But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed.Isaiah 53:5 ESV (via godmoves)
Has anybody ever actually gotten salmonella from eating raw cookie dough or are people just trying to stop me from living my life
At this moment in time I’m preparing my talk about UNVEILED for tomorrow and earlier today my life and dreams took two steps forward. Great things happen when the Lord closes doors to open others. *freedom* He whispers. *freedom* to chase your dreams. *freedom* to breathe in more Jesus. *freedom* to sing and speak and act and laugh and cry. *freedom* to discover yourself over and over and appreciate every quirk and curve. *FREEDOM* to remember, you’re not in control. Thank you Lord.
I’ve come to realize that you can’t depend upon other people for what you want, and you can’t be scared to go out there and get it. You have to dream hard, wish big, and chase after your goals, because no one else is going to do it for you. And even if things don’t work out, you’ll always be able to say you tried.Daily Relatable Love Quotes (via thelovewhisperer)
Idk I woke up normally this morning, earlier than I wanted but ya know, it happens. And I looked in the mirror & had the typical girl reaction..”ew” - and I ran and errand just in my “ew” state and it wasn’t until I got back home and was about to jump in the shower that i just realized that every single morning, every single day, every single MOMENT… There is someone who loves me so much, He sees me as flawless, pure and blameless even in my “ew.”
Every morning I wake up & The Lord says,”good morning, my beautiful daughter. Put on my armor and take on the world today.” Every morning. Every morning I am called worthy and beautiful and receive a new heap of mercies and joy laid upon me and it occurred to me that some morning & some days, I don’t accept it. I don’t delight in Him and say, “thank you, more please Father!” I wake up and say, “ew.”
I shall write on my mirror a reminder to change that.
Just my brain spills this morning.
It just blows my mind that God loves us so much. He calls us worthy and wonderful and loved and I know very few people who truly believe that about themselves. Growing up my mom always taught me to look at the source of my emotions. Why do I feel the way I do? What makes me feel that way? What about my personality is this effecting? These questions are so incredibly helpful when I’m going through a rough time or really just any time emotions take control and let me tell you, emotions in control is an incredibly dangerous thing. Think about it, when have you thought or acted clearly whenever you listen to your emotions? Maybe it’s different for you but as soon as I feel something I have to evaluate it completely. Is this a good feeling or a bad feeling? Is it rooted in trust and truth or is it a surface and fleeting situation? Throughout my thinking and feeling through life, that’s what me to unveiled. It’s the concept of the lie people believe about themselves. There’s plenty of organizations that focus on the result or the issue, but before we even get there, there’s a lie and if we can remove the lie, maybe we can remove the issue….
