Lord, thank you for your word of truth that is the guidepost for our daily living. We have victory because of the vision you have unveiled through the scriptures set in place to direct our every action, words, thoughts, and steps. You didn’t leave anything for chance. You have provided every opportunity for us to prosper. Thank you for the powerful affirmation that you are faithful to be the same yesterday, today, and forevermore. Your word never manipulates, your word never throw shades of deception, your word never steers us wrongly. You our Father provides us the plans, purpose, passion, and principles to pursue in our life’s journey. Thank you for never leaving or forsaking us. Thank you that whether we choose to veer away from your loving embrace you do not stop being there with us. Thank you that in those moments where we become determined to do it ourselves; you still stay constant in our lives and ready to wrap your loving arms around us when we inevitably falter. Thank you for just being the one friend who sticks closer than any person in our lives. You love us unconditionally! Father, it is so wonderful to know that all throughout our lives we can be confident that what you say and what is written does exists to be manifested into a real, tangible, and actionable precept to live by personally. Thank you for the encouragement of your word that continues to propel us into our life’s purposes, passions, and pursuits. Thank you Lord!
Your words that remind us that what you say equals what you do. Likewise, we need to follow your ways so what we say reflects that same action. Lord, continue to create in us a clean heart so that we will delight you with obedience and faithful lives. Let us daily affirm your words to be how we focus every thought and commit our every action. Help us Lord to embrace these truths and then live them accordingly in our lives – now and forevermore! So Be IT Indeed!
Some truths to live by so we can have a life full of power, peace, and promise:
- Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. Proverbs 18:21
- Whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.. Phil 4:8
- And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith. Matt 21:22
- So shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:11
- Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Mark 11:23
- But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” Matt 4:4
- For “Whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit; 1 Peter 3:10
Lord, you provide us such a rich life and I acknowledge your graciousness in our lives. You want the best for us and realize that in order for us to live a life more abundant we must be reborn out of death into your marvelous light. You want us to be empowered to be strong and courageous – regardless of what we encounter along our way. You remind us that no weapon that tries to form against us will have any significance because of YOU GOD! You prepared the avenue for our eternal life through your son Jesus Christ our sacrificial brother who laid His life down so that we could have our lives picked up to be reborn out of darkness into righteous light. Thank you Jesus for your willingness to lay your life down, get beaten down, take on every wicked thing, and fight that good fight for us so that we could become separated from the enslavement and detriment that sin snares us by. Lord, you have given us the chance to say YES to your will and YES to life. You give us the choice to CHOOSE LIFE! So, thank you for that free will to be able to be liberated from death eternal into life eternal with you! Thank you Holy Spirit for being our constant friend who does provide the guidance needed every step of our way. I am grateful and aware that with you ALL THINGS are possible to us if we just have faith.
I ask you to continue to bear fruit in my life. I ask that I can be a living testimony. I ask forgiveness for all of the thoughts, words, deeds, and whatever is still trying to remain hidden and kept under wraps to not be dealt with. Father, uncover the hidden agenda that do not align with your truths. Let my life not be moving in a direction that is contrary to the path you laid before me. That pathway is full of “hoped for” living. The best life living. The reaping good things living. Let me have that life and that life more abundant living truly and fully revealed in my life while I exists today and forevermore. Let this word be the word I meditate upon day and night:
Philippians 4:8-9 The Message Version
8-9 Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.
Psalm 119:105-112 The Message Version
105-112 By your words I can see where I’m going;
they throw a beam of light on my dark path.
I’ve committed myself and I’ll never turn back
from living by your righteous order.
Everything’s falling apart on me, God;
put me together again with your Word.
Adorn me with your finest sayings, God;
teach me your holy rules.
My life is as close as my own hands,
but I don’t forget what you have revealed.
The wicked do their best to throw me off track,
but I don’t swerve an inch from your course.
I inherited your book on living; it’s mine forever—
what a gift! And how happy it makes me!
I concentrate on doing exactly what you say—
I always have and always will.
Colossians 3:17 The Message Version
15-17 Let the peace of Christ keep you in tune with each other, in step with each other. None of this going off and doing your own thing. And cultivate thankfulness. Let the Word of Christ—the Message—have the run of the house. Give it plenty of room in your lives. Instruct and direct one another using good common sense. And sing, sing your hearts out to God! Let every detail in your lives—words, actions, whatever—be done in the name of the Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way.
