31 July – Just because you can’t see it yet doesn’t mean it’s not happening!

just becasue you can't see

Today I had a conversation with our two youngest children. They were asking me that if something doesn’t happen immediately after you pray, or someone else prays for you does that mean it hasn’t happened, or is it that you just can’t see it, and you need to keep believing?

We talked about several different instances in the bible where Jesus spoke into situations or to people, and what happened as a result. We deduced that God doesn’t always do the same things in answer to our requests and prayer. Plus just because we can’t physically see something happening, does not mean that there is nothing happening!

Sometimes the answer is instantly obvious such as when Jesus and his disciples found themselves in the middle of a furious storm. Jesus got up and spoke to the wind and the waves and they died down and were completely calm.

A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher don’t you care if we drown?”

He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.

He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?” (Mark 4:37-40)

Yet other times when Jesus spoke into a situation nothing immediately and visibly seemed to change. An example is when Jesus and his disciples were walking along the road and Jesus was hungry and came to a fig tree that had no fruit. He spoke to the fig tree and said, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again”. The fig tree however didn’t suddenly shrivel up instantly before Jesus and his disciple’s eyes. No! Nothing visibly looked like it had changed; yet on returning the next morning along “that road again they all saw the fig tree had withered from the roots. “Peter remembered and said to Jesus “Rabbi, look! The tree you cursed has withered!” (Mark 11:14; 20-21)

So often when we pray or receive prayer we can miss what God is doing or give up on our faith because we underestiamte what God is doing behind the scenes or beneath the surface, and we can mistakenly presume nothing has happened.

But Jesus’ example in prayer teaches us that:

1. It’s by faith that we receive the things we speak and ask for. Jesus rebuked the disciples for their lack of believing and faith. He encouraged them after seeing the result and power of faith filled words to “Have faith in God, and “whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” (Mark 11:22-24).

If we lack faith the bible says to seek God and His way of doing things, and to build our confidence in His ability by hearing and speaking His word. His word and He are one, and it’s powerful when it gets down on the inside of us, and we allow it to transform us from the inside out.

Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17)

2. Things don’t always happen the same way twice. Read the gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) and you’ll soon discover that Jesus didn’t always pray, speak and minister exactly the same way. Sometimes He just spoke the Word, sometimes He spoke and then physically did something such as when he put mud on people’s eyes, or even spat on them.

Seek God for His methods and way of working in each situation you face, rather than acting in presumption.

3. The answer to our prayer is not always immediately visible. The fig tree looked like any other fig tree even after Jesus had spoken to it. Yet at Jesus’ spoken word something had began to change. That tree beneath the surface, at it’s core and root had begun to shrivel up. Jesus’ words and faith had already worked, but it was only the next morning that the disciples were able to “see it”.

When you pray or receive prayer for something don’t look simply in the physical realm for evidence of your answer. Stand believing in the truth of God’s word and the effective power of your prayer, knowing that “whatever we ask for in prayer will be ours if we continue to believe and speak God’s word”. (Mark 11:22-24)

Today, be encouraged that when you pray God will be working. Even if you can’t see anything physically, don’t underestimate that He will be working behind the scenes, at the root of the issue, and on the inside of us. Take heart and trust in God’s faithfulness and goodness, as you praise Him for your answers.

Prayer: Lord thankyou that at your word things change, and that even if I can’t see the changes, that doesn’t mean nothing is happening. Help me to stand on your word, and to keep speaking and believing in your promises until I fully receive in every way. In Jesus name Amen.

 

 

 

30 July – Keep your hopes alive

hope

One thing I have learnt is the importance of keeping our hopes alive. The definition of hope is a feeling of expectation and desire for a particular thing to happen. It entails a desire, expectation ambition, aim and dream.

However when we know God hope is even better because it’s not just having a wish or a desire, but a settled confidence in God and His promises. Instead of just hoping for something, our hope is in someone, and God is that someone who loves, cares and always wants the very best for us.

This hope is not based on our own abilities or the good will of the universe, but in God who has the power to accomplish all things, including the seemingly impossible.

This type of hope the bible says, will never allow us to be put to shame. Even when we may feel that all hope is lost, or the world around us is saying,“give up”, God declares that He is faithful to His Word and to remain steadfast in our believing, knowing that all things are possible for those who believe.”

