2:7 "rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving."
"as you have been taught" -( ? ) and ( ? ) have been taught God's Word
"abounding in it with thanksgiving" - create an atmosphere where you give God praise for their salvation.
Don't just pray Jenn ... believe and abound in it.

***There are so many scriptures that I could use today but I just selected a few special one and I love many different translations...today...The Amplified said it in a way that I loved***
I Peter 5:7
Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully. (Amplified)
DO NOT let your hearts be troubled (distressed, agitated). You believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely on God; believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely also on Me. (Amplified)
You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You. (Amplified)
Be Blessed Today, My Friends...I Certainly Am!
