Monday + Motivation

Don’t quit, you got this. You are closer to your goal than you were yesterday. A new day means a new opportunity!

We can never run dry when we have God as our source. He is our source for life, anything we need and want is found in Him.
When you connect a hose pipe to a tap it takes time for the water to flow out of the opposite end, but soon enough it begins to overflow. The same thing happens with our spiritual lives, the more we stay connected to the Lord and drink from his well, soon enough we begin to overflow with the fruits of kindness, love, joy, peace and so much more. And as we overflow we begin to touch the lives of the people we come into contact with.
Have A Fantastic Week!!! #shereadstruth #proverbs31woman #christianwomen #verseoftheday #bibleverse #bible #biblestudy #devotional #biblegirl #biblegram #christian #womeninchrist #women #girlpower #fulfillment #satisfied #grace #monday #monday #jesus

I think back to who I was 5 years ago and I feel for her. That Jessi didn’t know any better. She was striving to do something significant. She hustled hard believing that everyone followed the golden rule and it would all come back to her if she just kept pushing and striving and achieving. She thought she was doing what she had to do, what she thought she should do. Trying to get clear amidst all the distractions and noise.

She just didn’t realize the missing piece. No striving or achieving or hustling required. There is only one thing she needed to stay motivated and inspired. It was free and it had nothing to do with what SHE could do and everything to do with simply receiving.

Happy Monday everyone! Today is going to be a lovely day! How do I know that? Because it's a gift from God! Isn't that a great thought to start out with?! 💖💖💖

I want to live a life of surrender. •
I want to live a life of obedience over sacrifice.

The most beautiful, meaningful, raw and deep moments in my life cane because I simply said YES and surrendered to His plan for my life.

We don’t always have to know the answers. All we have to do is trust. •
Will you say YES with me today? If you want to live a life of surrender leave a “Yes” 👇🏽in the comments or share your experience of surrender. I would love to hear your story 🖤

Happy Monday! This week we’re taking every “failure” that we stumble on and using it as fuel to take us to the next level 🙌 Fall seven times, stand up 8 💪 #yougotthis

A year ago and it’s been such a bittersweet journey! So much to share but where to even begin. I ponder all these beautiful and messy seasons that have come and gone in this past year ... ( blog post soon to come, I’m waiting on the Lord to release me to share my story ) •• For the source of Your pleasure is not in my performance or the sacrifices I might offer to You. The fountain of Your pleasure is found in the sacrifice of my shattered heart before You. You will not despise my tenderness as I humbly bow down at Your feet.” - Psalms‬ ‭51:16-17‬

When your type is growing (knowing, believing and resting in their identity in Christ) you take on the HEALTHIER qualities of the number your arrow are pointing to (this is the opposite direction from under stress). You cannot get to this place by your own strength. You get there by seeing your need and asking the Holy Spirit to enable these healthier qualities to be INTEGRATED into who you are so that He is glorified. It is when you are desperate for Him, that you start to grow. So, today, recognize your weakness and need for Christ. Go to Him, express your need for His mercy, compassion, strength, and care to transform you into His likeness. Pray specifically for the healthy qualities of the type you integrate to (you don't become this type, just take on some of the healthier qualities) and watch as He answers your prayer.

I'd love to hear how this growth has taken place in your life, so leave a comment below!

Our good shepherd!❤️🐑☝️
.
God is often pictured as a shepherd, gently caring for and
guiding his flock. He is powerful, yet careful and gentle.
The shepherd is caring for the
most defenseless members of his society: children and those
caring for them. He holds us- even in our weakness- close to his heart, carrying us through life! .
He will feed his flock like a shepherd. He will carry the lambs in his arms, holding them close to his heart. He will gently lead the mother sheep with their young.
Isaiah 40:11 NLT

It's not always easy to do this and I find myself just as guilty as the next person of simply letting my days go by. I want to live more intentionally though. I want to make a plan for my days and follow it through. I want to be intentional about the relationships in my life and do my best to be present in them. xo 📷 by @life_lettered

Happy Monday, friends! What’s on your to-do list today? I’m working on several new things for the shop, and can’t wait to share them all with you!

As you go about all your tasks, I wanted to bless you with this sweet encouragement today. Walk in the triumph that is yours!

