Choosing Friends

Proverbs 12 26 2

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. Take a look at who you spend the most time with and ask yourself if they are the type of people God would want you to be around. Are they equally yoked? Do they have the same values? Do they make your relationship with God stronger? Choose your friends wisely and strive to be a good friend too.

10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 8:  Thankful for Praise and Worship Music

Psalm 95 2

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 95:2

Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.

Today I am incredibly thankful for praise and worship music. Being able to praise and worship God through song is so uplifting and inspiring. No matter what is going on in my life at that moment whether it’s good, bad or indifferent it all just seem to melt away instantly as I begin to focus on God. It doesn’t just have to be at church. It might be at home or in the car. Sometimes I’ll be driving, feeling some type of way and the perfect song comes on the radio and it reminds me that God is always with me. When I sing along I feel connected to my Savior and am so grateful for His love and mercy and thankful for His presence in my life.
