For My Benefit

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

"I am leaving you with a gift - peace of mind and heart.  And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give.  So don't be troubled or afraid."  John 14:27

Thank you, Lord, for the gifts you give!  You know my needs even before I do.  When I am afraid, you comfort me and give me courage.  When I am lonely, you fill my heart with love.  Lord, I know that I need not worry about what is to come, for your plan for my life is for my benefit.  All you do is good.  Your Holy Spirit calms my heart and gives me true peace. Thank you for this great blessing!  I am placing my faith in you.  Through Christ I pray, amen.

Trusting Him,

  4. Joan-God used this post in a way you might not have imagined- a foster son has just heard he has not got the job he thought was a certainty and he has to let his present employer know tomorrow if he is staying or going- and then I was up to your post in my daily readings- and your verse was perfect- He received it joyfully. God Bless you !!!~!
