Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God. Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God. Blessed are the merciful, For they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled. Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted. “Blessed are the poor in spirit, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Thank you for Your Presence with me today. You don’t look at me with disgust or disappointment, but You are eagerly awaiting us to seek You for assistance in our lives. You comfort us in our grief, You smile with us and at us through strangers, and You give us hope when we witness the transformation of another. Every moment of each day, You are with us; give us eyes to see and ears to hear.
