STATE OF MIND
Father God, we come to You today thanking You for being Lord!
As our youth and children end the school year and begin their summer activities, keep them safe and continue to cover them with Your blood.
Please give them the ability to know when the enemy is deceiving them.
Let them know that nothing is bad enough that they cannot come to You and to us to keep them safe.
Let them know that we love them and only want Your best for them.
We thank you for keeping their minds and bodies safe in You.
May their activities be productive, fun and memorable.
Fill their days with joy.
Please forgive us for our sins and give us a heart of true repentance.
We thank You for Your grace, mercy and love!
In Jesus' mighty name, Amen!
I make mistakes but God Love me inspite of the all. He even forgive me when I ask. He hold no ill intent towards me.
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 8:35-39 NIV

Love That Touches Your Heart
Bible Reading: Daniel 10:10-11, 19 Don’t be afraid. … for you are deeply loved by God. Daniel 10: 19
WHEN YOU DIG down into your heart, you find that your deepest human need is to be loved and to sense you belong to someone.
You might know in your head that you’re loved. After all, the Bible makes God’s love for you stunningly clear. And someone very near to you-a parent, boyfriend or girlfriend, or close friend-has probably said those little magic words, “I love you.” But hearing about love isn’t enough. Do you feel loved? See, only when your understanding of love hits your brain and your heart do you feel you really belong.
John 1:12 refers to God’s love by declaring that when you received Christ you became God’s child. Knowing that fact isn’t enough, though. You need to wrap yourself in its truth and experience it. Try on these truths too:
You might be growing up around people who say they love you or who show their love by things they do. But that love might not convince you that you really are lovable, that you are wanted, that you belong.
God, with his unchanging love, wants to grip both heart and mind so you feel loved. You can personalize Daniel 10:19 by saying: “God loves me deeply. I don’t have to be afraid or insecure. I’m lovable.”
REFLECT: What does it mean to you that God Loves you deeply and eternally? Do you sense God’s care for you in surrounding you with his unchanging love?
PRAY: Take time to thank God for what he has shown about himself to you.
