Scripture

IMG_D6F8ED7BC07F-1

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

1 Corinthians 13:7

Reflection

Love protects always, love trusts always, love hopes always, and love always perseveres. To be protected by man you must be a protector. To be trusted by man you must be trustworthy. For hope and perseverance to remain constant in your relationship you must believe in them, work daily and throughout to secure a confidence in hope and wanting more and better for your relationship; and you must be willing to do anything and everything cloaked in love to protect your relationship- never doing or saying anything that would bring harm and dishonor to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and His and our Heavenly Father-Mother God.

We must make a conscience effort throughout the day to think, speak, act, and be as God expects, envisions, and knows of us as His children. We must overcome our fears, temptations, doubt, pride, and ego. We must live for more than ourselves, and give more than we could ever imagine, and still realize that we have not done, given, expressed, or shared as much as Jesus, Moses, Joshua, Daniel, or others before us individually.

We must get past our perceived humanness and embrace, and demonstrate our spiritualness. How beautiful this world would be if we could only get past ourselves and focus on love, commitment, sacrifice, forgiveness, honesty, trust, kindness, and doing God’s work.

Smile. Your day is waiting for you. Who can you bless today?

Prayer

Father You are love, happiness, joy, kindness, care, hope, Spirit, Soul, Mind; You are all-in-all. Everything that is good is of You. Father in and through Your love I am always protected; I can trust in You and have faith that no harm will come to me of Your doing. In Your love I have hope; hope for a better life, a better experience, and better opportunities. In Your love I can and will persevere, thrive, and succeed.

Father thank You for the guardian angels You have placed around me throughout my years, and for those who will guide me along my path during my remaining years. I pray for the opportunity to see, experience, and demonstrate love in its purest form as You have shared with me. I want to share this love with generations yet born so that they may enter this world having faith in mankind, and in their ability to serve as honorable stewards in Your Kingdom.

Thank You Father for protecting me. Thank You Father from keeping those who would harm me through their fear, arrogance, carelessness, self-centeredness, and disobedience from doing so. Thank You for the wisdom and discernment to identify those people who are with me and those who are against me, those who love and respect me versus those who don’t; and that I might still love them all as Your son Jesus loves me.

In Your name I pray. Amen.

Love always,

Natasha

Natasha’s Daily Scripture, Prayer, and Reflection for 12.16.16

Scripture


1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Pray

Father, You know my weaknesses. You know the areas where I need to improve. You know the things that I do and say that are unloving. You also know my heart. Father touch my heart so that it doesn’t clinch and go cold in anger towards others, even when they are being unloving. If I can’t find it to be loving, then may I be motivated to lovingly walk away to clear my mind and be centered in Your love. Thank You Father. 

Reflection 

It’s plain and simple what love is and isn’t. We are either be loving or not. We are either in loving relationships or we’re not. We can change our ways, thoughts, actions, environments, and our circumstances. We can change who we associate with. Bottom line—we can change. It’s our choice.
