We all need a little encouragement some times.
I’ve been going through these past couple weeks feeling good, but a little bit stressed
with future plans, such as SATs, college plans, and my future. If I could sum up what God has
been teaching me during these weeks it would be
- READ THE BIBLE!!!!!!!!( I’ll be putting out a post on this in the near future)
- PRAY!!!!!!!!!!!!( I’ll be putting out a post on this in the near future)
- Don’t be an island.( See Below)
Although islands are beautiful, there is one underlining problem. They are in the surrounded by water, and not connected to any other land surface. I have the tendency to become an island( keep myself secluded) when I’m going through a difficult or slow patch in my life. God has been showing me,however,that it’s important to walk the Christian Faith with other believers, even when not everything is perfect in my life, and even when I’m busy.
Today I got together with my friend Nicole who is always so joyful and so inspiring. She’s older
than me so it was really great to be encouraged that she went through similar things that I’m going
through right now. It was also great to encourage her, and just talk about how our Christian
walk is going. Towards the end of our time together she gave me a website that
works through Youversion reading plans and is for women to keep them accountable.
People can also post prayer requests, share what they are learning, and just fellowship with one another.
