God made you promises, and not a single one of them is that He’s going to dump you in the desert for life.
Bring me light when I’m in darkness and a path to follow when I feel like I’m wandering in circles. When doors close in front of me, give me new ones to open. When people walk away, give me courage to seek out relationships that both build me, and honor you.
We were created in His image—our bodies, our muscles, our curves, our breasts, our butts, our wrinkles, our rolls, our smiles, our shoulders. Instead of hiding, we should stand proudly and confidently
You are the only place I want to seek refuge. It is in Your heart that I will always feel at home.
God, please take my problems and remind me that you are bigger than them. Please take my fears and show me there is nothing to worry about when you are by my side.
Whether it’s something small- like chatting with a neighbor- or something like this, God puts these calls on our hearts for a reason. It’s His way of saying, “I have something for you. Do you trust me?”
I’ve decided to stop feeding into the pounding in my chest, the fear of the unknown, the nervousness surrounding what’s to come and just let it all happen. I’ve decided to stop questioning everything and start listening to you, God.
God didn’t make a mistake with you. He didn’t fail in His creation or forget to finish. He didn’t lose sight of your purpose and no matter how absent He feels, He didn’t (and won’t ever) leave your side.
What if every painful thing you faced was actually pushing you forward, pushing you down a different road, a better road, the road you’re meant to be on?
I tried to be the perfect Christian, and it turns out that God just needed me to be myself.