The bible says, “No one who trusts in you will ever be disgraced…Show me the right path, O Lord; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you”. (Psalm 25: 3-5)

However as we all know our hope can often be put under pressure and even attacked. One of hopes biggest enemies is having to wait for things to happen, which is why waiting  can erode away at our confidence as the days, weeks, months and sometimes years pass by.  It’s especially in waiting that our hope has to be strengthened, nourished and energised for it to remain and work at it’s best. It doesn’t just happen, and we do need to make an effort to cultivate and maintain our hope.

In the midst of waiting I’ve discovered that God doesn’t  view time the way we do, and as much as we hate to hear it,“God is quite often simply not in a hurry.”

The bible says, “do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:8-9)

That is why it is so important to continually stir up and fuel our hope; that we draw close to God and check that what we are believing for is in agreement with His Word and will for our lives; that we continue to meditate on His promises, and to regularly connect with others who know God and His ways, and who will encourage us to keep hoping and believing.

 

Today take the time to strengthen your hope in God, and what you are believing and hoping for. “Don’t give up, and “don’t become weary in doing good, for at the proper time you will reap a harvest if you do not give up.” (Galatians 6:9). Keep your eyes upon Jesus who is the author and finisher of your faith, upon your goals and dreams; remembering everyday that God is good and He always has your best interests in mind. Focus your eyes upon Him and keep your hope alive.

“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfector of our faith.” (Hebrews 12:1-2)

 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.” (Mark 10:27)

The LORD delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love.” (Psalm 147:11)

Prayer: Lord help me to keep my hopes alive, and to remain hopeful even when I have to wait, or when others say it is impossible. Today I choose to keep believing for good things because you are the one I put my hope in. In Jesus name Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

29 July – Make plans!

make plans

I’m in the middle of planning our next family holiday. Planning is an interesting process because it makes us think and articulate what we really want. We can talk around and around in circles about a subject, but it’s only when we have to put our plans down on paper and prepare to take action that real decisions have to be made, and decisions can be difficult.

However even though making plans can be difficult and possibly at times confronting, there are significant benefits when we choose to sit down, get quiet and make plans.

Making plans makes us revisit our dreams, and the things that so often get pushed into the background. Our responsibilities and daily life can silence what we truly desire and dream about, but when we make plans we are forced to look beyond the everyday, to what we really want.

Making plans encourages us to search our hearts and to be honest with others and ourselves. We are more inclined to prioritise what is really important to us when making plans, and not just seek to take the easiest route or course of least resistance.

Making plans makes us realise that we need wisdom and clarity on what to do, and where to go next. Otherwise we simply become a victim of our schedule and life passes us by, rather than taking definite steps in a planned direction to get to where we really want to go.

Making plans often motivates us to seek higher revelation (preferably the God kind), as we recognise we need direction and guidance. In planning we realise that we don’t always know the best thing to do, and we actually would benefit from God’s help and for Him to speak to us and to give us direction.

Making plans lifts our perspectives to one where we actively seek “to do the things that matter,” rather than just coasting along letting life simply happen around us. Plans give us direction, vision, clarity, and something to get out of bed in the morning for. Planning leads to goal setting and strategizing, which creates an energy and momentum in our lives. It helps us to have purpose, and we are less likely to get caught up in negative situations, and relationships. Plans help us to know where we are going, the steps to take and the reasons for it all.

Today, are you making plans and if so, who’s helping you? Are you making plans in your own wisdom and ability, or have you asked God for His wisdom and knowledge of what is the best course of action, and what His plan is. He actually wants to surpass any plan we may have, and to make “the plan” even better. The bible says, “God will do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us,  (Ephesians 3:20).

Don’t just let life happen around you; get involved and make some plans. But remember to seek God and include Him in the process, because He knows us better than we know ourselves. He knows the dreams and desires of our hearts, the end from the beginning and everything in between. He’ll direct us in the right way to go, how to avoid danger and disaster, and will bless everything we put our hands and hearts to.

Let God direct you in your plans today, and see what He will do in, and through you.

Jesus said, “The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give you a rich and satisfying life. “ (John 10:10 NLT)

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”(Jeremiah 29:11)

“We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.” (Proverbs 16:9 NLT)

Prayer: Lord thankyou for helping me to make plans, and that in them you will guide and direct my steps. Help me to be honest and true to who I am, and to seek after the life you created me to live. In Jesus name Amen.

28 July – Praise at work

praise him

We can often get into the habit and mindset of waiting to praise or get excited about something until we can see the breakthrough. We sit back and wait.

However the bible teaches us something quite different. It says don’t wait until you can see the manifestation before you believe you have it and begin to praise. Don’t wait, because when we believe we’ve received when we’ve prayed we begin to praise God now!

