Easter is about new life, resurrection and the triumph of good over evil. Let us continue doing love offerings and sacrifices for God as we live new lives in Christ!
"Then He opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. He told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things." Luke 24:45.
With the risen Lord comes humanity's hope for redemption. Happy easter everyone!
Psalm 118:24 - "This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."
Help me to receive your grace with joy and to be affirmed in God’s love and mercy for me. Help me to share it with others.
Let the resurrection joy lift us from loneliness and weakness and despair to strength and beauty and happiness.
"For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve." - 1 Corinthians 15:3-5
The resurrection of Jesus offers us a message of hope, love, and grace. Happy Easter!
Put God in the driver's seat of your life because anything under his control will Never be out of control.
Choosing to forgive is not something you have to feel like doing. You don't have to feel that the person deserves forgiveness.They don't even have to b sorry or acknwledge that they've done anything wrong. Forgiviness is something you do for yourself,and you do it four the Lord. You do it because it's the only way to heal..Forgiveness will allow us to heal and move on, whereas a lack of it will stop our growth and will eventually start to poison our soul. As we observe this Lenten season,let us forgive one another and love one another,even as God for Christ's sake has forgiven us! (Eph.4:32)
Merciful and ever living God, Creator of heaven and earth, the crucified body of your Son was laid in the tomb and rested on this holy day. Grant that we may await with him the dawning of the third day and rise in newness of life, through Jesus Christ our Redeemer. Amen.
That if you confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9) Happy Easter!
God has been truly faithful, forgiving, and merciful! He watched over us during our ups and downs and lifted us up in every fall. He provided for our every need, healed our hurts and pains, gave us rest when we were tired and weary. Today is a time to offer our lives to the one who gave His life for us because He loves us unconditionally! May God's abundant blessings be upon you!
"Be cheerful no matter what; pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live." (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 The Message)
A breath of prayer in the morning means a day of power and blessings..a sould shall never be helpless with G0d's infinite grace.. Good morning!
MORNING PRAYER: Dear God, I offer this day to You and all the choices I have to make. Grant me Your wisdom and guidance in all my actions and decisions.Cast out my cares and anxieties, my worries and concerns. Sustain me with Your mercy, peace and love throughout the day. In Jesus' name AMEN.
Our Lord God Almighty said:"i will never stop doing good things for them, and i will make them fear me with all their heart, so that they will never turn away from me. I will take pleasure in doing good things for them..."
When God increases our blessing. Its not meant to be a reward. It's a call to do greater things as worthy tenants of his vineyard. Dont simply thank GOD that u have much while others have little. Thank him because he has chosen 2 bless u and return 2 be a blessing 2 others.
I wish you a day of love and pleasant memories, a day of little things to smile about, a day of peace and happiness in your heart... May GOD grant you always a sheltering angel so nothing can harm you, laughter to cheer, good friends near you, and whenever you pray, heavens to hear you... A blessed day to you:)
God's way is better and higher than our ways. No matter what u go through in life, no matter how many disappointment u suffer, you will always be the apple of God's eye. He will never give up on u, so don't give up on yourself.
Life can be happier and less stressful if we remember one simple thought: "we can't have all that we desire, but God will give us all that we deserve" :)
A Word 2 ponder: "He knows the way that I take; when He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold." - Job 23:10 God sends trials not 2 impair us but 2 improve us.
A true person is like a Bible. Sometimes the cover may not be so elegant, but the contents are like bars of gold that you can treasure for a lifetime.
Put love into your heart so nothing would be heavy... Put understanding into your mind so nothing would be difficult... And put GOD into your whole being so nothing is impossible!:)
SMILE makes us look YOUNGER. while PRAYER makes us look STRONGER. so SMILE and PRAY always.
LIFE becomes wonderful even if there are struggles and difficulties. Because we have a God so loving and inspiring, WHO HEALS THE PAIN and KEEP US GOING!
Let your faith reach its peak and see how he turns all Impossible to possible.. May God be with you always.

