Ten Daily Reminders

1. Show gratitude daily. Look at the world with wide-eyed wonder and appreciate the places where goodness and grace abound. Bundle words of thanks as a gift to those you love. Offer a song of praise in both the easy and hard places. (Colossians 3:17)

2. Be honest. Know your weaknesses and trust God to bridge the gaps. Recognize your gifts and talents, not your own ability. Be eager to receive in love when truth is spoken to you. Wrap the feedback you give in tenderness. (Colossians 3:9-10)

3. Take responsibility. Look in the mirror, not out of the window when things go wrong. Be quick to apologize and seek forgiveness. Own what do and do well what you own. (2 Peter 1:10)

4. Choose contentment. Focus on where you are right now and be anxious for nothing. Carry the burden for those that have less and celebrate those that have more. Accept that the season you are in as exactly where God wants you to be. (Philippians 4:6-7)

5. Affirm others. Share the good you see in others that they may not be able to see in themselves. Value people and let them know they matter to you. Create new possibilities and always believe the best. (Philippians 1:3,27)

6. Move in quiet confidence. Embrace the mercy and grace allotted for you each day, and then give them both away. Know there’s not a mistake you can make that God hasn’t already covered. Remember that same grace covers your neighbor, too.(Isaiah 43:2)

7. Be forgiving. Forgive offenses as soon as they happen. Expect nothing and give everything, no matter how much the world thinks you’ve been wronged. Strive to understand before you’re understood. (Colossians 3:13)

8. Live to serve. Be quick to help, even when it’s not convenient. Offer your best to improve someone’s ideas or situation and ‘gift’ him or her the credit for it. Make following first be the way you lead. Do everything you do all for Him. (Colossians 3:23,24)

9. Be teachable. Keep your heart wide open. Admit what you don’t know and allow people to pour into your life. Let all you learn bless and be a blessing to others. (Jeremiah 33:3)

10. Extend kindness. Approach each day with gentleness and generousity. Find unexpected ways to surprise and bring delight. Give in secret what only you can give. (Romans 12:10,11,13)

Deserto

Eu estava aqui refletindo e resolvi escrever algumas palavras aqui. Os últimos dias têm sido realmente difíceis, mas as misericórdias do Senhor têm me sustentado. Vejo a mão de Deus na minha vida em cada momento de dificuldade. Talvez você esteja assim como eu: passando pelo deserto e por dias de lágrimas abundantes, fraquejando em meio a tudo. Mas é exatamente nesses momentos que Deus pode agir nas nossas vidas, é exatamente nas nossas fraquezas que Ele pode ser forte por nós. Deixe Deus vencer por você, permita que Ele seja a sua força e que Ele te defenda em suas batalhas.

Deus me deu essa palavra e eu acredito que não foi apenas pra mim, por isso preciso compartilhar:

Mas ele me disse: “Minha graça é suficiente para você, pois o meu poder se aperfeiçoa na fraqueza”. Portanto, eu me gloriarei ainda mais alegremente em minhas fraquezas, para que o poder de Cristo repouse em mim.
Por isso, por amor de Cristo, regozijo-me nas fraquezas, nos insultos, nas necessidades, nas perseguições, nas angústias. Pois, quando sou fraco é que sou forte. 
(2 Coríntios 12:9-10)

Lamentações 3:22-26 / Lamentations 3:22-26

Graças ao grande amor do Senhor é que não somos consumidos, pois as suas misericórdias são inesgotáveis. Renovam-se cada manhã; grande é a tua fidelidade! Digo a mim mesmo: A minha porção é o Senhor; portanto, nele porei a minha esperança. O Senhor é bom para com aqueles cuja esperança está nele, para com aqueles que o buscam; é bom esperar tranqüilo pela salvação do Senhor. 

Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.” The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD. 

spiritualinspiration:

“…Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning” (Psalm 30:5, NKJV)
When you wake up each morning, God sends you a special delivery of joy. It’s like it comes knocking at the door of your heart every day. The problem is that some people never answer the door. It’s right there, month after month, year after year saying, “Come on! Let me in! You can be happy! You can cheer up! You can enjoy your life!” The way to answer the door is to get up and choose an attitude of faith and expectancy by declaring that “today is going to be a good day.” When you start the day like that, you are choosing to receive the gift of joy that God sent to you.
Today, make up your mind to answer the door to joy! Get up every morning and say, “Father, thank You for another beautiful day. I’m going to be happy. I’m going to enjoy this day because You are faithful. I’m going to brighten someone else’s life. I am choosing to receive Your gift of joy and passing it on to others because I love You, and I know that I am called for Your purposes!”
