10 Minute Tuesdays

God's word for you today:
Are we beginning to commend ourselves again? Or do we need, like some people, letters of recommendation to you, or from you? You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everybody. You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone, but on tablets of human hearts.
Such confidence as this is ours through Christ, before God. Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God.
- 2 Corinthians 3:1-5 : I never want to be a person that is constantly patting myself on the back, and saying, well done Denise, well done. Everything I am able to do, is because of my precious Father. I need to never forget that fact, He is my all in all. Without Him, I am nothing, except flesh and bone. With Him, I am a princess, warrior, conqeror, daughter, and very loved by my Father. The only one that I want to pat on the back daily, is my Father, and thank Him for all He is doing in my life. He alone is worthy of all my praise.

Good Morning Denise,
This is such a great post. We should all be a letter that is on the human heart. I am nothing without GOD either. Thru him, I can do anything. Hope you had a great Monday. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.
