words

Last night I was over at a friends, watching the bachelor ... it was my first time this season - but her husband is out of town and that is the perfect show to watch with girls. ANYWAY, we were all set up with our popcorn and diet cokes. Her two little ones had gone to bed, then we hear this faint little voice. Her son was reading a book to himself and we could hear him on the monitor. Then we hear this faint little song ...
"Jesus loves me this I know, for the bible tells me so"
Children have no problem accepting the love the Father has for us, this is what we need to speak to ourselves everyday - Jesus LOVES US!

from joel today ...
Call Things as Though They Are
Today's Scripture
"…the God who gives life to the dead and calls things that are not as though they were" (Romans 4:17, NIV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Your Words have creative power. Just as God calls things that are not as though they were, we should also declare what we want to see in our lives. In other words, you may have days when you don't feel well, but don't go around saying, "Ah, my back has been hurting me. I'm getting so old. I don't think I'm ever going to get better."When you speak like that, you are speaking defeat into your future. Instead, turn it around. Declare a report of victory by saying, "I may not feel up to par, but I know it's only temporary. God is restoring health unto me. I'm getting stronger, healthier, and feeling younger. My best days are still up ahead."Remember, you're going to get what you call in to your life. You have creative power in your words, and you are prophesying your future. Declare what God says about you–that you are blessed and you cannot be cursed, that you are above only and not beneath! As you call things that are not as though they were, you will see God's wonderful promises and blessing come to pass in every area of your life!
A Prayer for Today
Heavenly Father, thank You for entrusting me with Your power. I choose to declare words of life and victory. Help me, Holy Spirit, to use my words to move forward in victory the way You have planned. In Jesus' Name. Amen.

We are strong in His word. The power of death and life is in the tongue. Keep boldly speaking Gods love, power and truth over your life.

Today, 9:45, I am heading to the Doctor. Please pray for peace entering the building, sitting in the waiting room and meeting with my doctor. I will relish the knowing that Jesus Loves me ... and my LAMININ created by God will hold me together.

GRACE AND PEACE!
