LF kid leader for such a sudden absence due to benpi. || include local people: I felt good that had a slight chat w. the girl at copain. I hope God blesses this tiny connection.

  • Seek wisdom and guidance: freedom from fear of death from injustice. gossip forming myself for bad (like choice food that goes down to one’s inner most being). Edom(Esau, pride, arrogant) vs. Israel (humility, god-ness) . do not gloat, rejoice, boastfully mock in the day of their destruction/calamity/distress. for the day of the Lord is near.
  • worship: I am nobody. I am living for the world to see nobody but Jesus. I exist because of Your grace. I am to learn to exist and work for your plans not mine.

  • Biblical Success — Running the Race of Our Lives: Day 4 — Who do we train with?: “Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.” Colossians 2:8 NKJV. In one sense the Race of life is a solitary race that we run alone. But in a larger sense we train with others and run as a part of a body. Who we train with becomes part of who we are and who we become. The influence of others can be huge asset for good or, unfortunately, for not so good. In the big picture of our race of life we have a great model, Jesus, and a great personal trainer, His Holy Spirit, and even a book of written instructions! They are the constants of our lives, available to us 24/7, and unchanging in their commitment to Truth and our well being and success in the race. But then there are many others that have the ability to influence us who have skin on or had it! And this is where our intentionality and choices enter in. 箴言 知恵の泉 13:20 知恵ある人のそばにいれば知恵ある人になり、悪人のそばにいれば悪に染まります。コロサイ人への手紙 2:8 あのむなしい、だましごとのような哲学によって、だれからも信仰と喜びが奪われないように注意しなさい。あのような哲学はキリストのことばによるものではなく、人間の考えや思いつきから出た、幼稚な考えでしかありません。
  • continuous endurance in training with my purposes for this season.
  • find good companies
