Verse of the Day: Isaiah 26:4
Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal.
Building trust takes time. The more you get to know God, the more your trust in Him will grow. When you truly trust in God you will experience the perfect peace that comes from knowing that God is in control. Worrying doesn’t change a thing. Instead, focus on getting to know God and let of go of worry and let God have His way in your life.
Verse of the Day: Matthew 18:20
For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.
What a blessing it is to be able to pray for and with your sisters in Christ. Calling upon a friend and ask them to pray in unity with you to collectively make your request known to the Father helps you to build stronger relationships with each other and with God. Get a prayer group going among your friends and reap the benefits of praying together.
Verse of the Day: 1 Thessalonians 5:11
Therefore, encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
We may not be able to solve everyone’s problems but we sure can be an encouragement to everyone by spreading hope. Share the love of God, pray with each other and for each other. Use your words to build each other up not tear each other down. Be a friend and a blessing to those in need (we are all in need).
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 really 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.
