In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success.
I am old enough now to appreciate everyday of life. Just knowing that God loves me makes such a difference in my life. I can turn that around and know that I love God too. I believe that my life makes a difference and I do my best daily to live according to the Bible. I volunteer at my granddaughters school and I see how the little kids like me. I see the smile on their faces and their words are kind. I might never see somethings, but I can see how my life makes a difference to them.
GOD FIRST ~
Put on the full armor of God daily
Ephesians 6:10-18 New International Version (NIV)
The Armor of GodFinally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
Putting on the full armor of God daily, brings protections to our minds and souls. Just doing the right thing can be hard at times, but still a must. The devil goes about trying to destroy our lives. His job is to distract us from God's word (Bible) and take our thoughts far away from truth. The Bible has scriptures of hope and peace to live by in life. So much can change suddenly in life and we are left with thoughts. Thoughts are powerful and important.
Purpose to guard your heart and mind agains the schemes of the enemy (Devil). Purpose good thoughts and making this a good day. Life is so short and we never know what one day will bring. Bring the word of God into your mind and soul. Your life makes a difference and never doubt that. Each day is a new beginning of greater things than yesterday.
My thoughts and prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
