I am so grateful for the people I have in my life! Healthy friendships are work, but completely worth the effort. My closest friends are so fun, they challenge me and they’re among the first to encourage me. And I work to be the same kind of friend in return.
I received a text this morning from one of these friends and I thought it was too good not to share:
“Thought I’d share my devotional from this morning…good reminder:
Have you ever stopped to realize that every choice you make reveals a lot about who you are? People can’t see our hearts, but they can see our hearts by the choices we make. Maybe you have made some choices that you feel have ruined your credibility with others or even your reputation. Maybe the choices you’ve made over the years have caused you great pain and disappointment. The good news is that yesterday ended last night and today is a new beginning. Make the commitment in your heart to always seek God’s wisdom and Godly counsel when making decisions. When you’re faced with temptation or find yourself in a vulnerable situation, remind yourself of the question “what would Jesus do?” (W.W.J.D.?) Above all else, guard and protect your heart so that the outward reflection that others see through your choices in life is not you, but Jesus.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for your faithfulness to me even when I am unfaithful. Give me the wisdom to make wise decisions that will honor you and allow my light to shine brighter for others to see. Thank you for your love and forgiveness that is always available to me even when I don’t make the right choices in life. May my heart reflect Jesus in everything I do. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
She said this was part of You Version’s “ReThink Life: a 40 Day Devotional”
Hope you found that as encouraging as I did!
