2 Peter 1: 5-9
5For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. 8For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9But if anyone does not have them, he is nearsighted and blind, and has forgotten that he has been cleansed from his past sins.
I read this yesterday and can't get it off of my mind.
I wrote down this passage also when I read it. Oh, how I want all those things in my life. It seems like I have been really bogged down lately and it is easy to say that there is no way out, but I know that if I can take it one step at a time and add these things to my faith that I will be a powerful tool for the Lord.
um…I seriously think we need to get together and share life. You are beautiful friend!
