God Wants Me Happy is our new name. We've grown from Depression No More! as a declaration that frees one from the grips of depression. A group of people that recognize that depression is a form of mental bondage that attempts to block the blessings of God over our lives. We are a group of people who, united together believe God for healing and trust Him for deliverance in this area.
How fitting to spend today's 30 minutes reading, thinking about and spending time with God concerning a prayer!?
You've worked your spiritual muscles and taught yourself how to go to God every single day. Continue and watch Him work in your life!
I love you and God loves you so much more.
May He grant you out of the riches of His glory, to be strengthened and spiritually energized with power through His Spirit in your inner self, [indwelling your innermost being and personality], so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through your faith. And may you, having been [deeply] rooted and [securely] grounded in love, be fully capable of comprehending with all the saints (God’s people) the width and length and height and depth of His love [fully experiencing that amazing, endless love]; and [that you may come] to know [practically, through personal experience] the love of Christ w…
For your 27 Minutes today, meditate on this exhortation.
My prayer is that this word encourages you to live your life to the fullest in Christ Jesus.
Break down a verse at a time and apply it to your life. Pray that God will give you the strength to live according to this word. Ask for forgiveness for the times that you've fallen short, even if it already happened today. Ask God to show you how to walk in love and peace towards every single person that you see. Ask God to plant this word in you. Read this scripture out loud. Write it out so that you will remember it.
Don't forget to thank God for Him being God, for Him giving this Word, for His Son Jesus and for the Holy Ghost.
God bless you today! It's a day to rejoice in God because He made this day and allowed us to see it! For 25 minutes today, give God the glory that He deserves. Tell Him thank you. Think about His goodness. What is He doing in your life today? What visions has He given you concerning your future? What has He done for you already? Bless Him with the gift of your voice and your mind. Lift your hands and surrender your heart and your life to Him. Tell Him how Great He is. The scripture describes how loving and good God is. He keeps us, He satisfies us with blessings and more blessings. God bless you as you thank Him today! Thy mercy, O Lord , is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds. Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy judgments are a great deep: O Lord , thou preservest man and beast. How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings. They shall be abundantly satisfied wit…
By now, your 24 minutes with God might be completed. I've tried to post but I'm so full! My heart is filled with nothing but praises to our God!My children Joi and Anthony, are both High School graduates! That may sound small to some but for me it's everything. If you really know me and my family this is an accomplished goal that was far from easy to obtain. God is amazing! When you give your life, your family and your home to Him, He WILL make the difference. We've been through so much. Each of us have our share of testimonies about how much we lost, how many people left on their own, how many are no longer here with us, how many times God made ways over and over again. We all have our stories, but I can say, my story is simple...IT'S GOD! I owe God my life! He took us through audio many storms and battles without a scratch. I thank Him everyday! I can't praise Him enough. God is the lover of my soul! I thank Him for His blessings.
It's late in the day. I've spent time with God off and on today. I've enjoyed a great conversation or 2 about His goodness. It's been a blessed and busy day. It is time to stop everything and spend 23 solid minutes with our Father. An eye-opening scripture about 1 of the greatest gifts that God has given us is what I looked at today. Eye-opener: Sin leads to death. There's no way around it. If we continue in sin, death is the end result. How do we stop sinning? Get closer to God. Spend time in His Word. Obey His Word. Pray. Pray. Listen and pray more. Ask God for the strength to not sin. The Gift: Eternal Life with Christ. Face to face contact with the ONE who died to save you, Who loves you, supplies your needs and cares for you. 23 Minutes isn't enough to thank God for His wonderful gift to us.
This is the scripture that God gave me for 2017. I'm so happy to share it with you today.
For 22 minutes, read this scripture, meditate on it and pray to God about it for your life. While Jesus gave us these instructions, the results of obeying these words is you having peace and pleasing God. We can't live like Jesus and act like the world. Its time for us to mature in God!
Love you and I'm praying for you.
“Love your enemies! Do good to them. Lend to them without expecting to be repaid. Then your reward from heaven will be very great, and you will truly be acting as children of the Most High, for he is kind to those who are unthankful and wicked. You must be compassionate, just as your Father is compassionate.
Luke 6:35-36 NLT
Live Like Jesus! On this 21st day of June, we are spending 21 minutes with God. Ask the hard questions today...How do I live and love like Christ does? What do I have to give up so I don't miss the mark? I pray that you make time to hear God's response so that it's s not just the 1st Day of summer, but the 1st day of your new life. Be blessed today!But those who obey God’s word truly show how completely they love him. That is how we know we are living in him. Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did. 1 John 2:5-6 NLT#growaminuteadaywithgod#getgrowing#depressionnomore#time2bhaphaphappy
God is a great God! He keeps us through the hardest of times and blesses us abundantly on time!
