Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. Matthew 7:13,14
To obey is better than sacrifice. 1 Samuel 15:22
- Spending time with the Lord by reading His Word so I can know Him more. He wants me to meditate on what the Bible has to say so I can learn to apply it to my life. He wants me to pray and actually have a conversation with Him, but I need to be still long enough to hear His voice. All of this takes time, but it is THE MOST important aspect of my life.
- He wants me ministering to my husband. As I serve him and give him honor and respect.
- He wants me training and discipling my children for His glory.
- He wants my home kept and running so my family’s needs are met.
- And then He wants me involved in outside ministry. (Sometimes my list could be backwards with my outside ministry being on the top of this list and the time I spend with the Lord on the bottom.) 🙁
Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. Matthew 10:34
For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him. 2 Samuel 22:31
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. Hebrews 11:1 (NLT)
The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer. 2 Samuel 22:2
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the LORD and depart from evil. Proverbs 3:5-7