“But thanks be to God, who always leads us in TRIUMPH in Christ, and manifests through us the SWEET aroma of the KNOWLEDGE of Him in every place. For we are the FRAGRANCE of God among those being saved and among those who are perishing.” -2 Corinthians 2:14-15

1 Joyful are people of integrity, who follow the instructions of the Lord.
2 Joyful are those who obey his laws and search for him with all their hearts.
3 They do not compromise with evil, and they walk only in his paths.

/ / D O N ‘ T T E M P T M E / / Why do we give into temptation? Why do we lose the battle, many times before we even begin? How did Jesus overcome His temptations? Often times we give into temptations because we give in to our flesh. Our spirit and our flesh do not desire the same things. Our flesh desires things of this world while the spirit, things of heaven. When Jesus was being tempted on the mount, He over cake temptation the only way anyone can, with God. In the Bible, God showed us how to over come temptations, we just need to look a little deeper. Why didn’t Jesus give in? It was because He was God-driven, not need driven. Jesus was comfortable on waiting for God to provide instead of jumping ahead of God and meeting His own needs. We give in to temptations because we don’t wait for Him, waiting for Him is like waiting for rain in a drought, or at least that’s what we think, but that isn’t the case. God provides on His own time, we just need to do what the Word tells us and wait on Him. Temptations come to test us, though many times we struggle through them and end up failing along the way. But each time we go through them, we come out stronger than we were before. The only way to overcome is with the power of the Word. Jesus rebuked Satan by quoting Gods Word and that was enough for the devil to leave Him alone. Don’t tempt me you may say, but I say bring it. The only way we can become stronger and grow in our faith is by defeating temptations and how can we do this if we’re not tempted?

We have to choose to clothe ourselves in love. Think about it. We are saved because of God's love and mercy. Our words spoken in love give life.
Choosing to love someone who is being unloving shows compassion and forgiveness.
Because God loves us, our salvation is eternal. Even when we continue to sin. We can't lose it. Now that is unconditional love. We show God our love when we are repentant for our sins daily and we extend love to others.
Let's clothe ourselves in Love.
It is what ties everything together.

“Through his powerful declaration of acquittal, God freely gives away his righteousness. His gift of love and favour bow cascades over us, all because Jesus has liberated us from the guilt, punishment and power of sin!” ROMANS 3, @passiontranslation

It’s hard to think that this sweet face can drive me 🤪 but yesterday I had a moment of overwhelm. All the feelings of anxiety and pressure hit me. I have a go to method to get out that I’ve shared many times on here and it’s to write down the thoughts and combat them with the truth of God’s word and what He says about it. ❤️
....
I started asking for His peace to just come and in a few moments I began to hear a calm assurance within remind me that I had a choice. I didn’t have to pick up the lies of the enemy and carry them with me. I could so easily give them back to Jesus and continue living in faith that He would give me the time, the opportunity, the moments to get all the things done and still tend and love my kids. Overwhelm did not have to overtake me and I could choose to keep walking in faith that God had it in control and His plans would prevail no matter what it looked like. And y’all as I kept walking and going on in my day speaking those words to myself - peace showed up. It came and those fears and lies left me like that. 🙌🏾
....
I’m not sure what Monday feels are like for you, but I’d like you to know you can give it to God. You can’t pour from an empty cup, I’ve tried 🙅🏾‍♀️, get to the peace giver, comforter, the one who holds all of it in His hands and get your peace back. It’s waiting for you in His presence ❤️ Happy Monday, friends!

LIVE LOVED... "Live from the abundant place that you are loved, and you won’t find yourself begging others for scraps of love." .
.
Living loved is living a life unoffended, secure in your identity, and full of grace. So today, I'm committing to live loved 💕

These four words have been on my mind and increasingly been my pray for these four walls that we call home. Because that’s what Jesus says to me. Especially in the past few days. As I get frustrated at hitting my breaking point again and again.
Come Empty. Leave Filled.
____
He wants us to run to Him empty. Feeling shattered. Knowing we having nothing to give. With the full confidence that He desires to and will surely fill us with Strength, Power, Bravery, Hope and Assurance.
____
Every time we come. Every moment we need Him. Every hour of every day. Come Empty. Leave Filled. Don’t hesitate to come.

