Building Up A Resistance

Although I would love to be at school – there are a few advantages of being at home! One of them is that it is easier not to get caught up in worldly things, as I don’t talk to people who may be bad influences and I don’t see my friends as often.

However, I will be back to school one day soon and I want to be prepared! I am using my time at home to build up a deep relationship with God, and I am praying that he will show me lies from the truth. When I go back, I want to be able to resist temptations, even if everyone else around me are sinning!

Obviously, we can’t avoid people of this world, and we shouldn’t be unfriendly to them. Rather, we should ask God to keep us holy and show us how to resist the temptation to do what they are doing.

With God’s help, I am building up a resistance! I want to be prepared!

God Is Everything We Need

It’s so wonderful to know that ALL we need is God! It’s important to remember this and to allow God to meet our every need. Some people may think of God as their Encourager, but not their Deliverer. Others may think of Him as Love, but not their Rock. I have asked God to show me every part of his character, so that I can let him be all that I need in every situation!
