"Therefore I say to you, her sins which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little." . It's these grace-lined words that can bring a shame-filled or puffed up sinner down to her knees. Because there is truth there that sets us all free. I have been on both sides. I know the weight both lives can bear. I know the great mercy that flows when you sit at the feet of your Savior. . A new post on the blog. Link in profile.
"He is asking us to give Him our cares. Does He mean to leave all responsibility? No! He’s asking us to let Him carry our load, to let Him walk this road of life with us, and do the heavy lifting. What makes such cares difficult to carry are usually feelings; feelings of inadequacy, anxiety, sadness, being overwhelmed, etc. Jesus is asking us to give Him these feelings. The peace of God can guard our heart and mind from every anxiety—we can live anxious for nothing! He wants to speak into these pains and shine His light and peace into our lives." • To read more go to the link in my profile! • Day NINETEEN of the 30-day Nurturing the Neglected challenge is HERE! 🙌 I'm posting the ENTIRE 30-Day devotional—Nurturing the Neglected: A 30-Day Guide to Intentionally Loving Yourself—over the course of 30 days.

You don’t have to be afraid of being rejected by God when you are honest about your doubts, weaknesses, struggles, unfaithfulness, and sin. It is okay to get messy before God, because He already knows. But He wants to hear you, and He wants to heal you. He wants to know you and wants to be known by you. ♥️ @aultmade #thepointedlife Read more on our blog: 👉 #Linkinbio
The moment you get too big to help others... you’re too big. . . . Romans 12:3- Because of the privilege and authority God has given me, I give each of you this warning: Don't think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us.
God knows what He is doing with the timing of your life. Trust Him. His way is perfect. • • • • #dailydevotions #christianblogger #faithblogger #lampandlight #theeverygirl #jesus #proverbs31ministries #proverbs31woman #wellwateredwomen #gritandvirtue #thelittlethings #projectinspired #journeywomen #bibleverse #christianquotes #liveauthentically
Even though there are school shootings and cancer takes over, even though people drive drunk and racism is alive, even though panic attacks take over and fires burn houses down, even though friends move away and hearts feel heavy, even though we chase things that will never fill us, even though life can be so heavy and numbing and hard, YET I will rejoice in the Lord. // my rendition of Habakkuk 3. YET GOD. That is my hope.
There will come a day when you wake up and finally decide what type of person you want to be. You’ll eventually get sick and tired of changing who you are, or hiding who you are, based on your circumstances, so you’ll pick your own path. It may not happen for a while. You may have to get your heart bruised and broken in order for you to snap out of your immaturity and make a choice- but soon enough, you will. And I hope you choose to be the type of person that is rumored to feel too much I hope you love without question and I hope you prefer the rain over the sun I hope you have faith in the things that cannot be seen, and I hope you defend them like they can be Most of all, I hope you’re the type of person that stays warm in this cold, cold world
Family Fun! ♥️
Morning beautiful women of God! Today my prayer is that all of you who are suffering from a heavy emotional burden, would be healed and fully released. I pray that the burden would be lifted and your heart would be filled light and love. Holy Spirit come forward and release. Let these beautiful women walk in the image you created them to walk in. 📷: @kaylaa_lynnn
I think sometimes we have the habit of fixing problems not at the root but at the branches. Yes, I and many other people ( Relationship Q& A vid!!!!! ) can throw at you all these relationship advice but will the wisdom ever materialize in your life if you don’t deal with the root of why your relationships/friendships are unhealthy. We have to let God really get in there and wash us anew. You can’t add clean clothes on top of a pile of laundry and think that won’t make everything dirty. You have to get to the root and I am encouraging you to allow God to have full acess to your heart; to your dirt. It won’t be comfortable but you won’t get to the beauty of an authentic and Godly relationship if you don’t deal with the issues of purity, selfishness, loniless, hatred, shame, lust, control...ect. This week on the blog I provide 5 tips to live out your singleness that will help you grow. @siempre_marie and I will also be speaking more on this topic on insta live this Thursday, so stay tuned!
