I Hope you have a great Day!

That’s what I say every morning when you walk out the door into this crazy messed up world, about to experiencing life’s ups and downs. But what I really want to say is…

I hope you remember that you are very important - highly valued - and always always loved!

I hope you don’t forget that everyone you encounter is precious to God.

I hope you learn to define success in the truth that you are so wonderful in God’s eyes, not by your accomplishments, or your wealth, or clothes, or possessions, or even by the way others treat you. I hope you don’t get caught up in the lie that you are not good enough and you will never be a success. Define success through God’s grace and you already are successful, even if it is a bad hair day.

I hope you get to know the excitement of pursuing your interests.

I hope you get to know the joy of helping others.

I hope you find the peace of trusting God when life stinks.

I hope you find lots of good reasons to laugh out loud.

I hope you take time to use your brain to filter everything that happens today through the scriptures. Then you can be wise and speak truth to every situation.

I hope you know all the blessings that God has provided for you.

I hope you understand more and more and more exactly what it was that Jesus did for us.

Ya, I wanna say all that.  But who has time?  I'll just say "Have a great day! 

Ephesians 1:3 Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! Through Christ, God has blessed us with every spiritual blessing that heaven has to offer…so that we might be free from all evil before him in love: As we were designed … for the position of sons to himself… In whom we have salvation through his blood, the forgiveness of our sins, through the wealth of his grace, which he gave us in full measure… so that all things might come to a head in Christ, the things in heaven and the things on the earth…
