A daily dose is what I need
to live my life more abundantly
to read God’s word
And always try
not to let a day pass by
without looking to God above
and asking for His help and Love
His path through all the crazy things
jumping through all the hoops and rings
I want to learn all I can
because I’m raising a little man
and a real princess, it is true
a daily dose makes me better for you
I start the day in the right direction
a healthy heart, focus, dedication
God’s word is the best kind of medication
I have learned to hear my mind
the devil tries so many kinds
of tricks and lies to steal my joy
the past is often his favorite toy
and I will always fight and try
to keep my focus on the Lord
for greater is his awesome reward
and when I win
against my sin
I humble myself by saying,” thank you”
for teaching me, loving me and seeing me through
another victory because of His grace
because of my faith I can face
all the struggles I battle each day
I bow my head, I ask as I pray
for that constant craving of your word
and the still small voice that’s powerfully heard
I’m grateful for the daily dose
A gift from God who loves us most!
My husband and I call North Coast Church our home. Sunday is our favorite day of the week! We get excited when there is only, “2 more days ’till church!” If you asked me 5 years ago if I would feel like that, I would have called you silly. The transformation God can make in a person’s life is absolutely phenomenal. I know because I am a changed person. We are so thankful for a church where we feel renewed and rejuvenated by our fellowship with His Spirit and our Christian family.
I love learning more and more about what it is to be a Christian. Going to church is like my life school. It teaches me how to cope with sin, treat my past, tackle my present and gives me hope for my future. I have an eternity to praise and live for the LORD. I will see all you Christians in HEAVEN. How mind blowing is it that eternity is going to be in splendor instead of sin. Learning more about God is learning more about living life more abundantly. There is nothing better than that.
One of my daily struggles is keeping the Devil at Bay. My mind is my worst enemy. My past comes back to haunt me at the most inopportune times. I used to get so caught up in the adrenaline rush. I am so glad that I can separate myself from that now. The only reason I can, is because of God. His forgiveness, grace, blessings and unwavering love for me has pulled me through really dark times. Now that I am a Christian, I have a new life and new Christian powers. The Holy Spirit lives inside me and God’s power exists as a part within me too. He gives me the ability to overcome the devil and his trickery, deception and sickness. I identify the evil tormenting thoughts as not my own, but as something completely separate from my new spirit in God. I am so thankful for this new pattern of thinking. It allowed me to get off the path of destruction and now on a path of hope. I pray for a never-ending hunger for more of God.
Our church offers us the opportunity to receive text messages every day at 6:30 am called the Daily Dose. All you have to do is text “daily” to 51400. When you click on the text link it takes you to a 5 minute message from one of the pastors at our church! I love that I have my daily dose text reminders. Even if I just read the short synopsis of the message, it still keeps me in a spiritual state of mind. It’s a great way to start the day!
Please enjoy the Daily Dose like I do. You will thank me for it!
It’s so amazing when a Bible verse just pops in my head. I really think that they come from God, and it is not a coincidence. So here is my pop – Psalm 34:14, and it works so great for this little life rhyme.
Psalm 34:14. Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.
