Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer and Reflection for 4.21.12 **Special Weekend Edition**

But now you also, put them all aside: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive speech from your mouth.

Do not lie to one another, since you laid aside the old self with its evil practices, and have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him- a renewal in which there is no distinction between Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave and freeman, but Christ is all, and in all.

So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience;

Colossians 3:8-12

Pray
Father thank You for another day of life here on Your beautiful planet. Today as other other days I face challenges, but today as some days, I am strengthened in the confidence that You are handling my battles for me. Knowing this, I have no reason to fear, no reason to be angry, bitter, or resentful. I do have a reason to rejoice and be grateful, and so today that is exactly what I’m going to do; rejoice and be a blessing to others as You have handsomely blessed me.

I have forgiven all who have trespassed against me. I hold no grudges, and have no bad words to say to or about them. I pray for them and pray that they seek the cleansing that it takes to heal them and make them whole in Your eyes.

I pray that they forgive themselves and forgive others, that they release themselves from their past, and bury their baggage deep in the woods to never be uncovered. I pray that You touch their hearts so that they find peace and never a reason to lie, cheat, manipulate, or be cold towards others. I release myself from their current negative web through love, praying that they release that web for Your love.

In Your name I pray. Amen.

Reflection
We must control our emotions, the words that come from our mouths, our thoughts, and our actions. We are the ruler of what we do or don’t do, no other human has that power. Let’s not even talk about hypnosis. That’s a whole other ball of wax and even then you have to give a person control!

You choose to hate or love. You choose to tell the truth or to tell lies, you choose to be loving or to be mean, to be dignified or not, you choose!

Free yourself from telling lies, from cheating in all relationships–even business–and watch the words that come from your mouth because they have the power to help or to harm.

Since there are many people who don’t seem to love themselves enough to follow the Golden Rule, then let me say this—speak to others and treat others the way you would want someone to speak to and treat your most beloved person.

There is no place in God’s Kingdom for chaos and conflict. Only Love, Joy, Kindness, Peace, and Happiness.

Have an amazing weekend!
