Because I Have Now…

Because I have now…my lips will praise You; because I am not promised the next.

“Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee. Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name. My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips: When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches” Psalm 63:3-6.

Hope you have a Christcentered day,

In Christ I am SHE {Saved. Hopeful. Empowered.}

Blindness Remedy

  • I came across this today and it stopped me in my tracks. Such blindness doesn’t happen over night. It is a progression of “no’s” (rejections of God’s tug on our hearts to do or not do), a decision made against the One we call, our Lord and Savior.
  • This is a warning to all of us who call Jesus, Lord.
    • To be careful.
    • To be wise.
    • Be vigilant because our advisory, the devil, is roaming this world seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8).
  • Not to fear, Christ has a remedy as well:
    • Be cross-centered minded.
    • Be Christ-focused in every deed and word.
    • Be God-centered in this life, period.
    • To put on Christlikeness because we love Him so.
    • Colossians 3:17; Ephesians 5:1; 1 Corinthians 11:1; John 15:9-11; 1 Peter 2:21; Matthew 6:33.

Sin is sin. There is no getting around that. May today we choose Christ above everything. And tomorrow, choose all over again! And again. And again, until you and I see our Savior’s face in glory!

Til He comes again, have a blessed Christ-filled day, my friends!

“Usable” Hours

I have a few friends that I love dearly that are deeply embedded on my heart to pray for daily who struggle with some sort of chronic pain or illness.

Some, over the years have truly been mind blowing examples of Christ-likeness in the midst of their life long storms; reminding me of Paul, of Christ, reminding me that I have nothing to complain about and a grumbling spirit is never an excuse (Phil. 2:14-16).

I came across this writing (below) and it helped me to understand my sweet friends a bit better (Gal. 6:2), but it also rebuke me in how I need to redeem my time because it is a gift (Eph. 5:16), and I have no excuse in its waste before my Lord!

  • May we grow in putting on Christ-likeness.
  • May we grow in Christ-love for one another and our Savior.

today counts

thank you Lord for today


And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him” Col. 3:15-17. 

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” I Thess. 5:18.


As you walk throughout today, may your choice be Him! Above all else choosing to live Christ-centered, God-focused, and being thank-filled to the One who gave you the very breathe in which you breath right now…for tomorrow is not guaranteed. Today counts!
