God Is. 

My daily gratitude today is also in the form of a prayer or pronouncement. I came across in reflection time.  It connected deeply with me in what I do with the gratitude posts: find God in ordinary moments as I do in extraordinary times.  I pray you are blessed and challenged as you read this today. And I pray that you find yourself declaring what “God Is” in your life!

GOD IS. God is light that kisses dark skies, signifying a new day has come.

God is kisses your spouse gives you in the morning, declaring God’s love is present and powerful. 

God is hugs you give your kids as you send them to new possibilities, to learn fresh lessons of faith.

God is strength within to help you rise in the morning to lead others to redemption, when rising is
sometimes difficult.

God is joy in sorrow, happiness in harassment.

God is triumph in the face of terror.

God is victory in spite of the vicissitudes of life.

God is. God is. God is.

Go with God.
