“And I will call her who was unloved ‘my beloved.” Have you ever felt unloved? Unworthy? Undesired? Then Romans 9:25 is meant for you.

Even when we feel rejected by those around us, Jesus calls us His beloved. He adores us because we are His children. He created us in His image! In our darkest moments where we feel like there is no one who understands us, cares for us, values us or truly loves us, we can remember that Jesus calls us beloved. No one on this planet will ever love us the way He does. He gave up His life for us. That is the most selfless act of love anyone can do. Jesus will always love us, no matter how much we sin and disappoint Him.

You are beloved. You are loved. You are worthy. The Bible tells us so.

Psalm 93:4 says “Mightier than the waves of the sea is His love for you.”

What an incredible visual. When you gaze at waves on the ocean, you can see just how powerful waves are as they rumble to the shore. That’s why this verse is so meaningful to me. It says that God’s love for us is mightier than the waves on the sea. No one on this earth will love you like that. If you are feeling lonely, sad, misunderstood, or unloved, I think this is a great verse to study. Next time you are at the ocean, take a minute to admire the strength of the waves and remember that God’s love for you is even mightier.

Recently in my quiet time with God I ran across a verse that really touched my heart. The verse is Proverbs 16:9 and it says “People can plan what they want to do, but it is the Lord who guides their steps.” Let me tell you why this verse struck a cord with me.

I like to plan things out. I know i’m not the only one out there who likes to have a plan before going into anything, and likes to know what she has to do next. I like planning life out! It makes me feel in control. You know what the problem with that is? It is that I am not the one that is in control, GOD is. No matter how many life plans I make, or how hard I try to plan for the future and plan my future out, God is the one who has the ultimate say in how my life goes. I can plan all I want! I can take a piece of paper and write down what I want my life to look like in 5 years and make all the plans my heart desires. But it is God who determines your steps, and where life takes you. Pray to Him about your desires for your life. If they are His desires for you, too, He will see them through! He will guide your steps and will take your life down the path that He desires. That is such a comfort to me, because it lets me know that I do not need to worry about how my life will go, I just need to trust in God and seek Him and he will lead me where He wants me.

I pray that you trust God with your future as well. He can do such amazing things in your life if you invite Him in!

My Past Was Made Clean By My King

Does the thought ever cross your mind that you have made so many mistakes and have sinned so much that you don’t feel like you deserve God’s love? We should never feel like that. It doesn’t matter what we say, what we do, what mistakes we make, God still loves us unconditionally.kid

My past was made clean by my King. Any mistake or sin that I made in the past has been washed away. If you ask God to forgive you, He does and doesn’t look back. It doesn’t matter how long or how often you have sinned, because we ALL sin and fall short of what God expects of us. But no matter how many times we fall down, He picks us back up and says that our past has been forgiven. We can move forward knowing that our sin and shame is behind us and we have a clean slate.

In our lives, we will all have times when we feel like we need a fresh start. God makes your past clean and gives you a renewed sence of purpose and a bright future. If you ever feel like you don’t deserve His love or forgiveness, just remember that He created you and loves you unconditionally. Your past can be made clean by your King.

Esther 4:14 says that “Perhaps you were born for such a time as this.” What does that verse mean to you? To me it means that God has put you on this earth at this time and has placed you where you are and with the people you are with for a reason.esthter

Maybe God has you where you are in life so that you can be an influence on the people that you work with and go to school with. Maybe He brought on a major life-change that you weren’t expecting or wanting because He wanted you to be somewhere else to influence someone else. Maybe He has you where you are so that you can be more involved in ministries or Bible studies to strengthen your Faith. He may be opening and closing doors in your life because He is leading you to bigger and better things. If we are patient and are open to His calling, we can realize the plans He has for us and for the people we will influence. This verse in Esther is talking about when a woman in the Bible named Esther was told that “you were born for such a time as this” and in your life, you can make a difference where God has placed you.

You may not see the opportunity now, but if you stay willing and open to His calling, you will find so much fulfillment in His plans!

Maybe you were born for such a time as this. This moment in time. This stage of life.

Life Lessons From 2 Timothy 4:17

2 Timothy 4:17 says “But the Lord stood by be and strengthened me.” Have you ever felt like no one had your back and you were alone? This verse tells us that we never have to feel like that, because God has our back, always.

In situations where I feel like my faith is being attacked or I am being personally attacked, I always try to remember that the Lord is standing by me and strengthening me. Being on YouTube, I can read the comments on my videos, and sometimes they are not the timothysweetest words. Don’t get me wrong, there are way more sweet, nice comments and supporters than there are negative Nancy’s. But, sometimes those negative comments can overshadow all of the good. That is when I remember that the Lord with with me and is strengthening me. When you feel like you are alone in a situation, when you feel attacked or belittled, or you just feel weak and helpless, just remember that the Lord is always by your side, strengthening you.

You are never alone, and you never have to feel weak or helpless! God has your back, always.

Life Lessons from Proverbs 3:3

It is so easy to get caught up in the troubles of this world. It is easy to become angry, irritable, sarcastic, and all kinds of other negative emotions. Yet, Proverbs 3:3 says “ Do not let kindness and truth leave you.”

When I read this verse I immediately think “How am I treating people around me? Am I treating them with kindness? Am I speaking the truth?” As a Christian, it is really important for me to embody everything this verse says. Why? A couple of reasons. The first is proverbsife because God’s word tells me to. It tells me to be kind and to tell the truth, because those are two things that God wants His followers to represent. The second reason it is important for me to do what this verse says is because I am a Christian, therefore people look to me and watch how I act. They look to me to see how I live and what I stand for. I set an example for others, and my actions can either bring honor and glory to God, or they can dishonor and shame Him. My goal is to bring glory to God in everything I do, which means being kind to others, even when it is not easy, and to speak truth.

Don’t let kindness and truth escape you, because not only do these two attributes make you a more likeable, nice person, they also bring glory to God.

Start, Stay, and End with Jesus

“That is SO goals” ,“Omg GOALS!”, “They are total relationship goals.” How many times a day to we hear people say these phrases? To me, these words seem trivial. Is your goal to really have a relationship like that person? They may wish they had a relationship like yours. Instead of setting minute goals such as the ones the world tells us are worth our time and effort, I say we focus on one daily goal: to start, stay, and end with Jesus.

  1. Start with Jesus: Morning time alone with God is crutial to maintaining a healthy relationship with Him. If it means setting your alarm 10 minutes earlier so you can read your Bible or a short devotional when you get up in the morning, then do it. You will feel so much better, more prepared, and encouraged going into the day after spending time with God!d8e146298932786e62eabfa869fc76f5
  2. Stay with Jesus: During the day, send up little prayers to God when He crosses your mind. Are you worried about something? Pray about it. Stressed? Pray about it. Also, throughout your day, make sure you are acting and presenting yourself to others in a way that glorifies God and brings attention to Him by setting a positive example for your peers.
  3. End with Jesus: If this means a prayer right before you go to bed or sitting around the table with family at the end of the day and praying as a family, make sure you close out the day by spending time with the One who gave the day to you in the first place. Confess your sins to him and ask forgiveness, then pray that He would work through you in the days to come.

Start, stay, and end with Jesus every day. Your life will never be the same!
