Some people don't belong in your life. It's okay to let them go. Some people drag us down. It's okay to move on from them. You're on a journey with the Lord. If some people don't want to travel with you, that's on them, not you. Let them go and keep walking with Jesus.

Do not let your sin and failure keep you from Jesus. Christ came for sinners, and it is sinners who need a Savior. So for all the foolish, fallen, messed up, mixed up, worn out, discouraged, backslidden, compromised, downtrodden, unlovely people who wish and dream and secretly hope for a new start, take heart. Christ has come for you.

When you feel the slightest urge to encourage someone, do it. Put aside your work, get up from your desk, pick up the phone, send an email, write a text, pat someone on the back, say a good word to lift someone’s spirits. Try doing it for just one week. Who knows? It might become a permanent habit.

How should we treat our enemies? We are to love them and pray for them. God uses them to chisel away the rough spots in your life. Enemies are no fun, and they often mistreat us. But we can live without bitterness when we remember they are part of God's plan to make us like Jesus.

Choosing to believe God is good does not exempt you from sorrow and suffering, nor will it guarantee you an easy road to follow. But it will put a firm foundation under your feet as you journey from earth to heaven. “I am confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living" (Psalm 27:13).

Most people don’t enjoy confessing their sins, so they avoid it whenever possible. But when we dare to take God at his word, we discover the joy of forgiveness. You can be set free if you are willing to face the truth about yourself.

When you are stuck, remember this: God doesn't keep time like we do. Your Redeemer is on the way. He's just not working on your schedule.

Here's a simple formula for spiritual growth: T + HH + GE = SG Time plus habits of holiness plus godly encouragement equals spiritual growth. You could add more to that equation, but you can't take anything away and still grow spiritually. You need to put in the time, build the right habits, and have friends who encourage you in the right direction. That's the secret to spiritual growth!

“Now to the one who is able to keep you from falling, and to cause you to stand, rejoicing, without blemish before his glorious presence” Jude 24 NET). No blemish. No fault. No guilt. When we stand before the Lord, he will say, “Does anyone in the whole universe know any reason why this person should not enter heaven?” At that point there will be a loud silence as no one—not the angels or the demons, not the saints or the sinners—no one in all the universe will be able to bring any charge against God’s elect. We are very flawed now, but when we stand before the Lord, all our blemishes will be gone forever. Let that thought give strength to your heart today.
