Examine Your Life / Both The Good And No So Good!

Examine your lifePlease contact us if you have any questions or comments or would just like some encouragement?

A person does not examine their life just once and thinks they are done with that forever. Instead, we do it regularly to keep up with the changing times and events in our lives, to be aware of what is going on in our lives to figure out how we can, with God’s help, be the person that God wants us to become. ~ Bill Greguska

Take time to examine your life and make the best of what you have been blessed with in your time here on earth! Here are some encouraging scriptures about how to explore your life.

2 Corinthians 13:5  Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test?

Examine Your Life

There is no way around it. We all need to examine our lives! To live life out to the fullest, you need to consider your life to see where you are heading?

Do not be foolish by avoiding asking yourself simple questions such as, am I living the life that God intended me to live?

Another question could be, am I living my life to its fullest by loving God and loving others the way God intended me to live?


Why Should You Examine Your Life?

Reflect upon your present blessings of which every man has many – not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some. ~ Charles Dickens

To Grow Properly, Certain Rules Must Be Observed For Good Spiritual Health.

Take Time To Examine Your Life!

Examine Your Life, The Good, And Bad!

You can also ask a close friend who knows you well or an accountability partner to help you examine your life!

  • Read your Bible daily. Do not be content to skim through a chapter merely to satisfy your conscience. Hide the Word of God in your heart. It comforts, guides, corrects, encourages – all we need is there.
  • Learn the secret of prayer. Prayer is communicating. Every prayer that you pray will be answered. Sometimes that answer may be “Yes” and sometimes “No,” and sometimes it is “Wait,” but it will be answered.
  • Rely regularly on the Holy Spirit. We know that the Holy Spirit prays for us (Romans 8) and what comfort should be to the weakest of us. Stand aside and let Him take over all the choices and decisions of your life.
  • Attend church regularly. The visible church is Christ’s organization upon the earth. Christians need one another, we need to gather together to worship God, and nothing can take the place of church attendance.
  • Be a witnessing Christian.

  • We witness in two ways: by life and by word – and the two, where possible, should go hand in hand.
  • Let love be the ruling principle of your life. Jesus said to those who followed Him, “By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples if ye have love one to another” (John 13:35). The most excellent demonstration of the fact that we are Christians is that we love one another.
  • Be an obedient Christian. Let Christ have first place in all the choices of your life.
  • Learn how to meet temptation. The temptation is not a sin. It is yielding that is a sin. Let Christ through the Holy Spirit do the fighting for you.
  • Be a wholesome Christian. Our lives and appearance should commend the Gospel and make it attractive to others.
  • Live above your circumstances. Don’t let your circumstances get you down. Learn to live graciously within them, realizing the Lord Himself is with you.
Guidelines for Christian Living is excerpted from “Peace with God” by Billy Graham, published in 1953, revised, and expanded in 1984.

Living In the Past, Present, Or Future?

Remember, With God, You Never Are Walking Alone!

Examing your life and get on the narrow road!

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways, submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6

We all get involved with problems in life. Some are preventable, while others merely happen. I am sure what you are dealing with today, whether big decisions need to be made. Do you have problems with marriage, family, friendships, depression, anxiety, addiction, or whatever you might be struggling with?

There are solutions to your problems. It would help if you searched for the answers. Start now by determining in your heart that you want to live a better life. First, you need to examine your life, reflect on the real root of your problems and your strengths and ask God to help direct you.

  1. Some of you do not want anything to do with God or Jesus Christ.
  2. Some of you attend church to check off your good deed list like I used to do when growing up.
  3. But I hope most of us worship and praise God because it is in your heart because you genuinely believe.

My point is that without God leading your life, you will most likely end up living in what I refer to as a type of self-inflicted mini hell that I put myself through, all because I wanted to impress others, be accepted, and fill the desires of my flesh.

That way of life was before I got to know Jesus Christ back before 1986 when I went through drug and alcohol treatment. Since then, the Lord has taken that addiction from me. I was able to take off my mask. ~ Bill Greguska
