So many will leave their homes with a gun strapped on, but to neglect the heart and mind of a believer in Christ is worse. We must be renwed daily by the scripture and our time in prayer.
If you are a Christian I challenge you with this. How is it you can't leave home without your pistol, but you can go days or weeks without opening the sword of truth. I'm no greater than any of you, but it is my practice to keep my Bible close and read, even small sections at a time throughout my day.
This is one practice that won't disappoint or leave you feeling vulnerable to the world.
Take a few moments out of your day to read portions if scripture and then set aside given times for study and prayer to dive in deep!
#30daysofthanksgiving #3 I'm so thankful for my parents deciding that their eternal life was a priority and in turn, so is mine and the kids. Because of our security in our Salvation through Jesus Christ, we don't really fear death. (We fear living without those we love!) We know where we are going. And, I like to think that because of that, we can have a sense of humor to help us cope with the sorrow of losing someone we love. It helps when my Dad labels his important papers with such helpful information. Because of their decision to put Jesus #1 in their lives, He's #1 in my life. That means I'll get to see them for Eternity and that's parenting done right!
I dont know whats wrong with me. One second I will be smiling chating with my best friend, next I want to die, I wish for someone to kill me, because I am a coward and cannot do it myself. Ok everyone says that your life matters, there are rufly 7,420,000,000 people in the world. Why would it make a difference if one was gone. Thousands of people die each day and I will to, so why not speed up the process. Dont get me wrong your lives matter, you are strong and getting through this, you reach a new record of living everyday. But that is not me, I do not deserve this, I dont deserve sunny day nor my best friend. I need to die. I would try to talk with my friend about it, but everytime I would feel like she is annoyed or disappointed, without knowing. I feel like I would ruin everything between us if I ever told her. Am I a terrible friend for keeping this secret, just so we stay friends?