In 19 minutes today read Psalm 31. Can you relate to things going really wrong in life? When everything was said and done do you recall how God still blessed? This chapter putts God in front of our issues. God Is our Rock, He keeps us, He brings us out. The Psalmist praises God with this wonderful scripture...
Psalms 31:19 (KJV) Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!
My prayer is that you spent time not only with your earthly father today, but that you took time to say...Thank YOU Heavenly Father for being the greatest Dad ever! After all, He's created your earthly father, He created you. He will be there when your earthly father isn't our can't be there and always will. Give God the praise He deserves!
May the LORD bless you today. I pray that these 17 minutes will leave a lasting impression in you to want to know God more and more. For 17 minutes, spend time with God focusing on having a deeper relationship with Him. It's s good to know about God, but it's so much better to know Him. Paul's prayer is for us to have a better understanding of God. As you read, meditate and pray about the scriptures you start recognizing the voice and Will of God. You don't have to struggle to hear God's voice or know what it sounds like when you're spending time with Him daily. Ask for Him to speak and then get your bible, pray and LISTEN. Ephesians 1:17-19 (KJV) That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is th…
For 16 minutes today, spend time with God praying about your giving. Thank God for all He gives to you. Ask God to show you who to give to and what you give them and do it. Sometimes we have to give until it hurts, but don't worry, God promises that He'll take care of us. What can we give to God? Obedience, praise, our surrender. The bible says...Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
Luke 6:38 KJV
God bless you today as you spend 15 Minutes With God! It's so important to be humble. Don't get the 'big head' because you serve God. Don't look down on others who don't. Remember that God is loving. Jesus didn't and doesn't look down on others. He looks at all of us with compassion. Compassion moves you to help someone. If you look at a person and have no desire to help them, you've looked wrong. This is a lesson for everyone of us. God help our eyes and our hearts. This scripture also helps us to realize that we can all be tempted. The greatest preacher to the person who has touched a bible for the first time can be tempted. Jesus was tempted and overcame by the Word of God and so can you today. Speak the Word of God when you're tempted. Start praising God for the strength to withstand and not succumb. Thank God for being your help. 1 Corinthians 10:12-13 (KJV) Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall. There hath no…
14 Wonderful minutes to spend with God today! When I think of the goodness of Jesus! I have to thank God! Here's a scripture that you can read and find plenty to thank God for.
Did you know that absolutely nothing can separate you from God? Yes, we suffer because we love God, that is a fact. The devil and the world have no desire for you to follow Christ and have a prosperous and eternal life, so they make every attempt to destroy you.
Wouldn't it be just like the God that we serve to keep us through every problem, situation, temptation, trial, accusation and test? He causes us to triumph, overcome and conquer! He does this by giving us the fruits of His Spirit. In the midst of our situation, we manage to have love, joy, peace. We are able to endure, be gentle, keep the faith, be humble and have self - control.
God I am so thankful that NOTHING and NO ONE can separate me from Your love!
Romans 8:35-39 (KJV) Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? s…
Make a decision today to life the
new life that God has given you in Christ!
Stop living a life a sin. Live in
the freedom and power that Christ gives us. For 13 Minutes today, pray about
this decision. Ask God to show you what
you need to give up to walk in the newness that He’s given us. Ask God to help you to surrender what you
have held on to and for the strength to walk in your decision. Enjoy your new life without sin. It is possible through Christ! Here are 4 different versions of
this eye-opening, in-your-face scripture, Romans 6:13: 13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of
unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are
alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
KJV 13 Do not go on offering members of your body to sin as instruments
of wickedness. But offer yourselves to God [in a decisive act] as those alive
[raised] from the dead [to a new life], and your members [all of your
It's a Great Day to spend 12 Minutes Alone with God! Read this scripture and pray a prayer of thanks and praise to God for forgiving us, washing us and being the God of another chance.
Choose today to begin again. After you've asked for forgiveness, let that thing go and get away from it, in your mind and your body. Know that God has forgiven you and start over. Remind yourself that you are forgiven. If the sin pops up in your mind (which it often does), remind yourself that you're forgiven and that you have started over. Think about God forgiving you, read this scripture, pray and move on. Psalms 103:8-12 (KJV) The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever. He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him. As far as th…
11 Minutes today alone with God! You can do it! Take a look at what we're focusing on today...Jeremiah 29:11 (KJV) For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.Have you dealt with a problem or situation for a long time? Or, have you lived with a situation for years? In this scripture, the people of God had been in captivity for 70 years. Jeremiah went to God on their behalf and after 10 days this was God's reply. God has a plan for your life. 2 verses later tells us to seek him. Are you seeking God's plan for your life? Many times we go with our own plans and we find ourselves living with a situation longer than we should because we refused to seek God. Praise God for His plans for you! Thank Him because the plans are good! (Where else can you find that?) Repent for doing things your way. Ask God to lead you and then follow the way that He leads. God bless you today!
