"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above (James 1:17)" Here is an excerpt from Chapter 14 in New Way Today's Book, "A New You!" Each chapter ends with a prayer and reflection.
New Way Prayer:
Dear Lord, You know there are times when I feel like I have nothing left to give, nothing to offer. You also know how often I fail to recognize all that You have given me and to thank you as I should. I thank you
Thank you for every good and perfect gift you give to me and my loved ones. Thank you for being there for me through good times and bad, even when I fail to recognize it, I know by faith that You are there.
Thank you for sending me Your Holy Spirit to strengthen me and guide me.
Lord, I feel that there is something special I can do, some purpose I have, some quality you have given me that you can use to serve others, but I'm not sure what it is. More often than not we see talent in others but fail to recognize it in ourselves. Please help me to see in me what You see in me, and to discover Your plan for my life, and follow it. Amen.
What am I grateful for?
When I pray, do I thank God or just ask Him for things?
Do I see God Himself as a Gift?
What am I good at? What are my spiritual gifts?
Am I a good listener, do I take time out for others, do I pray?
What is it that I want to be good at?
Do I pray to God to give me special gifts, or to reveal His spiritual gifts to me,
and to help me use these gifts?
How often throughout the day do I say thank you?

In honor of the feast of Christ the King, here is this beautiful and powerful scripture from Revelation 7:
"After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. And they cried out in a loud voice:
"Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.”
All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying:
"Amen! Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God forever and ever. Amen!”
Then one of the elders asked me, “These in white robes—who are they, and where did they come from?” I answered, “Sir, you know.” And he said, “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore, they are before the throne of God and serve him day and night in his temple; and he who sits on the throne will shelter them with his presence.
‘Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat down on them, nor any scorching heat. For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; He will lead them to springs of living water.’ ‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’” (Revelation 7:9-17)