Mummy tip Tuesday: Listen to your daughter when she comes to you for advice or just to talk. Never turn her away because you’re feeling exhausted or overwhelmed. Your daughter needs a friend, and if she’s looking for a friend in you, that’s a good start to a positive relationship. Building strong bonds is healthy & refreshing. (Familyshare.com ) . . . . . .
Have you ever had a dream -like a business idea or like signing up for a race or go on a backpacking trip- and haven’t find the courage to do it? You’ve felt afraid of failure or what others might think? ~ I’ve been there too! In fact that was me before my first #burpeesandjesus post. Nerve-racking😅 ~ But, God literaly sprinkled encouragement against fear throughout the Bible and some God given friends👯♀️. (Thanks God for friends🙌🏽 ) ~ The bible says, "There is no fear in love. But perfect loves cast out fear." ~ So the point is, that when we are afraid it doesn’t come from God -because there’s no fear in love and God is love. ~ Tho, I encourage you to PRAY about your dreams. Let Him be your guide. And push yourself out of your comfort zone. You’ll see how that feeling can trully empower you💜.
This week I’m asking God for bigger, bolder faith. I’m praying that He gives us the strength, courage and wisdom to ask and believe for Him to tangibly move in our everyday lives. ⠀ ⠀ Let’s remember and remind each other that no need is too small and no request is too big. In doing so we can trust that the more we step out the more He will reveal Himself to us. ✨ ⠀ ⠀ “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1
In this thing called life, things will take us by surprise. Loss, heartache, betrayal, and much more. One of the things that I think helps, is remembering that NOTHING shocks God. When things happen, God isn’t like, “Goodness gracious me Gabriel - look here. I did not see that coming. I don’t know what to do. There can only be one plan.” His plans for us can still come through because He is Alpha AND Omega. He didn’t just witness us coming into the world and then ‘wash’ His hands and say “Next!” He cares and knows everything. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wherever you are on the map, God sees you and hasn’t forgotten about you 🗺❤️. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV
The next step God is asking you to take MAY NOT be big or glamorous. But it’s worth it. I can promise it’s purpose won’t be for you to be put on a platform, for platform sake. & that can be hard to hear. But God has something SO much more for us. ⠀ ⠀ Our next step in following God & our dreams starts in getting alone with the Lord, away from all the noise/opinions and hearing what He actually has to say about your purpose. It’s in those obscure places, where we aren’t trying to capture it on camera, where we allow ourselves to be still & hear what God has for us. 😭🙌🏻⠀ ⠀ Friend. Don’t be discouraged. God’s next step for you may seem small & insignificant. It may not answer all your questions, but it is exactly what you need. ⠀ ⠀ It may be to have coffee with a friend, to commit to spending time with him before sharing what you think you know with the world, it may be trying something risky for God- but whatever it is- it has massive purpose. ⠀ 👇🏻👇🏻 Don’t let the false facade of lights & fame draw you away from Gods intentional process for your life. Buy in to the journey He has y o u on. Even if it seems messy. Follow Him & you will be fulfilled. 💗😘

One of my biggest challenges is consistency — consistency in my thoughts and words that I whisper, cry or declare over myself. In the days of victory, I pat myself on the back for doing the best I can and achieving my goals. However, one tiny mistake and behind closed doors, I am already beating myself up, thinking, “if only [this]” or “how I wish [that].” It is often hard to believe the praises of others when in truth we believe the opposite about ourselves. Harmful words are easier said in private, behind closed doors. But here’s the thing: GOD LISTENS EVEN IN OUR PRIVATE CHAMBERS. He hears every derogatory word you pin in your identity. The lack of consistency with our private belief and public perspective reflects the lack of trust in what God says who we are. If we believe we are less, we do less. Who we think we are in private is eventually who we will be in public. But, the more we trust in His word, the more consistent we are in our thoughts of love and grace. Mistakes will happen but it is better met with words of love and mercy than words that paralyse and kill. The words we tell ourselves in private are building blocks to how we perceive ourselves in public. Let His whispers of great love and affirmation shape your private belief. #thewipmovement PS: it’s an everyday battle. Do you struggle with a similar thing too?
