You are an example.


Whatever you do every day…do it with an example. It is so important to remember that how you act, how you speak, how you treat others, and how you love…shines brighter than anything you can ever imagine. You are the example of Christ. You represent God’s love and power. The way you face adversity is what people will notice the most. If they watch you draw closer to God, when they expected you to fall apart, they will be encouraged. We are the ones who will lead other’s to salvation, by showing people how much peace and hope is within our own lives because we completely trust in God.

Most people do not know how to trust. It is something that has to be learned. We have been hurt by people in our lives, and that hurt is painful. People are human, and the human nature is…well, human nature. We cannot rely on people to fill our hearts with peace, or carry us through the difficult times. We must learn to trust that God will provide all we ever need. We must develop a relationship with Jesus, and call on Him on a daily basis. Prayer and surrender are the keys to opening the heart so that it can be filled by Jesus. Practicing our faith helps us learn how to trust in God. Build your relationship, which builds your character, on a daily basis, and you will be fulfilled…and be filling others with inspiration along the way.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your path. PROVERBS 3:5-6

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. COLOSSIANS 3:17

God is with us.
