Cling to the Lord like a child wrapped around a leg. If you do not cling to Him, you will cling to something else. Our help comes from God. . Do not just check the box. Spend time with God, seek His will, pursue Him.
God is always watching over you. He will protect you.
The areas of our lives that go well are areas we have given to God. When we try to do it on our own, it ends up a mess.
Being thankful is a choice we make. Every day we need to make the decision to follow the Lord. He is our refuge. We have to be in the refuge for the refuge to work.
