A man of many companions may come to ruin,
but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
As a child, I heard about Jesus and that he was a friend. I wasn't sure the big picture of that or even who Jesus was to me. It would be years later that I would know the true meaning of his name, what he did and continues to do for everyone. I found out that Jesus was the light I was looking for in life.
John 8:12 English Standard Version (ESV)
I Am the Light of the World
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
YOU CAN COUNT ON ME ~
Do you have someone in your life you can count on? You know, that person who will sacrifice things to help you. I do have a family and many friends like this. I know that some people are only a call away and they show me how much they care. Jesus is that kind of friend too. He is able to help in all times and someone we can count on in life. Jesus gave it all for each of us and we can give our all back to him. Speaking positive over life and living a life of freedom in him.
Everything will not turn out perfect, but it turns out better with faith in God. The bible says:
Romans 10:17 New King James Version (NKJV)So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
We must purpose time to open the Bible and read it. A book that is a roadmap to life and to Heaven. Living kindness to others is a choice because sometimes that is very hard. I know I can count on the word of God to help me spur up hope within my heart. Scriptures that give life to my soul and a reminds me of God's faithfulness too. Bible isn't just a book, but a book of life.
YOU CAN COUNT ON ME ~
I see how people count on people with titles. For examples, Pastors, Teachers, Doctors, Nurses, Counselors and the list goes on. They are people who study and purpose time in growing in their profession of life. They purpose to help others and we learn we can count on them. We learn to trust them or we move on to a different doctor, church, counselor and that list goes on. We must know that their advice is good advice and that sometimes takes time. I have learned the people in whom I count on in their profession and my personal life.
KNOW THIS ~
YOU CAN COUNT ON GOD
I was once young and didn't realize how God truly worked. I didn't really put him in my heart and trust beyond limits. As I have watched him guide my life, I see how my own choices made a different. I see how God has grown me into a stronger adult and a one who see's though the eyes of God. Living kindness is my choice but I still make mistakes of life. God is faithful to always be there for me and I do my best to be their in ways for him to use my life. Giving God all the honor and glory for my life. I continue to learn daily.
There is a song counting on God and I love it. I know I can count on him and he can count on me. Daily choices are important and we must carry the character of Jesus in all we do. It's my choice and I hope your choice too. Purpose time with God today and see how much better life can be. Let God count on you too! It's a great day ahead because he has created it. Thank you for taking time to read my blog and passing it on to someone today. It feels great to be able to count on each other in life.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
