So I have had the last few of these typed out for a while, but haven't posted them.. Instead of posting 4 different ones, I just combined.
Fast Day 37
Sunday; February 19
Forgiveness is a major struggle for me. I don't like it when something wrong is done to me (who does?) and I don't want to let it go. I hold grudges, and I can hold them for years. But on the other hand, if I did something wrong, I hate it when people don't forgive me! It just annoys me and I don't feel like I deserve it just because I apologized. Over the past few months, God has really placed forgiveness towards those in my past on my heart. I have been trying so hard to forgive them. For some people it came easier for others. I am still working on forgiving some. And I am working on not holding grudges anymore.
"Forgive and forget" is what they tell you.
I don't think forgetting it will do you any good.
My view is that just because you forgive someone does not mean you have to trust them again. Forgive everyone, trust only those who earn your trust back.
God forgave us.
Why should we not forgive others?
Luke 6:37 "..forgive, and you will be forgiven."
Thank you for forgiving us. Please help us to forgive others.
In Your Name we pray,
Fast Day 38
Monday; February 20
1 Corinthians 15:33 "Do not be deceived: Bad company ruins good morals."
Peer pressure sucks.
The world puts such a burden for teenagers to fit in.
Why fit in when you can stand out? I like that idea better.
Be a light to those in the darkness. Don't sink to their level.
Lord, help us not give in to what the world has to offer, for we know that you have more to offer than we could ever imagine. Amen.
Fast Day 39
Tuesday; February 21
Don't surround yourself with people who are only pretending to be your friends.
It's as simple as that.
Father God, give us wisdom, and discernment, so we know who to trust. Help us break off unhealthy friendships, and give us the right mind in seeing who we need to keep close. Amen.

Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank you so much for taking our burdens. Thank you for making us new. Thank you for giving us life. Thank you for choosing us. Thank you.. Thank you.. Thank you..

Until next time...