1 John 5:14-15 says, “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.”

We can depend on God, and the promises of His word, but a key to receiving these promises is learning how to pray with praise. Thanksgiving and praise according to God’s word are integral parts of prayer. “Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God’. (Philippians 4:6)

Praise is more than just nice words, or platitudes. Praise is powerful and a force. It silences our enemy, lifts our perspective and gives us strength. (Psalm 8:1-2; Matthew 21:16)

In actual fact according to God’s word praise and strength are one and the same thing. When we praise we gain strength, so if you want to be strong learn to praise!

Personally I think it’s a great idea to have a praise dance or shout. (I have my own little Irish jig happening.) When we have a favourite sporting team or something we get excited about, most of us don’t just sit on the lounge doing nothing. In our house when our team scores a goal, and better still wins a game we praise and give thanks; we shout, jump up and down, clap, wave our footy teams scarfs, and hoot and make a noise.

If we can get excited about these and other things in our lives we can certainly praise God and get excited about claiming our victory in Jesus, and receiving the answers to our prayers.

When we pray and declare God’s promises our faith is activated. Then praise must be put to work – “with supplications (asking) and thanksgiving (praise) we make our requests to God.

We praise as part of our prayer life, because we know that God’s word is true. We praise because Jesus has won the victory for us, and we just have to walk it out; we praise because God is faithful and He has ordained praise to silence our enemy. We praise because it lifts our eyes and perspective above our circumstances onto God. We praise because it makes us strong. We praise because when we do it releases supernatural power and the force of our faith. We praise because we win!

If you find it difficult to praise, or you aren’t familiar with it then start by getting the Word out and reading (preferably out loud) the Psalms, which speak of God’s goodness, His mighty exploits and power, His mercy and His grace. Listen to praise music and get around others who know how to praise and be encouraged by them.

Praise is powerful and instead of remaining under our circumstances it will put us over them.

“I will tell of the Lord’s unfailing love; I praise him for all he has done for us.” (Isaiah 63:7)

“Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him and bless his name.” (Psalms 100:4)

“Out of the mouths of babes and nursing infants you have perfected praise.’ (Psalm 8:2; Matthew 21; 16)

Prayer: Lord thankyou that you have ordained praise to silence my enemies and to bring me strength. Help me to praise you because in praise I have the victory. You are faithful to your promises, and when I ask I receive. In Jesus Name Amen.

27 July – Separated!

set apart by the word

We are surrounded by a world which is full of amazing and wonderful things. But alongside these wonderful things are also some elements that are not so great, or beneficial to us. The question is, “How do we avoid getting caught up in the not so great elements, and how do we stand apart from them?”

Jesus gave us the answer to this question in a prayer he prayed just before he was crucified, rose again and ascended to heaven. He said in John 17:16-17, “Father, I do not pray that you should take them out of the world, but that you should keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them by Your truth, Your word is truth.”

Sanctify means to be separate, and Jesus was saying we are to be separated by the truth, and that God’s word is the truth that will separate and keep us.

When we first come to know Jesus we become a new creation, separated spiritually from the kingdom of darkness and born anew into the kingdom of God. (Colossians 1:13) However if we don’t continue to grow in our relationship and knowledge of who we are in God and in His word, we can continue to live as we did before. We may be separated from spiritual death, but we can still be physically and mentally connected to our old way of living. As a result we often continue to live in fear, lack, sickness and confusion just like everyone else around us.

We can’t separate ourselves from an old habit or lifestyle without separating ourselves to something stronger. But God’s word will, for God and His word are one, and He is stronger than any other force in the universe. If we choose to put our relationship with Jesus first, and we spend time reading and studying God’s Word, then the Word will separate us from the poverty, anxiety, sickness, hatred and fear that we used to belong to, and which the world is immersed in.

His word will separate us from every negative aspect of this world, toward the things of God. We don’t have to stress and struggle to do that, for the Word will do it for us. All we have to do is read it; allow it to remain and abide in our life, and it will do it’s transforming work.

Jesus said, “If you abide in me and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.” (John 15:7)

“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.” (Romans 12:2)

Today, put the Word first, and allow it to do its work. Let it separate you from the darkness of this world to the joy and peace of the things of God.

Prayer: Lord thankyou for the power of your word. Help me to immerse myself in your truth so that it will separate me from all the negativity of the world, enabling me to live the life for which you created me for. Let the Word go to work in me. In Jesus name Amen.

 

 

 

26 July – Don’t worry or fear!

don't worry

When dealing with worry or fears we need to see them for what they are. Worry and fear are like entities all of their own, and it’s helpful to see them like that so that we don’t grow to just accept the thoughts and often-outright lies as anything else but an assault on us. They don’t need to be accepted, or accommodated.