Lord, give me a bigger faith, than the smallest mustard seed, deeper than the ocean blue, stronger than the raging sea. A faith that does not waver, when the storms of life rush in, planted in fertile soil, rooted in Truth within. ⠀

Give me such a faith, that travels sea to sea, to share the gospel of Jesus and proclaim His victory. And when my faith trembles at the waves, what if’s, and fears. Teach me to be still, and remember that You are near. ⠀

Strengthen my faith, dear Lord, so that I can walk on these waves…trusting You, loving You, as You lead me along the way. Amen. (a prayer for your week from my heart to yours - @gretchensaffles) #WORDbeforeworld #shereadstruth #whereimplanted

Jesus, please make us aware of our deep need for you and help us to live accordingly. Amen.

the other day i blurted out a prayer — one that i hadn’t been actively thinking about... it just flew from my lips — god... cleanse me... and i immediately tried to retract that request out of fear for how painful it may be... i will always believe that our spirit knows what we need to pray for even when we can’t form the words ourselves... and i’m usually always so grateful for that.... until it starts putting together prayers like that... 😩 that’s not an easy request but i’m sure god’s answer is going to be “yes... coming right up - let me grab my chisel and wash cloth.... “ #sharonelizabethphotography #prayerjournal #christianblogger #christianwriter #gritandgrace #gratitudedaily #smalltowngirl #rvaweddingphotographer #rvaweddings #shereadstruth #seekhim #seekhimfirst #thisismycommunity #rosegoldjewelry #rosegoldengagementring #itsallinthedetails

This is how I'm starting out my week! How about you?
.
This entire passage is hopeful because God is faithful and He has a plan for our lives. We are full of purpose!...
.
For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the Lord , 'plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.
.
Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.
.
I will be found by you,' declares the Lord , 'and I will restore your fortunes and will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you,' declares the Lord , 'and I will bring you back to the place from where I sent you into exile.' - Jeremiah 29:11‭-‬14 NASB

Arrived in Florida yesterday after a long day of travel, went to the beach, had dinner by the water, went for a run this morning, but the most refreshing thing I’ve done yet in comparison to all those things is having a cup of coffee and conversation with my dad on this porch.

Sure the water is amazing, the bike rides are perfect...but I want to remember loving my family & spending time here the most. Today we chatted about loving people like Jesus did & it reminded me it’s never about me with all my needs. It’s about me using what I’ve got now to love people where they’re at.

Monday, you’re off to a great start.

I have a confession -- which some of you may already know.
.
.

I am in love with Monday. 💚
.
.

What the $%^&? Why?
.
.

Who is this crazy chick. Hear me out.
.
.

To add, for me, Monday has a sweet reminder that this day signifies a new week for another opportunity to create a brand new fresh start. Whether it be in your relationships, life or business.
.
.

Monday smells like possibility. 😍 Monday has this feeling of a "let’s get it!" attitude. I am always on high power and conquer the most on a Monday, why is that?
.
.

It’s because I decided on Sunday night to pray for a productive and guided Monday.
.
.

The feeling of giving will always be my favorite feeling. It's not about the "money." Yes, money is great obviously, but I am totally serious when I say money is NEVER going to be your true driving force on why you want to jump out of bed on a Monday and genuinely feel eager, excited and PUMPED to start "work."
.
.

How many more Monday's are you going to allow yourself to dread? How many more Monday's do you even have left?
.
.

Make your Monday's count. #entrepreneurmindset

“What a fake. I know her life isn’t that good.” <— What I *don’t* think when a friend posts her highlight reel of life on social media.
.
Instead... “Good for her for seeing the good in today! For catching a moment in photo when her kids are snuggling after I know she’s dog tired and grouchy from that newborn baby.”.
.
“Look at her and hubby going out on a date! Get it, girl! I see that answer to prayer when last week y’all weren’t even speaking.”.
.
Friends and community in real life are so important. Behind the scenes, they’re praying and see those highlights as praises. 🙌🏻.
.
Posting the positive means you’re taking the good with the bad. Keep sharing those babies in their 5 seconds of calmness!.
.
Keep praising your husband and family! (<— The Enemy HATES this. 👻 He wants nothing more than to tear your family apart.).
.
What’s your highlight for today? This is us at the beach a while back. Our happy place. ☀️ Highlight for today in my stories. 🍩

