Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ. Romans 10:17
I do not know how many of you may journal or jot down things you like to remember in a small notebook or maybe in some cases the palm of your hand, but I do. Some of the thoughts I recently jotted down were "think straight, chill out,calm down, Godly thoughts, judging must stop, get a clear head, stop acting on impulse." Maybe you can identify with some of those or have made your own list of things to work on in your own life.
It is good to set goals in your walk with the Lord. None of us are perfect and we all fall short of God's glory as it says in Romans 3:23. Nobody has all the answers. Preachers and priests aren't always the ones with all the knowledge either. Each of us is responsible for growing in Christ on our own and a good start is making sure you devote time to being alone with God. I find the best time is morning. Be still. Open the word and read it perhaps starting in the book of John. Ask God to reveal to you areas of your life you need to work on.
Our journey with the Lord is a daily one. There will be ups and there will be downs. Always remember to not attack people but to pray for them. All of us have our own issues and God died for all our sins. So your job is to work on yourself and look to Jesus.PRAYER: May my life make a difference in the lives of those around me. May I never cause anyone to stumble or go astray. Let my thoughts and actions bring glory to you and you alone. In Jesus' name. Amen.
