Walk in the ways of the Lord. Seek after His love that you may not be found wanting the corrupt things of this world. Paul taught, “Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.” When Jesus is in our thoughts we will desire His will for our lives and others. We will want less of us and more of Him. In church, we are instructed on how to live by the Word of God. It is then up to us to live for Jesus each day of our lives. Seek after Him and you will discover the joy of the Lord. Pray often that you may be filled with gladness. When you are troubled, you will find peace, through prayer. God will lift you up and give you hope. His love will carry you when you need Him most. The same love will overflow within your lives to others, the more you seek the Lord. For His love was never meant to be kept to ourselves. It was meant to be shared. To love the Lord is to love our neighbor. God calls us to “be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love.” When we are active in our faith to God, we are putting down our slothful nature and are “fervent in spirit; serving the Lord.” God will be with us as we read the Bible daily. The words are alive and will speak to our hearts. The Holy Spirit will give us a greater understanding of God’s love for us. Rejoice this day in Christ. For His love has given hope to mankind. If you are “patient in tribulation”, you are promised eternal life in heaven.
I am so grateful for God’s mercy. Because of the cross, I am forgiven from all my sins. Jesus has cut down the chains of addiction in my life. I am no longer a slave to fear but am alive in Christ the Lord. I am a child of the Most High. In temptation, God safeguards me from the evil one. Through prayer, God helps me choose what is good in His sight. Each day that I look to Christ, my desires are only to serve Him. Reading the Bible gives me strength to live couragously for Him. The light of Christ shines bright in my life and lifts me up. I can walk straight because Jesus is by my side. His love overflows into the lives I touch. Oh Lord, may your love continue to strengthen me and others through me. May your light shine bright within me that others may see and seek after You. It brings me great joy to live for You, Jesus. I pray that You will be by my side till the end of time. I am honored to proclaim Your message of hope to the world. Whatever it takes I will go the extra mile for You. You are worth more than all the world could ever offer. You are rock upon which I stand. I pray that I can draw closer to You every hour. Have your way within me. I want less of me and more of You. I am alive in You. Nothing can take me away from Your love. You are the light that burns bright in my heart. You are my strength. In death, I will run to You, my King. I praise Your Holy Name. I love You, Lord.
