John 14:6 New International Version (NIV)
6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me
BEGINNER ~ it's time to stand out!
Something inside of me, keeps trying to fit into certain lives and I can clearly see that I was never meant to fit in. I guess it comes from my childhood days and feeling left out. God has a plan for each of us to stand out. Every friendship we might want, it not healthy of us. Pray for healthy friendships.
I read the quote by Dr. Seuss and it says we are meant to stand out. Then I question myself, am I standing out and making a difference? It takes time to think upon things and allow God to move into the center of your heart. Then it comes time to realize that God's plan is bigger than I think. As I began to pray for healthy friendships, God started sending people into my life. Plus, I saw the real friendships I had for many years. There are people who just stand by you and sent by God. Each day is a new day we begin again to do the right thing in life.
2 Corinthians 5:17 New International Version (NIV)
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
STANDING OUT ~ is to be different
God has not meant for each of us to be the same. He doesn't want us to compare our lives and try to fit in where he doesn't want us. He wants us to be ourselves and step into his plan. I never thought I would be teaching a Wednesday Class for women for over 10 years now. Nor did I think I would be writing a daily blog to you. I know my purpose is to encourage people and show kindness in all I do. Yet, I have days that are hard just like anyone else. We are human and need to remind ourselves to be kind and live according to the Bible.
Ephesians 2:10 English Standard Version (ESV)
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
Colossians 3:10 English Standard Version (ESV)
and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its creator.
2 Corinthians 5:17 English Standard Version (ESV)
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
You not a beginner anymore. Speak words of life, I am valuable and important. Time to give some praise and thanks for another new day. As you encourage yourself, you will feel better. Say this: I can do anything I put my mind too. I will purpose this a good day!
My prayers continue for you, our families and friends.
