Conduct yourself with wisdom in your interactions with outsiders (non-believers), make the most of each opportunity [treating it as something precious]. Let your speech at all times be gracious and pleasant, seasoned with salt, so that you will know how to answer each one [who questions you].
COLOSSIANS 4:5-6 AMP
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
Romans 8:28 (NKJV)
I wait for the Lord, I expectantly wait, and in His word do I hope.
Psalm 130:5 (AMPC)
In this world of “quick fixes” and “hurry up” it is hard to focus ones attention on God and waiting on Him for wisdom, direction or for prayers to be answered. I invite you to walk by faith not by sight. Trust in God for everything. Have patience and look forward to God moving in your life.
Blessings and Peace,
Barbara J Couch, MDiv.
Consider it wholly joyful, my brethren, whenever you are enveloped in or encounter trials of any sort or fall into various temptations. Be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience.
James 1:2-3 AMPC
