God is Creating Something Magnificent Within You




Early this morning I was sitting on my couch thinking about how our once empty living room just a few months ago finally feels warm and inviting. Yes there is more that needs to be done but it is okay because I can continually work on it and I know its going in the right direction. This morning I thought to myself " This is ours and I love it." As I sat there I also started thinking about how God does the same with us.

Just as this room we are works in progress never expected to be perfect for everyone but we are always perfect in the eyes of our heavenly father and designer no matter what. Just the thought of that brings me great joy.

I encourage you today if you struggle with feeling down due to any lack including the lack of love from others try to think from a perspective of decorating a room.

When u decorate you do not expect everyone to love your space but you absolutely know that you will love it because you created it and it is what you wanted. Guess what??? This is exactly how God loves you. It doesn't matter who dislikes you. It doesn't even matter what lack you may be experiencing. Redirect your focus my friend and stop trying to gain what was never important to go after in the first place. Instead sit back and rest knowing that God not only loves you but He is constantly creating something magnificent within you that will far exceed any lack you could ever imagine.

Psalm 139:13-14
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.


Blessings,

Why Should I Pray After Divorce?

    Divorce is something that more and more people are being faced with each day. Each case is fundamentally similar and worlds different so finding a way to cope with the daily struggle is essential. For many, there is a real struggle to see the benefits of prayer in a time when you feel like everyone and everything has let you down. Feeling lost and alone is typical following a major life change like a divorce and as such something as simple as prayer can be incredibly powerful and moving. It is not an uncommon feeling to be bitter and feel as if God let you down and allowed your divorce to happen, there is another way of approaching this, however. For most, the feelings of bitterness only deepen as the days go on and many feel that they cannot approach God because God allowed divorce to shake their lives to the very foundation. Though these feelings of bitterness are common, they do not have to rule your life or rule your recovery and personal journey to

I Can't Process My Truth

No, I'm Not Okay  As a mother watching anyone cry out for their mother as they struggle to breathe does something to you. I remember when my friend called and asked me to watch the video of George Floyd. It was disgusting, inhumane, and sadly not the first video I have seen like it. Yet for for me this video took me to another place mentally.  The fact that this keeps happening and on  top of that it could have been my husband, brothers, or grandson infuriates me. Also knowing this could happen to any woman in my family, including myself, reminded me no one is safe in my family that includes man, woman, or child.  So I tried really hard to distance myself from the media outlets to take time to process this, and to be honest I'm still at a loss and I can't process this. I can handle many things but this I cant and sadly this isn't the first time. It keeps happening over and over again. Sadly, I have had to process other stories like this one for some time now, and I
