Titus 3:8 “be careful to maintain good”
This is a faithful saying, and these things I want you to affirm constantly, that those who have believed in God should be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable to men. Titus 3:8
And let our people also learn to maintain good works, to meet urgent needs, that they may not be unfruitful. – Titus 3:14
WE ALL GO THROUGH SEASONS OF FAILING, SURVIVING, THRIVING.
We are all survivors of something!
The fact that you are surviving is proof that you have been through something!
How can you survive ?