Nothing starts easy. Everything begins at some Level of difficulty. But one thing beautiful about life is the fact that what is most difficult is also the most rewarding & satisfying. When life gets harder... hang on! Everything will be fine in God's perfect time.

Look at the fishes in the sea, even if they live long on salty water, they never absorb the taste of salt. "Remaining pure in a polluted world is difficult, but a heart filled with the Spirit of GOD, leaves no room for pollution."
God always has something for you, A KEY for every problem, A LIGHT for every shadow, A RELIEF for every sorrow, and A PLAN for every tomorrow.
"Lord, it's morning once again.... I look back to the graces I received from You... You always bless my concerns and those people I pray for. My heart is filled with joy and thanksgiving. Watch over my loved ones and friends thru the hours & days ahead & grant us a peaceful life."
God brought you to my thoughts today, and those thoughts turn into prayer that God will keep you safe, healthy and make you happy always!
Every SUNRISE is one day MORE to HOPE! Mornings don't mean just getting up again. It means GOD is giving us another chance to live LIFE better than before, a chance to LOVE, to choose & follow GOD's WILL... and a chance to savor HIS infinite LOVE & GRACE!

"In life, the best ornament is HUMILITY; the richest wealth is WISDOM; the strongest weapon is PATIENCE; the best security is FAITH; and the best tonic is LAUGHTER."... Live well, laugh often, love much, and share your blessings for God's glory! Praise God always!

- quiet moments when you're feeling overwhelmed,
- peace of mind when you're rushing through the day,
- wisdom when you're facing difficult choices,

Not all open doors are for us to enter.
Not all roads are for us to walk on.
Not all opportunities are good for us to grab.
Sometimes, it's a test of wisdom.
Test if we know ourselves.
Test to know our values & principles.
Our choices sometimes complicate our lives.
Seek God's wisdom and uncomplicate our lives.
May God grant us wisdom to know HIM more & faith for HIM to lead us to HIS plans..
"GOD will take care of us:" May our heart always find peace & comfort in the knowledge that we are never alone. GOD's presence ease our Spirit & give us rest when we need it... HE knows how we feel. HE is ever aware of our circumstances & ready to be our strength , our grace, & our peace...HE is there to cast sunlight into all of our darkened shadows, to send encouragement through the love of our friends & family & to replace our weariness w/ new hope.
"God has a reason for allowing things to happen. We may never understand His wisdom but we simply have to trust his will."
The effects of kindness are not always seen immediately. Sometimes it takes years until your kindness will pay off. Sometimes you never see the fruits of your labor, but they are there, deep inside the soul of the one you touched. Continue to be a blessing to others!
It's not the glow of the sun that matters. It's how you use the light to see the good around you and to brighten other people's hearts. HAVE A BLESSED DAY!
-the LORD will strengthen you, each step along the way..
-and let GOD's Spirit guide you gently day by day..
-for the Lord has the power to help you heal and grow..
-because the love of GOD will never let you go.
God loves you!
The kindness you give isn't always the same thing you get in return... Sometimes, it's more sometimes it's less; worst, sometimes you get none at all. But remember, GOD said: "The one who willingly gives is always more blessed than the one who receives. "
What really matters in this life is not what we hold in our hands but what we carry in our heart... May our heart feel no anger nor pain, but may it be filled with lots of values, virtues, goodness, love & most of all -- GOD's blessings! Stay blessed.
God has arranged events and placed people in your life for a reason.
In the same way, you have been appointed to be part of someone's life for a reason as well. Make that reason count, coz for every life you touch, you are gaining treasures for your own. be a GIFT to others.
GOD is so big, He can cover the world with love! yet He can stay inside your heart! So wise, He knows all your desires
but grants only what's best for you.
Always remember: Life is never called life without a problem, never without difficulty, never without hurtful moments, but never without God to lean on. Happy Easter!
The love of GOD...
-is the voice when you don't know what to say;
-is your strength when you're tired;
-is your hope when you're discouraged;
-and your joy when you're sad.
I pray that you will continue to experience His Love in all you do.