Faith Speaks and it is so… Prayer of Purpose, Promise, and Praise!
Yes, Lord I come to you acknowledging that with all things i must yield willingly. This submission is not slavery but liberation from a way that would weigh me down. You have taken your time to create me – your personal masterpiece and I desire that you continue to mold me into that shining work of art that only you can produce. I know I am stubborn and like to do things my own way; but the reality of the matter is that my ways led me into messes 100% of the time. So, Lord thank you for every time you have nudged me back on track where I can focus again on the plans, purposes, and precepts you present for my prosperity. You knew me while I was naturally unborn in my mother’s womb and you spoke life to me then. Thank you. So, Lord I rededicate the life you have blessed me to have back to you so that I can continue on this journey without a hiccup or hindrance. Lord, thank you for removing all illusions, distractions, and doubts. Thank you for making it plain for me when I ask. Thank you I don’t have to flounder around aimlessly but I have your word(s) on the matter that guide me into all wisdom and understanding. Thank you Lord! Furthermore, I just continue to praise you in my own way. I am not restricted by man’s status quo of how I should present my personal praise to you! NO WAY will I be stifled and not allow my voice – whether in writing or orally be shut down, choked out, or deterred by the message that you have placed in my heart to share. I agree that I am a work in progress. I may be timid at times but you don’t care about my shyness all you care about is my willingness to be faithful and obedience. That is the only thing that makes you smile is a faithful and obedient Miriam. So, Lord in the times I have slighted you by not giving you a faithful and obedient Miriam I repent and truly ask that you work in and through me so that I can remain committed to your promises, purpose, and principles. Lord, let my life of praise transparently reflect your word of promise. Truly, Father you are the Greatest of All Times! Truly Lord there is not one that can even compare to your awesomeness. Again, I humbly provide this passage to praise you for the being Great I AM.
You know Father all creation recognizes your omnipotence – You God have ALL Power – Resurrection Power:
1 Corinthians 6:14 King James Version
14 And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power.
You are everywhere and that’s a comfort to me because I am never out of your reach or grasp. Thank you Father for being omnipresent:
Psalm 139:7-12 The Message Version
7-12 Is there anyplace I can go to avoid your Spirit?
to be out of your sight?
If I climb to the sky, you’re there!
If I go underground, you’re there!
If I flew on morning’s wings
to the far western horizon,
You’d find me in a minute—
you’re already there waiting!
Then I said to myself, “Oh, he even sees me in the dark!
At night I’m immersed in the light!”
It’s a fact: darkness isn’t dark to you;
night and day, darkness and light, they’re all the same to you.
Lord, I give you praise because there is not one thing that gets by you. It is so relieving and comforting to have you Father – the one who knows me inside and out by my side as I go along my life’s journey. Thank you that you know the very number of hairs on my head. You know how many stars are in the sky and how many grains of sand are on the beaches. There is nothing that you are not aware of and nothing will catch you off guard. I thank you Lord for this attribute of being omniscient.
Psalm 139:4-6 The Message Version
139 1-6 God, investigate my life;
get all the facts firsthand.
I’m an open book to you;
even from a distance, you know what I’m thinking.
You know when I leave and when I get back;
I’m never out of your sight.
You know everything I’m going to say
before I start the first sentence.
I look behind me and you’re there,
then up ahead and you’re there, too—
your reassuring presence, coming and going.
This is too much, too wonderful—
I can’t take it all in!
Psalm 147:5 New International Version
5 Great is our Lord and mighty in power;
his understanding has no limit.
Lord, I thank you that you are not unaware of every minuet detail of our lives. There is nothing hidden from you eyes or ears when it comes to our life. We have assurance from your word that our life matters to you and for this I am grateful. I do not need to take for granted that there is absolutely nothing that will hinder you from being in tune with what concerns me. You created me and know me inside and out! Thank you Father for this steadfastness that you have towards tending to all of my needs. I rely on you wholeheartedly. God you know me and know who I am!
