Windows Down Weather by Angela Moran

Tuesday, May 3, 2016

May the LORD bless you and protect you.  May the LORD smile on you and be gracious to you.  May the LORD show you his favor and give you his peace.  Numbers 6:24-26 NLT

When’s the last time you went for a nice, relaxing drive?  Can I invite you to join me, just for a moment? 

Imagine… we’ve rolled down the windows and the nice warm wind is blowing.  It’s not as glamorous as it sounds… I am driving a mini-van after all.  But, in this moment, feel that deep sense that everything is going to be alright.  I’m going to just take a moment to breathe in the blessing found in Numbers 6:24-26 and thank God for it. 

May the LORD bless you

I am thankful for the blessings of my husband, children, family & friends.

and protect you

We avoided the flu and all those nasty viruses.  Free from car accidents & physical injuries.  Thank you, Jesus!

May the LORD smile on you

I take a moment to visualize God the Father and Jesus the Son… smiling upon me.  I remember the Scripture…

The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.  Zephaniah 3:17 ESV 

Now I’m the one that’s smiling.

and be gracious to you

Oh thank You for Your grace, LORD.  I’ve blown it a 100 times today and will do so many more.  Thank You that Your mercies are new… every morning… every day. 

May the LORD show you his favor

So much undeserved favor… a successful business, a job promotion for my husband, children who are expressing interest in community with other believers.  I am humbled.  And thankful. 

and give you his peace

Right now, the sun is shining and the wind is warm.  But I know the weather changes quickly.  Give me Your peace. 

Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:7 NLT

Now, it’s your turn.  Take a moment to pray through the Scripture.  Thank God for His blessings, protection, smiles upon you, grace, and peace.  Enjoy the ride through life, dear friend.  Thanks for spending some time with me today.

Dear Jesus, thank You for my dear sisters who are reading this today.  It just amazes me that You connect our hearts through this amazing blog.  Thank You for fellowship and Encouragement Cafe!  You smile upon us and warm us with Your love, affection and acceptance.  Thank You Lord for being so good.  We love You.  Amen.
