Ecclesiastes 11:8 Don’t wait until you reach some magical age to start enjoying life—start now! Don’t take a single day for granted.
Matthew 28:1-10 Aron Lee Ralston’s story of being trapped under a boulder is just as unbelievable as Jesus’ Resurrection. But that doesn’t make it any less true.
John 19:30 Just before Christ died on the cross he said, “It is finished!” His death covered over our sins completely. There is nothing left that needs to be finished by man.
1 John 1:9 First John 1:9 says “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to will forgive us our sins....” Forgiveness is what the cross was all about.
Isaiah 53 Only Jesus Christ the risen Saviour has the power to rescue souls. His suffering brought a saving work of mercy and grace to the whole world. And He invites everyone to come to Him.
Luke 22:44 Scripture details Christ’s agony in the Garden of Gethsemane and how His sweat was like great drops of blood. He willingly entered into the suffering so we could be reconciled to God.
John 12:12-16 Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem was revolutionary. He spoke of love and grace and His Kingdom of peace.
Psalms 85:13 The one constant in life is change—and most of it is unexpected. Flexibility is the key to handling change. That way you can be open to it and live courageously and victoriously.
Luke 5:20 What’s holding you back from living your life to the fullest? Feelings of uselessness? Self-pity? Fear? Guilt? It’s never too late—or too early—to make positive changes.
Psalms 92:12-15 Whatever your age, you need to keep learning, trying new things, and setting new goals. As someone has said, “Age is a matter of mind over matter—if you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”
Ecclesiastes 3:11 Some things are worth waiting for. Do you struggle with God’s timing? Think of Ecclesiastes 3:11, “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.” Trust that God knows what He’s doing and wait patiently for Him to act.
Proverbs 27:1 According to the theory of aerodynamics the bumblebee cannot fly. However, the bee doesn’t know that. The same can be true for us—who told you your best years have passed? Who said you’re too young to achieve your dreams? Stay open to what the Lord has in store for you. You never know what’s just around the corner!
Matthew 5:6 Taking God seriously is not only having a sensitive heart towards Him. It’s an inner craving to know Him more. Do you hunger and thirst after God?
2 Corinthians 5:7 At times we all find the route God has chosen for us doesn’t make a lot of sense. Especially when life takes a turn we don’t expect. But as Chuck Swindoll says, “Welcome to God’s World.”
Psalms 139:9-12 Change isn’t easy, but it can be an opportunity for personal growth. As you learn to bend and adapt to change you become flexible. And when you’re flexible, you’re open to what God has in store for you.
