IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
Decide that you are committed to this new life. Surround yourself with others who are determined to grow and experience me. There is power when you pray together and agree together. Serving and striving to know me alongside others will be challenging at times because you are human, and you make mistakes. The believers in your life are at different stages of spiritual maturity and understanding. Still, grow together and pray together and stay committed together. You will experience the joys of grace, support, giving, receiving, forgiveness, and transformation in your spiritual family.
Following me will not be easy, but it will be worth it. Growth requires change. Trust me to help you let go of the old and embrace the new. You have an opportunity to live the life you’ve always wanted. Seek me, keep your eyes on me, follow me, and I will make sure you make it. I am always with you.
If you’re not involved in a small group, ask a leader in your church how you can be. If you’re already in one, send the group members a text or email today thanking them for their influence and support in your life.