When God asks us to remove a stronghold that takes us away from His love, His voice is the only voice that matters. These are some questions that can help you tune in to the leading of the Holy Spirit. What does God's Word say about this? (Write it down )What is His promise in this situation? (Hold tight to that )Where is He leading me? (Take one step toward that ) As we listen to the answers, we find God's best for us. If we are off track, we find our way back to where we belong. Prayer: Lord, thank You for bringing wise people into my life, but may I turn to You first every single day. Thank You for helping me stay on track in my faith and in my heart. In Jesus' name Amen. #first5 #proverbs31ministries #HolySpiritbemyguide
Fear is not of God. When the Bible talks about having a Godly fear, it means a respect of God, although I do believe there is an element of Fear when it comes to God! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love what Paul says when writing this letter to Timothy: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There are so many things we could fear when speaking out and sharing our faith and making disciples and witnessing to others. BUT, God has given us power and love and a sound mind so that we do not fear and are not ashamed! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you need help getting over fear in any part of your life, we're holding a free event...Come join us Wednesday, February 21, to hear HE called Her community member Luz, @_determinadas_ , speak on Overcoming Fears to Achieve Your Dream! Link in our bio @hecalledher ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ IN HIM 💕Adri ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ P.S. Ready to overcome those fears? Comment your favorite power or love emoji to announce you're taking that first step! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

L O V E Hopes & Trusts . . In this precarious political climate it is so easy to adopt positions of thinking. I’m ‘this’, you’re ‘that’. We become the moral, ethical and spiritual judges of one another. We become suspicious of one another and waste our relationships by writing people off and adopting positional mistrust. BUT... We are called to love. ‘Love your neighbour as yourself’, ‘love one another as I have loved you’. We are all God’s favourites - yes even those who are wildly opposite in their political worldview. I’m not saying don’t have wisdom or discernment or boundaries... but let’s stop the hate. Hope for the best and look for the best. Love hopes and trusts. . . . . . #lovehopes #lovetrusts #love #lovequotes #political #loveothers #friendship #hope #trust #christian #christianlife #soulscripts #bedeeplyrooted #biblegram #lampandlight #propelwomen #pursuitcommunity #proverbs31ministries #weareunveiled #communityovercompetition #womenintheword #wellwateredwomen #shereadstruth #shetheroar #shelaughsproject #createdtocreate #instagood
Last month, I made the decision to chase God again. • I had been angry with Him for way too long and allowed the enemy to cripple my every being...I finally said no more! • I'm living in so much light right now! Praise God for helping me out of my darkness...after only one whole month! I've been spending majority of my days with Him. • Growing, talking, praying with Him. A little girl in need of her Father. • I haven't felt this much joy in a very long time! The clouds have finally lifted! I have been in an incredibly inspired and creative mindset lately...which leads me to this! • My cellphone is a huge part of my life. It's something I carry everywhere I go. While there are many cons, I love seeing all the pros there are to having a phone. And since I spend a lot of time using it... • ...I knew I wanted to stay reminded of who God is...and who I am in Him. • Which is why I felt moved to really focus my energy and creativity on creating Phone Wallpaper/Backgrounds. Something you can read and see everywhere you go, every single time you pick up your phone. Something that keeps you reminded of how special, loved, and cherished you truly are to Him. Something that keeps you reminded of how God is always with you...through the tears, through the aches, through the pain, through the darkness. • I'm sad that I wasted so many days being upset with Him, while I could have been basking in His Light all this time...but I truly believe God had me go through that...so I could love and follow Him that much more. • I pray that you stay warmed by His Light, because the truth is...my days without God...are NOTHING compared to my days spent with Him. • Tag a friend who needs to hear this💞✨💗🙏🏻💕👑 • Click the link in my bio to purchase this phone wallpaper 👉🏻 @trulybeckypeter 💕
