Meditation/Betty’s Verse Of The Day/3-20-15
I am studying the fruits of the Spirit..Today’s fruit is Love.
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law
The fruit of the Spirit is the spontaneous work of the Holy Spirit in us. The Spirit produces these character traits that are found in the nature Of Christ. They are the by products of Christ’s control – we can’t obtain them by trying to get them without his help. If we want the fruit of the Spirit to grow in us, we must join our lives to his (see John 15:4,5). We must know him , love him, remember him, and imitate him. As a result we will full fill the intended purpose of the law-to love God and our neighbors. Which of these qualities do you want the Spirit to produce in you? Love BettyB..let’s pray..
Precious Jesus, please hear our prayers this morning. Lord, today help us to love like you love us, help us to show the fruit of love in our lives today, guide our hearts toward you and help us to see the love in action as we go on showing others today ..in Jesus name, Amen.
Meditation/Betty’s Verse Of The Day/3-11-15
3 Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; hold it fast, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you.
The church at Sardis was urged to obey the christian truth they had heard when they first believed in Christ, to get back to the basics of the faith. It is important to grow in our knowledge of the Lord, to deepen our understanding through careful study. But no matter how much we learn, we must never abandon the basic truths about Jesus. Jesus will always be God’s Son, and his sacrifice for our sins is permanent. No new truth from God will ever contradict these Biblical teachings. Love BettyB..Let’s Pray..
Precious heavenly Father please hear our prayers this morning. Lord today we come and kneel at your feet. As this day goes on Lord, help us to never forget what you have taught us through Jesus our Lord and Savior and protect our minds from evil things and help us to lean on you we love you Lord, In Jesus Name Amen.

DO NOT BE ANXIOUS ABOUT ANYTHING, BUT IN
EVERYTHING, BY PRAYER AND PETITION, WITH
THANKSGIVING, PRESENT YOUR REQUESTS TO
( PHILIPPIANS 4:6 *NIV )
Paul’s words render perfectly, which literally means do not be anxious about any little thing. The same teaching was given by Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount. Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Do not worry about tomorrow (Matthew 6:25,34). We have a heavenly Father who loves us, cares for us, and is able to help and support us – so why worry? Other passages in Scripture imply the same thing. So, today let us not be anxious let us pray, love Betty B.
Precious Jesus we come this morning to ask for your wisdom, for you to help us not to be anxious but to pray, we lift up our eyes to you Lord this morning, guide us today Lord protect our families and help us to be a good influence on others we come across today, in Jesus Name Amen.

2 Corinthians 5:1-5 (NIV)
Awaiting the New Body
5 For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. 2 Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, 3 because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked. 4 For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. 5 Now the one who has fashioned us for this very purpose is God, who has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.
We are not home, our bodies are not satisfied the way they are now, the physical pain, the depression, addiction, and sickness. We groan,wanting what God wants us to have, for He fashioned us for this purpose and gave us the Spirit as a deposit, God guaranteed and did seal us with His Spirit, so one day we will be restored to our heavenly home in heaven with God..Love BettyB..Let’s Pay..

Lord, this morning if we feel the pain of this world help us to change our thoughts toward heaven, help us to feel you near us guide us and help us to remember one day this tent we dwell in will be replaced, we are in awe of your love for us O Lord, In Jesus Name, Amen.

I WAITED PATIENTLY FOR THE LORD: HE TURNED TO ME
AND HEARD MY CRY.
( PSALM 40:1 *NIV )
Another waiting on the Lord verse, I believe these verses are very important in our lives and mostly in our prayer lives, because sometimes we may think as we pray God may answer right after the prayer is said. Now, maybe at times He will, but most of the time we have to have patience and we must wait for a answer, so today we just wait, let’s pray for guidance and patience as we wait on our Lord..Love Betty B..
PRECIOUS JESUS PLEASE HEAR US THIS MORNING, LORD HELP US TO HAVE PATIENCE TO WAIT ON ANSWERS FROM YOU, GUIDE US AND HELP US TO KEEP OUR FOCUS RIGHT, WE REACH UP AND TAKE YOUR HAND AND WE HAVE DECIDED TO KEEP LOOKING FOR ANSWERS IN PRAYER AND IN YOUR WORD, IN JESUS NAME AMEN.
Meditation/Betty’s Verse Of The Day/1-31-15
7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
We never know what we may do until we get ourselves into dire circumstances, like sacrifice, like giving away our lives for someone we love. Demonstrating something is doing it in action, it means to make evident or establish by arguments or reasoning; prove: God did just that, He proved to us how much He loved us by sending Jesus to take our sin on Himself so we may live, let us go to the cross and kneel this morning at the feet of Jesus, Love Betty B.. Pray with me!
O precious Jesus we come this morning kneeling at the foot of your cross, as we look up at you we rejoice in all your love for us, please guide us in your light today and help us to see you on that cross as we go through this day. Help us to remember others that need you so much that they don’t realize it, guide our lives to bring you glory, In Jesus Name Amen.

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
With God we could never understand just how amazing He really is, we can’t can’t fathom it, we can’t even understand His love, but according to His power that is at work within us, also means to me that He never stops working in us until the day He takes us home to heaven. Think about it today, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations.Love BettyB..Let’s Pray..

When you are brought before synagogues, rulers and authorities, do not worry about how you will defend yourselves or what you will say, for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say. — Luke 12:11-12
Have you ever been somewhere and you were in a conversation and had no idea how to answer or what to say? I think we have all been there.