Worry and fear need to leave. They are unwelcome visitors who we don’t need to make feel welcome in our lives. For us to be healthy and whole, it’s helpful to recognise that fact, so that we can start to replace “worry and fear” with other positive influences in our lives.

As with any unwelcome influence or annoyances that try to get in our face, it’s often no point fighting with them, when actually we can simply walk away and choose to ignore what they are saying. Some situations, and conversations we are wisest to not even get involved with or entertain, and the same can be said of worry and fear.

When you start to worry, don’t get stressed about it, or get into a fight with those negative thoughts and emotions, because often worry and fear will try to fight back. Instead ask God for help, write down what you are worrying about, determine whether it is a rational thought or merely lies, and then if need be throw it in the bin; then walk away, shake them off, and choose to distract yourself by doing something you enjoy, and that makes you feel even a little bit happy.

Even if you have to do that ten times a day, that’s okay because as we change the way we think it will make new pathways in our brains. These new pathways and thoughts over time will change how we look and process our circumstances, conversations and life in general.

Today, don’t get in a fight with worry and fear, but see them for what they are – liars and joy killers. Put them in their appropriate place –“the, I need to deal with you properly and take action instead of just going around in circles, or I need to march you out the door and dump you in the bin”. Then walk away and refuse to make worry and fear welcome in your life today.

“For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.  Do not be afraid, for I myself will help you,’ declares the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.” (Isaiah 41:13-14)

“The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.” (Psalm 34:7) 

Prayer: Lord please help me to recognise that worry and fear are liars, and that they only come knocking when they are trying to steal my joy and peace. Help me to face them; to see them for what they are, and to then choose to walk away, instead of wasting my time listening and getting in a fight. In Jesus name Amen.

 

 

25 July – Dress for the job you want!

faithful in the little things

There is a saying that you should “dress for the job you want”, which doesn’t take away from the importance of dressing well for the job you have now. But what I understand from this quote is that we should be looking ahead for good things to happen, and living in expectation of God bringing opportunity, favour and blessing our way. For us to make the most of every day, and to give our best in everything we do.

It‘s about being faithful in the things that God has given us, even if they seem small and insignificant, because when we can be trusted with a little, God sees and will trust us with more.

In Matthew 25:14-31, we read the parable of the men who were entrusted with talents. One was given five talents, traded them and doubled what he had; one was given two talents and gained two more; but the one with one talent dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money. To the first two, the master spoke these words, “Well done, good and faithful servant. You were faithful with a few things, I will put you in charge of many things, enter into the joy of your master”

This parable can be applied to every area of our lives. God sees and rewards those who are faithful with the small things, and as we make the most of the gifts, talents and opportunities God has blessed us with.

God says, “If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities.” (Luke 16:10)

If we want things to be different, or we have dreams and desires that are ahead of us  and yet to happen, perhaps having the thought of dressing for the job or life we want actually helps us not to become slack in what we are doing. It helps us to stay motivated to watch our attitudes, to give everything we do our very best, to take care of ourselves, to put effort and priority into our relationship with God and others, to carefully measure our speech and actions, and to remain faithful in the everyday things as we look forward to the future.

The little things are important, and when we remain faithful and make the most of all that we have already, it teaches us to be thankful and appreciative of what we have, but also for us not to waste the opportunities before us as we expect God to pour out His blessing and favour upon our lives.

Today dress for the life you want, be faithful and make the most of every opportunity, ability and gift you have, and expect God to bless it.

 For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11 AMP)

Prayer: Lord help me to appreciate all that you have given me and to not judge anything as too little or insignificant. Please give me the wisdom and motivation to make the most of every opportunity, and to not disregard anything you have given me, or ask me to do. In Jesus name Amen.

24 July – Take it to the courts!

take it to the courts

If someone commits a crime, and steals what is rightfully yours, would you just sit back and do nothing? Or would you stand up, use the legal system available to you and take your case to the courts?

The question is, if we are prepared to do that in the earth’s system, why are we not doing that in the spiritual court system available to us when the devil steals from us? The devil has no business messing with our lives, because Jesus defeated him when He died and rose again. But if we allow it, he will try and steal from us and attempt to infiltrate our territory. He will attempt in every area of our lives to deceive, entice, and try to make us think we must live under the curses of sickness, lack, brokenness and toil, instead of in The Blessing that God says is rightfully ours. (Galatians 3:13)

What we need to do is stand up and take the devil to court. Wherever we have had things stolen from us; our health, finances, family, relationships, our future, our peace and joy then we need to get hold of God’s word which is our legal document, gather our defence and bring the devil before the courts of heaven so that he will be shut down from messing with our lives, and the places where we live.

