Joyful Blessings

This day with God, be grateful for joyful blessings and be inspired by a video on the song “Counting Every Blessing” by Rend Collective.

This Day With God

Let all those rejoice who put their trust in You; let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them; let those also who love Your name be joyful in You. – Psalm 5:11

The post “Flourish in Blessings” explained a bright future for Israel because God was with them. Because of our acceptance of Christ, He is with us today and this changes momentum for our future.

We can share about this momentum shift with others so they can also receive the victory. Take inspiration from songs like Counting Every Blessing by Rend Collective. Value your blessings and keep them as mementos. Hold them in your thoughts, share them with others, and use them as stepping stones to an amazing place in the future.

Clean and Pure

Thoughts and actions of the past may keep us from coming into God’s presence but there is no need for anguish. This day with God, let us continue our desire to be faithful. Let us find joy in our trust in Jesus.

Because of Jesus,
We have a clean slate

The challenges we face.

This day with God will be amazing because we have the chance to put our focus on the ONE true God. If we pay attention to the world, disorder will expand to fill the void of human failure. Instead, let us worship daily with songs like I Can Only Imagine by MercyMe and put our attention on God so order will fill the void with greatness.

In the post “Keeping Our Eyes on the ONE Who Brings the Son Shine”, God was angry because some began to lose their focus and worship idols. Like many organizations, teams, or societies, it’s their lack of focus that has a way of causing havoc and becoming the real enemy.