He has saved us and called us to a Holy life ! Not because of anything we have done, but because of His relentless love and grace ✨💛 Those are great news ! & great knowledge to start the week by 😉 • • El nos salvo y nos llamo a vivir una vida santificada ! No por nuestros propios méritos , pero por su inmenso amor y gracia ✨💛 Esas son buenas noticias ! & buenos pensamientos para comenzar la semana 😉 • • | #whenshebelieved |
There was a season in my life I knew the Lord was teaching me how to fight, not in my flesh but in the Spirit. • The attacks were relentless and I felt like I was constantly being beaten and left bleeding on the ground. • I would feel hopeless and helpless but lying there feeling like things would never get better and never change, He began to whisper to me truth. He assured me I didn't have to take this lying down, that I was more than a conqueror and as His daughter, a warrior princess of the Spirit. • That holy defiance rose up in me, and as I wiped that blood from my mouth, I felt the Spirit burning in my soul and out of me. Time to make some counter attacks. • Now, every time the attack would come and I would feel it sucker punch me in the gut, all my insecurities screaming in my face and doubts mocking me, I would run to my kid's room, blast my music and worship God. • I would cry and stomp and fling my hands in the air, no matter how I felt, no matter what it looked like, He was still worthy. • It became clear to me that if every time the Enemy tried to beat me down with his regular schemes, that always seemed to work, he certainly didn't want me worshipping God. • He wanted me to doubt God, to resent Him, to accuse Him, to become bitter and stay far from Him. The counterattack was to run to Him and choose to worship the one who was always able, even if He had not yet moved on my behalf. • We don’t have to take it, shout God’s goodness till He brings the victory! • “The LORD will march forth like a mighty hero; he will come out like a warrior, full of fury. He will shout his battle cry and crush all his enemies.” Is 42:13
“You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress simultaneously.” It’s almost the end of February, two months into the new year and we are clinging to this fresh breath of grace today. What hope we have in the founder and perfecter of our faith! “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.” #shelaughsproject #mondaymotivation
👆🏼Things I tell my anxious heart on a Monday. It doesn’t have to be breakneck, it doesn’t have to be hustle—because patience can be a competitive advantage, too! . Sitting in a room all last week at The Copywriter Club #IRL conference, scooping up wisdom from the top writers in my industry decades older than me, I remembered that. Whatever your dreams, play the long game, for it doesn’t matter how slowly you go … what matters is that you don’t stop. 💪🏼😉
Personality tests. They’re a thing. I’ve filled out the bubbles for two formats of personality questionnaires that have nailed me. I’m an ENFJ on the Myers-Briggs test and an Enneagram 1. After taking these quizzes, the summary of my personality assignment doesn’t tell me anything that I did not already know about myself, but it does give me a good point of reference to direct others that might want to understand me a little better, as well as a good personal inventory summation. . Here’s what these tests teach us about our identities: we want to be known and understood. . Not many wish to walk through life unknown or misunderstood, do they? . We crave connection with others. We long for a proper understanding both internally and externally of who we are and why we are here. . Getting to know yourself better is critical to gaining perspective in how to best serve others with the unique compilation of humanity, heart, talents, and skills God has created inside of you. Self examination helps make way for deeper, more intentional spheres of influence because it offers the best launch pad for connecting your unique character qualities and abilities with the needs of others. . I invite you to read more of my guest blog on my dear friend @haleybodine ‘s site today. #linkinbio #heart #yourinfluence #propelwomen #wahm #sahm #wellwateredwomen #incourage #proverbs31ministries #focusonthefamily #amwriting #cultivaterenewal #shereadstruth #words #truth #pin #writersofig #writersofinstagram #motherhoodrising #myersbriggs #eneagram #personalitytests #knowyourself #serve #bless #identity

