It is a book filled with instructions of life
When you buy something that needs to be put together, you need to read the instructions. You take the time to process what the item looks like. Taking it from 1 to 10 to see the final product. I can totally relate this to the words within the Bible. 2 Timothy 3:16 speak about ALL scripture is given for instruction in righteousness.
As we go to church and learn of God, we are to be careful and know the Bible for ourselves. Not everybody that goes to church, acts upon the word of God. There are people in churches, but not everyone believes the same way. I've seen a lot in my life and I have learned to read the Bible for myself. I have prayed that God would send people into my life, that lives the word of God. I know many people who are true Christians and live their daily lives according to the Bible. Each of us have made our own mistakes in life and needed to ask God forgiveness. We should have confidence in those who lead us, but we should have wisdom also.
Hebrews 13:17 New International Version (NIV)
Have confidence in your leaders and submit to their authority, because they keep watch over you as those who must give an account. Do this so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no benefit to you.
The Bible speaks of leaders who will give an account for their words and actions. I have learned to be careful what I say to someone and never judge a life. It's not my job to be God but to live according to his plan. Jeremiah 29:11 A plan, A promise and A future is ours. We need to believe and hold fast to peace of mind.
Romans 12:1-2 New International Version (NIV)
A Living Sacrifice
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
HELP US TO FIGURE THINGS OUT
Your example goes further than you might know. I was telling a story of a person who knew my name, but I didn't know them. They had head about me and said that I would have good advice. I began a conversation with this person and it was a divine appointment created by God. I know my words made a difference in her life and I knew that God guided me in that. I have been around a long time and I do have wisdom in many ways. I have allowed God to use my uglies in life to bring help to others. It's not just by words, but by actions too!
How about you today? What are you in need of today and asking God to help with in life? Speak words of faith and allow God to speak to you through people. Ask him to send people into your path today and just a word of encouragement matters. I know that people face hard days and better days. I know that sorrow comes and learning new normals happen. I know that God is greater than my yesterdays of life and today will be done according to his plan.
I've learned to release my thoughts to God's plan. Romans 12:1-2 above, mentions to renew your mind. Keep your mind stayed on the promises of God, the hope in a new day and victory is on it's way! Keep a positive mindset is important but your actions are important too. God does hears you and help is on its way, don't give up! Recall some great things today God has already done for you.
Grow in every circumstance in life and keep believing! I'm thankful for people who live by example and do their best daily. Don't be so hard on yourself, because life is a process and change can be hard. I just believe greater is on its way for you! Remember that somethings in life need two people to put it together. A friend can help us figure things out and guides us with instructions too. I care about you, your family and friends. I write you today to share hope and prayers!
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends!
