06/15          Psalm 63:1

1 O God, you are my God;
    I earnestly search for you.
My soul thirsts for you;
    my whole body longs for you
in this parched and weary land
    where there is no water.

NOT

This world is not our home.  

We are looking for that place where God lives,

Living for the day we are face to face with Jesus.

Be the change you want so badly to see.  

Begin earnestly searching for God,

He rewards those who seek Him.  

JUNE 14 – MT. 5:6

JUSTICE

Change, grow and clean up your own backyard,

Before you begin clamoring for justice. 

God is just and He will mete out justice.

GRATITUDE

Gratitude is the attitude of the Kingdom. 

You and I will cultivate the ability to see,

All that the Lord has done for us,

And is doing for us.

Gratitude embodies the mindset of the growing Christian.

Without gratitude, your growth will stop,

And you will struggle until you cultivate the ability to be grateful in all things,

And in all seasons.

The Lord is good and He is good to us in thousands of ways every day.
