Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother’s womb. I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration—what a creation! You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body. You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you. The days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day. (Psalm 139:14-16 MSG)
Pray: Thank you GOD for making me. You know everything about me and have made me special. I am marvelously made!
JESUS said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14)
Pray: Thank you JESUS that you love children and want them to come to you.
Doesn’t everyone want to be happy and loved? GOD loved His people and wanted them to live happy, healthy, worthwhile lives that were faith-filled. He called Moses to the top of Mount Sinai, where He wrote His rules for living on two stone tablets. These rules are known as the Ten Commandments. (Read Deuteronomy 10:1-5). Take time today and notice how these Ten Commandments are used as a basis for many of our laws and ideas of right and wrong. These timeless commandments show GOD’S unchanging love for all His children and that includes you.
Pray: Thank you GOD for loving me and wanting me to live a happy, healthy, faith-filled, worthwhile life. Help me to obey your rules for living.
We live in a beautiful, colorful world that has wonderfully amazing things to see, hear, taste and smell. Guess who made it all and in just six days? GOD the Creator made the heavens and the earth. HE made everything out of nothing. Only GOD can do the impossible.
The Bible says: In the beginning GOD created the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1:1)
Prayer: Thank you GOD for being GOD. Only YOU can do the impossible.
HALLELUJAH is the Hebrew which means Praise the LORD!! So whenever we say or sing Hallelujah, we are admitting and recognizing the greatness and goodness of GOD. It is always a good thing to Praise the LORD. HALLELUJAH!!
“Praise the LORD, because HE is good. Sing praises to HIM, because it is pleasant.” (Psalm 135:3)
SMILE – Make Someone’s Day! If you see someone without a smile, give him/her one of yours. All people smile in the same language. A smile is the universal language for kindness.
“A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance.” (Proverbs 15:13)
Prayer: GOD help me to keep a smile in my heart and on my face.
It’s no fun being the one who is left out. The Bible says that “GOD heals the brokenhearted. HE bandages their wounds” (Psalm 147:3)
Remember: GOD is always with you. Talk to Him in prayer. He always listens.
Prayer: Thank You, GOD for always being there for me even when others are not. Your thoughts about me are always good. Help me to care and be kind to others who are left out.
