Prayer: YOU ARE SPECIAL It is important to know who you are in Godís eyes. God wants you to see your worth, your value, so He has written a love letter to you called the Bible. When you fill your thoughts with the truth God gives, you have an image of a very special person. YOU! God tells you there: I love you Ė John 3:16 I know you by your name - Isaiah 43:1 I sing over you Ė Zephaniah 3:17 I am with you always Matthew 28:20 I want to adopt you. Ephesians 1:5 I sent my Son to die for you. John 3:16 I have plans to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:17 I am preparing a home for you. John 14:1 The paradox God tells you is, if you want to gain your life, you need to lose it. God is the One who gives you value, purpose, direction and importance. He gives it His way. When you give yourself to God, sharing your time, career, and effort, you will find life and purpose. Your example is Jesus. Jesus served others, even though He is the King of Kings! Jesus washed the feet of the disciples to show them an example of serving. He touched the leper and healed him. He spoke to a Samaritan woman and gave Her hope. Pour yourself out, give of your time, your effort, your talents. Focus on others and their needs. Commit yourself passionately to a cause. God promises that the more you give, the more will come back to you. Luke 6:38 Give and it shall be given to you, pressed down, shaken together and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure you use, it will be measured back to you. God says we can test Him and see if He will not open the windows of heaven in blessings so there will not be room to receive it. Malachi 3:10 Are you willing to try life Godís way? Joyfully, Joyce
