“Bless the Lord, O my soul
And never forget all God’s benefits” Ps.103:1
“Do not judge least you be judged for you will be treated as you treat others, and the measure you give will be the measure you get” Matt.7:2
Pause and just be as you are in the presence of God.
How do you bring yourself ? What do you hold within you and what does that ask of you?
As you sit here begin to remember all of God’s benefits toward you. He is gazing at you with eyes of love and acceptance right now.
Can you trust totally in this deep love and allow yourself to sink in there into the ground of your being with God?
Begin to release yourself to the Lord as you pray;
We remember Lord that you are always waiting for us to come and receive your grace. We are so thankful for all that we have in you. For all that is ours and will be ours if we only surrender into the gift of your being in us.
Help us this day to see beauty in ourselves so we may see beauty in others.
Forgive us for the way we judge another and when we hold these judgements in ourselves.
We lay our judgments down and rest a while by the quiet pool of living water you provide for us.
May we dip our cup in and drink from the well of your grace and be empowered to offer this cup to people you have placed in our lives.
We open our hands up with our arms stretched wide into your heavenly expanse that knows no limits nor measure.
Let us give out of your abundance freely as you have freely given to us.
May we grow our roots down deeper to discover how intimate and far reaching is your love! How enduring and inclusive it is! Endless love beyond measurement that transcends our understanding - the fullness of God. Eph.3
Thanks be to God, our creator, Jesus our constant companion, Holy Spirit, our faithful guide.
