We may imagine that He has forgotten us sometimes but God's word assures us that the One who is praying for us night and day is always thinking about us. "I am poor and weak, yet the Lord is thinking about me right now!" ~(Psalm 40:17 ERV)
The One who is praying for each of us day and night is constantly thinking about us, praying for all of our needs. He is at the right hand of His Heavenly Father, the Bible says, pleading for us.
(Romans 8:34). And nothing will ever be able to separate us from His immeasurable love toward us.
Heavenly Father, thank You that You sent Your only Son to die for our sins to redeem us for Yourself and that He now stands beside You in the Eternal Day pleading on our behalf. Thank You that You are for us and that Thy word says if You are for us, that NOTHING can be against us. Thank You that You cannot and will not ever fail or forsake us and that we are always in Your thoughts. Your love for us is measureless. Help us to remember and consider these things in our challenging times. Help us to remember that Thy Son is ALWAYS praying for us according to Thy will for us. We love You, Lord. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Has God given you a dream? Maybe it's an idea that seems too impossible to ever come true. Don't throw it away! Have faith in the dreams that God sows inside your heart. Here are some scriptures to encourage you to keep believing and working toward making those dreams God gives you come true. God Bless you. I am praying for you.
The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me. Lord, Your love is eternal…"~(Psalm 138:8 NLT)
"God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished
on the day when Christ Jesus returns." ~Philippians 1:6 (Philippians 1:6 NLT)
“This is the word of The Lord…‘Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty.” ~ (Zechariah 4:6 NIV)
"Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin…" ~(Zechariah 4:10 NLT)
"Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think."~(Ephesians 3:20 NLT)
Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.” ~(Matthew 19:26 NLT)
"For nothing is impossible with God.” ~(Luke 1:37 NLT)
"God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us. Glory to God…” ~Ephesians 3:20 (The Message Bible)
Heavenly Father, may You bless each person reading these words. May they not give up on the dreams You have created them to fulfill. Thank You, Lord. I love You. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Lord, Help Me To Be That Tree (© S.D. Harden)
Lord, help me be the flexible tree~
That bends its boughs in adversity,
Through winds of trial and suffering,
That hides itself away in Thee
And trusts when assailed by enemies;
Whose limbs bow humbly in chastening,
Who will not break but find the Stream
Of God to drink, it's roots will cling,
It's roots dig deep into that Stream...
It's leaves are ever full and green,
It bears its fruit to Christ it's King...
In every season it will sing...
Oh Lord, help me to be that tree.
Oh Lord, help me to be that tree~
That tree that bows and bends to Thee;
For the tree that bows and bends the knee
Will bear the fruit that honors Thee,
That lasts throughout Eternity...
Oh Lord, help me to be that tree.
Heavenly Father, may we ever cling to Your promises in Your word that You are always with us in every season of our lives. No matter what challenge we may ever face on our path, You will be right there to see us through as we put our faith, hope, and trust in You. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus' name, amen.
