These verses are rocking my world right now in the best of ways!!! There are so many things this world throws at us, & often at such a fast pace that it is truly easy to become anxious and even stressed.There are so many unknowns,…
We live in such a “me” centered culture. So much of our lives we spend thinking about how we can make our lives easier, how we can be happier, how we can get what we want. We spend our days focusing on ourselves, with little thought to how we can be a blessing to someone else.
“If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it.” Matthew 16:25 (NLT)
For so many of us, we are going about finding fulfillment all wrong! We are living for ourselves, but scripture makes it clear, that the way to find life, is to lose our own life…our own ways…our own self-centered tendencies!
So today…seek to find what it is that Christ ransomed you for. Seek to love others, and find ways to serve. When we get our minds off of ourselves and on to how we can love others, it is amazing how much happier we become. There is great freedom in living beyond ourselves!
If you are reading this now, you need to know that your life wasn’t and isn’t a mistake! Before you were born, God thought of you. Yes, YOU!You are so very truly PRECIOUS to God! #youarevaluedyouareloved#Godbeautifullyandwonderfullymadeyou#JesusdiedbecauseHelovedyouso
When my kids were young, I used to get so stressed out when we had to deal with a sin issue in their life. I stressed because I wanted better for them, & I just wanted them to choose well. Now…I understand that God is allowing us, as parents, to see things in their hearts so that we can help them get victory in their lives at a young age!!
I am so grateful to be able to come alongside my children to help God mold and shape their hearts to be more Christ like. I am so grateful that I get to work on their character….(EVEN THOUGH IT CAN BE REALLY TOUGH SOMETIMES), to help them to walk in the freedom and abundance that God desires for them to walk in.
When you have a kiddo who is working on having a good attitude….you do all kinds of things to help them get the victory!!! I will not grow weary in their training! I will press on, be persistent, do what I can, & let God do what I cannot!! It is the great honor and priviledge we have as parents!
In all of our life’s pursuits, in all of our searching out for knowledge, and in our desire to do great things that make a difference, seeking out how to build our homes should be at the top of the list. In our homes, hearts grow, love grows, character grows.
In our homes we have the opportunity to create an atmosphere of peace and joy….a much needed place where our family has retreat from this crazy world.
In our homes, we are training our children and setting an example for them and their future families. In our homes we spend time with family and friends, enjoying one another’s presence.
At the end of the day, there are so many little things that don’t really matter, but our homes…..can change the world!