The problem is that many people struggle to do this because they don’t know who they are; they don’t know that if they come to Jesus and ask him to be part of their lives, and confess their sins, that He is faithful and just to forgive them and cleanse them from all wrongdoing. (1 John 1:9)

They don’t know that every curse has been broken, and that The Blessing of heaven is theirs. (Galatians 3:13; Duet 28: 1-14).

They don’t know that by trust and faith in their covenant agreement with God they win every time! So the devil goes on stealing, killing, and destroying, constantly looking for ways to infiltrate and ruin people’s lives.

However all anyone needs do is get hold of their legal document, which is found in God’s word, and present their case, (just as you would in an earthly court of law), to God the righteous judge, in the courts of heaven.

If you know Jesus then you have access, and every right to bring your case before God our righteous judge. Jesus is our advocate in the heavenly courtrooms and His sacrifice on the cross speaks for us. (1 John 2:1) Whatever the enemy may have to bring against you cannot stand against Jesus’ finished work on the cross. Simply confess any sin, then come to God, plead your case and speak out your legal rights. The devil is judged according to our covenant agreement with God, which means that we get to take back what is rightfully ours. Take back your relationships, your health, your future, your children, your city, and your nation.

Today stand up, research your case and legal rights and authority in the Word of God, and take it to the courts!

If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just [true to His own nature and promises], and will forgive our sins and cleanse us continually from all unrighteousness [our wrongdoing, everything not in conformity with His will and purpose]”. (1 John 1:9 AMP)

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.” (Psalm 100:4)

“Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” (Hebrews 4:16)

Prayer: Holy Spirit would you please guide me in researching and understanding my legal rights found in your Word. Teach me how to stand against the tactics of the devil and to take it to the courts of heaven to receive what is rightfully mine. In Jesus name Amen.

 

 

23 July -Loving who you are!

love yourself

Have you ever wished you were someone else, or that you had someone else’s life? That you had that person’s skills or abilities and looked as amazing as the person you just walked past on the street?

One of our daughters has a shirt that reads ‘I woke up like this.” But I wonder how many of us actually feel that way, and whether we in fact like ourselves very much when we first look in the mirror in the morning before we have had a chance to scrub up, dress up, and cover up?

Moses a great leader who God chose to lead the Israelites to freedom also wondered if he was good enough. When God first called Him to step up, Moses was fearful and cried out, “I can’t Lord, I stutter and don’t speak well”. He worried he was going to fail, whether people would listen to him, and he asked for someone else to go instead.

“When the Lord spoke to Moses in the land of Egypt, he said to him, “I am the Lord! Tell Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, everything I am telling you.”  But Moses argued with the Lord, saying, “I can’t do it! I’m such a clumsy speaker! Why should Pharaoh listen to me?” Then the Lord said to Moses, “Pay close attention to this. I will make you seem like God to Pharaoh, and your brother, Aaron, will be your prophet.” (Exodus 6:29-7:1)

Everyone has moments of self-doubt. Moses did and he turned out to be one of the greatest leaders of all time even though he initially doubted his abilities and wondered if he would measure up, or was good enough. Yet with God’s help, he grew into the person and leader God had chosen and planned for him to be.

When it comes to life; to who we are and whether people like us, it is more important for us to like and be ourselves, rather than worrying and spending so much effort in trying to make everyone else like and accept us. For the danger in that is that we can lose sight of who we actually are, and end up hiding behind masks where no one including ourselves gets to see the real us.

I‘ve discovered that people “either like you or they don’t”, and It’s actually more important that we grow to like ourselves, discover our God-given talents, skills, our likes and dislikes, what brings us joy, and who God has made us to be. God wants us to use our time and energy in discovering the plans He has for us, rather than trying to fit into everyone else’s expectations.

Today, instead of wondering Am I good enough? Am I good looking enough? Will I fail? Will they like me?” Know that you are special and valuable to God; that He has a plan, that He made you and thinks you are amazing, and go and simply enjoy the day being you, because “you” is pretty great.

“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.” (Psalm 139:13-14)

“But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”(1 Samuel 16:7)

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” (Genesis 1:27)

Prayer: Lord thankyou for making me who I am. Please help me to appreciate my uniqueness and to discover every day something new about myself, and about how you think about me. Thanks for loving me and making me who I am. In Jesus name Amen.
