The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

Anger Control

Anger can become a doorway through which we walk into sinful behavior. It can create bad attitudes, bitterness, a spirit of vengeance, hatred, and other diseases of the spirit.
Our lives have profound effects upon the lives of others. Our words—what we say and the way we say them—can bless or curse the life of another person. Even the way we express our justified anger can be either positive or negative, righteous or sinful.

Something To Remember

Always remember: Treat others with the mercy you desire God to extend to you.

The Love of God Is An Active Love

“But whoever keeps His word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him: the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked.” 1 John 2:5-6 (NASB)
The “love of God” is much more than mere feeling or emotionalism; it is an active, giving love. For that love to become mature or “perfected” in someone requires a life of active, faithful obedience to Christ. This is what the term “walk” implies. It covers all our activities at home, at work, and at leisure. It challenges us to ask ourselves, “Do people see my everyday conduct as a witness to Christ’s message of salvation and His power to change lives?”

Morning Is Near — Helen Steiner Rice

Nothing in life can defeat me,
For as long as this knowledge
I can suffer whatever is happening,
For I know God will break
all the chains
That are binding me tight
in the darkness
And trying to fill me with fear. . .
For there is no night
with dawning,
And I know that my morning is near.
Helen Steiner Rice

Spending quiet time with God will bring quiet rest.

Romans 6:5-11

Since we have been united with Him in His death, we will also be raised to life as He was. We know that our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in our lives. We are no longer slaves to sin. For when we died with Christ we were set free from the power of sin. And since we died with Christ, we know we will also live with Him. We are sure of this because Christ was raised from the dead, and He will never die again. Death no longer has any power over Him. When He died, He died once to break the power of sin. But now that He lives, He lives for the glory of God. So you also should consider yourselves to be dead to the power of sin and alive to God through Christ Jesus.
Romans 6:5-11 (NLT)
