Joshua Troop - L.o.v.e - Love is all we need
- Read! Let's say you get an e-mail from one of your close friends you haven't heard from in a while. What do you do? You read it, of course!
- God wrote several letters to you, have you read them? Don't take out your dustyBible and read it from cover-to-cover tonight - you'll never be able to grasp the right concept.
- Read other books, like devotionals, that repeatedly talk about and quote the Bible; then you should read chapters of the Bible dealing with the issue in your devotional.
- For an amazing reading plan and daily devotionals, try going to 1way2god.net
- Girls: check out Point of Grace's book "Girls of Grace", which talks about God in every aspect of life, from family and friends, to boys. You can also try the "Faithgirlz!" series, which tells you how to stay close to God as you're growing up. For older teens, there is also the True Colors series by Melody Carlson. They're books that deal with common scenarios in today's society with a great Christian message. Look into them!
- Guys: check out "Revolution Devotional".
- A good standard of Bible reading time is ten to twenty minutes a day. No less. You can do more if you want, obviously.
Through my eyes,
As and 11 year old I have been through a lot. I have been taken from my parents, felt alone, and at times felt there was nowhere to turn. Right as I felt so angry and was ready to give up, I found God. He delivered me from anger, hurt, and abandonment. I have been blessed with a family that loves me until my mom comes for me.
