THE 7- UPS-(encourage yourself in the lord)
1. WAKE UP!!
Decide to have a good day.
"Today is the day the Lord hath made;let us rejoice and be glad in it"
2. STAND UP!!...(i dont mean a morning glory,
though i'm a young man full of testosterone :P)
For what you believe in. Stand for something or you will fall for anything.
"Let us not be weary in doing good;for at the proper time, we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we haveopportunity, let us do good..."
3. DRESS UP!!
The best way to dress up is to put on a smile.A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.
"The Lord does not look at the things man looks at.Man looks at outward appearance;but the Lord looks at the heart"
I Sam 16:7
4. SHUT UP!!
Say nice things and learn to listen.God gave us two ears and one mouth,so He must have meant for us to do twice as much listening as talking.
"He who guards his lips guards his soul"
"Gossip betrays confidence.Avoid men who talk too much"
"Listen to advice, accept instruction andin the end, you will be wise"
5. LOOK UP!!...
To the Lord.
"I can do everything throughChrist who strengthens me".
6. REACH UP!!...
For something higher.
"Trust in the Lord withall your heart, and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledgeHim, and He will direct your path".
7. LIFT UP!!...
"Do not worry about anything;instead PRAY ABOUT EVERYTHING"
*nah i didnt get a hefty sum from 7-up for this.
