STATE OF MIND
Good morning God.
We thank you for this day and another day of life.
God, we pray that today will be example of you in the earth.
God, just as you are hope, we pray that we display hope through out our day.
God, help us to be an example of forgiviness and love to others.
Help us to have patience with others just as you have patience with us.
God, Lets us display self-control in all that we do and say.
God, help us to be more like you and show you to other each day.
In Jesus Name.
I decree that I will be an example of God and display his Fruit through each and every day!
“But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!”
Galatians 5:22-23 NLT

DATING IS no game. But pretend it is. Here are some rules-and tips for winning:

Rules of the Game
Tips for Playing the Game
The most significant part of dating is who you go out with. Why? News flash: Short of winning a bride or groom on a bizarre TV game show, you will end up marrying someone you date. If you date people who exhibit the character traits listed in Galatians 5:19-21, for example, you greatly increase your odds of marrying a loser. But if you date winners, it’s likely you will marry a winner.
It’s the stuff on the inside that makes someone a winner. Now, that doesn’t mean you have to date people you don’t like to look at. And it doesn’t mean that you should stop trying to look your best. But if you’re searching for someone to date, start by studying what kind of person a potential date is on the inside. Are his or her inner qualities consistent with yours? Do his or her standards match up with the Bible’s standards? If you can say “yes!” then you’ve found a winner.
REFLECT: So, why be careful about the people you date?
PRAY: Ask God for a date-and a mate-who meets his standards.
