One of the many things we can praise God for is His Word-the Bible.
His word gives us strength we are down and direction when we are faced with issues that affect our lives.
Deuteronomy 30:19 “This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life”
The above passage guided me through an exceedingly difficult period of my life.
Colossians 3:13 “Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.”
As I was studying a Sunday school lesson, I read those words. I had to reread them several times. They convicted me. I try to live by these words currently, so many years later.
Matthew 6:33 “But seek first his Kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
As a teenager, I first heard this passage in a Laity Day sermon at church. As a teen, I really did not understand what the person meant. As I matured, I learned that the words are true. “Seek First.” Should be our motto as well as our goal in life.
Matthew 7:7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you shall find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”
I have learned that all we must do is ask God and He will listen. We can seek His guidance and He will lead us to where He wants us.
