1 Corinthians 16:13-14 NIV
- Be on guard.
- Stand firm.

I love verses that tell us how we should live, what we should do, and cheer us on.
On days like today and times like right now it’s easy to lose track of our purpose and beliefs, to give into the overwhelmingly negative thoughts, or to turn our focus inward.
But more than ever, we need to be reminded of this list of actions. This is not a time to give in or give up.
Today, be on guard over your heart. Stand firm in your faith. Live courageously and in the strength God gives. And in all your actions, love.
Protect us from exhaustion, fear and depression.
Be our guardian, courage, and strength.
Help us remain firm in our faith
and loving in our actions.Amen.
