Good Morning Lord, Help me to cease striving and to trust that you will give me all I need today to do the work you’ve given me to do.
You will be faithful to complete the good work you’ve started, and as I step out into my day, I declare Your sovereignty over every area of my life. Amen.

My mother has a wise saying: “If you don’t lie, you never have to remember what it was that you said. If you have to recount a story or experience, it’ll simply be the truth over and over.”
It’s a simple concept, but more often than not, one we struggle to adhere to. Take the next opportunity you have to stretch the truth, and resist that temptation. Shoot straight. Enjoy the freedom and peace of mind that results. (thedailyverse.com)
A faithful witness does not lie, but a false witness breathes out lies. Proverbs 14:5
The key to the effectiveness of this passage requires us to make a decision – if the temptation is there, God will always provide a way of escape. We have to chose to use it. (thedailyverse.com)
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13
Sharing Hope: He arrived and saw God’s grace in action there, so he rejoiced and urged them to remain faithful to the Lord, to maintain an enduring, unshakable devotion. Barnabas truly was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit, full of faith. A very large number of people were brought to the Lord. ~ Acts 11:23-24 (VOICE)
