We spend so much time getting ready for this future, stressing over what hasn’t happened, and setting plans for what’s next that we forget to live in the moment. We forget to celebrate how far we’ve come. We forget that life isn’t always going to unfold how we want it to—but maybe that’s the most beautiful part.
I am going to stand strong in you because you are my promise, because you are my hope, because you are my strength and you never fail me.
Being a Christian is not about making your life spotless, but rejoicing in the beautiful mess you were created to be. And doing your best to honor God in all your imperfection because you are His.
Because our God is far bigger than anything here on earth—so what do we have to be afraid of?
Don’t let fear hold you back. Your God is here—for you, for me, for all of us—calling us home.
I’m going to step forward in faith, with confidence, with hope that whatever I face I won’t have to face alone. Because with God in my heart, I won’t.
Be an active Christian. Not a timid Christian. Not a passive Christian. Not a perfect Christian. But one who loves with everything you have because that is how our Father first loved us.
Know that no matter what happens next, you have a God who loves you. And there is nothing to fear.
God doesn’t want to compete with the distractions of the world but desires to see us make time to be in fellowship with Him, not just on Sundays but in those quiet, still moments throughout the week.
I tried to be the perfect Christian, and it turns out that God just needed me to be myself.
