Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal.

Therefore, encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.

Verse of the Day: Philippians 3:10
I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death
There is a difference in knowing about someone and knowing someone and there is a difference between knowing what someone does and knowing who someone is. You may have known about Jesus all your life but until you seek Him with all of your heart you won’t really know him as your personal Savior. You won’t have a personal relationship with Him until you start spending time with Him. The more time you spend with Him the more you will become like Him. You have a friend in Jesus, start getting to know Him.
Verse of the Day: Proverbs 22:24-25
Do not make friends with a hot-tempered person, do not associate with one easily angered, or you may learn their ways and get yourself ensnared.
It’s clear that our friendships can have an influence on us, either for good or bad. It’s important to choose the people who are close to us wisely. Choose Godly friends that will be a positive influence in your life instead of people who can’t control their anger with whom you may eventually find yourself in a bad situation. A bad temper is contagious.
Verse of the Day: Proverbs 12:26
The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.
Choosing the right kind of friends is actually a big deal because whether you realize it or not, you become like the people you spend the most time with. Surround yourself with people who encourage you and make a positive impact in your life. Your friends should inspire and motivate you to do good and be a better person. Choose your friends wisely and strive to be a good friend too.

Verse of the Day: Psalm 30:4
Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people; praise his holy name.
Have you ever noticed that no matter what is going on in your life singing praises to the Lord always makes you feel better?

Make singing praises to God a part of your day and you will definitely start to see a change in your mindset and attitude.
Verse of the Day: 2 Timothy 4:17
But the Lord stood by me and gave me strength.
Doing the will of God can at times be lonely. Not everyone will understand or support what you are doing. That’s why it’s important to surround yourself with likeminded people. Even so, there may be times when you still feel alone and it may feel like everyone has deserted you. But, know that you are not alone the Lord, your God is with you. He is on your side and he will give you the strength to carry out his purpose.
