1Th 5:18 in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
I can't escape this verse today, it's a special lesson for me,
My specialist took pictures of my throat that he wanted me to see.
My left vocal chord, though weak, is performing quite well; I'm glad.
I aspirate liquids and this is a concern; I sip water, but only a tad.
The decision is mine, if I want to "eat" food the normal way.
The consequences are unknown; only doing it will I know if it's okay.
He suggested I stop the swallowing exercises, and see how things go.
I have done over sixty three thousand of them, so now It's time to go slow.
If my coughing persists, and troubles appear, then it's time to say "woe."
He stated that If I am doing well, and decide to keep it this way,
Just let him know, and he'll be here to help, and that without delay.
I thank the Lord for God's peace and grace, in such a time as this.
And I know full well that in any other mindset, I would be remiss. (RP)
THANKS FOR PRAYING

For there is not a word on my tongue, but behold, O LORD, You know it altogether.
There's nothing about us God does not know,
We try to hide something but it will always show.
God knows our thought before words are formed,
So we better be wise and to His will be conformed.
Ask God to guard your heart and tongue today,
So He is in control of everything we think and say. (RP)
It behooves us to watch our words. God knows right now everything you are going to say today. Please be careful. Thanks for praying.

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light.
Our spiritual history is given here in words so clear and plain,
We heard God's word,received His son; we were born again.
We are lights for Jesus, and are commanded to let that light shine,
Our desire is to live for Him and from this principle never resign. (RP)
Take a quick glance backward, and remember how it was before you met Jesus. NOW remember where you ARE, and HOW you are to walk. Thanks for praying.

But as for you, brethren, do not grow weary in doing good.2 Th 3:13
Sometimes we grow tired and weary, and we don't know what to do,
God tells us simply to not grow weary, but there's something else for you.
By doing good is the source of our strength so don't give up my friend,
Just keep on plugging working for Him and fully on Him depend. (RP)
You have heard the adage: Don't get tired OF the work, but you may get tired IN the work. I hope that's your opinion today. Thanks for praying.

Matthew 11:28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
We're all so very busy everyday; time seems to be not enough.
We plan our day, and want to do right, but time is gone like a puff.
Our tired lives are restless, and we work and feel deep pain.
And we get caught in the timeless trap; we don't know who to blame.
Jesus has the answer for us, if we will just take the time to heed.
Come to me, He sweetly says, and I will give you rest indeed. (RP)
How about it friend. Just accept Jesus' invitation, and you will see what He means.

Galatians 5:16 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
Sometimes we wonder why things are going wrong.
We have lost our luster, and we do not have a song.
It surely must be that we fail to walk as He directs.
So then, we are suffering the dreaded aftereffects.
Walk in the Spirit, dear child, He gently says today.
Keep in this path, and submit to Me; watch and pray.
Please check how you are walking and make an adjustment today. Thanks for praying.

1 Timothy 6:6 Now godliness with contentment is great gain.
Contentment is a desirable thing: most want it every day.
When you are totally committed to Him, it really does pay.
Just now you may have trouble with this; stop, and pray.
Let God control your life, and you'll be pleased all the way. (RP)
Encourage others today with your contentment. You'll be happy you did. It pays great dividends. Thanks for praying.

Col 3:17 And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.
I ask you now dear Lord above, to help me do this thing.
And with your help, it will work out, and glory to You bring.
May everything I SAY today, be done only in your name.
And may all I DO this day, dear Lord, be exactly the same. (RP)
As we go about our business today, may this simple poem be the heart-throb of our lives. Thanks for praying

Stepping out by faith is a challenge for many. You may be torn not knowing what to do next. Just give it all to Him, and He will direct your way. Thanks for praying.
By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going.
God looks for his people who will walk by faith, obeying His every command.
Taking them to places He chooses, following faithfully what is planned.
By-faith walkers go,not knowing end results; they are only asked to obey.
At the end of the journey an inheritance stands, all because they did not delay. (RP)
