19 Things I’ve Learned by 19

 

//Live with purpose. We are not promised tomorrow.

//You cannot make everyone happy. If your life and decisions are controlled by the opinions of other people, you will be kept from listening to the Lord’s direction and seeking His will for your life.

// You can be a kind person and still say no. 

//You are in control of what you think about. You can choose to dwell on the Truth.

//Read more books. Don’t forget the delight in a good story on a page.

//God’s goodness does not depend on your circumstances. Our circumstances are constantly changing, but the faithfulness and goodness of God never does.

//Never seek your worth in your appearance, or in others’ opinion of it. You are more than what you look like. Appearances are never permanent.

//God’s timing is always perfect. God knows what you want, but he also knows what you need, and He will provide it when the time is right.

//Love people. Remember the love extended to you, and let it overflow to others.

//Make time for little people. Invest in the kids in your life. They are looking up to you whether you realize it or not.

//God is greater than your feelings. As terrible and overwhelming as a situation may seem, God is holding you, and He is bigger.

//Worrying about the future never helped anyone. God is in control, leave it in His hands and trust that He knows best.

//Don’t be too busy to take care of your physical health

//Nothing you do can change the infinite amount of love that God has for you. He loved you when you were His enemy, and as long as you are His child, your sins are covered in His blood. Stop trying to earn His favor.

//Find your people, and love them. Surround yourself with friends that encourage you, but who also challenge you, and the people who are honest enough to tell you the truth in love because they know it is for your good.

//Do not listen to Satan’s lies–cling to the promises of God. Memorize Scripture–immerse yourself daily in His truth.

//God has given you gifts for a reason. Don’t ever allow distraction to pull you away from your purpose.

//Look to Christ for lasting joy and fulfillment, not to another human. People change, and people are broken. Only in Christ can you be made whole.

//You will never regret living 100% for Jesus, because this life is only a moment, and you exist by Him and for Him only.

“I have one desire now–to live a life of reckless abandon for the Lord, putting all my energy and strength into it.” -Elizabeth Elliot
