Life Lessons from 2 Corinthians 4:18

2 Corinthians 4:18 says “So we do not focus on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what
is unseen is eternal.”2 corinthians

This verse speaks directly to today’s “see it to believe it” culture. We focus on looks, success, money, fame, popularity, all sorts of temporary lifely pleasures. The Bible tells us to focus what on what is unseen rather than what is seen. It tells us to focus on our faith, our friendships, our relationship with God, and other things that are not temporary but are everlasting. What is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. God wants us to focus on what matters most in life and what will bring us the most joy and fulfillment, which is a relationship with Him, not more clothing or popularity.

Focus on what is unseen, for the temporary things in life are, well, temporary! God’s love never ends.

Recently, one of my #1 prayers is for contentment. I pray that God would make me happy and content with what He has given me, because it is so easy to get caught up in the world of “want” and “need.”

Philippians 4:11 says “For I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.” I feel like this should be our prayer every day, to be content in our life and out situation. We should be grateful for what God has given us, and not be jealous or want what others philipians 4-11have. Easier said than done, right? It is so easy to want what others have, whether it is an outfit, a boyfriend, a job, or even family. We get caught up in what we DON’T have and forget what we DO have. When you are shopping and see a super cute dress, think to yourself, do I really need this dress? I already have a closet full, and some people around the world only have a few pieces of clothing whereas my closet is bursting. When we become content with what we have, we become happier. We stop playing the comparison game, and we focus on the positive.

I challenge you to be content in your life. Once you learn contentment, you will be surprised at how much happiness it brings you!

Life Lessons From 2 Timothy 4:17

2 Timothy 4:17 says “But the Lord stood by be and strengthened me.” Have you ever felt like no one had your back and you were alone? This verse tells us that we never have to feel like that, because God has our back, always.

In situations where I feel like my faith is being attacked or I am being personally attacked, I always try to remember that the Lord is standing by me and strengthening me. Being on YouTube, I can read the comments on my videos, and sometimes they are not the timothysweetest words. Don’t get me wrong, there are way more sweet, nice comments and supporters than there are negative Nancy’s. But, sometimes those negative comments can overshadow all of the good. That is when I remember that the Lord with with me and is strengthening me. When you feel like you are alone in a situation, when you feel attacked or belittled, or you just feel weak and helpless, just remember that the Lord is always by your side, strengthening you.

You are never alone, and you never have to feel weak or helpless! God has your back, always.

Life Lessons from Colossians 3:23

Colossians 3:23 says “Whatever you do, do it with all of your heart as doing it for the Lord, not for man.” What does this verse tell you? How can…

Colossians 3:23 says “Whatever you do, do it with all of your heart as doing it for the Lord, not for man.” What does this verse tell you? How can you apply it to your everyday life? I have a few ideas. Let’s break the verse down.

“Whatever you do, do it with all of your heart…” This line tells mecollossians to not just do something for the sake of doing it, or not just doing something to get it done and check it off of a list. It tells me that whatever I do, I need to do my best at it and give it my best effort. I need to put my heart into it. “…as doing it for the Lord, not for man.” To me, this says that your aim should be to please God, not man (or woman). You should do things because God wants you to, not because people want you to. You need to treat every situation with great care and do it to your best ability as if you were doing it for the Lord, not for another person. When you start to do this, people will notice there is something different about you and the way you treat others and act. What a great way to witness to others! Your actions speak so loudly about what is in your heart.

What does this verse say to you? Do you feel it says something else? Comment below and share your thoughts!

Does life have you feeling like you just can’t win? Do you feel defeated or confused at why God is putting you through difficult times? Or, are you having trouble understanding why bad things happen to you when you are such a good person? Are you mad at God for the situations He has put you in? John 13:7 has some words of wisdom for you.john 13

John 13:7 says “Jesus replied ‘You don’t understand now what I am doing, but someday you will.’” This verse pretty much says that you might not know what God is working in your life or why he has put you in the situation or difficult times, but someday you will understand. When you feel frustrated or afraid or mad at what is going on in your life, just know that it is all for a reason. God does not give you anything you cannot handle. He knows your limits, he knows your strengths, and He knows what is best for you. In the future you will be able to look back at these hard times and know that God had his hand in all of it.

Keep the faith, keep praying, and keep trusting that God has got this all under control.
