Living for Him



Living for God. This should be our goal in life. Not to do what people expect or want from us, but to live for God. To be different than the world. To be a light.

However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.
Acts 20:24


We can trust God no matter what we face, and we can know that living for him is the right choice, even when things are difficult.

We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
2 Corinthians 4:8-9


We need to live for him in all that we do. We need to be strong and courageous and bold for him. We need to make the right decisions to help others, to do good, and to keep spreading God's light and love always.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Joshua 1:9

Every Day Is A Blessing

Every day is a blessing. Every moment is a gift. 


God is good every day. God is with us every day.

                              

We can trust God every day.


We can praise God every day. We should thank him for each day we are given.

Stand Strong

Stand strong. Even when everyone is against you. Even when you are afraid. Even when doing the right thing goes against what everyone is telling you to do.

Stand strong. Even when the world has gone crazy. Even when you feel lost and confused. Even when you can't see what is to come.

Stand strong. Trust in God. He will not let you down.

Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions.

Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God.

Psalm 70


Hasten, O God, to save me;
come quickly, Lord, to help me.
May those who want to take my life
be put to shame and confusion;
may all who desire my ruin
be turned back in disgrace.
May those who say to me, “Aha! Aha!”
turn back because of their shame.
But may all who seek you
rejoice and be glad in you;
may those who long for your saving help always say,
“The Lord is great!”
But as for me, I am poor and needy;
come quickly to me, O God.
You are my help and my deliverer;
Lord, do not delay.

Psalm 70:1-5 (NIV)

The Psalms are filled with comfort. It is great to read them when you are feeling down, or anytime.

I have many favorite verses in the Psalms. What are some of your favorite verses? What are your favorite Psalms?
