Hi, ladies!

This week’s verse is:

“And the peace of God which passeth all understanding, shall keep your minds and hearts through Christ Jesus.” ~ Philippians 4:7

When we are firmly rooted in a deep relationship with Christ, we enjoy a sense of peace that is beyond our knowing.  Even when the world around us is in a whirlwind, we can still be confident and calm.  That is because we know that when the Lord is with us, we have absolutely nothing to fear.

Be the Stars

Hey, girls!

Lately, I have been reading a lot of stories and doing a lot of research on stars and I was really inspired to write this! I really felt the need to share this with you all, for it’s something I feel very passionate about.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Be the Stars

      Look up at the stars. See how they glow in the dark, burning through the night sky? They illuminate the inky blackness. They make light so we can see. Just like stars function as a light in the night sky, we can be lights in this world of darkness.

     Let us speak truths. Let us defend our beliefs and what we stand for. With our Savior as the moon, lighting up the whole universe, we can be the stars, setting the world aglow with our words, our actions, and the truth. Aim for the sky as you make the case for Christ. Liberty. Truth. Justice. Freedom.

     When you look out of your window at night and you see the stars’ shiny glow piercing through the dark- look for you. You can be one of those stars out there. Use your voice. By speaking the truth and defending what’s right; you are acting as a light, irradiating through this gloomy, obscure darkness that has taken hold of our world. If we are not representing the King of light, then we are exhibiting the immoral attributes of the king of darkness.

     The darker the world, the brighter you must shine. As the stars are surrounded by darkness, they refuse to become apart of that tenebrosity. And so must we.  We have to set a firm foundation and reflect the light of truth. No matter what happens, what challenges or trials we face in the process, we can’t let that get in our way. Keep on glowing. Keep on shining. Keep on doing what’s right, no matter what the consequence.

     Make your choice. You can set yourself a firm foundation and let your light radiate; or, you can stand by and watch while the world becomes hopelessly lost.

     I know where I stand. I know what I need to do. I am going to burn bright. I am going to take place in igniting a fire that will eliminate the darkness.

     What will you decide?

     Come, take courage; be a STAR.

Works of Art

works of art

Did you know that you are a work of art? You are a work of art created by the Greatest Painter.

Have you guessed who the Greatest Painter is?

That’s right, it’s God.

You are unique in every way, and God made it that way. Wouldn’t it be boring if everyone was the same? I think it would be.

One thing that I tell myself all the time when I look in the mirror on a bad day and put myself down by telling myself that I’m ugly is that I’m the way God wants me to be. I am exactly the way he wants me to be, from the tips of my toes down to the last strand of hair. And it helps, and then I pray.

So if you’re having a bad day, just tell yourself that you are a work of art. And pray.

Have a great week,
