Go for it!

"Always read my Word. Always study my Word. Always think about my Word. Think about it all day. Think about it all night. Make yourself obey it. That is the way to be a winner. Then things will go well for you. I am telling you what to do. I am giving you a command. Be strong! Go for it! Be brave! Do not be scared! Do not think that your job is too hard. Remember that I will always be with you. I will be with you in every place. I am the Lord. I am stronger than anything! I am the ruler of everything! I am God!” (Joshua 1:8-9)

Jesus is the ruler of my new life

"I used to think I had to obey all the rules. I used to think that was the way to be right with God. But I could never obey all the rules. I could never be right with God that way. God was not happy with me. My old self tried to obey the rules. My old self said that was the way to be right with God. I tried very hard. But I did not make God happy. God showed me that way does not work. So I asked Jesus to forgive my sins. I asked Jesus to make me right with God. My old self died. It is not the ruler of my life anymore. Jesus gave me a new life. Jesus is the ruler of my new life" (Galatians 2:19, The B-I-B-L-E).
