IT'S DAY 6 OF BLOGMAS. And I truly mean what this title says! I LOVE SUNDAYS.. they are my favorite days. I spend it worshipping God and with the family. AND HOPEFULLY, NOT DOING HOMEWORK..! (Whoops. I have so many final projects due.)
WATCH THE ANNUAL CHRISTMAS DEVOTIONAL right here and right now.
1. BE PROACTIVE AND FIGHT AGAINST SIN
You can not be idle. You can't be lazy. You can't involve yourself in mediocre activities. HERE IS THE THING.. The adversary is real. Satan will try so hard to tear you down, make you feel worthless, and blind your vision. BUT, YOU HAVE THIS AMAZING PERSON ON YOUR SIDE. His name is Jesus Christ. You have a Savior that died for your sins.. so, that YOU could OVERCOME the trials and problems of this world. Don't ever forget that. You are a child of God and you have divine potential. We need to be doing good continually.. not just sometimes. We need to follow the commandments always.
I get worried though.. because I am nowhere near perfection. I mess up.. a lot. But, we need to try our best and ENDURE. The biggest thing to think about is that we are either going forward or backward.. there is no in-between. I say this a lot, but it's true! YOU NEED TO BE ACTIVE IN YOUR FAITH. You need to be doing all you can.. Pray to the Lord for strength and you will be able to fight against sin. You will be unstoppable!
2. PRAY AND LISTEN
We have this incredible thing we can do.. and it's called PRAYER. We, as individuals, can pray to an all-knowing God up above. He created us. He is our Father. Just close your eyes, fold your arms, bow your head.. and PRAY. It's that simple. It means the world to Heavenly Father when we pray to Him and talk to Him. By praying, you are showing God your faith that He can hear you and that He listens to you.. which is 100% true because GOD CARES ABOUT YOU. He is mindful of you, wants the best for you, AND WANTS TO BLESS YOU. So, pray to Him about everything.. and then LISTEN. (This is the part I need to work on.) He will answer you! And maybe it's not in a crazy vision sort of way.. but, maybe a thought will come to your mind, or an overwhelming feeling of comfort.. either way, you will get an answer to your prayer through the Holy Ghost! I know that to be true.
HAVE A GREAT WEEK.. and stay tuned for more blog posts everyday up until Christmas. Yay!
