"Therefore encourage one another and build each other up as you are already doing."
Thank you for encouraging us brothers and sisters in Christ! Your prayers,cards, and thoughts help keep us positive and focused on our mission.
While we cannot control our circumstances, we can control our own attitude and actions. God's will and desire is that we would continue to become more like Him in our thoughts, words, and deeds- that we would be holy. In doing so, unbelievers, even those who persecute you, may come to know him.
Read Acts 16
God bless and remember even when hard encourage those around you!
