Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.
Romans 12:9 NIV
Always strive to do what’s right even when it’s easier to do wrong. Always strive to be loving even when it’s easier to be unkind. Always strive to be honest even when a little “white lie” seems acceptable.
Always walk away from a situation that you know God had nothing to do with creating…and you can always tell because God would never place you in harms way, even as a way of learning a “lesson”. If you risk life, love, freedom, and piece of mind then that’s not God.
We all have choices…good or evil…what choice will you make?
Father touch me, warm me, fill me, and protect me from harm. Let Your light be my beacon through darkness, let Your love overrun and destroy all evil. I pray to always turn to You Father, even when I don’t know where my next step will take me. I hope to always trust that Your love will never lead me astray. I love and honor You Father. Amen.
Love you always,
