Start the Day Right

Here’s a little prayer based on one of my absolute all-time favorite Bible passages: Galatians 5 …

Good morning, God!

Please walk with me every step of the day and fill me to overflowing with your:

Wednesday Worship

Studies show that people are more stressed and depressed on Wednesday than on any other day of the week. Here’s a lovely little Psalm to help lift your . Pray through it at least 834 times today.

I will give thanks to you, Lord,
with all my heart;
I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.

Listen

The Lord said,
“Go out and stand on the mountain
in the presence of the Lord,
for the Lord is about to pass by.”

Then a great and powerful wind
tore the mountains apart
and shattered the rocks before the Lord,
but the Lord was not in the wind.

After the wind there was an earthquake,
but the Lord was not in the earthquake.

Happy Labor Day!

Take a break from all your labor. Now. Seriously. Please.

Listen to Jesus:

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28)

Sunday Solitude

Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16)

Be like Jesus. Get alone with your Heavenly Father right now and pray.

Here’s a rather simple little prayer for today. Unplug from the world, take a deeeeeep breath and pray through every syllable with all your heart, soul and mind. And then walk with God every step of the day.

Other One Anothers

It’s _____ ONE ANOTHER WEEK here on GUWG, where all week we’ve been looking at how the Bible says we should fill in that blank.

So far we’ve filled it in with LOVE, ENCOURAGE, FORGIVE, SUBMIT and SERVE. Here’s a greatest hits list drawn from all the other one anothers throughout the New Testament. Meditate on each one and ask the Holy Spirit to help you live ’em out.

SERVE One Another

It’s _____ ONE ANOTHER WEEK here on GUWG where all week long we’re looking at how the Bible says we should fill in that blank.

Today’s word? SERVE. Here’s our key verse:

Serve one another in love. (Galatians 5:13)

The ancient Bible-y word for “serve” in this verse was douleuo, which actually means “performing the duties of a slave.” In other words, we’re called to put others’ needs way way waaaaaay above our own.