📝 July Inscribe the Word is here!
.
I am so humbled to introduce our new July Scripture writing plan this month. If you have been following along with our #inscribetheword plans this year, you will notice we've been inscribing the Epistles.
.
There is a general theme running through the New Testament Epistles we inscribed this year; heresy. The early church dealt quite often with heretics who came out from the church but were not of the church. (1 John 2:19) The apostates warned about in the Epistles we inscribed, distorted and perverted the Gospel and the teachings of Jesus. They mixed some of the Gospel in with their interpretation of the truth. Paul, John, and the other authors of these Epistles warned against those who not only preached a contrary Gospel but those who gave ear to false teachings.
.
In praying about this month's theme, the Lord spoke to my heart and said, "How will You know heresy and false teachings if you don't know what I have spoken? Remind yourself of My Words and Ways, Erika." 🙌🏼
.
And we are doing just that! Join us as we Inscribe the words of Jesus with The Sermon on the Mount. 💛
.
The link for this month’s plan is in our profile. 👆🏼

When we come to Christ, we are given the Holy Spirit as a deposit of our heavenly inheritance (Ephesians 1:14), as a seal upon our hearts (Ephesians 1:13), and as a permanent resident within us (Hebrews 13:5). But we have the choice to stumble about in our own strength, saying “I can’t,” or embrace the power of the Holy Spirit and say, “I can.”
.
.
Today, I’m choosing to access the power that is already mine. What about you?

Man, that’s something we all just need to sit with a moment, isn’t it? Can we say that we thank God when our hearts are broken? Because we know He is sovereign and works all things together for the good of His people?
.
It seems that every single day we either hear on the news, experience in our own families, or have a friend come to us with a story that all prove the same thing - this fallen world is so, so broken, and there is so much pain and suffering. It’s awful. And it’s everywhere. But the only way we can ever get through is if we keep our eyes fixed on the Lord, if we know His character, if we know His Word, and of we cling tightly to that “belt of truth”, never letting it go.
.
If you are facing a heavy trial or loss or heartbreak right now, may I encourage you to get in the Word? Read the story of Joseph. Get in the Psalms. Read Romans 8. Reorient your thinking around the truth of the Word and God’s heart for you. Only then will you be able to agree with Oswald Chambers and thank the Lord for a broken heart. 💔
.
Have you experienced this before? Has there been a time when your heart was completely broken but you came to the place of being able to thank God and praise Him for that trial? We would love to hear about that and rejoice with you in God’s grace! Please do share below 👇🏻.

We can so often forget what God has done in us and for us. Perhaps we're like the Israelites longing for the very days we prayed we'd be delivered from, or like the prodigal son coming back to our father with our tail between our legs realising that true freedom is in Him. There is grace for all of these situations and many more besides. The key though, is to abide and trust. Abide in the everlasting arms of Father God for He is our absolute constant, immovable and steadfast! Even when things feel and look otherwise, He is still at work to save you, even from the things you think you want! 👣

Several friends and I have been going through @priscillashirer‘s #armorofgodstudy, and in it, she points out the crucial importance of not relying on what we think God is saying or what He has said before or how we feel about what He might be saying, but on actually what He says.
.
Numbers 20:7-12 illustrates this in a very sobering way - “Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, “Take the rod; you and your brother Aaron gather the congregation together. Speak to the rock before their eyes, and it will yield its water; thus you shall bring water for them out of the rock, and give drink to the congregation and their animals.” So Moses took the rod from before the LORD as He commanded him. And Moses and Aaron gathered the assembly together before the rock; and he said to them, “Hear now, you rebels! Must we bring water for you out of this rock?” Then Moses lifted his hand and struck the rock twice with his rod; and water came out abundantly, and the congregation and their animals drank.” Then the LORD spoke to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not believe Me, to hallow Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them.”
.
Wait, what? Water came gushing out, so everything is fine, right? Why on earth is Moses now not being allowed to enter the Promised Land?
.
Because he did not do what God commanded, which was simply to, “Speak to the rock”, not strike it. Moses relied on his own feelings and understanding and what God had said at a different time when He actually did command Moses to strike a rock for water (see Exodus 17:5-6). He didn’t realize that God can change in what He is telling us to do. What He desired for us last year may not be His command for us now.
.
But Moses, based on past experience and personal understanding, thought he knew better than God did what God actually wanted him to do.
.
That is so sobering. How often do I neglect the clear command of God because I think He actually means something else.
.
Have you ever made this same mistake, too? What happened? What did you learn from that?
.

