My identity is found in God, not in this world!
As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. John 15:19 NIV
The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2:17 NIV
God is love and the greatest love you will ever know! Love can be wonderful here on Earth but it compares little to a Heavenly type of love!
Belief is so vital to God answering prayers and sometimes its God’s sovergnity to just answer prayers! Just look at Gabriel telling Mary she will concieve the child Jesus! It was God’s sovernity!
The angel Gabriel told Mary, “‘For no word from God will ever fail.”
”I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” Then the angel left her.”
Luke 1:37-38 NIV
The foundation of all mentorship starts with be able to confidently speak into your own life first. Let God speak into your life first and foremost!
Victory starts at the cross not mental willpower!
Good news! Troubles ahead but God is faithful if we submit to Him! Idols keep us from God’s heart but serving Him protects us from future judgement! You may be saved but wouldn’t rather serve God with your whole heart?
“They tell how you turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God, and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead—Jesus, who rescues us from the coming wrath” 1 Thessalonians 1:9-10

Here are some quotes that came to my spirit this today. I hope it encourages you.
“It’s in the waiting that you are truly strengthened. And it’s all about how you choose to wait. For example, when you wait for a train you can either complain, constantly look at your watch, or reflect on how far you’ve come. The choice is always yours.” – Carly
”Just because a story starts off good it doesn’t mean it will end good. And just because a story starts off bad it doesn’t mean it will end bad. It doesn’t matter how it begins, all the matters is how you preserve in the pages in between to determine how it will end.” – Carly
