Awake you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light. Eph 5:14
It’s a cloudy, lackluster Monday morning. My daughter is fighting a cold and my spirit could really use a pick me up. We all have these blah days, but thank God, there is relief for every circumstance in His Word. Sometimes a simple reminder of God’s intentions toward us will brighten any day. The Bible is literally filled with His promises to and for us. These are just a few. It is my hope that they encourage and bless you and strengthen your faith today.
Deuteronomy 28:2-6 And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you if you heed the voice of the Lord your God. Blessed shall you be in the city and blessed shall you be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of your body and the fruit of your ground and the fruit of your beasts, the increase of your cattle and the young of your flock. Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading trough. Blessed shall you be when you come in and blessed shall you be when you go out.