Good morning and Happy Monday! From today’s #first5 : 2 Kings 12:2-3 (NIV ) "Joash did what was right in the eyes of the Lord all the years Jehoiada the priest instructed him. The high places, however, were not removed; the people continued to offer sacrifices and burn incense there." While we are blessed to have wise counsel, our first and greatest Counselor is the Holy Spirit. "And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—" (John 14:16 ) This Counselor, also known as our Advocate (someone who fights for you ), will never lead you astray. When we are off track, this Counselor knows where we should go and what to do (or not do ). He affirms wise counsel, and leads us away from poor advice. When we are in a crossroads, we are invited to stop right where we are, listen for the Counselor's voice and surrender to His leading. Demolish all the strongholds Regardless of what people advised or didn't advise Joash, he had God's words to lead him. The high places grieved the heart of God, and He wanted them removed. (Deuteronomy 12:2-4 ) That was clear. They were marked by idol worship and spiritual darkness, but popular with the people. Other kings had also ignored these high places so that the people were appeased. When God asks us to remove a stronghold that takes us away from His love, His voice is the only voice that matters. These are some questions that can help you tune in to the leading of the Holy Spirit. What does God's Word say about this? (Write it down ) What is His promise in this situation? (Hold tight to that ) Where is He leading me? (Take one step toward that ) As we listen to the answers, we find God's best for us. If we are off track, we find our way back to where we belong. Prayer: Lord, thank You for bringing wise people into my life, but may I turn to You first every single day. Thank You for helping me stay on track in my faith and in my heart. In Jesus' name, amen. “
CAN YOU BE A CHRISTIAN FEMINIST? • As a working mom of two daughters, feminism touches my life in many places. And given my personality, I'd be a really good feminist - if I was one. But I'm not. • People often assume my stance on feminism is adopted from my conservative upbringing, but I arrived at my conclusion about this after years of study and questioning long-held beliefs. I have deep concerns about the melding of Christianity and feminism, and not because I hold some extreme view of gender roles (I don't ). • Why are Christians flocking to feminism? Because until now, the church has had no framework for embracing female believers. So much time has been spent telling women where not to be, little has been said about woman’s part in the Great Commission. We have no framework for showing women how they can impact the kingdom for God’s glory. We have no talking points for confronting abuse in the church. Our women’s ministries talk about how beautiful-in-God’s-eyes we are instead of equipping women to engage theologically. • Christian women are being sold short of God’s great intentions, and they know it. The monstrous void within the church has led many women to feminism as the answer. The problem? Feminism won’t fix this. • Today's post breaks down why Christians cannot rightly claim Jesus was a feminist (he wasn't ) and four reasons feminism is not the answer for women in the church.

#DearFutureHusband : Tonight I see the color of your eyes & the depths of your heart & the canvas of your soul a little more clearly. You run through the course of my veins & I can almost feel the touch of your kiss... So thankful that Jesus calls into existence the things that do not yet exist, the vision He breathes over my life, the pictures of a life with you. It’s such a distant thing but I see the man that you are. You are insightful, you call things into being, you light up any & every room, you are the greatest, most kind, most loving human being I could ever know - you study me like your favorite book as if you could never get enough or possibly learn the sum of it all, you point out & speak life into the things & attributes you see in me, you are the wildest adventure I have ever taken, you truly see me, you truly love me – perhaps all I really wish for is for you to see & love all the good, messy, weird, quirky, insecure, dark, hidden parts of me, the parts I am afraid to expose to the light. It’s both my greatest fear & my biggest desire. I envision your passion & vest & energy for life, I see your leadership, I see your heart for the Father that will never quite unravel, I see the deep places of Jesus with you, I see the car rides & music & dim lit coffee shops & beach sunsets & laughter & good conversation & a million kisses goodbye. I believe I am most myself, most free & confident & loved & unhindered when I am with you. You bring my soul to life, you show me parts of myself that I was convinced were dead or nonexistent, you bring the light in my eyes to a place of sparkle and Hope, you are the very, very, very best part of me and you know the depths of my heart with the utmost provision, understanding, & vulnerability unlike anyone else. babe, I don’t know where you are on this dark & rainy February night but it’s almost as if I can reach out & smell your faint Cologne on your cotton shirt, feel your breath on my neck, respond to your kiss on my lips. Tonight I am letting that be enough in the whirlwind that is both missing and loving you. You are the most beautiful song I will ever sing... Keep my side of the bed warm for me... I love you.❤️

