Glory to God. 
Dear Lord 2020 has been a memorable year that some would rather forget. But Father I pray for strength to start each day with wisdom and courage to face the new year no matter what we encounter in 2021.Our lives have been so busy this past year with work, new problems, and everyday life in general.
 
Help us to remember to set aside time to sit at your feet and listen to your voice…even if it’s just for a few minutes. Forgive us for being too busy to include you in our daily schedule.
 
There have been a lot of troubles in the world in 2020: heartaches, sickness, loss of loved ones, riots & destruction, political unrest, natural disasters, job challenges, school and church closures, failing businesses, separation from loved ones, arguments and divisions, and so much more. I pray we will not blame you or use these trials as an excuse to not praise you and give thanks for your goodness and love. But instead we would slow down and draw closer to you.
 
Help us remember you are still on the throne, you have a plan for us and your perfect love casts out all fear. Teach us to manage our fears so we are not immobilized. Keep us safe. Give us wisdom to evaluate each situation and adjust as needed, remembering to act the way Jesus would.
 
Help us love and appreciate others even when we don’t agree. Give us the grace to accept we cannot change anyone but ourselves. . As we share our strengths and weaknesses with one another may it be in order to support and build each other up, instead of tearing down.
 
We thank you Lord that you are with us and that you will never leave or forsake your kids. We trust in your provision for our daily needs. Show us how to help our neighbors in need and to be generous with a cheerful heart.
 
Father we pray for all those who don’t believe in your Son. By your grace open their eyes and ears so they can hear your voice, see the truth, and believe the simple good news of how the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ provided the free gift of forgiveness and salvation for eternal life, by an act of faith. We pray for the harvest to be plentiful and the laborers given open doors to boldly share your love. Go before us Lord, preparing the hearts of the lost with your goodness that leads unto repentance.
 
Guide us by your Holy Spirit as we walk into the waters of the unknown of 2021, so that we come out on the other side in the promised land, which is our inheritance. Lord we watch and wait in patient expectation of the return of your Son Jesus Christ to take His bride. We thank you that we can trust all of your prophecies will come to pass in your perfect timing and that you are empowering us with your, strength and might to work for your kingdom in love, with evidence of miracles, signs, and wonders through the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
 
Father the heavens declare your glory. Your Son is the manifest presence of your glory, and the Holy Spirit reveals your glory. We humbly ask, Lord release your glory, let it fall, may we walk in your glory, let the world see your glory in 2021. All glory to you God, now and forever more! AMEN
 
Give to the LORD the glory he deserves! Bring your offering and come into his courts. Psalm 96:8 NLT
 
Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; bring an offering and come before him. Worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness. I Chronicles16:20 NIV
 
“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31).
 
All glory to God Ps 115:1
Dec. 18, 2020

We know it all began,

When God became a man.

A night when the stary host,

Of the only Son, they did boast.

Hallelujah, Angels sing,

Salvation He will bring.

Good will to all mankind,

Joy, and peace of mind.

Just knock, He’ll open the door,

To freedom more and more.

There’s no room for any shame,

On the cross He took all the blame.

Now we’re made Holy, pure, and right,

We have all His power and might. 

It’s a story that has to be told,

To both those young and old.

 The days are getting short now,

So to our Lord and  King we bow.

 In your life, for Him make room,

Because He’s coming back soon.

 We’ll see Him come in a cloud,

To gather up a great crowd.

This is the truth, not a lie,

It will happen in the twinkling of an eye.

So fill your lamp with oil, get ready,

Watch, be faithful, and steady.

The bride and groom will finally meet,

At the marriage feast you’ll have a seat.

But this is not the end of the story,

We will reign with him forever in glory.

HAS 2020 BEEN A BAD YEAR FOR YOU?
Certainly this year is, for many people, one of the worst years of their lifetimes.
So far we’ve had natural disasters and a global pandemic, a very questionable election, and so much more.
 
Remember New Year’s Eve 2019?
As the clock struck midnight and you toasted in 2020, maybe you were excited about the year ahead.
Maybe Whatever you planned hasn’t happened.
I know that is true for me.
 
There’s a weariness – and a wariness – as we come to the close of 2020.
The weariness comes from having borne it all – experiencing things or the lack of things; that we never imagined we’d face.
The wariness is about wondering what’s in store for 2021. What if it gets worse?
 
Which is why I wrote 21 Days of Encouragement...
to give you a way to end 2020 on a positive note with a hope for the future.
I am very proud of this E-book and know it will touch your heart,
 
We all need some encouragement from time to time?
When we’re feeling stuck or when we’re faced with an unprecedented challenge, it’s often helpful to read a few words of encouragement to not only encourage ourselves, but to inspire us to be an encouraging force for others.
 
To celebrate the power of women everywhere, I’ve rounded up 21 of the most encouraging quotes and scriptures... and put them together for a daily devotional with a journal prompt for each day.

Kindness
As I struggled pushing the wheel borrow full of horse poop up the icy snow packed hill to dump it this morning... I decided to keep my attitude positive...I needed to look for the good in the snow. Thus this post which is to help me keep my thoughts right today. Maybe it will inspire you too.
⛄️⛄️⛄️

🥰Kindness is seeing the best in others when they cannot see it themselves.
😍Kindness is being someone who makes everyone feel like a somebody.
💞Kindness is loving yourself enough to love those around you.
💖Kindness can make a bad day good and a good day better.
💗Kindness is caring for others even when they may not care for you.

Ephesians 4:32
Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.

Galatians 5:22-23
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

Colossians 3:12
So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience;

Proverbs 3:3
Do not let kindness and truth leave you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart.
