stood out for me regarding this verse is a “good theme”. How the writer’s heart was overflowing with this; it made me examine my thoughts & actions a bit.

Are my heart, mind, & soul overflowing with a good theme? How are these lining up with being a daughter of the King? Would my tongue speak songs of praise, even in the midst of challenges? I’ve had the chance recently to do some regrouping; this has helped a lot.

I’ve definitely faced some challenges & struggles recently, but I want to make sure I get back in line with God & have the “good theme” reappear in my life. No matter what you’re facing, seek God & that “good theme” He’s placed in you & around you. It’s important not to lose sight of this during times of difficulty.

Quote: “There is no instinct like that of the heart.” -Lord Byron

Happy Birthday To Me!!!



Happy Birthday to me! Thanking God for the blessing of not only another day, but another year. I’m praying that this next year be a great one for me! I’m looking forward to great things from my Father upstairs.

One of my goals this new year is to start a list of things I’ve been “wanting to do” & have been putting off doing (for some reason or another). Some of these items can be “simple” & some a little more than simple, but my goal is to complete the items on the list by my next birthday. I hope to share these experiences with you via my blog!

This is a milestone birthday for me & I feel that change is on the way. This will be a time of regrouping & refocusing for me. There are many things that I need to complete, collectively on a personal, professional, & most importantly, a spiritual, basis.

Thank you all for being a part of my journey & for taking the time to follow my blog, leave comments, & stop by! I hope to be back on the Daily Scriptures soon.

I'm truly blessed by my friends, family, & everything God has allowed to happen in my life.  Without Him, where would I be?

Until next time.

Blessings,

Daily Scriptures 10/2/13

Scripture: Proverbs 9:9 Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; Teach a just man, and he will increase in learning. (NKJV)

Nugget: I always say, “Every day I learn something new.” Every day is definitely an opportunity to do so, but do we utilize the opportunities available to us to do just that---accept instruction & increase in learning?

This scripture mentions giving instruction to a wise man; a person who’s willing to grow & to think outside-of-the-box. This is someone who’s open-minded, realizing he/she doesn’t know it all, but yet has the desire to grow beyond his/her current understanding.

Allow God to use your current situation/circumstance, as well as those around you, to show you the something new you didn’t know before; allow Him to enhance skills you’ve already developed to another level. Grow & increase in learning.

Daily Scriptures 10/1/13

Scriptures: Isaiah 49:1&5 1Listen to me, you islands; hear this, you distant nations: Before I was born the LORD called me; from my mother’s womb he has spoken my name. 5And now the LORD says— he who formed me in the womb to be his servant to bring Jacob back to him and gather Israel to himself, for I am honored in the eyes of the LORD and my God has been my strength (NIV)

Nugget: Sometimes I think we take for granted, or overlook, God’s hand in our lives; meaning, do we think back to how God has had his hands on us from the beginning? Way before we were a thought to our parents, we were a thought to God. Before we were born, God already knew what He had in store for us. If God knew what He was going to do back then, then He definitely knows His plans for us today.

God formed us to be His servants, a representation of Him, & we are His children; God will not let us down. God is our strength & He has called us according to His purpose. Don’t take for granted who God has formed you to be (& to become); take solace in Him, knowing the strength we have in Him.

Quote: “The purpose of our life is to pursue God. It is what we were created to do. God wants us to seek and long passionately in His presence. His presence is real and tangible. It will change our lives completely.” -From http://www.intercessorsarise.org/Intercessors_Arise/Pursuing_Gods_Presence.html
