"Brothers and sisters, fill your minds with whatever is good and true, whatever is pure, whatever is noble and right, whatever is lovely, whatever is honorable and admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things. Put them into practice, and God -who gives us peace- will be with you." (Philippians 4:8)

"Thanks for the Gift: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Philippians 4:13)

We must train our minds to think upon these positive and peaceful things. We must keep our minds protected, because the devil could take advantage of those vulnerable ones.

"The Lord is our Shepherd."

"The Lord is our Shepherd."

These inspirational words may help you find the way in your life.
When we feel weary or blue, or when we feel that the world is shutting on us, or everything goes wrong in whatever we do, or when we feel lonely and sad, please remember that the Lord is by your side at all times and in all circumstances. You are not alone, Jesus is the best friend that you may find in your life. Just call His name in prayers, and Jesus will come to your emotional rescue anywhere you may be, for God is everywhere. Put all your worries and troubles to God´s feet, and release yourself of all burdens. You don´t have to carry your own cross by yourself.

Your walking in this world will become lighter, if you begin to practice these spiritual exercises.
It is rewarding and refreshing to read the wisdom of Bible Verses, you´ll begin to feel that you become a brand new person. The Lord´s amazing grace will work on you for sure.
One of my favourite psalms is the number 23: "The Lord is our Shepherd." It says...

"The Lord is my Shepherd; I have everything I need. He lets me rest in fields of green grass and leads me to quiet pools of fresh water. He gives me new strength. He guides me in the right paths, as He promised. Even if I go through the deepest darkness, I shall not be afraid, Lord, for You are with me. Your shepherd´s rod and staff protect me. You prepare a banquet for me, where all my enemies can see me; You welcome me as an honored guest and fill my cup to the brim. I know that your goodness and love will be with me all my life; and Your house will be my home as long as I live."

Let us pray for a moment with our silent prayers, giving thanks to our dear Lord for the gift of life and for the many blessings He grants to us..

Dear Heavenly Father and Lord,

Thank You for this brand new day that You are giving to us, for being with us this day and for the many blessings You grant to us!! We are sorry, sweet Lord, that we have said, thought or done things that were not pleasing You. We ask You for forgiveness. Grant us Lord, Your strength and peace that pass all understanding, and only You and You alone can give.
Give us healings, where there is mental or physical illness. Give us a happy heart to show others our inner wealth. Inside our heart, it is only You, Lord, shining through like a glowing beam over a colorful rainbow. Please, Father, be with us in all circumstances, protect us. We love You and need You, Almighty Heavenly Father. The glory is all Yours. We trust You and believe in You, dear Lord Jesus Christ. You are our Savior, our fortress and our rock of salvation. Please, show us the way with the light of the Holy Spirit. Lord, give us a joyful heart, where there is hurting somehow. Grant us Your unconditional love, touch our hearts with Your loving arms and lead us into Eternity, sweet Lord, if that is Your will. God´s will be done in all circumstances. Your Heavenly love will embrace us until the end of time, as You promise.
Lord, make us an instrument of Your peace. Use us as Your messengers the way it pleases You, Father. As we now, come to You with our quiet personal prayers, we ask that You will listen to our needs, for You read our minds and know our hearts before we do.
Thank You, Lord, for being with us at all times and for the gift of life You grant to us!!
In Jesus´most precious and Holy Name, we pray. AMEN.

Thank you in advance for sharing with me today!!

Starry Dawn.
