IF GOD WROTE YOU A LETTER
I hear your prayer to live with integrity and in a way that pleases and honors me. I love that prayer and want that to be your constant cry. I want you to prioritize righteous living. Keep seeking and pursuing me. It won’t change my love for you. I will love you regardless. But it will strengthen you and keep you mindful of the temptations and traps set around you.
I will lead you and help you navigate life’s challenges, but I do not want you to do so alone. Lock arms with teammates who will protect and provide for you. You need trusted friends who will listen, pray, and challenge you directly, when needed. And others need that from you. Life is not meant to be lived alone. I will be with you, but widen your net and allow others into your life. Keep your eyes fixed on me and remain teachable so you can follow my leading and hear the counsel of friends.
