To be bold in faith, often means, doing things others will not even attempt. Let us be bold. In our boldness, He is with us every step and every breath of the way. He will strengthen, guide and give us the wisdom during this journey.
We can count on His presence and we can know that, as His children won by the blood of Jesus, we can do all things in confidence and in obedience because of WHO we hold inside us.
Let us be bold, and walk in His light and shine His glory in this world. You have to allow God to work in your family's life... to help them grow. Because of your example, they will change, however, they may not realize it was your ongoing and steady influence that help them get there. Gratitude in your every moment is where we begin. Be thankful in all things.
“Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; His love endures forever.” ~1 Chronicles 16:34 (New International Version)
In your moments of thankfulness, remember to recognize the changes in your own life, as well as those you love. And be grateful for all the I will not be preoccupied with the 'what ifs', but grateful for all that HE HAS DONE WITH MY 'what did nots'. Not sure if this makes since, but for years I thought that I could be so much 'farther along' if something would have been different - BUT WHAT I HAVE FOUND that because of all the 'what did not', bad decisions and in spite of 'me', HE HAS DONE AN AMAZING WORK IN ME.
