Works of Art

Did you know that you are a work of art? Well, you are. 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,

Mornings Spent with Jesus

2017-06-28

Hi, girls!!

I apologize for slacking recently.  This past week I’ve been serving as a huddle leader for FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) camp (amazing organization btw, so totally check it out), and it consumed the majority of my time.

Today, I want to talk to you about how I start my mornings and I want to encourage you to start your day this way too!

Every morning after I wake up (or at least most mornings), first thing I do is make my juice.  Nothing like starting the day off with something fresh!

Then I sit at the table and pray.  I talk to God about everything I feel I need to tell Him.  I could be thanking Him, asking for forgiveness, praying for others or even for myself, that He would give me wisdom and help me to always do what’s right.

DSC_0693Then I go into my devotions.  I’ve been reading one chapter from 10 different books of the Bible each day.

Today I encourage each and everyone of you to start your day with the Lord.  Spend your morning with Jesus.  Even if you don’t have the time to read your Bible right away, pray.  Talk with God, let Him know what you’re feeling.

For me, starting my day off spending time with the Lord really helps me throughout the rest of the day.  Even if that time isn’t long, staying connected with God is so important.  It strengthens out relationship with Him.

How do you start your mornings?  Do you have a time of day set aside specifically for God?  How do you stay connected with Jesus?

Have a great week, girls!

Taking Life One Step at a Time

one step at a time

We often find ourselves getting so caught up in everything all at once.  Social media, sports, friends, all of our goals in life.  While all of these things aren’t bad, they can still consume our daily lives.  First, we need to focus on the most important things in life, like reading our Bible, spending time in prayer and talking to God.

Sometimes we just need to take a break from everything else that’s going on so we can keep our main focus on the Lord.

We need to take life one step at a time.  Trying to do everything at once just won’t work.  It’s important that we realize the time God has given us and use it wisely.  Yes, we want to be able to do so many amazing things, but that doesn’t mean we should have to cram it all in at the same time.

Have a great week, girls!

Verse of the Week 5/2/17

verse of week 5 2 17.jpg

Hi, lovelies!

Here is this week’s verse. 🙂

“A good name is more desirable than great riches; but to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.” ~ Proverbs 22:1.

Our reputations should matter more to us than wealth.  We need to be people of integrity.  For that there is no substitution.  Pursuing a good reputation along with doing what’s right, is much more important than great riches.  As Christians we shouldn’t look at people’s material wealth to decide their worth, it’s all about the heart.  A good name is going to bring God glory, and isn’t that what we’re here for?  To bring God glory?

I hope you liked this verse.  Have a great day, girls!
