Trust God’s hand not your own. He will hold you up. Take your mind off the world;put it on Christ. Continually seek His will for your life, keep praying, have faith in the Lord, and never forget the love He has for you. “What doesn’t kill you makes us strong; We are only defeated when we quit.” “A man is not finished when he is defeated. He is finished when he quits.” – Richard M. Nixon “Opportunity often comes disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat.” – – Napoleon Hill “Being defeated is often a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent,” Don’t forget you’re human, it’s OK to have a meltdown. Just don’t unpack and live there. Cry it out and then refocus on where you are headed.” Corinthians 4:8-10 We are afflicted in every way, not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies. Psalm 34:19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. Stand firm (https://youtu.be/b5WMHFss0vY) Hebrews 10:35-36 Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised. 4. 1 Corinthians 16:13 Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong. God saves = Psalm 145:19 He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; He hears their cry and saves them. Psalm 34:18 The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. No one can stop God’s plan for you Isaiah 55:8-9 For His thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. Psalm 40:5 O LORD my God, you have performed many wonders for us. Your plans for us are too numerous to list. You have no equal. If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds, I would never come to the end of them. Romans 8:28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. Do not fear; Deuteronomy 31:8 The LORD, himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Deuteronomy 4:31 For The LORD your God is a merciful God; He will not abandon or destroy you or forget the covenant with your ancestors, which he confirmed to them by oath. Psalm 118:6 The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? Psalm 145:18 Our LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.
Just Jesus, my God
Would the Holy Spirit
have anointed contentious
disciples? To Peter, disharmony
hinders prayer. He tells husbands:
“Live with your wives in an understanding…
Do this so nothing will stop your prayers” (I Peter 3:7.)
Waiting on God means working through conflicts, forgiving offenses,
resolving disputes, resolving disputes, “Always keep yourself united in the
Holy Spirit, and bind your-selves together in peace”
I do not promise My followers the world’s ease and pleasures.
I promise those Joys that the world can neither give nor take away.
I promise the heart-rest found in Me alone.
It does not mean that all the beauties and
pleasures of the world can be renounced,
but that they must be enjoyed only after
the treasures and Joys of My Kingdom
have been learned, appreciated. Love Him.

Why Is the U.S. Constitution Important?
Published: September 14, 2016 | Updated: November 18, 2019
Constitution Day is September 17th! Are you going to celebrate?
Before you dismiss the idea of celebrating a piece of paper that’s almost 230 years old, you might want to consider just how important it is. The U.S. Constitution is at the foundation of every single law in America. It’s at the heart of how we think, act, and govern as Americans.
History of the Constitution
Once the American colonies declared their independence from Great Britain in 1776, they had to get down to the business of running their own country. The Continental Congress adopted the Articles of Confederation in 1777, which was later ratified by the 13 original colonies. But it soon became clear that in their effort not to be dominated by a strong central government like the one ruled by King George III, they’d made their new government too weak.
In 1789, a new constitution was adopted that created a stronger centralized government that shared power among three branches: executive (President), legislative (Congress), and judicial (Supreme Court). That document remains at the bedrock of the way our entire country is run and has an impact on all of our citizens –even you.
10 Ways the Constitution Affects Your Life
