Terrible storms come into our lives from time to time. Our little boat rocks hard in the tempest. We must sit close to Jesus and take hold of a part of His robe. Only then will we have a great calm in our heart. We need not be fearful of the storm because even the wind and waves obey Jesus. We must fight, fight, and fight until God blesses and the storm subsides. We have a Jesus that will take us through a storm and we will shine like gold.
Light for Today: And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but He was asleep. And his disciples came to him, and awoke Him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish. And He saith unto them, "Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?" Then He arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. Matthew 8: 25, 26

Are your prayers being answered?
Pray like you know God will answer you. God is faithful. He is great and He is loving. He can handle all your problems. Confess any sin in your life that you are aware of. Come before God with a pure heart when you pray. Then be very specific in what you ask for. If you pray so general it will be hard to know when your prayer is answered. God wants us to pray and ask for specific answers.
Light for Today: Don't worry about anything; instead pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and then thank Him for all He has done. Philippians 4:6

Goal: to feed on the Bible and learn to know Jesus better.
A simple plan is all you need. Set aside a specific time each day. Don't give Jesus your leftover time ~ meet Him when you are the freshest. You might like to have two quiet times, one in the morning and another in the evening before you retire for bed. Plan your quiet time to be at the same place each day. Some place where you are not disturbed easily and you can pray aloud. Relax ~ do not be in a hurry. Read the scripture you have chosen slowly and several times. Then wait on God to speak to you. He will if you are in tune with HIm. This is a very special time with your very best Friend. It's a time to look forward to with joy and anticipation.
Light for today: Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed. Mark 1:35 NIV

HOME SWEET HOME
Our home down here on earth will not come close to comparing with our heavenly home. We love our homes and families here on earth and that is good but we should love to think of our heavenly home too.
Home, sweet home!
Happy home sweet home!
Oh! say will you meet me there,
In that home above, where all is love,
And joy beyond compare?
Charles Edwin Pollock
Light for Today: Set your affections on things above. Col. 3:2

Today I will be exposed to new demands. I must make a choice. I'm free to choose.
I choose love.
I choose joy.
I choose peace.
I choose patience.
I choose kindness.
I choose faithfulness.
I choose gentleness.
I choose self con-control.
To these I commit my day. If I am successful I will give thanks. If I fail, I will seek forgiveness and God's grace. Then I will rest.
Light for Today: ...Now choose life so that you and your children may live. Deuteronomy 30:19b

GOD DEALS WITH IMPOSSIBILITIES
When the impossible is brought to God in full faith God can deal triumphantly with the tragic facts. We must put the whole situation and ourselves unreservedly and believing into HIS HANDS. He is the God of all grace.
Nothing is too hard for Jesus
No man can work like Him.
Light for Today: "Do you believe I can make you see?" Matthew 9:28
