The book of Proverbs tells us that we need to cling on to Him which to me that means we should follow His teachings and do whatever it takes to be with God so we can share in God's life in heaven. When something bad happens to us and we don't know how to handle it we can always pray to God for help, instead of doing what may seem right to us may be wrong to God, that is why we should pray to Him for help. If we trust in God then he will help us to make the best of the situation. As long as we believe in God then he will forgive us. I know that if we confess our sins often so that we don't forget some of them later that he will forgive us as long as we are truly sorry for them, we do our penance and we ask him for forgiveness then he will forgive us.
Forgiving someone means that what happened between people is put in the past. The pain and memory will always be the person who had done the wrong is forgiven. Christians are to fear the Lord because of how powerful and almighty he is. God’s loves for everyone is gargantuan, so Christians are supposed to obey Him and His word. God tells everyone to forgive those who had hurt them.
Be kind to one another, and n... ... middle of paper ... ... all realize, we could be in many worse places in our lives than where we are today. Life happens while God remains ever vigilant, waiting for us to look up, reach out, and take his hand so that He may lift us up. Before the Lord can lift us up, we have to be still, stop complaining, and seek His face. He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. Our Father is always watching.
Another, challenge for humanity in waiting is changing one’s perspective from the results to the work of God in the present, acknowledging that no matter the outcome today in the end God will fulfill every promise and it will be good. In waiting there
Failures can be used as lessons so that the failure will not be repeated again. There could be long term failures that are crucial to life to remember and there could be short term failures that help a bit. One of my greatest failures in life that I've experienced and learned from would be from the time of my first grade year. I didn’t take school serious when I was in the first grade and made terrible grades. After this failure, it made change the outlook on school and I started trying.
We must also be willing to seek God's purpose for our life. When things around us seem unpleasant, we must respond by showing good judgement and we must take great pleasure in God's purpose for us. God overrules the plans of men to fulfill His purposes. Genesis 45:1-8; 50:20 We must learn that sometimes the opportunity for forgiveness takes a long time. If we have been offended, we must always stand ready to forgive and live our life as if forgiveness has already taken place.
In the community of Waknuk Joseph was considered the “Head Priest” of his religious group. Each time a deviation was notified Joseph would quickly stop everything he was doing to pray for forgiveness. Stopping everything to pray for forgiveness is a big thing considering that the deviations were not his. This shows that he does not want God or his religion to look down on himself. Lastly, Joseph is always trying to do his best because he believes God is always testing them.
Warning them of difficulties and betrayals that would follow, He emphasized several times that they should be prepared and pray that they “will not fall into temptation” (Luke 22:40, 46). This is a powerful lesson as it teaches me that I need to get myself prepared and ready to oppose temptation whenever I might see it in my life and not be afraid. It also indicates the power of prayer. When Jesus went to the Mount of Olives to pray, he asked God for His will to be done.

There is no other commandment greater than these.” The biggest problem with the church is that we can not perfectly carry out these commands. Fortunately, God uses imperfect beings for His perfect will. The church from it’s conception constantly fails loving the Lord with all it’s heart. The Israelites were always loving other idols. We, the church, fill our hearts with other things to love above God.
