Romans 3:22-24 New International Version (NIV)
This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe.There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.

To live to do things right in life
I often talk about missed opportunities in life. We might be so excited about going to an event and miss chances of talking to others. God bring lives together for a reason and in your own silence, there are missed opportunities to share happy thoughts and even about Jesus. Have you ever wondered what people think of you in a group and then you are just silent? I have and later that night, I will go over the evening and realize I missed opportunities to talk. I think it is because I sometimes don't know what to say and I don't want to say the wrong thing.
Guess what, God wants to use my words and your words to spur one another on in life. Your voice does matter and you are making a difference in lives. I felt to share this today and encourage you just to be you. In being you, ask God to mold you into a person who will speak up when the time is right.
Hebrews 10:23-25 New International Version (NIV)
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

A new day brings words and encouragement to others, plus ourselves
Be the one who speaks up about Jesus and his loving kindness. The day is filled with so many mixed emotions and the big wonder of why sometimes. Let us not forget that God is the giver of life and the one who wants you to live in a land of joy, happiness, forgiveness, grace and his mercy. There is so much joy in more day if we count blessings. There have been days when I only see the negative and it was a struggle just get up. My soul wasn't resting in God's purpose for my life, but in my own purpose of not believing and pressing forward.
We often think we know someone but down deep, there is a story that is unwritten. The story of struggle of a kid, a teenager or an adult. The scares of yesterdays seen to shine brighter than the stars of overcoming the past. I know this too well. But God, comes to rescue us and take us into new thoughts plus new beginnings! That is something to shout praise about in life.
This blog is my three minute of sharing hope to you. My story is real and overcoming is my choice. I choose to write you daily because I care and I pray. I know that prayer makes a difference and I know there was a time I didn't even want to pray for myself. God in all his goodness, sent others onto my path of life to share the light with me. That's amazing to me and that's is true love. I hope you see yourself the way God does and live in this day. God created you and you are making a difference even if you don't see it. Purpose this a good day and share a smile with yourself plus others.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. Thank you for taking time to read this.
