Heart. Just. Melted.
Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.
(1 Timothy 4:12)
No matter what happened yesterday, or even five minutes ago, God is waiting for you with open arms. Don’t let the enemy condemn you and lie to you today. God is not mad at you. He loves you and longs to restore everything in your life. Confess your sins to God and allow Him to cleanse you today. Choose to forgive others so that you can receive God’s forgiveness. Ask the Holy Spirit to keep you close so that you can live a life pleasing to Him. As you draw close to God, He will draw close to you and show you His great love and blessing all the days of your life!
Christ is not just something that makes our life better. He is our life!

Aren’t you glad that your troubles and trials are only temporary? In fact, today’s verse tells us they are momentary. Compared with eternity, our troubles don’t last long at all! As you stand strong in faith during times of adversity, scripture says that you are achieving eternal glory. When you confess your trust and reliance on God, you are passing the test.
If you are in the middle of tough times today, look to Jesus! The Bible says that He is the Author and Finisher of your faith. He is the one who writes faith on your heart and then develops it to completion on the inside of you. Your part is to open your heart and choose words of faith and victory.
Remember, your words set the course for your life. As you remind yourself that your troubles are only momentary and confess your trust and hope in Him, you will see His hand moving in your life. Focus on that eternal glory every day. As you do, you’ll move forward in victory and experience all He has for you!
“you have heard it said, you shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy, but i say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. for if you love only those who love you,what reward is there in that?” - Jesus Christ
God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19, NKJV.)
When the people of Israel were in the desert on the way to the Promised Land, God gave them manna to eat. That was good. It sustained them for a while, but it wasn’t permanent provision. Eventually, the manna stopped coming. The people had to move forward, and then God gave them quail. They were so excited. That fed them for a while, but it was also temporary.
See, God gave the Israelites temporary provision on the way to the Promised Land where they would have permanent provision. The fact that God had something much greater in store for their future is what kept them moving forward. God could have sustained them with manna or quail, but God is a god of increase. He works in seasons, and He always has something better in store.
Don’t get stuck in a rut and think that one way is going to last forever. Instead, stay open and be willing to change, make adjustments, make corrections or try something new. If the “manna” stops coming, don’t get upset. Just keep moving forward and be on the lookout for the new provision God has in store for you!
Prayer for Today:
Father God, You alone are the just and faithful God! Thank You for always providing for me. Thank You for leading and guiding me. I trust that You have good things in store for my future and choose to keep my eyes on You in Jesus’ name. Amen.
But God came to His wandering and straying creation and said, “No more.” The Word became flesh and as He lived and healed us of everything He spoke at His end saying, “It is finished.” The Word was the resurrected Lord. He has come to give good gifts to mankind and to bring them back to fellowship and communion with a God we had alienated ourselves from. Praise be to the Holy Trinity who picked up the straying lambs and carried us home.

There are only two possible answers to this question:
- We do not believe in the Gospel, we are just pretending.
- We don’t care if our friends go to hell.
God keeps putting this thought on my mind. I’m convicted, but I don’t just want to be convicted. I want to be moved. You can read this post…

I reblog this image about once a month even as my own image, as if it just makes one person think twice……
Just never do it - It’s ruins everything and you can’t just stop like you would think. It’s an addiction that you won’t ever really get over. It’s will be with you for life. You might end up stopping but it will always be on your mind next time things turn bad or go wrong.
JUST PLEASE THINK FIRST.
