The Six Fix: Inspirational Quotes Jodi Sta. Maria Lives By that Will Help You Keep the Faith

Jodi Sta. Maria is an actress who epitomizes versatility at its finest—proof? The way she brilliantly transitioned from the joyous and bubbly nanny Maya dela Rosa of Be Careful with My heart to the elegant and vengeful Amor Powers in Pangako Sayo, and just recently, to the torn-between-two-lovers Chinggay Villanueva in the blockbuster movie The Achy Breaky Hearts. And with all these blessings that have come her way, Jodi is quick to give thanks to God. On her Instagram account, Jodi expresses how grateful she is for everything that is happening in her life, good or not so good by posting these inspirational quotes and bible verses.  

 

May this week bring you to where God wants you to be. His plans for you are best. ??

Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits…” Psalms 103:2 Here’s a challenge for you: Sit down with a pen and paper and count your blessings. List everything the Lord has blessed you with. Write down everything you can think of. I hadn’t done this exercise in years, but I felt prompted by the Holy Spirit to do so. As I began to write, tears began to flow, and by the time I reached blessing number 30 I was on my knees thanking God. I knew God has blessed me, but I had forgotten how much He has blessed me. That’s a lot of us today. We know we have been blessed by God in many ways, but we forget just how much. We must no longer compare our lives to someone else’s life. Just because you don’t have the life or the things that someone else might have doesn’t mean God hasn’t richly blessed you. It’s time to count your blessings dear, then bless the Lord. Prayer: Father God, I thank you for every blessing you have given me. I bless you right now. I won’t complain or compare, because you have been good to me. You have been gracious. I may not have all I want, but in you, I have all that I need. I bless you Lord! Help me stay reminded of your goodness and grace in my life. Help me remain thankful everyday. In Jesus’ name, Amen. ?DOTK Devotional?

The writer of Hebrews writes that an essential part of a believer’s worship is praise and thanksgiving. In this passage, praise is called the fruit of our lips. Our speech comes from the abundance of our hearts. Our hearts are penetrated by those things that we meditate on and think about on a daily basis. When we diligently meditate on God’s goodness and love towards us, we can be thankful towards Him in any circumstance. We can thank Him for both the good things and the hard things in our lives, because we know that in the end He will be glorified through it all. In what areas of your life are you failing to speak praises to God? What hard things are you experiencing that prevent you seeing God’s goodness, presence, and love in your life? Will you begin today to thank God for every good thing in your life, no matter how small? Will you begin today to thank God for every hard thing in your life because the hard things expose his mercy and love for you? Father God, I thank You for Your goodness, Your grace, and Your mercy in my life. Forgive me, Lord, for focusing on the things that are wrong in my life and missing Your amazing presence. Lord, take full control of my thought life, and let Your power rule over me. Let the fruit of my lips be sweet like honey and not tart like lemons. Lord, my desire is for thoughts that are pure and holy so that my words will reflect You. Lord, redirect and renew my thinking so that I may experience Your joy and peace no matter what my circumstance. In Jesus’ name. Amen. ?Love God Greatly : Growing Through Prayer?
