We should not allow the stresses of life to infiltrate our being and cause
us to lose our Joy and our Peace. The Lord who suffered and died for our
sins and shortfalls has promised that all will be well and we are to rest
in His finished work on the Cross. The Lord declares in Philippians 4:6-7
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with
thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God,
which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through
We are to trust the Lord's command and have a cheerful attitude because of
God's eternal promise to His children. Be encouraged today to spread the
love that is within your heart and let others know of the peace that you
possess by being an example of what the Lord teaches.
I hope you are inspired and challenged by today's message to have the
attitude of praise and thanksgiving and share the love that is within your
heart with everyone whom you come into contact with.
Hugging is healthy. It helps the immune system, cures depression, reduces
stress and induces sleep. It's invigorating, rejuvenating and has no
unpleasant side effects. Hugging is nothing less than a miracle drug.
Hugging is the ideal gift. Great for any occasion, fun to give and receive,
shows you care, comes with its own wrapping and, of course, fully
returnable. Hugging is all natural. It is organic, naturally sweet, no
artificial ingredients, non-polluting, environmentally friendly and 100
Hugging is practically perfect. No batteries to wear out, inflation-proof,
non-fattening, no monthly payments, theft-proof and nontaxable.
Hugging is an underutilized resource with magical powers. When we open our
hearts and arms we encourage others to do the same.
Think of the people in your life. Are there any words you'd like to say?
Are there any hugs you want to share? Are you waiting and hoping someone
else will ask first? Please don't wait! Initiate!
By Charles Faraone
Hug someone today and every day thereafter because there is encouragement,
reinforcement, healing and a shown love that will last forever.
Read and meditate on these scriptures:
Ephesians 4:29-32 “Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth,
but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace
unto the hearers. And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are
sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and
anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all
malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one
another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.”
Galatians 6:2-4 “Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of
Christ. For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he
deceiveth himself. But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he
have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.”
Psalm 147:3-5 “He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
He telleth the number of the stars; He calleth them all by their names.
Great is our Lord, and of great power: His understanding is infinite.”
Romans 15:1-4 “We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the
weak, and not to please ourselves. Let every one of us please his neighbour
for his good to edification. For even Christ pleased not Himself; but, as
it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on Me. For
whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning,
that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.”
All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
