Good Verses

“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is - his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2

There are so many ads on tv and tv shows and movies portraying what the world says you should be like. But what God wants you to be is more important. It is easy to conform to the ways of the world. But in the long run that is good.

“As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.”
Psalm 103:12

God has seperated us so far from our sins.

Jeremiah 29:11For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future.

God has a plan for us and it may be different then what we want but God will make his way work and it will turn out for the better. We can't see the whole picture. We see only a tiny bit. And it may look strange or wrong, all messed up, but it is how it is suppose to be and is important for the whole picture to turn out how it's suppose to.

Jeremiah 1:7-8
But the LORD said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am only a child.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the LORD.

We should be bold and go where God wants us. You shouldn't be afraid because God will protect you. So you shouldn't say, "I'm too young, I can't make a difference." because you can.

Deuteronomy 31:8
The LORD Himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.

God is with you through everything and he will get you through a hard time. So don't be afraid because God is with you.

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life

This is one of the most quoted verses. But we can't understand that kind of love. We're only humans. How could someone, perfect, give up his life for us? We don't deserve it. We have all sinned. We've all messed up. We all make mistakes but someone perfect died so that we wouldn't die the death that we deserve but instead we would get to live forever.

Phillipians 2: 5-11
5Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: 6Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, 7but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death— even death on a cross! 9Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 10that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Jesus has a really hard life but he didn't complain. He was humble.

This is a really clear vivid witness. I know what you mean about T.V. ads showing a view of life that is unGodly. One I can recall advertised beer, said "It makes you feel high, and that's what life's about." Other ads encourage you to take pride in getting something before others do. The focus is all on self and pride, not worshipping God with your life and living for Him.
Keep posting! I said a short prayer that God will uphold you always.