Matthew 10:30-31 The Message Version
Forget About Yourself
29-31 “What’s the price of a pet canary? Some loose change, right? And God cares what happens to it even more than you do. He pays even greater attention to you, down to the last detail—even numbering the hairs on your head! So don’t be intimidated by all this bully talk. You’re worth more than a million canaries.
Jeremiah 1:5 The Message Version
5 “Before I shaped you in the womb,
I knew all about you.
Before you saw the light of day,
I had holy plans for you:
A prophet to the nations—
that’s what I had in mind for you.”
Isaiah 46:10 New International Version
10 I make known the end from the beginning,
from ancient times, what is still to come.
I say, ‘My purpose will stand,
and I will do all that I please.’
Revelation 1:8 King James Version
8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
Revelation 1:8 The Message Version
8 The Master declares, “I’m A to Z. I’m The God Who Is, The God Who Was, and The God About to Arrive. I’m the Sovereign-Strong.”
Lord, this time you and I have had this morning is refreshing. Thank you for always downloading your words into my heart and allowing them to be revealed through the writings of a blog post. However, you desire expressions to come through me…I say thank you and yes I say “use me” the way you need to so that your message can be written, visible, and undertaken. I am your scribe.
Habakkuk 2:2-3 The Message Version
2-3 And then God answered: “Write this.
Write what you see.
Write it out in big block letters
so that it can be read on the run.
This vision-message is a witness
pointing to what’s coming.
It aches for the coming—it can hardly wait!
And it doesn’t lie.
If it seems slow in coming, wait.
It’s on its way. It will come right on time.
Lord, as this post concludes, let your words ring true in our hearts, minds, and actions. Let your truth enable our tongue to speak life. Let your truth propel our hands to create life. Let your truth continuously be the meditation of our thoughts. Let your truth become the manifested legacy for our families now and forevermore. Let your truth change us to never remain the same. No more carelessness. No more self-centeredness. No more stubbornness. No more haphazardness. No more lethargies. No more idolatries. No more hindrances. No more faithlessness. No more disobedience. Just NO MORE! And now yes to MORE LIFE ABUNDANT! N.O.W. = New-Beginnings is Our Witness. Yes, please to your refinement, refreshing, rebirthing, rejuvenation, and redone in and through us. Thank you!

Matthew 5:18 The Message Version
Completing God’s Law
17-18 “Don’t suppose for a minute that I have come to demolish the Scriptures—either God’s Law or the Prophets. I’m not here to demolish but to complete. I am going to put it all together, pull it all together in a vast panorama. God’s Law is more real and lasting than the stars in the sky and the ground at your feet. Long after stars burn out and earth wears out, God’s Law will be alive and working.
Matthew 5:18 King James Version
18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
As, I thank you to be able to see another sunrise; I am constantly reminded that others may not have been able to do so. Lord, it is important to never neglect your good news message. Maybe this will be the only time that one comes across the opportunity to be encouraged, inspired, and challenged to be better, live better, make better choices, and have a better life moving forward. With that said, I invite everyone to choose this day to be determined that with God life is better. Without God life is bitter. The difference in those two words are the second letters. One has “E” for Eternal LIFE and the other has an “I” leading to Ignorance, Indigence, and Insistent-Indiscretions. All you need is the guts to actively remove the “I” in our situation and replace it with the “E” with the reward that the Eternal God our Father does know exactly what He’s doing, how to do it, and gets the job done 100% of the time. I encourage you to muster just a small amount of faith to believe your life can become new with purpose and promise fulfillment. One step at a time, one day at a time, one breath at a time, one thought at a time. Just one choice at a time and it can start with this first choice today:Better versus Bitter – THE Choice is Yours!
Isn’t it time for you, me, all of us to live our best lives! Let’s shift it into a gear for next level living where we are actually obtaining the “hoped for good” in our lives. Time for us to achieve the bucket list of goals we once thought were so far off and removed from our grasps. We can and will do this one step at a time, one dream realized at a time, one conversation at a time can spark the fire needed to fuel our promise fulfillment! Amen INDEED!
Let the conversations ensue and the shifting occur for our next level transformation into what we were born to do – live life and that life MORE Abundant here on earth as it is in heaven.
The Thankful Revolution rejoices with you and looks forward to continuing to encourage, edify, educate, and inspire as we traverse along our life’s pathway and choices. Enjoy the journey!
