It is good to proclaim your unfailing love in the morning, your faithfulness in the evening...You thrill me, Lord, with all you have done for me! I sing for joy because of what you have done, O Lord, What great works you do! And how deep are your thoughts. Psalm 92:2, 4-5
Feelings help us identify what is going on in our lives and all around us. But, feelings can be our enemy, too. If we dwell in them too long or lose perspective by thinking of how we feel about something. We can get stuck and focus on past failures, here and now struggles and the fear of what may come. How can we get out of this funk? Take our eyes off ourselves and set them on the Lord. As we look to God's greatness and goodness, His Spirit infuses us with hope about what He will do in our lives!
Having been a patient of chemotherapy where I visited the infusion center twice monthly, I can relate to the power of the word. I pray that I will be infused by the healing power of the Holy Spirit to change my attitude.
Today Lord I have so many blessings. Help me to focus on You and not me;