Be sober-minded, be alert. Your adversary the devil is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for anyone he can devour. Resist him, firm in the faith, knowing that the same kind of sufferings are being experienced by your fellow believers throughout the world.
‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭5:8-9‬ ‭CSB

There is no question that if you are following Jesus and on your walk with Him that the devil will be there to tempt you. The devil wants to think and believe that life would be easier without Jesus and that there are so many “rules” to being a Christian. Jesus tells us to resist the devil, to stand firm in our faith, and to know that these trials will come. Don’t fall for the schemes of the devil because he promises you everything but in the end you end up broken and devastated. When you choose to stand firm and trust Jesus you end up victorious and full of life and joy! Choose joy in Jesus today! 💛 ▪️

Sexual abuse isn’t a dirty little secret that should be whispered about behind shut doors. It needs to be part of our regular conversations so silent victims can throw off the suffocating shame and come out of hiding. It needs to be in our regular conversations so VICTIMS become SURVIVORS and OVERCOMERS who transform into HEALERS themselves.
Join me in our series on sexual abuse in the bible. What the heck does God have to say about all this? (Link in bio)

In every situation--read the news, call the doctor, buy the groceries, drive to work, answer the doorbell--may we remember to ask, "Who is my neighbor?" ⠀

May we answer that not only with our words and our knowledge, but also with our choices and our action. #mondaybenediction

Everybody wants what successful people have, until it’s time to do what successful people do. But unfortunately there’s no shortcut to success:
.
We have to be willing to sacrifice and work hard for what we want, day in and day out when no one is looking, when it’s hard, and when we feel discouraged. It’s a choice, every day, to show up and do the work whether we feel like it or not. It isn’t easy, but it is simple and anyone can do it! Even you. I promise. ❤️👊🏻
.
Looking to make some healthy changes, to get back to fitness, eating better or perhaps just making a little time for you as a mom amidst your long days? Keep your eyes peeled for my post tonight! 👀

God is so good that he turns our weaknesses into weapons against the enemy. I was not given my weaknesses to hurt me but to show that the strength of God is evident in my life. God is good y’all! .
.
“Although he was crucified in weakness, he now lives by the power of God. We, too, are weak, just as Christ was, but when we deal with you we will be alive with him and will have God’s power.”
‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭13:4‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Each of our Prayers for God’s Warriors has a different word with a corresponding prayer on the front and a Bible verse on the back. There is also a Dig Deeper section at the bottom of the verse card with some extra related Scripture verses. Our hope is that this will help guide you as you pray specifically and often. .
.
Today, we pray for joy. Lord, may we put all our trust in You as You fill us with Your joy. May we be thankful for all things and be able to choose joy over sorrow. Let no one be able to take our joy away, but instead, let us be a radiant reflection of You. .

Our weekly#dwitw365 blog post is up! This week @_stephduff takes us into what God showed her in the story of Elijah from 1 Kings 19. Does your faith waver when God doesn’t “show up” the way you expect Him to? Do you have an idea in your mind of what way He may speak to you that involves a big powerful moment rather than a still small voice?

“How often do we search for God in the major things? The Creator of the oceans and stars will surely show up in ways that are noticeable to many, right? I, like Elijah, have searched for God in the fire, the earthquake, and the strong wind – maybe not literally, but I am searching for cloud formation sentences, or the flickering of power in the midst of trial. I look for clear, obvious, obnoxious evidence of the Lord speaking to me. But when did I start believing that God was obnoxiously loud?”

It’s Monday. A new week. Maybe a new season for you? Eating well + making a lifelong commitment toward faithfully taking care of yourself requires more than quick fixes. Diets may be based in short term, but the real change is for the long haul. To stay motivated is a lifestyle in itself. You have to tie it to something greater.
.
You want to go forward? Well first you have to look inside yourself, see the truth of how you’ve been, and courageously put words to what you know you want. Then you have to go upward, tie your purpose to something greater than yourself. For me, it’s my relationship with God + my desire to live a healthy life after living such a terribly unhealthy one. The two go hand in hand, of course: in both there’s grace, forgiveness, and a belief we can be healed.
.
Inward. Then upward. Then forward.
.
So here’s a scripture to remind you. Keep it with you, or find others that resonate. (Or go to the @shereadstruth app and download this image in their phone backgrounds collection. It’s going to be on my phone, so we’ll be in it together.)
.
You are greater than your struggles because God made you to be. Ask Him into this health journey.
.
And as for this week? Pause before a food decision and ask this simple question: Does this honor my body? My walk? My desire to #choosejoy?
.
It’s a lifelong process. We’re imperfect but empowered. You can do this.
.
Go forth and eat greens this week, friend. You’ve got this.

