Mia, shared a number of awesome words and scriptures. Way to go, Mia! Here is one of her responses I really liked. “REMAIN—John 15:4 (NLT) “Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me.”
REVERENT—1 Peter 3:1b,2 (NLT) “Then, even if some refuse to obey the Good News, your godly lives will speak to them without any words. They will be won over by observing your pure and reverent lives.” “

This week’s letter is S
-The quality or state of being strong.
When we are weak, He is strong. He gives us strength through Christ Jesus.
-Protection from bad weather or weather
The Lord is our strong tower. He is our protector. The Holy Spirit lives within us. We are not alone. Christ walks with us.
(NIV) Isaiah 4:06, “It will be a shelter and shade from the heat of the day, and a refuge and hiding place from the storm and rain.”
What “S” words can you think that relate to having a relationship with Christ?
Month Scripture (NIV) Hebrews 12:07 & 11, “Endure hardship as discipline. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.”
