I grew up in a wonderfully loving home, and while we said grace at meals and prayers at night, I didn't know what it meant to have a personal relationship with Jesus. Fast forward to college, and I found myself 3000 miles from my family, faced with a slew of new and different experiences. I wanted to know God better, but I had yet to invite Him into my heart. In the meantime, I made a number of poor decisions, and was influenced by a lot of things. None of which were centered around Christ. These choices I made were not because I was a bad person or set out to make such mistakes, but I was not strong in my own convictions. This left me vulnerable to be swayed by the thoughts and actions of others, because I didn't understand the beautiful transformation that takes place when your mind is truly renewed in the Lord.

Now I am more firmly rooted and grounded in God’s Holy Word, but I still stumble. A lot. There are times I find it hard to choose God’s way instead of the world’s, but I do my best to stand firm. 

Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong (‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭16:13, ‭NLT‬‬). Regardless of how and when you started your journey with our Father, your walk will be tested and challenged. As part of Paul’s charge to Timothy he tells him to remain faithful to the things he has been taught, knowing he has received God-inspired truth. (Read 2 Tim. 3:14-17)

Confidently build your foundation on the solid rock of biblical truth, as these are the teachings we must hold onto. 

Do you know where you stand?
