Good Character

He that walketh uprightly walketh surely: but he that perverteth his ways shall be known. Proverbs 10:9 KJV

*Perversion is always exposed, and meant to embarrass the individual at the least. Practicing good character will keep your name from being tarnished, keep you from misrepresenting God, and avoid exposure. No one is perfect, but remembering whose you are and who you serve will keep you in line.

Let Go & Let God

For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. 2 Corinthians 4:16 KJV

*Sometimes I feel like fainting...Not on God, but with everything that needs to be done, or sometimes I just want to give up on things that have not arrived yet. Hope deferred makes the heart sick,  but the moment the sickness wants to arise, I ask God to help me. He gives me strength. I even become weary  with His people because it is tiring to understand everyone, but you aren't always uplifted or poured into.  All that is a distraction from the positivity in my life, and the relationship I have with God. Taste and see that God is good, and He carries us through.

Tongue Control

He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction. Proverbs 13:3 KJV

*May the words of our mouth, and the meditation of our hearts be acceptable in God's site. Many times people kill bonds, ruin opportunities, misrepresent, and ruin trust based on what they say. May God help guard and guide our tongues, and may we surrender it to Him.

Revamping Your Focus

casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, II Corinthians 10:5 NKJV

*Let's  stop going against God's guidance, and cast down things we have been trying to hold on to. Let's remove people and things that keep us from executing His will, and those that prevent us from going to the next level. Even more so, let's refocus our minds away from things that make us mad and see what God is trying to tell us in every situation. Negativity is a distraction.

Character in Christ

A good name is better than precious ointment, And the day of death than the day of one’s birth; Ecclesiastes 7:1 NKJV

*Having integrity is greater than riches because your representation of God, in how you carry yourself, will be what draws souls to Christ or repels them. Who cares if you have money to give away if your credibility is shot? Think on the leadership you've experienced be it in today's time or the past...Now, think about how their behavior influenced people. Even in the news, we have seen very poor behavior that mattered more than the person's financial stability...You can't buy character or a proper connection to our Savior.

Staying in Character

See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. 1 Thessalonians 5:15 KJV

*We all have been there when we want to just let people have it...I mean just give them a good read, reality check, or wake up call. However, at the end of the day, it isn't worth it...The energy you put in to go off while displeasing God only hurts you in the end. You have now allowed that person to take you completely out of your character, when they weren't worth the energy in the first place. Being honest with someone is different from being evil to them, or trying to hurt their feelings. Even more so, being led on what to say is different from speaking out of emotions. The best thing to do is be led in what you say, be aware of the motive behind why you are saying it, and do not let people take you out of your element and change who you are as a person. It is a growth process, but during that growth remember to hold on to peace...No one is worth that aspect.

God's Strength & Focus

When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O Lord , held me up. In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul. Psalms 94:18‭-‬19 KJV

*Whenever my mind tries to go left, my wonderful Father in Heaven keeps me grounded and from bad choices. Rest in Him to stay focused, and to avoid giving    up or giving in...No short cut or quick fix is worth missing out on God's guidance and help.
