Daily Devotinal: September 1st
A Growing Relationshiop With God.
But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 2 Peters 3:18
Your relationshio with God is ongoing; it unfolds day by day, and it offers countless opportunities to grow closer to Him... or not. As each new day unfolds, you are confronted with a wide range of decisions: how you will behave, where you will direct your thoughts, with whom you will associate, and what you will choose to worship. These choices, along with many others like them, are yours and yours alone. How you choose determines how your relationship with God will unfold.Are you continuing to grow in your love and knwowledge of the Lord, or are you "satisfied" with the current state of your spiritual health? Hopefully, you are determined to make yourself a growing Christian. Your Savior deserves no less, and neither, by way, do you.
Daily Proverb- Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.
Thi s is the 1st post of the devotions I will be doing everyday. I felt like it was needed so that Fly Times would start seeing more and more people motivated. A lot of people are going through but what are you going to do about it. The days of pouting are over. Positive thoughts bring positive results. The past two years have been the best and the worst. Fly Times was established in December 2009. Thats my pride and joy. On the contrary I have dealt with a break in 3 months in, a DUI where I was sentenced to a year in prison even when it was 1st offense (I didn't havet to go. It was reduced to a few moths probation), Credit card fraud for over 6K, putting in work at another job doing 40 hours a week while running the store, and dealing with stress just having to move back home because of the store not having early success. Throughout all of this I have made it through but only through Jesus Christ and God. That has been my backbone. I just want you to know whatever you are going through you can make it out and get it going again. But its's a relationship. Think about it like this, If you never give your mom any attention or always have an attitude can you really expect to get something from the store? Same way with God, if you never spend any time with Him how can he know you. Stay prayerful. Don't worry. If God really has the entire world in his hands think about how easy it is for him to fix your small problem. Nothing is too big for God. Have a great day. Thank God and thank you.
