"Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; 2And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour." Ephesians 5:1-2
A father was trying to put together a dollhouse for his daughter. He looked at the picture on the box, and looked at all of the pieces that came out of the box, and began to assemble the dollhouse. As he got about half way through he realized that something was just not right, the picture on the box did not look like what he had assembled thus far.
Give It All To The Lord
"Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved." Psalm 55:22
There are going to be times in life when are going to have some hills we will have to climb, and there are going to be times when we are going to have to face some valleys that are very low. There are even going to be some times when we are going to feel like the weight of the world is on our shoulders and we will fell like giving up and not going any further.
Nothing Can Shake My Faith
"The faith that you have, keep between yourself and God. Blessed is the one who has no reason to pass judgment on himself for what he approves." Romans 14:22 (ESV)
As Christians our faith should be important to us. It is our faith that is the foundation for everything we believe. It is our faith that sees us from day to day, and from situation to situation.
The Lord Is Always Near
"Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:" Isaiah 59:1
We have each found ourselves in some situations that we got ourselves into, but could not get ourselves out of on our own. It was in those moments that we had to call on someone to help us to get out of what we got ourselves in.
