A New Day

 Yesterday was a bad day. Nothing bad happened, but I was bombarded all day with negative
thoughts, and temptations to do things I know aren't good for me. I gave in to some of them. I can be so weak. But today is a new day. I'm thankful that I just have a few bad days now and then. I used to have bad years. I'm thankful for lessons Jesus has taught me about keeping my mind focused on Him
and thinking that I'm holding on to His right hand as I go through my day. If I do those things today, then today will be a good day. As long as Jesus' presence is with me every second & step of my day.
"Let me hear of Your Unfailing Love each morning, for I am trusting You. Show me where to walk,
for I give myself to You. Rescue me from my enemies, Lord; I run to You to hide me. Teach me to do Your Will,  for You are my God.May Your Gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing",
 Psalm 143:8-10. NLT


  1. Hi Peggy,
    I pray that today you have a blessed day in the Lord. Hold tight to God, love Him and cherish His Word, and He will give you peace.

    Great peace have those who love Your law,
    And nothing causes them to stumble. Psalm 119:165


  2. The battlefield of the mind is our battle ground for those negative thoughts. Blessings to you Peggy as God goes before you. Hugs.

  3. Constant battle we're in...but sure glad You are His!!! Praying you're feeling better.

  4. hhhmmm..... my day for such was Saturday. By the end, when I realized how tired I was physically, I thought that might add to the emotional weariness! I also realized how the 'guilt' that was overwhelming me was certainly not from God. How I wander in the wilderness some days.....

    Thankful for the freedom given by God. "Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom."

    Have a week of freedom, in the country!
