31 Days of Praise | Day 25 10 Year Wedding Anniversary

Wow. Time sure flies when you’re having a blast! I can’t believe Sweet T and I are already celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary!!! Where did the time go? 

Yes, today I praise God for giving me a great wife and bringing me the love of my life. She blesses me every single day and I am amazed to see how she has grown in her walk with the Lord through the time we have been together.

I’m thankful for my beautiful Sweet T and everything we’ve experienced together. I look forward to enjoying many more years with her, as we walk side by side wherever the Lord takes us. 

Thank You Lord! What a wonderful gift You’ve given me in Sweet T.

1 Corinthians 13:4-13

4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

8 Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. 11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.

13 So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

31 Days of Praise | Day 24 King of King, Lord of Lords

You and I can endure and persevere in our faith—trusting God to follow through on His promises—because the Lord is sovereign and ruler over all. He is indeed the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords!

As believers, we pursue our spiritual goals over our physical goals. As we follow God we should strive for different objectives from the acquisition of wealth for selfish purposes. It’s not the money that is bad. It’s a selfish, self-centered attitude that is problematic. Anything we put above God and solely satisfying our own selfish desire is bad. We must love God with our everythingess and others as we love ourselves.

As Christians, we put God first in our life. Pleasing the Lord becomes our priority. We realize that putting God first allows everything else in our lives to fall in its proper place. We recognize that He is able to do all things, greater than we could ever imagine and that He alone is worthy of our praise and worship.

Praise the Lord for He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords!

Blessings,

1 Timothy 6:12-16 (ESV)

12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. 13 I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who in his testimony before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, 14 to keep the commandment unstained and free from reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 which he will display at the proper time—he who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, 16 who alone has immortality, who dwells in unapproachable light, whom no one has ever seen or can see. To him be honor and eternal dominion. Amen.
