Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 6.7.17

Scripture

IMG_3533

John 16:7

Prayer

Father I know that You have a plan, You always do, and to question You or attempt to figure out Your way is pointless. So I will humbly follow and trust Your guidance.

Reflection

Jesus shared with His disciples the next steps. He gave them ample notice of what would come, what to expect, and how to conduct themselves if they truly desired a seat next to Him. Left behind is a guide for us to use, follow, model, and live by. We can either discard it and deal with things as they come or we can embrace it and prepare for anything and everything that can come our way—knowing that we are blessed and saved through Him. The hamster wheel life has to be tiring, why not choose a different path and see what riches life has in store for you.

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 6.6.17

Scripture


John 16:1

Prayer

Father please keep me from stumbling, and if I do stumble please catch me or soften my fall. Then give me the strength and courage to get back up and walk forward again. In Jesus’ name I humbly pray to You today and each day. Amen.

Reflection

Jesus explained to His disciples that all that He had shared up to that day, and that day in particular was to prepare them and to help them not stumble in their discipleship after His ascension.

We read and study these words so that we can learn how not to stumble. But if we don’t read and study then we’re bound to fall, and fall hard.

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 6.5.17

Scripture

IMG_3244

John 15:23-25

Prayer

Father there will always be disbelievers and haters. I’m grateful for my relationship with You and I’m grateful for the life that You have given me. I’m grateful for life’s lessons and for the people that You have placed in my life, even those who didn’t have the best intentions for me. I’ve learned a lot in this short time I’ve been here and I’m grateful for these experiences. I pray for many more sunrises, sunsets, cleansing breaths, laughs, and even moments when I shed tears. I look forward to what the future holds and my place in it. I want to do my part to help build Your Kingdom and reflect You as best as I can for as long as You allow. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Reflection

If you think you have issues with haters, consider what Jesus went through, and consider that now more than two thousand years after His ascension, there are people who still hate on Him. Sadly, people hated and hate Him for absolutely no reason. Can you say that? Now imagine God’s experience with the human race. There are millions who don’t believe in Him and millions who curse Him. Can you relate? Not even possible.

Now look at your life again. Alright, go ahead and laugh. You have it easy and you know it. Thank God for sparing you from the hate and foolishness.

Questions of the Day

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 6.2.17

Scripture

IMG_3242

John 15:13

Prayer

Father I’m grateful and will be eternally grateful for the sacrifices of Your Son, Jesus Christ, for in His obedience He gave His human life in order to reveal to the rest of Your children the eternal life that awaits us. He loved us but loved You more, and through that love I am here and this experience is priceless. Thank You for all that I have and all that I am, and most importantly, thank You for the gift of Your Son—my direct link to You! Praising You and Your gifts, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Reflection

Jesus loved us so much that He sacrificed what the vast majority of us are holding on for dear life. I can honestly tell you that I wouldn’t be so obedient and loving to sacrifice my life for millions of people I don’t know, and in a way that was so painful both physically and mentally. The denigration was horrific. The betrayal by His disciples was anticipated but still crippling. Watching people He healed spit upon Him, throw stones, and yell “crucify him” over and over—that had to cut deep. It only proves how strong, brave, obedient, great, and wondrous Jesus is and why He was chosen to be our Savior. He loves us. Show your love by being loving towards others, serve the least of God’s children fully and without question, and do whatever it takes to protect your heart and mind from the enemy’s attacks.

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 6.1.17

Scripture

IMG_3241

John 15:4

Prayer

Father I pray to remain nestled in Your arms and walking on the path that You created– that You had Jesus to leave footprints for me to follow. I don’t ever want to be separated from You. I never want to disappoint You. I never want to do anything that would celebrate the enemy and dishonor You. I am only me because of You. I can only be because of You. Protect me. Guide me. I love You Father. Faithfully Yours.

Reflection

The leaf, branch, and petal can not survive without being connected to it’s source. It doesn’t matter how much you water it, cascade light upon it, eventually it will wither and die. We are just like the leaf, branch, and petal. We need our Lord and Savior to be the Wayshower. We need our Heavenly Father, because He is our Source, He is our Creator and the only reason we breathe today. Don’t stray too far or you may find yourself plucked and disconnected from your lifeline.

Questions of the Day

2. What are your thoughts about today’s message?

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 5.31.17

Scripture

IMG_3240

John 15:2

Prayer

Father I hope to always produce fruit for you, even after I leave this level of existence. I understand that You must prune me so that I can bear more for You, so as I endure that process I will smile and praise You because I know what You are doing and how it benefits me and those I serve in honor of You. Thank You Father.

Reflection

We must be pruned to bear more fruit. The dead leaves and fruit must be removed. If not, our entire tree risks dying.

As we grow we are strengthened by God’s support. He is the foundation, the soil, the water, and the sun that helps fuel us.

The pruning process can hurt, sometimes it can feel unbearable, but know that it is short-lived and the recovery will set you up for a great harvest. So hold on tight and know that it’s worth it in the end. If God believed that you couldn’t handle this or weren’t built for this, then He wouldn’t subject you to it!

Questions of the Day

1. What would you like to add to today’s prayer and/or reflection?

2. What are your thoughts about today’s message?

4. What cares, worries, and fears are you ready to turn over to God?

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 5.30.17

Scripture

IMG_3243

John 14:1

Prayer

Each day I trust. I won’t stop now Father. Thank You for always being here for me, even when I do and foolish things, and disobey You. Hold me Father. Please protect me. You already know what I’m facing and what lies ahead. Prepare me Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Reflection

God already knows what we fear most, what is bothering us, who is attacking us, and where we are strongest and weakest. So turn to God, our Creator and Supplier, and do so in the name of Jesus—as a believer and follower in His ministry and the sacrifices that He made for all of us. If you say you believe, then show it through your faith in the smallest and never relinquish hope for fear.

Either you trust in God and Jesus or you don’t.

Questions of the Day