For 10 Minutes today, thank and praise God that you don't look like what you've been through! Thank God that today you are better, stronger, smarter and wiser because of His love for you! This scripture says He dresses us with His saving power and covers us with His goodness. Do you know anyone else who would do that?
I was a mess and I can still be a mess, but I'm so thankful that God chose me! I'm thankful and beyond grateful for how He blesses me. I'm not where I should be, but if you know me, I'm definitely not what I used to be. Thank YOU God!
Isaiah 61:10 (KJV) I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.
Are you growing?
Are you spending more time with God?
For 9 minutes today, spend your time today with God, meditating on this scripture...
1 John 1:9 (KJV) If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
The Amplified Version says it this way...
If we [freely] admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just [true to His own nature and promises], and will forgive our sins and cleanse us continually from all unrighteousness [our wrongdoing, everything not in conformity with His will and purpose].
1 JOHN 1:9 AMP
Be free! Let it go! Tell God about it. Ask for his help to stop and ask him for the desire to be right. It's between you and God... now work it out! Love ya!
Today was sad for me. I started the day with a headache, my house was not clean, my cat woke me to feed her. I couldn't get out of bed, but I did. After going to the bathroom for the 2nd time in 2 hours I found some energy to read Your Word. Thank YOU for letting me share with others what I learned and letting me understand what You showed me.
I made it to work. Thank You for traveling mercies. At work the headache moved into my back, neck and arm. Some things started going wrong. Work problems started and then the dreaded call. Things at home took a very bad turn. I ran to take care of everything that I could take care of as best as I could. I blocked back tears thinking about how the entire week lead up to this point. God please help us!
As I realized that I was helpless in a lot of ways I say down and dropped a few tears. I prayed and asked you to help us, cover us and bring us out of all of these troubles. You have me the strength to go back and finish my work …
Galatians 6:2 (KJV) Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
Thank God for every time someone came to your rescue. There were times in my life whiten people helped me and I never expressed the need. Thank God for people who listen and obey God when instructed to help others.
Pray and ask God how you can help someone today. Maybe you can sit with someone who's older and feels a little lonely. Maybe you can volunteer and help someone with their children. Volunteer to clean the church. Help at your local pantry. Carry your neighbors groceries. Invite someone to dinner and share how much God loves them. God will lead you to who you can bless if you are sincere.
Proverbs 3:5, 6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. ... How many times have we decided to trust ourselves and everyone else but God? How did things turn out? How many times did we decide, God I need YOU to do it, I trust YOUR plan? How did it turn out then? You know what happened. Thank about it a little longer if you need to. It blesses us to trust God with every single area of our lives and allow Him to lead us. We fall on our faces and dig deeper holes when we do it our own way.
Did you ask God to reveal the areas where you aren't trusting Him? I did. I'll tell you all about it in my next post!
Take 6 Minutes today to pray and meditate on this scripture. Ask God for forgiveness for every time you've chosen not to trust Him. Thank and praise Him for being trustworthy!
Is there an area in your life that you haven't trusted God with? Today, ask God to show you where you can trust Him more and commit it to Him. The biggest blessings come when you allow God to lead and guide you. He can only do that when you trust Him!
I pray that this is blessing you. Yesterday was EVERYTHING to me.
For 5 Minutes, yes 5 minutes, pray and think about how much you love God! Do you live him with all of your heart, soul and mind? Ask God to show you how to love Him more? Do you spend enough time with Him? Take 5 minutes praying about this or take 5 minutes to tell Him how much you love Him, that will please Him!
My prayer is that our 4 Minutes With God today will ignite a passion for God that will cause him to be magnified in the earth. I pray that every person that has set aside time for God today will see his power manifested in your lives, your mind, your family, your health, your home, your job and your wealth. I pray for 2- way conversations that you may hear and feel an answer from God. I pray that you have and receive the Power of the Precious Holy Spirit, in JESUS' name. Amen.
For 4 Minutes today we are going to pray about and meditate on this promise given by Jesus. Ask God for His Holy Spirit so that you will have power! Holy Ghost power is REAL power! It's that power that changes lives and situations, the way that we see things, it changes the way that we speak. When we have Holy Ghost power we speak what God says about us, instead of our own opinions and that's when we see the hand of God in our lives!
Throughout the day, let's put this scripture into action, tell someone about the awesome God we serve.
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Acts of the Apostles 1:8 NLT
For 3 Minutes today, talk to God about your plans. Either use some of that time or take another 3 minutes to listen to His plans for you. The bible tells us that when we commit our plans to God, He then causes us to succeed. This is because He hears our desires firsthand when we decide to go to Him about them first.
Let's practice talking to God about our plans 1st!
Proverbs 16:3 (KJV) Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.
