Heavenly Father, into your hands, I place my worries, cares and troubles. Into your wisdom, I place my path, my direction, my goal. Into your love I place my life. Amen.

When we remember God's faithfulness and His ability to bring good out of any situation, we find our fears calmed and our confidence renewed.

When we are in deep trials, sometimes we want to give up and not to move on. But God said I am bigger than your problem.

The finest hour in our life is when we have done good things to nameless people without expecting them to remember our acts of love and kindness.

The mathematics of life is not the multiplication of wealth but the division of task, the subtraction of greed, and the addition of humility.

When a person is consumed by concerns that have become anxieties, the peace of that person is destroyed. It is through trust in prayer -- knowing that someone greater than we holds our lives in His hands -- that will give us internal peace. - Bishop Chito Tagle

A person entrusting everything to God always has beautiful thoughts that no room remains for anxieties and worries despite life's difficulties.

You are my God. You trained my eyes to see the beauty of life. You tuned my ears to the music of your spirit. You opened my mouth to sing your praise. You renewed my mind with the wisdom of your word. You filled my heart with the pureness of your love. You clothed my soul with the riches of your grace. You are the light of my spirit. I thank you and praise you because you are my God.

Each day is full of reasons to praise and thank God even when life seems empty of comfort or joy. It's when our cups are empty that God fills them up. Real happiness comes not on achieving big things but enjoying the simple blessings in life.

Be thankful for yesterday because you have wonderful memories to think about. Be thankful for today because you are able to wake up to celebrate life. Be thankful for tomorrow because you will be able to fulfill your dreams and wishes. But most of all, be thankful to God for He was with you yesterday, He is with you today, and He will always be with you tomorrow and forever.

The beauty of life does not depend on how happy you are, but how happy others can be because of you.

If you want to feel rich, just count all the things you have that money can't buy. - Lauren Huston

The Lord will never leave you nor forsake you. WIth long life the Lord will satisfy you and show you his salvation. Surely goodness and mercy will follow you all the days of your life and you will always dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Blessings God has given us. Eyes not to insult but to look beyond situations. Mouth not to criticize but to speak the truth. Hands not to punish but to give help. Ears not to be insensitive but to hear voices in pain. Everything God gives us has its own purpose.

Start to speak blessings to yourself everyday. Say, in Christ I am happy. I am protected. I am guided. I am healed. I am healthy. I am strong. I am filled with the Holy Spirit. I am deeply loved. I am extremely blessed. Draw strength from these words. Believe, receive, and be empowered.

Nothing can take the place of knowing your purpose. Each of us has a purpose for which we were created. Our responsibility -- and our greatest joy -- is to identify it. In the coming days, know what questions you can ask yourself to help you identify your purpose.

The Lord is watching nearby to give us His grace and send us His love. Whatever our cross, whatever our pain, God always sends a rainbow after the rain. Never a weakness that He can't feel. Never a sickness that he can't heal. Never a sorrow that he doesn't share. Moment by moment, we're under Jesus' care.

There's a luggage limit for every passenger on a flight. The same rule applies in our lives -- the lighter the luggage, the easier our journey.

When we remember God's faithfulness and his ability to bring good out of any situation, we find our fears calmed and our confidence renewed.

If you are on your way out and it starts to rain, at least you don't have to water the plants.

If today you are picking grapes, tomorrow you will be drinking wine.

If you ask for apples and you get lemons, make lemonade.

Every day is a blessing! Gifts don't come on special days. They come day by day. Open your eyes and see how God loves us, not by material things,, but from the goodness of the people around us.

Bible reading can be habit forming. Regular reading can cause loss of anxiety and fear, decreased appetite for lying, cheating, stealing, hating, anger, and envy. Symptoms include increased sensation of love, joy, peace, compassion and contentment. If symptoms persist, just praise the Lord!

This is life. It can never be absolutely happy. It can never be perfectly made. Sometimes it makes us cry, suffer. But it will make us stand and learn that no matter how difficult it is there will always be many reasons to live.

God doesn't promise to overflow your bank account, but promises to provide for your every need. Paul Chappell

When you feel like quitting, ask, Did God stop doing good in my life? If not, then why should I give up?

God always repays caring acts. It may not be with money or goods, but more often he repays it with happiness, health, friendship and love.

No one is hopeless whose hope is in God.

There is no failure more disastrous than the success that leaves God out.

Understand how God has beautifully added one more day in our life -- not because we need it, but because someone else needs us.

Give it all to God: your past regrets, your present problems, your future ambitions, your fears, your dreams, your weaknesses, your habits, your hurts, and your hang-ups.

Put God in the driver's seat of your life and take your hands off the steering wheel.

Don't be afraid. Nothing out of his drive can ever be out of control.
