Strengthened in the Faith

Colossians 2 6-7

 

Verse of the Day:  Colossians 2:6-7

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

 

As believers in Christ we must strive for spiritual maturity. We cannot grow without first being tested. If we are rooted in Christ, when trials come our faith will be made stronger when we trust in the Lord and continue to be thankful for His goodness and mercy in all situations.

A Cheerful Heart

Proverbs 15 15

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 15:15

All the days of the oppressed are wretched, but the cheerful heart has a continual feast.

 

You can choose to be worried and troubled or you can choose to trust God and be happy.  The way to a cheerful heart begins in giving thanks to God in every situation. You can always find something to be thankful for even if you have to look a little harder.