I am known. As a single person, I think this can be a tricky statement, maybe it holds the same difficulty for you as a married person as well. But being single, I am known in a few ways: my family knows me probably for my faults and quirks the most, my friends (especially those of over 20 years ) know me through good, bad and ugly but being alone there is a lot, I feel, that is unknown. Simply because it’s just me. Above in Psalm 139 it says “where can I go from your spirit? Or where can u flee from your presence?” I have noted next to it ‘no running away’ , I can be a runner. I can, as most of us can. We run when it gets too close, too much, too vulnerable. Maybe this is a weakness in your marriage as well... here’s the thing, I am fully known. Inside and out. The embarrassing and sinful. The beautiful and the quirky. All of it. And still verse 17 says “How precious are your thoughts towards me, O God!”. I, we are still fully loved. There is no running away only a surrender to the hands that lovingly “formed my inward parts” vs 13. With that surrender, a desire to be searched and tried and led “in the way everlasting” Vs. 24. So I don’t run, I turn towards and I am known and loved in the most beautiful way.
This is so true!
True transformation always starts with Christ. Everything else is just denial in disguise. We mask so many of our wounds and then pretend to be healed. No more of that. Glow Over Glam is all about total transformation in women’s lives with the focal point being and will ALWAYS be Christ! There is nothing outside of Him and in Him are all things. We have the power to become everything He says we are...and it all starts with one step of obedience. Not a diet or a makeover, but a step in the direction He leads.
Jesus, meet me here. I need you. All of you. I need to refresh my Spirit with you. I need to abide in you. I need to rest in you. Jesus, meet me here. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ — ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Soaking in some time with Jesus and preparing my heart and mind for something special @jenniferedewaard and I are putting together for you all tomorrow!

The world may not be able to see you yet, little one (unless maybe I’ve eaten 1 of my 8 meals that day 🙈 ) but I sure know you're there. When we found out we were expecting in Hawaii we went through so many emotions all at once: being terrified, overjoyed, shocked. Just like that, the Lord knew what we needed even more than we knew ourselves. We have grateful hearts, and we are thankful. So very thankful for the beautiful gift of new life and the way it's been entrusted to us.
I don’t believe I will ever reach the end of exploring the blessings available to me through childlike trust in my Abba! If you struggle with trust, I get it. Trust is hard, especially when you’ve been burned and trust feels risky. But learning to trust the Lord (a continual process ) has been the greatest blessing to my life. In fact, I’d go so far as to say it is one of the top three things we are on this planet to learn how to do. And, oh, the blessings that emerge!! 💞

I just want to quickly debunk the “self made” attitude that’s going around.⠀ ⠀ Saying that I’m self made is like a cactus saying that it grew on its own. The cactus would be completely neglecting the fact that the sun, rain, and the nutrients in the soil significantly impacted it’s growth.⠀ ⠀ SELF MADE IS A LIE.⠀ ⠀ I am the complete and utter byproduct of:⠀ 1 ) God’s goodness, faithfulness, and love, 2 ) my key influencers - parents, pastors, friends, and 3 ) the experiences that shaped me.⠀ ⠀ And so are you!⠀ ⠀ What a heart check?! 💙⠀ Carrying this perspective has kept me grounded, and crazy thankful for the fact that I am not where I am because of me — it’s quite the opposite!⠀ ⠀ #SheTheRoar

