2 Timothy 2:22-24
“Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts. Again I say, don’t get involved in foolish, ignorant arguments that only start fights. A servant of the Lord must not quarrel but must be kind to everyone, be able to teach, and be patient with difficult people.”
Temptations come at our weakest moments in life. It looks good and harmless but it’s very deceiving. When we find ourselves in God, he can help us to stay away and lead a righteous life. The people that we hang with can lead us down the wrong path so we have to be strong enough to say no and not be pressured into sin. We have to show the love of God and not get caught up in the foolish things of this world.
” Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering , for he who promised is faithful”
God doesn’t lie. Whatever he promised you he will fulfill. It may not look how you think it should and it might not come they way that you imagined. We can’t allow doubt to slip in a rob us of our blessings, joy and peace. Always depend on God because he is faithful.
” For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”
Happy New Year Ya’ll!! We pray that this new year will be the beginning of a new life for you! Trust in God that he will provide for you and make all things new in your life.
Life is full of lessons that teach you to move forward and be our best selves. Some lessons we learned as children and some we learned as adults. Either way they made us in to the people we are today. Here are some that we have learned…
Keep God first and keep Him in everything you do
Life is what you make it
Love is pure and it should come from the heart
People will talk about you whether you are doing good or bad… they just have to have something to say
Work hard and smart
Be humble…it will take you further in life
Take pride in what you do and who you are
Don’t take people for granted
Show love to everyone because you never know what they are facing in their lives
