Beautiful

Post by Lynn Cowell

The gate called Beautiful might be the scale we hope will tell us the right number, the gym we join to become the right size or the mall we cruise through looking for the right outfit.

We go to the gate Beautiful and there we beg for what we need for that day: acceptance, approval and affirmation. It’s not enough to sustain us, though. Tomorrow, searching again, we’ll return.

With the power of the Holy Spirit we can say: “No more!” No more will we beg when Christ died to give us the acceptance we need. Let’s take His hand and look to Him each day for strength and approval.

You are perfect just the way God made you. That’s enough. You’re enough, precious one.

When I Wanna Be Somebody else…

When I wanna be somebody else sometimes, thinking there are far bigger and better things than what I do, I listen to my heart. I was created in this particular way for the particular things I do. It is truly the work of Satan that tries to distract me, make me look away at what others are doing. Some of us drive luxury cars. Some of us are Buy-Here-Pay-Here people.  Some women wear designer brands while some shop bargains. We are told how to look, what kind of wife or girlfriend we are, and what success really is…all by the media & society. There are many 4 letter words in this crazy world, but Love is the only one that changes everything, holding truth, holding future.

We are all created unique for what God has called us to do on an individual level for His Great Plan, called Life. Its difficult and can be really upsetting and confusing. Our faith is really tried in this chaotic world. Let us remember who we are, embrace our personal talents, and instead of covet…just love it.

I love this quote below:

“Remember: Satan is a cruel manipulator. He desires for God’s girls to get ensnared and distracted by competing and comparing. The more we look around and jockey for a position that’s better than the girl standing next to us, the less we remember God’s assignment for us. And that’s exactly what the enemy wants.

Our calling is never to “one up” the next girl. It is to raise up the name of Jesus and live His truths in an authentic way.”Lysa TerKeurst

You Are Loved

 

God doesn’t give up on us like people do.

We were saved by the blood of Jesus on the Cross, by God’s Mercy.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.

This is an awesome line to remember not only in the troubled, dark times of life, but always. You are not over. The most beautiful parts of life bloom after the worst of storms. What has scarred you, knocked you down, or near destroyed you is actually helping you discover who you really are. The greatest pain can be the greatest teacher. We must keep the eyes of our heart open, and in knowing that nothing lasts forever…be ready to receive the truth. You just may find that the worst thing has made you your best.

Remember who you are and where you are headed despite any negativity that you may face today. Let’s make the most of today!

God bless ❤
