Thursday November 6th, 2014: Together We’re Better

Devotions

better together

Happy Thursday! On Tuesday I shared part one to this topic. Check that out here! Over the past few weeks I’ve been spending a lot of time investing in relationships. I’ve been intentional about spending time with my friends. I’ve been intentional about spending time with my parents. I’ve been intentional about spending time with God. Why? Because relationships are CRUCIAL!! They are so important to life. In fact they are vital!

“And the Lord said ‘It is not good for man to be alone. I will make a companion who will help him.” Genesis 2:18 NLT

This isn’t just talking about marriage. God clearly states that it’s not good for man to be alone and that we need companions. Why?

“Two people can accomplish more than twice as one; they get a better return for their labor.” Genesis 4:9 NLT

We can accomplish more together!

“Then make me truly happy by agreeing with each other, loving one another, and working together with one heart and purpose.” Philippians 2:4 NLT

We make God happy when we agree with each other, love each other, AND work together! God loves to see us in relationship with each other.

So are you going to be intentional with your relationships today? Are you going to agree with each other, love each other, and work together? I challenge you to call, text, or message someone you haven’t talked to in the past few weeks or months. Try to restore that relationship or just simply offer a sweet word of encouragement. Relationships are important to life and you NEED them! Remember that. 🙂

Tuesday November 4th, 2014: Why We Need Each Other

Devotional

Over the past few weeks my church has been in this series called “Better Together.” I’ve really enjoyed it and I really noticed how applicable it is to my life! The whole idea is that we are better together… Each week has touched on a few different reasons why we’re Better Together. Robert Madu came a few weeks ago and preached fire! The idea of the message is that in order for us to have a team, is we have to identify who we really are. Check out this message.  Happy Tuesday!
