Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 10.2.15

Scripture

Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.

1 Peter 4:10 NIV

Pray
Father thank You for today. I hope to never take my gifts for granted. Touch my heart to always give back to others as You have given to me; never too busy to stop and help others; never too important. Let me always see that my cup runneth over so that I will never be empty. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Reflection
God has given us gifts; blessings to bless others—how are you using yours? Are you administering God’s grace or ‘checking a box’? Are you serving others or profiling for the cameras and press?

How are you using your gifts?

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 10.1.15

Scripture

I will be your God throughout your lifetime…
I made you, and I will care for you.
I will carry you along and save you.

Isaiah 46:4 NLT

Pray
Father thank you for today, for my life, and for all of the experiences that I have faced and still face. Thank you for the ups and downs, the joy and the heartache. All of it has shaped and molded me into who I am. I don’t like pain, but I understand that as Your clay, there will be times of discomfort. I will never stop believing in You, praying to You, and praising Your name. I love You Father!

Reflection
The universe is the largest space imaginable to humans, and even it is difficult for us to fully comprehend, since Earth is only in one of many galaxies. But wrap your mind around this fact— there is not a person, being, or force, near or far that love and cares for you more than God.

You may have an amazing relationship with one or both of your parents, but even if they would give their lives for you, their love still isn’t as deep and as long as God’s.

No one has as much faith and belief in you than God. No one has known you longer, and no one will ever know you as long as our Father-Mother.

Now look closely at yourself. You have been chosen, set apart and appointed by God. You have been made as you are, when you were, and positioned on your path—on purpose. No mistakes. No guesstimates. Not as a contingency plan.

What will you do in honor of the Love that made you?
