From: Behold the Lilies- Daily Meditations for Christian Women (Verna Mast & Susan Schwartz)
😇: John21:21-22 Peter seeing him switch to Jesus, Lord and what shall this man do? Jesus saith unto him…what is that to thee? follow thou me.
🦄: Sometimes I tend to feel that what the Lord uses to refine my life should be used in other’s lives too. When I feel left out and lonely, I want to take others through the same experience so that they know how it feels. I wonder why others have certain privileges that are denied to me.
💡: If God allowed me to always do what others do and have what they have, I would not desire him alone. Each of God’s children is unique an precious to Him. He treats me as an individual.
🦋: God knows how to bless me and help me grow.
🎬: I must be secure with the knowledge that my experiences will be God’s unique arrangement for me!

Thriving Together (Xochitl Dixon) 😇: Colossians 3:15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace.
📚: Paul tells us that God cares about how we interact with each other, because the actions of one person can impact the whole community of believers. (Colossians 3:3-14)
🦋: When I embrace opportunities to serve others, fully devoted to unity and peace, the church flourishes.
🦋: I can inspire and protect others through loving and honest relationships, obeying and praising God with a grateful heart.
🎬: Paul instructs me to let the message of Christ dwell in me as we teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the spirit.

Wasted Worry 😇: Matthew 6:31-33 Therefore do not be anxious saying, What shall we eat? or What shall we drink? or What shall we wear? For the Gentiles seek after all these things and your Heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
🦄: Often I lay awake in bed at night worrying about money, stable housing, unexpected expenses, ever increasing debt, and my mental & physical health. To maintain financial success, I often work myself ragged and sick.
🦋: Worry is pointless because I have God to thank for my provision. Only He can provide exactly what I need.
🦋: God sees my needs and meets them.
🎬: I must ask God to help me keep my eyes and heart centered on Him. If I rely only on myself, I prohibit God from showing up in my life in big ways. I must strive for more of God and less of what the world has to offer.
