Do you know you woke up to a gift today?
this very one,
is a gift
You are here,
and your Sustainer
has enabled you to be here
We tend to think we are self-sufficient, don’t we?
That all is because of what WE do?
God gifted you with today
– Susie Stewart
This is the day the Lord has made. Let’s rejoice and be glad today!
– Psalm 118:24 (GW)
This is the very day God acted— let’s celebrate and be festive! Salvation now, God. Salvation now! Oh yes, God—a free and full life!
– Psalm 118:24 (MSG)
Thank God for this gift too wonderful for words!
-2 Corinthians 9:15 (NLT)

We act sometimes
like people are our possessions
to be controlled
We act as if they should do our bidding
and it comes from a selfish heart
But God is the only One
who can safely have people as His possessions
We are His
because He created us
and because we were bought with a price
with the precious blood of Christ
His goodness flows to us
because of being under His God-sized umbrella of grace
How blessed we are to be
so lovingly called out of darkness
to be His own
– Susie Stewart
But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for He called you out of the darkness into His wonderful light.
– 1 Peter 2:9 (NLT)
Remember you are people who have been set apart for Him; He has chosen you to be His own possession out of all the peoples on the earth.
– Deuteronomy 14:2 (VOICE)
Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.
– 1 Corinthians 6:19,20 (NLT)
