I need to remember this. Jesus is the ultimate lifeguard. Remember that next time you feel like you are drowning under the weights/pressure of life. Feel anxious - depressed - sad - lose someone you love? Take refuge in the arms of YOUR Lord.
"Keep on, then, seeking first the Kingdom and his righteousness, and all these other things will be added to you. That blessing comes when you seek His kingdom above all else and live righteously! A DAILY struggle, for sure!
Pray not because you need something but because you have a lot to thank God for. Thank God for what He'll do. Even if our prayers haven't been answered yet God either has something better in mind and He has the perfect timing.
The BIBLE - I will stand on the word of God and believe in it's truth. I will not be a "pick and choose" Christian, taking out bits and pieces I like and others I don't agree with. But will stand for ALL of the truth of the Bible, forevermore!
