"The Joy of the Lord is your Strength: Sweet One"
As I just got in from my morning class at college, I just was sitting here thinking to myself I'm not alone because Jesus lives in me, and how precious is that, and I wanted to remind you how loved you are, sometimes we don't feel loved, but trust me you are sweet one. DON'T let the enemy tell you that you aren't loved, that is a lie from the pit of hell. I come against that thought right now because it isn't the truth, I received a precious word yesterday over me that brought so much peace and Joy over my heart. "Jesus never rejected you" Never even begin to think like that. So life throws us unexpected battles after we receive such a promise from God. For instance a decoy comes into your life, which tries to distract you from the Peace of God, yeah that happened to me. Thankful for my sweet pastor mommy for helping me through that. Its important to remember that our Pastors no whats best , and they are just looking out for you and loving you just remember that. They are in authority. Also it could be a friend that keeps telling you that you've changed, because your not around them much anymore. We have to be careful when people are just using us, and everything revolves around them. That isn't a safe friendship. Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals." 1st Corinthians 15:33 Just want you to remember your sweet and loved, and be careful when you don't have peace God will show you. Listen to that still small voice.
Importance of Friends:
Proverbs 11:14 Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.
Proverbs 17:17 A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
Proverbs 19:20 Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom in the future.
Proverbs 24:5 A wise man is full of strength, and a man of knowledge enhances his might,
Proverbs 27:17 Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.
"God called us apart from the rest of the world"
Correction is good, it helps you become a stronger person in the word.
"No your authority by listening to your pastors, don't be erased, stay with them. Pastors are precious"
Don't hunger or get distracted, trust God.
Just something short and simple; Have a blessed Monday (:
