I finished the New Testament today! This is a huge accomplishment for me, especially balancing out work and classes full time. I feel incredibly strong and closer to God! Thanks to a friend who encouraged me to read it in the first place…if it weren’t for him I wouldn’t have thought I could accomplish something like that (pathetic, I know). I still think to myself why I was so intimidated by the bible in the first place. Maybe it was because I tried to read Genesis and stumbled upon the genealogy that eventually had me lose focus and give up. Each and every one of us need someone in our lives that will encourage, grow, and influence, Someone who will tell you the truth no matter what circumstances, and someone who will accept you for you. A friend that’s willing to lend a hand and even reach an arm out in order to help you…if you don’t have one of those then I, myself, encourage you to BE that friend. Remember that Jesus Christ is the only one who’s perfect. Your friends will disappoint but every follower of Christ knows the road WILL be rocky. Encourage someone today.
God bless you, friends!