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." Philippians 4:8 “For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.” Matthew 12:34 b The perfect trio-chocolate, hot chocolate, and Barnes and Noble! Today as I was strolling through isles of books, I was reminded of the two verses above. What goes into our minds and hearts is important! It dictates how we speak, think, and act. Sometimes, I allow garbage to enter my mind. While it may subtle and subconscious, I mindlessly let tv shows, social media, opinions of others, and my own selfish thoughts take the place of God's truth. I trade godly wisdom for earthly wisdom by filling my mind first with things of the world and second with His Word. Today, I am challenged to be intentional about what I allow in my heart and what I think about! Am I putting lovely, admirable things about God into my mind? Am I consciously filling my heart with His truth? Do I surround myself with worldly perspectives or with God's? As God's children, it's important we align ourselves with God's truth before anything else! That's where we find true life, nourishment, and guidance! In my insta story, I'll share some resources that have been a source of godly wisdom in my life and helped me fill my mind with truth! What books, Scripture passages, or other things have helped you think upon Jesus? - - - - #shereadstruth #lampandlight #propelwomen #biblegram #soulscripts #bibletime #prayerjournal #christianliving #sheworkshisway #wellwateredwomen #lifelivedbeautifully #graceupongrace #proverbs31ministries #biblestudy #goodnewsfeed #creativechristian
We will search for anything that will give us even a moment of happiness, a moment where we feel satisfied. 😌⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 👉🏼 But those moments are just moments. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ☝🏼 God's love and the relationship he so badly wants with us is the ONLY 💥 thing that will truly satisfy us. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 🚫 Don't search for a moment BUT pursue a life long exciting relationship and life with God. 🎉🙌🏼 ⠀⠀ 📔 Romans 8:39 "neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #philippians4movement
There is ALWAYS MORE to look forward to, MORE than meets the eye, MORE to your story, MORE to be thankful for, MORE to give, MORE to discover, MORE to learn, MORE victory to proclaim, MORE blessings to receive, MORE fruit to bear, MORE beauty to reveal, MORE growth in faith, MORE peace to experience, MORE mercy to grant, MORE wisdom to gain, and MORE reason to love. - Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, - Ephesians 3:20 - These words may take on a different misson but the message is always the same: No matter the season of your life, God has immeasurably more in store for you. - What does IMMEASURABLY MORE mean to you? #chosentoreign 📸: @andrearhowey
I used to be afraid of connection. Yet, to explain more... I used to be afraid of connections with other females.. conversations with women scared me and intimated me because I knew what kind of woman I was and I am. I am not the woman that you will find having a tiny little conversation about another mutual female friend in my or your vehicle just to pass the time in our quick ten minute drive together. I would be the woman that if you felt a certain way about a mutual friend. I would strive to boldy ask if I could pray with you. Connection and community is something that I used to push away and shove away because it just did not make me feel good... did you catch that? "Me" Oh, Lauren...you will quickly learn what God had and has in store for you.. Sometimes, I still struggle with face to face connection. However, now I wonder if that is just because I am such a hyper woman that needs to tone it down a smidge.. either way. I am on your team. I want to pull out my chair and ask you to sit and stay awhile. I want to hear your uncomfortable stories. I want to hear your joyful moments. I want to hear the messy and mucky moments. But more importantly God welcomes you with all that and more...the messy, the mucky, the miserable, the uncomfortable... ☕Yet, I am proud of this woman because the thing that scared me (connection and community ) is one thing I believe God has called me to step out in faith for...and so here I am yall... I love you @simplychoosejoy tribe..☕
How do you renew your mind? Conform to God’s truth. Partner with God to allow His truth to change your thinking. Give God full permission to transform you. One of the best decisions you can make is to give God full access to every part of you to come into alignment with who He created you to be. #thepointedlife

IDENTITY|| God is speaking to me a lot about this lately. I think a lot of us would be getting where we need to be further + faster if we understood well who we are in Christ. One of the biggest traps of the enemy towards Christians is getting us to believe we are defined by our achievements, earthly accomplishments, relationships, status, etc. but we are SO much more than that. We are loved simply because He made us, desires relationship with us, and delights in us. There’s nothing we can do to make Him love us any more or any less. The greatest calling we can receive is to be called God’s children. Simple as that. Let’s not complicate it and let’s walk in a way that shows we believe it. 🙌🏼💞
