God Is There
"The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee; and shall say, Destroy them." Deuteronomy 33:27
There should be someone in our lives we can go to and share the things we are going through. So many times we try to bottle everything in and keep it to our selves, and then the stresses of life catches up to us and before we know, we are totally stressed out. Stress can cause health problems, and physical aliments as a result of keeping everything to ourselves.
"Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world." I John 4:4
There is something special about a newborn and the innocence of a child that is a great blessing that God allows us to see. There is nothing like a smile of a little baby or the joy a child can bring to the most difficult situation just by their presence. We are God's children and He delights in us. We are so special and precious to God that He looks after us with His love.
“So the carpenter encouraged the goldsmith, and he that smootheth with the hammer him that smote the anvil, saying, It is ready for the sodering: and he fastened it with nails, that it should not be moved.” Isaiah 41:7
A champion in any sport or in any arena will testify that they did not become a champion on their own. It did not make a difference what the sport was, if it was an individual sport or a team sport there is always a support system in place to help build and make a champion. We may want to do some things on our own, and even think that we can do some things on our own without any help, but we quickly realize that any successful endeavor that we undertake it is going to require some help on some level.
Freedom In Christ
"If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed." John 8:36
Life can have a way of causing us to jump through hoops, and if we are not careful we can become so used to the hoops that instead of jumping through them we become attached to them. We can become tied to things and people who will have us connected to them forever if we are not careful.
