Praying for someone is the ultimate act of love.
Colossians 1:9-12, “9 And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, 10 so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. 11 May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, 12 giving thanksto the Father, who has qualified youto share in the inheritance of the saints in light.”
We all reap what we sow. Sow goodness; reap peace. Sow anger; reap hate. Sow silence; reap indifference.
Luke 6:38, "Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”
Smile as much as you can. You will need them to dry your many tears.
During trials and temptations don’t linger in the why. Sever you your ego and realize it is not about you. It’s about what God is doing for you.
Philippians 2:3, “Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves."
Never feel unloved. Everyone is loved by someone. They may not tell you in words, but will show you in sentiment.
Want to know who loves you most? Jesus! Jesus is love personified and loves you in a way no mortal can.
Deuteronomy 7:9, “Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations,”
Best form of revenge is letting go.
Romans 12:19, "Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”
In all things, put God first. For on judgment day he will be your Only ally. Not the mortal beings and earthly possessions you have venerated before him.
Matthew 6:33, “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
Bitterness is the worst aspect of anger. It’s the sting of betrayal that when unchecked morphs into hatred. Acceptance relieves the sting of bitterness and opens the mind to the hope of new possibilities.
Capture and explore each moment of happiness you discover.
People desert others out of defense. To save ourselves from pain, we reject it. Being rejected by others allows us to experience our pain and their pain simultaneously. Remember when one door closes, another one opens.
