You Become Like Your Friends
Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.” – 1 Cor 15:33
True friends always lift you higher and challenge you to walk in a manner pleasing to the Lord.Lisa Bevere
Friendships are so important for girls, but the pressure to live up to worldly standards is prevalent! Pray for your daughters to develop Godly friendships. Pray for them to develop healthy, Christian relationships with guys. Teach them that choosing friends is important because you will become like them.
You Will Have Tough Times
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds….. James 1:2
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33
Breathe… This is just a chapter. It’s not your whole story.S. Lourie
As much as we want to protect our kids from everything, it can’t and won’t work. They will have to face the world and they are going to have some tough times. Teach them to learn to love people, make decisions, and stick to their values. Face tough times with God on your side. It’s not going to be easy to walk through, but you have to walk through it.
Optimism Pays. Pessimism Doesn’t.
But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. Romans 8:25
Don’t get caught up in the drama and petty conversations. People will be attracted to someone who is enjoying their life, not finding and being overcome with negative issues every single day. Being optimistic is putting our hope in the Lord and having faith that we can trust God no matter what. Negativity will breed negativity. Don’t get caught in that downward cycle.
I am an optimist. It does not seem too much use being anything else.Winston Churchill
Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord. – Psalm 31:24
