Scripture is alive and beautiful. Make every attempt to immerse yourself in it. You will learn, be advised, corrected, trained and reminded of the eternal hope we have in our Savior.

I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 (NIV)

Embrace your current season and live it as authentically as you possibly can.

But who can discern their own errors? Forgive my hidden faults.
Psalm 19:12 (NIV)

It’s impossible to have a truly objective perspective of your own ways. Pray that God would reveal your ways to you, so that you can course correct and best represent Him. Ask Him to guide you in putting solid counsel around you, who are willing to lovingly challenge you to be better.
