Stop Worrying, Start Serving

Matthew 6 27 2.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 6:27

Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

 

Worrying doesn’t change a thing and it sure doesn’t add any benefit to your life. Instead of worrying start serving. When you’re busy serving you don’t have as much time to worry. Focus on helping others and God will make sure your needs are taken of.

Take Care of Your Soul

3 John 1 2

Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.

 

Make sure you take care of your body, but don’t forget to also take care of your soul, good health starts from the inside.  Do things that make you smile and bring you joy.  Do volunteer work, it not only helps others, it makes you feel happy too.  Forgive, let go of anger and hurt so you can move forward.

The Lord has compassion on the weak and needy. We must also have a heart of compassion for those in need.

Let God guide you in how you can be of service.

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.

 

By showing compassion and kindness to those in need you’re sharing God’s love and mercy.  Let everything you do be done as if you are doing it for the Lord. Let God work through you to fill the needs of His people. Don’t wait for someone else to do what God has called you to do.

Hold On to Hope

Hebrews 10 23.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Hebrews 10:23

Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.

 

As God’s children we need to hold on to the hope of God’s promises knowing that He is always faithful.  God never changes His mind, He never forgets His promises and His Word is true for all eternity. God will never lie, deceive or mislead you. Even if it feels like He has overlooked you or feels far away, have faith and remember He is always with you and His timing is never late.
