One improvement, establishing of a virtue in our lives, has a positive ripple effect.
We know that the Devil is prowling, always looking to devour us. When we experience temptation, we need to be ready. Here are three scriptures to have on hand when we are suddenly attacked by the Devil:
Have I been spending so much time apart from that I’m forgetting that I’m still a part of?
Set a timer. Give yourself a small amount of time and focus. Don’t allow yourself to be distracted. You’ll be amazed at how much you can get done in 10 minutes.
In this world where everyone is inviting us to come and follow, we need to distinguish between the voice of the Lord and those trying to lead us astray.
God has a plan, a purpose, and will for our lives. I want to do what God would have me do, not what I would have me do.
In our frustration, it is easy for us to take our eyes off Heaven and forget that God is ultimately in charge.
Be patient with yourself and don’t compare yourself with others. Have someone or some people guide you. And, mix things up.
It is important to start. Start with something small and make progress as you go along. Just start. Start somewhere.
