With November coming to a fast close and the bells of Christmas jingling, many are making their lists and checking them twice. Lists filled with desire for something new and in order to receive the new some actually need to clear out some old stuff. Good usable stuff gets moved out to make room better more advanced stuff. However, some people like my blogging buddy, Ella at Ella’s Edge have a gift for repurposing the old like making earrings out of credit/gift cards.
Whether it’s toys, food, clothing, or trash lots of stuff get thrown out in America. But there are some things we can’t afford to trash. For the past couple of days, I have awaken with the words cast not away your confidence burning in my consciousness. Those words are a portion of Hebrews 10:35.
Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. (KJV)
What causes us to lose confidence—the passing of time. Time has a way of wearying us. Don’t throw out your confidence in God’s Word to you just because the end of the year is approaching. Either we can allow our faith to atrophy or we can strengthen it.
