>Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer and Reflection for 8.30.10

>You will keep Him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. Isaiah 26:3

Pray
Father, Thank You for peace today. Not any peace, but perfect peace that only You can provide. I receive it as a comforting blanket for my heart, my mind, my spirit and my soul.

I choose to focus on Your word today and not my fears. Rid me of doubts about others You have placed in my life. Rid me of self-doubt that haunts me and hinders my growth. Direct my steps, guide and guard me with Your peace Father. In Your son Jesus’ name Amen.

Reflection
Do what God wants and receive all the blessings He has waiting for you. Welcome the peace within. Breathe in the simplicity of life as He has created it. Submit yourself to Him and the chaos you have and are sinking in will cease to exist.

Who wants to walk with me?

Love you all,

Natasha

>For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. 

No man hath seen God at any time…
St. John 1:17-18

Prayer
Having faith in You Father do I believe in Your omnipresence, omnipotence, and omniscience. Never seeing You only feeling Your constant care and guidance, do I pray for continued faith that no matter what trials that I may face now or in the future, that You always show me even in small ways that through Your truth and grace that all is well and will be well. Amen. 

Reflection
God sent Moses and Jesus to deliver the foundation for our livelihood, survival, and growth of His kingdom. He sent many men and women to help remind us of His greatness and the many ways that our heavenly Father protects and guides us. 

We have the laws; we are equipped to seek, find, and know the Truth; and be filled with and reflect His grace. Are we doing our part as His stewards? Think about it. 

Love,

Natasha

>From the fullness of His grace we have all received one blessing after
another.
John 1:16

Pray
Father, I choose to receive Your grace today, as You empower, guide and
teach me. I release my guilt and condemnation, and receive Your love and
forgiveness. Wash me clean and warm my heart that I may guiltlessly open
my arms to receive Your blessings for me. Amen.

Reflection
God favored me, in spite of my enemies. Our blessings keep coming in and
as we free ourselves from guilt and shame, and realize that God has
ALREADY forgiven us for our sins then we will clearly see the numerous
blessings flowing in.

If we spend our time self-inflicting pain and punishing ourselves;
putting the stakes in our hands and feet, whipping ourselves…we
overlook the gifts God has for us. Stop thinking you know God’s Mind and
focus on loving Him and doing good towards His children and yourself.

Love you all,

Natasha

>Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer and Reflection for 8.26.10

>For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
St. Luke 6:43

Prayer
Father You know the person You created, the person I am and the person I will be in the future. Let the fruit I bring forth help feed those in need and help grow Your Kingdom. Amen.

Reflection
Focus on being good by doing good. We may do something(s) that are “bad” but it doesn’t make us a bad person.

We must simply focus on remembering who and what we are as God’s children and work at constantly and consistently bettering ourselves.

Remember that the two most important commandments are to love God with all of our heart, mind, body and soul; and to love our neighbor as we love ourselves.

Love you all,

Natasha

>

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. 

The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. 

She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. 

She seeks wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. 

She is like the merchants’ ships; she brings her food from afar. 

Proverbs 31:10-14

Prayer
Father let Your sons grow worthy enough to find virtuous women and let your daughters grow to be these good, honorable women. Let us not rely on worldly views as to what’s acceptable or appropriate, but turn us to Your vision Lord. I humbly pray for You to cleanse me of my transgressions and uplift me to my proper place. Amen

Reflection
Today I picked up my Bible and said “wherever it opens and my eyes are drawn to, I will do today’s message”. Amazing how God is always working on and through us. But we must be open and honest to grow. 

Love,

Natasha

>Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer and Reflection for 8.22.10

>And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.

And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.

II Kings 6:16-17

Pray
Father, open my eyes when I don’t see; when fear, doubt, pride, ego and anything not of You clouds my thinking where I see what I think I see.

When I think I’m outnumbered like the Syrian army and Elisha prayed for their eyes to be opened, show me Lord what I’m supposed to see about every person and every situation.

Humbly I say thank You in advance for this vision. Amen.

Reflection
Elisha could see God’s protection, plan, and path; but Elisha’s servant and the Syrian army were blind to the reality. Are you seeing the big picture and all the details? Ask God!

Love,

Natasha

>And Elisha sent a messenger to him saying, Go and wash in Jordan seven times, and your flesh will return to you, and you will be clean….

But Naaman was angry and went away…

And his servants came and said to him, My father, if the prophet had bid you do some great thing, would you have not done it? How much rather then, when he says to you, Wash, and be clean?

Then he went down, and dipped himself seven times…and his flesh came again like the flesh of a little child, and he was clean.
II Kings 5:10,11,13,14

Prayer
Father, cleanse me from my inflictions. Open my mind, eyes and heart that whatever messenger You send to deliver me that I am receptive to them. Amen.

Reflection
Pray to the Lord for openness to take in all messages as loving and guiding; rather than be closed and defensive- missing out on your blessings. Just because you don’t understand doesn’t mean it’s the wrong message.

Love,

Natasha
