Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.” Colossians 3:12-15

  1. Hi Krystle,
    I read a nice article the other day by Tricia Goyer referencing scriptures for teens to remember. I have attached the article. Praying for all of you!!!

    Here are five things teens need to remember and Scriptures for them to memorize to help with key issues they face today.

    Remember you don’t have to figure everything out yourself.
    God is there for you. He’s only a prayer a way. He wants to help guide your decisions. When you pause to pray you are welcoming in His wisdom and strength.
    Memorize this:
    If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. – James 1: 5

    Protect your heart from unworthy people.
    Keep it guarded as if you were guarding a $10 million diamond… although your heart is even more priceless! There are so many people who want to get close to you for the wrong reasons. They want something from you (sex, unhealthy friendships, revenge on someone else, etc.) and are not really thinking about you. They want to get close for selfish motives. Guard your heart and keep it protected because your whole life will depend on it. Don’t let people in who you don’t trust that they have your best interests in mind.
    Memorize this:
    My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. Put away from thee a forward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee. Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. – Proverbs 4: 20-26

    Let God fight your battles.
    One of the hardest things to handle as a teen is gossip and rumors being spread about you. Of course your first defense will be to defend yourself. But instead of fighting back with words, the best thing you can do is turn to God and ask Him to fight for you. Jesus knows the truth, and He wants to defend you. When you feel like letting your words fly turn to Jesus instead.
    Memorize this:
    The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace. – Exodus 14:14

    Don’t feel as if you have to carry those burdens alone.
    Worried about a test? Concerned about a friend making bad choices? Did your dad lose his job? Has your mom been sick a lot lately? Those worries are a lot to carry. Sometimes it’s hard to think, hard to sleep. But, you don’t have to carry your worries alone. Ask Jesus to carry them for you. Take a minute and picture yourself placing them in His hands. Whenever those things come to mind again, remember Jesus is holding them for you, caring just as you care.
    Memorize this:
    Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. – 1 Peter 5:7

    Trust Jesus to direct your path.
    I remember when I was a teen being overwhelmed with decisions about the future. People were asking me what college I wanted to attend and what career I wanted to pursue, and I was just thinking about next week’s Calculus test! Thankfully we don’t have to figure out life all alone. We don’t have to figure out our future career alone or our relationships alone. When you trust God and seek to do His will He will guide you. He’ll bring people into your life to help you. He will give you peace about decisions you make. Jesus doesn’t leave you alone to try to figure things out. Aren’t you glad about that?!
    Memorize this:
    Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. – Proverbs 3: 5-7
