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.

To Women Struggling to Get Back Up After Separation/Divorce

To Women Struggling to Get Back Up, ​ It seems that a story always has more impact when it comes from the lips of someone that has lived it.  Divorce is a struggle for some, knowing that there is a light on the other end and that there is hope may be all you need to make it. I have struggled through divorce and now I have a passion within me to help those that are working through the same difficulties that I experienced. Personal growth and healing are difficult, there is no denying that, but when it comes to finding your path to healing there are many that are ready and willing to help. Divorce is not something that one can simply get over or get past in an afternoon, it takes dedication, devotion, and often help from places you never even knew existed. Sometimes having someone simply sit with you, no words exchanged, is enough to give you the strength to take one more step. It is my hope and sincere desire that women that have hit rock bottom, those that ma

Why Should I Write My Testimony

Words have the power to change lives.  With a single word we have the power to change the lives of those around us, do more for good, and completely alter the course of human events. That being said, your personal testimony is so much more powerful than you could ever imagine. It can be hard to open up but it can also be so incredibly rewarding and freeing. How often have you been lifted up by the story of the trials and tribulations of another? How often have you wished to find someone that has been through what you have been through? Sharing personal testimony helps to guide others in their time of strife, to help them through difficult times that they might not feel like they can handle, and to inspire them to do more and to persevere. Personal testimony also has the ability to free our own minds and spirits from things that we may have been struggling with. Keeping things inside, keeping your story to yourself has the potential to cause turmoil within yourself. Sharing