How do I get my booty out of bed on a Monday morning?⠀

☀️I put my alarm in a place that requires me to actually physically get up to turn it off.⠀
☀️I throw on the kettle to get a warm drink in my hands asap⠀
☀️I crack open my favorite devotional to fill my cup before I face the day (currently Embraced by Lisa Terkeurts of @proverbs31ministries)⠀

What's the one thing you NEED in order to get your day started right?

Yesterday, my favorite internet site/insta account/overall awesome woman Kat Harris at @therefinedwoman, posted about shifting perspectives and embracing our selves and our bodies instead of degrading them.
.
I commented with a sentence that, at the time, was convicting, but later became a ball of fire in my belly that I can’t quench.
.
“The same body that grew and nurtured [my daughter] is the one that I am degrading because my thighs touch? Goodness gracious.”
.
I can’t take it anymore. And I can’t live like it either. I long for my 25 year old body, but that body hadn’t MADE PEOPLE YET. What am I prioritizing here? My body is a miracle-maker, at the VERY LEAST. And it’s time I stopped checking it’s measurements and spoke some life over it.
.
So I’ve had a thought, what if we started something here. What if we took a moment, every once in a while, not to feel insecure when we post a picture of ourselves, but to INTENTIONALLY revel in it? To THANK GOD for the abilities, skills, THE BEAUTY he instilled in us from the beginning.
.
My challenge to you is this - find a picture, a selfie, whatever, of yourself that you like (YOU CAN DO THIS) and post it. Then in the comments, say something that you are so thankful God gave you.
.
I’LL START : This picture is me in a hotel room this weekend. I was looking at myself in my bathing suit and speaking, honestly, mean things over myself. But then I looked at my reflected face and noticed that the lighting made my skin look smooth and dewy. SO I TOOK A PICTURE.
.
I’m so thankful God gave me a body that can put on a swimsuit and go swimming with my family. That can hold both my babies at one time while they learn to swim and splash and play with their grandparents and aunts and uncles. Seriously, not everyone can do that.
.
What can you find about YOURSELF to thank God for TODAY?!
.
Let’s use a hashtag to designate the pictures we’re using to INTENTIONALLY thank God for how he made us! How about #feelingmyshine?

“So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭12:1-2‬ ‭MSG‬‬ #fullandwell #fullandwellwelcoming #kingdomofpriests #everythingissacred #nothingissecular #goodnewsfeed #bedeeplyrooted #desiringgod #hereadstruth #menofgod #shereadstruth #lampandlight #wellwateredwomen #proverbs31ministries #womenintheword #propelwomen #soulscripts #gritandvirtue #graceupongrace #communityovercompetition #rhythmsofgrace #walkingreflections #givemejesus #wordbeforeworld

So thankful for this truth!
・・・
Nothing is ever wasted with God. No mourning, no storm, no season of weariness or suffering, no time of searching or waiting—He uses all circumstances to bring Him glory. Sometimes this is hard for us to believe in the thick of it all—the trials and storms that surround us and in the questions that plague our hearts.⠀

The beautiful thing about the ways of God is this: in our trials, our losses and our heartache, we can still trust Him for His steady #graceupongrace. His grace is greater than our circumstances and the storms of life don't last forever. The darkness of our circumstances is the perfect canvas for God's grace to shine brightly. The circumstances of your life will change, but God never will, and this is what we hope in!⠀

God uses the broken moments of life to show us He is Healer. Whatever circumstance of life you are in right now, trust Him for His grace. As William Cowper once said - "behind a frowning providence He hides a smiling face." Let us rest in His sovereign grace. - @gretchensaffles

Life can be hectic with constantly being on the go and having a checklist of things to get through for each week.
________________________________________________
Sometimes, if I’m honest, it can feel like church gets added to that list for me. I have too much going on and no time to rest and unintentionally turn church into just another thing I need to just cross off.
________________________________________________
This week on the blog I share some insight I gained about ensuring I’m not putting church on my checklist and that I’m keeping a clear perspective on the fruits of rest. Go check it out! Link in bio.

The colour yellow is the colour of sunshine, happiness, joy, energy and hope. May God show you His yellow side this week and supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. #ShowYourColours

One who has been touched by grace will no longer look on those who stray as “those evil people” or “those poor people who need our help.” Nor must we search for signs of “loveworthiness.” Grace teaches us that God loves because of who God is, not because of who we are.

God waits for you to communicate with Him. You have instant, direct access to God. God loves mankind so much, and in a very special sense His children, that He has made Himself available to you at all times.
