Words of Encouragement

A mother cares for her child, by giving him or her protection, comfort and what the child needs.  Is our God any less?  Will he not provide for his children as well?

Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. - Matthew 22:37

Worship is...opening the avenue by which we tell God of our love and God shows his love to us.

Lord today we thank you for giving us the opportunity to come to you and share all the things on our hearts.  We can tell you of our cares on our hearts, of our fears and you will not turn us away.  We can come to you for wisdom and for guidance and you freely give it.

Lord we are thankful that we can express our love to you and you in turn continually show us your love.  It is your love being shown to us that helps us to be more and more like you.  Lord thank you because you help us to walk like you, talk like you and be more like you.

Lord we thank you and worship you for giving us a way to you.  We were cut off without your expression of Love through your Son for us.  Help us today to remember the words that speak to us "In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins." (1 John 4:10).

Lord this day, help us to worship you through our ability to love you because you loved us first.
