Awesome thoughts from Teresa Bolme today about friends and boyfriends!
Everybody wants it. Everybody needs it. How do you get it? Where do you get it? Is it really OK to ADMIT that you need it?
The Bible says in Proverbs 18:24,
“A man(or woman) that has friends must show him(or her)self to be friendly and there is a friend that sticks closer than a brother.”
Proverbs is a book of Wisdom written by Solomon almost 3,000 years ago. I don’t think very much has changed in that time. If we want friends we have to act friendly. God gave Solomon wisdom because Solomon asked for it, then he shared his wisdom with us all these years later.
How do we show ourselves friendly? We put a smile on our face, introduce ourselves, do something nice for someone, consider someone else’s feelings above our own…the possibilities are endless. We have to be open to friendship.
As long as…

Diane helps us to understand how to find a lasting joy in Christ ❤
Finding A Lasting Joy
This is it! The first official blog post starting the first official day of our Bible Study, A Daughter’s Worth. I am so excited, are you? There is so much I want you to hear, so much that God has laid on my heart to share with you. It is my prayer that you find one thing in this post that will stick with you, that will make you think, and that will encourage you. Ok, let’s officially get started!
When I was in high school I worked at an assisted living facility, as a server. It was my favorite job to this date. One of the things I liked best about this job was getting to know a lady named Mary Jane. Anytime I was feeling bad about myself, God brought her along my path. Her words made me smile. She repeated them…

A Daughter’s Worth by Ava Sturgeon.
6 When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners.7
Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing
to die for a person who is especially good. 8 But God showed his great love for us
by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.

Come meet my dear friend Tina this morning over at the GCH:decaf blog and read all about how God gives us new beginnings ❤
Hi, everyone, my name is Tina Marin. I am a mother to a son, Brandon, age 22, a daughter Nikki, 25, and a wife to John for 17 years. I live in Murfreesboro, TN where I attend World Outreach Church and serve in a couple of different areas.
I have known Megan for a little over a year while serving with High School Infinity, but more intentionally through an online Bible study. I must say, I have found it easier to have a relationship with other women as I mature than when I was younger. Partly a trust issue I suppose. I haven’t been much of a role model in that area and I never saw it modeled very well.
However, through it all God has his hand in my life. My aunt and uncle adopted me, while both of my parents were still alive and I always seemed to…

It’s all about attitude today~~~ 🙂
What does the word attitude mean? The dictionary states it as meaning: a manner, disposition, feeling, position, etc., with regard to a person or thing; tendency or orientation, especially of the mind: a negative attitude; or a position or posture of the body appropriate to or expressive of an action, emotion, etc.: a threatening attitude; a relaxed attitude.
When you hear the word attitude, what are some words that come to mind? Do you think of words like angry, bold, sassy, mean, and bossy? Have you ever looked at the word attitude in a positive way? Attitude makes all of the difference in the world! My mom used to say that your attitude will either break you or make you. I always wondered what she meant by that saying. I found out what it all meant once I got older. Look at it like this; if you look at…

Having a pure heart ❤
A Pure Heart
Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
I’m sure you’ve all heard this verse, and maybe you even know the song… But what does this really mean? And how do we achieve a pure heart?
In Proverbs 4 verse 23 it says, “Above all else, guard your heart, for it affects everything you do.” When it says “heart”, I think it means to be cautious of your thoughts, words, and the things you seek after. Notice in the verse in Psalms that GOD is the one who is creating the pure heart. Apart from the Lord, we are anything but pure. But because of JESUS, we have the privilege and the opportunity to walk in a way that is pleasing to the Lord. We can walk in righteousness and purity, because we have been made…
