Que bendición es tener un Padre íntimo e involucrado, que nos conoce plenamente y nos ama de la misma manera. ¡Vive en amor hoy! ¡Y vive con la plenitud de Cristo!
Oh Señor, tú me has examinado y me conoces. Salmos 139:1-4.

How “gentle” would those around you say you are? Though we may throw this question aside, thinking gentleness is of little necessity, it is interesting how vital Jesus says it is to our witness. Join us in praying for it below! And help us out by sharing the @DeclareGlory community with a friend - simply tag them into the comments.
Prayer from Philippians 4:4–7
“Lord, You are all around.
And where You are, reality changes.
So I take time and rejoice in that!
You have softened my heart and
Have breathed life into my soul.
With that in mind, give me a gentleness that is unmistakable.
Remind my thoughts to speak every word with intentionality.
For all around me are people in need of Your gentle Spirit.
They are found in a world that speaks pain and suffering.
But as Your child, I live from a different foundation.
Give me the boldness to speak authoritatively as You did,
Without unjust demands and full of gentle firmness.
Give me a love that stands firm even when my patience is waining,
And even when my stubbornness is surfacing.
Today, I will not work out of anxiousness,
For it thwarts my ability to be gentle.
Instead, I will be in constant communication with You,
Requesting for help and begging for assistance.
Be glorified by my spirit of obedience today.
For You alone, Jesus. Amen.”

None of us are spared from disappointments, from struggle, from hardships, or challenges. These things are universal and we all encounter them. But if we know that life will test us and try to break us how do we muster the strength to push through when darkness come? Philippians 4:6:7 tells us "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Whatever worry, struggle, challenge, obstacle you’re currently facing know that nothing is too great or too difficult for God to handle. How many times have you found yourself in situations or experiences you believed would destroy you, yet here you are. Alive and living. Today, give all your worries to God and trust that He will handle it. Just as he’s handle things in your past.
That breakup you thought you wouldn’t survive but did, that job you lost that resulted in a better opportunity, that friend who betrayed you and taught you to be more discerning all happened for your greater good. And if God delivered you from that why would he abandon you now? He won’t. You just have to turn to him and give him all your worries. Trust that He will handle it. Let go and let God.
Mark 11 "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
