2 Timothy 1:5 I have been reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also.”
1. God gave you and me a fingerprint that NO ONE else has, so we can leave an impact that NO ONE else can.
2. Lay down your PHONE and pick up your BIBLE.
3. Lay down your PAST and pick up JOY.
Psalm 46:10 Be still and know that I am God.
Isaiah 43:18-19 “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing!”
4. Lay down WORRY and FEAR and pick up FAITH AND TRUST.
Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with ALL your heart and lean not on your own understanding.
Psalm 56:4 In God, whose word I praise, in God I TRUST; I WILL NOT BE AFRAID.
Isaiah 43:1-3 “FEAR NOT, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the water, I will be with you and when you pass through the rivers; they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the Lord, YOUR God….!”
2 Timothy 1:6-7 For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For the Spirit God gave us does make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline [sound mind].
May I understand that life is rich and multifaceted,
and that each stage of life has something valuable to contribute to the others.
May I encourage those who are younger and honor those who are older.
May I drink from the wells of wisdom in the older generation
and feed the spirits of younger generation with the Word of God.
May I celebrate and embrace the gifts of each generation
as God allows me to share His love
and place my spiritual fingerprint on others.
