Big things are finally starting to happen, and months of praying and praying and praying are finally starting to pay off! God is so so so good and his promises are true!
Life is beautiful & so are you!
Look up, and thank God. Even if you have nothing to be thankful for, say thank you for the cross!
I can’t wait for church!
High hopes. Keep me in your prayers tomorrow!
I’m at a women’s conference at my home church with some of the most amazing women I could possibly be around.
This morning, an incredible speaker spoke to us about what it means to be beautiful, and how to have an intimate relationship with Jesus.
Here’s what I’ve processed this far.
God makes us beautiful. I am me and you are you. We should not look at other women and think…”gosh, I want to be her.” We are gods own creation. He has created us with our own type of beauty and our own callings.
It doesn’t matter what other people say about us… What matters is what Jesus says about us, and Jesus says were beautiful! When we call ourselves fat and ugly, we are speaking over Gods word and drowning him out. You are beautiful. I am beautiful. Because we have the spirit of The Lord within us.
Relationships are extremely important to us women. We want a man who will share his true feeling with us. When we make covenant relationship with a man, blood is shed. When we make covenant relationship with God, blood is shed. But in a covenant, we have to talk to each other. Marriage is a developmental process that happens in our lives. That’s how we need to look at our salvation with Christ. He will transform us from glory to glory to glory.
When were in a relationship with a man, we want to know every little detail about him because somehow, if we know the little things like his first crush, or his favorite teacher… It makes him more of ours. But the question is, how many of us are like that towards Jesus? How many of us are craving to know every single detail about him?
That being said, reading about someone doesn’t make a relationship. Relationships are a two way street. Relationships require communication.
God wants our hearts. When were connected to his heart, he’s connected to ours.
So when communicating with God, how do we hear him speak?
1. Quiet yourself. Be still to know that HE IS God.
2. Fix your eyes on Jesus.
3. Spontaneous thoughts ARE from him!
4. Write it down so that it becomes more clear to you.
Don’t just believe IN God. Believe him. He Perseus us to our potential. He calls us out of our identity, and into the identity He has for us.
As the weekend is approaching, I want you to know that you are in control of your happiness. No one can control how you feel. They may AFFECT your mood, but you are always in control of how you handle it.
Do something this weekend that is positive for you. Go out of your way to make someone smile. Get off your butt and go out into this beautiful world and take advantage of every breath you have!
And lastly, remember that you are beautiful in every single way, in your own kind of way. Don’t let anyone make you believe otherwise!
