Let Your Life Count Chapter 13
For God did not give us a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, of love and of self- discipline. So do not be ashamed to testify about our Lord. 2 Timothy 1:7-8
What were you afraid of as a child?
What scares you as an adult?
Then Jesus said to his disciples: "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them.
And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?
Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith!
And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. 30For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. Luke 12:22-30
It’s not what we do, it’s what we leave undone that haunts our quiet moments.
Do you have any unfinished business?
“I want to live the rest of my life in such a way that when my alarm goes off in the morning, the enemy jumps to his feet and yells, “Oh no. She’s up!”
Have you ever had to step out of your comfort zone? How did you feel before, and after?
Look at the thing you dread most, because it may be the key to living a life that counts.
Is the world being robbed because you are living controlled by dread?
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
Resolve TODAY to take care of something you have been putting off.
