The Real You In Five Years Week 1 “Help my life is in a rut”

Romans 13:11-14 But make sure that you don’t get so absorbed and exhausted in taking care of all your day-by-day obligations that you lose track of the time and doze off, oblivious to God. The night is about over, dawn is about to break. Be up and awake to what God is doing! God is putting the finishing touches on the salvation work he began when we first believed. We can’t afford to waste a minute, must not squander these precious daylight hours in frivolity and indulgence, in sleeping around and dissipation, in bickering and grabbing everything in sight. Get out of bed and get dressed! Don’t loiter and linger, waiting until the very last minute. Dress yourselves in Christ, and be up and about!

Psalm 39:5 "Indeed, You have made my days as handbreadths, And my age is as nothing before You; Certainly every man at his best state is but vapor,"


Psalm 90:10 "Seventy years are given to us! Some even live to eighty.” "But even the best years are filled with pain and trouble; soon they disappear, and we fly away."


Psalm 90:12 "Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom."


1 Peter 1:24-25 “People are like grass; their beauty is like a flower in the field. The grass withers and the flower fades.

Matthew 7:2 That critical spirit has a way of boomeranging.
