God has put you here for a reason. You matter! You have an important part to play! God has placed gifts and words within you that will change lives and change the world. The Scripture says he Knew you before the foundation of the world, Before there was an Earth, God knew you, He knew your flaws, he knew your strengths, and He planned for you to exist at this very moment and time! Take some time today and search within yourself and ask God to develop those Gifts so that you can fulfill your God given Destiny. I want you to get excited because God has a great purpose for your Life!!

God, never let us forget the importance of fellowship and accountability. Help us give up our pride because we were not meant to travel this HARD path alone, it is impossible. “two are better then one, because together they can work effectively. If one of them falls down, the other can help him up…. Two people can resist an attack that would defeat one person alone. A rope made of three chords is hard to break” Ecclesiastes 4:9
THE SHORTEST VERSE IN THE BIBLE IS FOUND IN JOHN 11:35— “JESUS WEPT.”
It is also, to me, one of the most mind blowing verses in the Bible.
Think about it. Jesus weeping, not just crying! Isn’t Jesus supposed to be strong and powerful?
The background of this is that Jesus has just returned to the village of Bethany. His friend, Lazarus, has just died four days earlier and there was intense mourning by his burial place within the tomb he was in. Jesus stood and He heard the people cries of pain and loss, He saw the tears falling from their eyes. Jesus felt the pain around Him, and He wept….
I think this relates so society so much today. I feel like we are taught not to show our true feelings— just push them aside. Especially boys. There is also a crazy, insane thought going around that it is not ok to cry!? What! Some people have said that is not ok to cry because it is showing God doubt that we don’t trust Him. But look! Jesus Wept. If He needs to cry, maybe you and i need a good cry too!
