Don’t you just love the way Jesus works? How God chooses those who will work for His glory? How He chooses the least of us to do the greatest of things? It brings tears to my eyes. God, if you use broken things, here I am!
God calls and uses the largest of sinners. Never requiring perfection, only openness and our love. There are no set of rules that you follow that will make Him love you more or less. Or make you more or less usable by Him. His unmerited favor is there for each of us. Accept Him as your Savior, love Him above all and you are His. Continue reading
Each month I would like to take you on a journey and show you what my #OneWord looked like. This is a personal journey, but one that I feel can benefit you as well. Especially if you are one who struggles with fear, anxiety, and worry as I do. God is doing amazing things in my life, as I rely on Him, understand His love for me and face the fears in my life. I pray that this journey is a blessing to you.
My Father has been doing an amazing work in me over the last 3 or so years. I have battled with depression and anxiety for more years than I care to count. My journey of healing started with a phrase…
It is the beginning of a new year and all around you hear about setting goals and resolutions. I think reflecting on the past year (or even the past few months) and setting goals is very important.
Michael Hyatt says:
“The practice of goal-setting is not just helpful; it is a prerequisite for happiness. Psychologists tell us that people who make consistent progress toward meaningful goals live happier more satisfied lives than those who don’t..” ~Michael Hyatt
But there is another thing that you will notice about the New Year. This #OneWord thing has taken over social media and the blogging world. Why? There are two reasons I think: Continue reading
Are you struggling with accepting God’s abundant love for you because of the enemies lies?
I was overwhelmed by the words in my head, as I sat with my head in my hands with tears streaming down my face. “Well yet again I am a disappointment. I am never going to be good enough. Why do I even bother to try?! I am so worthless.” Over and over, again and again, I hear these voices saying that I am not good enough, unworthy. LIES! All of them.
If you, also, are in a place where you lack joy and peace you may be listening to the lies of the enemy. One of the main reasons that we are not living in joy and peace is because we are listening to the wrong voice. Over the last few weeks we have talked about God’s abundant love for you, praying for help and guidance, finding the truth, and meditating on that truth. Today we are going to talk about what to do when we recognized those lies. How do we get rid of them? How do we step back into joy and peace? Because, it is all up to us! We have the power to get rid of those lies or to believe them.
Your heavenly Father loves you with a perfect and beautiful love. He knows absolutely everything about you, there is nothing you can hide from Him. And He desires for you to understand His love. Do you want to be intentional about accepting God’s abundant love for you?
Step three of accepting God’s abundant love for you is to meditate on the truth that you have gathered during your reading. Most people skip this step. They read their Bible to check something off of their to-do list.
“Meditation is one of the key ways to take yourself from being in the world to being in Christ.”

There are many ways that you can meditate on the word of God. As you read mark the verses that speak to you. Then use a meditation technique to further analyze you verse.
