BE YOURSELF ~
Galatians 1:10 New Living Translation (NLT)
Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.
Philippians 3:14-15 King James Version (KJV)
14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.
I know who I am today in God. Throughout life things change and we wonder what is next. I have found if I just enjoy the day before me, I'm much better off. We are to plan for tomorrow and use wisdom in every decision we make but not forget to live in today. God has bless each of our lives, even if we think he has not.
Proverbs 3:5-6 New International Version (NIV)
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight
LEAN NOT TO YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING ~
Is thinking beyond limits for me. There are times when I think God isn't going to answer me and that is when I limit him. I know that he wants the best and opens my mind to trust him. A real friendship is one based upon trust and a time to speak, but a time to listen. God wants to be that friend to each of us. I find myself sometimes too busy to listen and that's when I need to stop and restart thinking.
As this new day begins, so does my prayers for you, your family and friends. I care and I know that sometimes it's hard to shut off your brain from negative or wonder, but it's so important to do this. God wants us to live in his power and know that he is working all things out. Keep the faith and hold onto his promises throughout the Bible. Our thoughts and actions matter each day of life. Purpose this a good day!
