In these troubling times, let's remember these words:
1 Chronicles 16:34
"Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever."
"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body
you were called to peace. And be thankful."
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition,
with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom,
singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God."
"The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped;
my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him."
Holy Spirit, direct us so that we are filled with peace and thanksgiving no matter
how the enemy tries to distract, confuse or intimidate us.
May our spirits align with Yours.
May our eyes be laser-focused on You.
May our hearts be softened towards the things You care about.
And may our lips always offer you our praise of thanksgiving
for Who You are, in Jesus's name, amen.
