Are you facing heartbreak? Having a broken heart is one of the hardest life obstacles to overcome. During these times when we feel the lowest is when God can show Himself to us the most. His word gives us the encouragement we need to press on.

Moving past the disappointment and burden of a broken heart is a big task. It can hinder us from being who God has called us to be. What if your brokenness could be wiped away? God knows what you are feeling and going through because He has seen it before. This isn’t his first rodeo! He even made time to write down His advice for you so that when you are feeling down or He feels far away and out of reach, you can always find reassurance. If you are experiencing brokenness, these verses are for you.

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you. When you pass through the rivers, they will not flow over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned. The fire will not destroy you.” Isaiah 43:2

“The Lord is near to those who are discouraged; he saves those who have lost all hope.” Psalm 34:18

“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.” Hebrews 12:2-3

“Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.” Matthew 5:5

“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our sins; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5

“Do not fear, for I am with you. Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will give you strength, and for sure I will help you. Yes, I will hold you up with My right hand that is right and good.” Isaiah 41:10

“God is our safe place and our strength. He is always our help when we are in trouble. So we will not be afraid, even if the earth is shaken and the mountains fall into the center of the sea, and even if its waters go wild with storm and the mountains shake with its actions.” Psalms 46:1-3

“He is the one who heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” Psalm 147:3

In each of these verses, the Lord promises to be our strength and our comforter. We just have to let Him!

The W.O.R.D

I was browsing Pinterest the other day when I came across an awesome new way to study the Bible from TheFelcitybee.com called the “W.O.R.D” method. I am always searching for new and fresh ways to dive into the Word. So, why not use the “W.O.R.D”?

  1. W: Write. While doing your daily Bible reading or studying, write down your daily verse or main point in a journal. Reading over the passage once you write it down will help you commit it to memory. Proverbs 3:1-3 says “…But let your heart keep my commands; for length of days and long life and peace they will add to you. Let not mercy and truth forsake you; Bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.”
  2. O: Observe. Observe the keys to the passage you are reading and studying. This will help you understand what you are reading. One way to do this is to ask yourself the “five W’s” which are: Who (who is the author of the passage, who are they writing about, and who are they writing to), What (what type of story is this), When (when was the book written), Where (Where was the book written), and Why (why did the author write the book).
  3. R: Relevant. Ask yourself how this verse is relevant and applicable to your life today. How can you make this passage personal? How can you apply it to your daily life? Does this passage instruct, encourage, or correct? What changes in your life does this verse encourage you to make?
  4. D: Declare. Pray and declare the scripture over your life. In this last step, you pray the scripture that you have been studying over your life. Declare the changes you are going to make as a result of the verses you study. Pray that you are encouraged and learn as you strengthen your walk with the Lord.

As you go through the W.O.R.D method, keep your heart and your eyes open to what the Lord is trying to tell you. I am always a big fan of study methods like this one because they keep you focused and give you specific tasks. It is like a road map for studying the Bible!

He’s in the Waiting

“And so it was that he, having waited long and endured patiently, realized and obtained what God had promised.” Hebrews 6:15

Abraham and his wife Sarah waited a good long time for their prayers for a child to be answered. I think we could all take a lesson in patience from those two.

Waiting for important emails, waiting for packages, waiting for the perfect job, perfect house, perfect partner, waiting for answers. The phrase “patiently waiting” seems like an impossible task. Life is full of waiting, so we might as well learn to wait well. Waiting allows us to look forward to the good things that are in store, and it is preparing you for what is to come. I think all of us could learn a few things about how to wait.

  1. Be practical: Use your waiting wisely! Keep your mind busy and it will make the time fly by. I know how it feels to feel paralyzed by nerves, worried and waiting to hear back about something life-changing. Don’t let your waiting make you distracted – let it motivate you to get things done! Keep your brain distracted and your hands busy. Volunteer in the community. Clean out your car and closet. Go to lunch with a friend you haven’t seen in a while.
  2. Be spiritual: Spiritually invest in both yourself and in others during this time. Trust that the Lord knows the perfect time table and you do not. Use these times of waiting to dive deeper into His word. Journal, pray, read, and use your time alone with Him to find meaning in the waiting. His timing is perfect.
  3. Be invested: Live in the moment. Enjoy the season of life that you are in. Are you at a job you don’t like and waiting to see if you were picked for the new job you applied for? Invest yourself in your current job. Do your very best and enjoy the little things that you will miss when you leave. Don’t miss the joys of life that are happening right in front of you, and don’t forget to enjoy today by worrying about tomorrow.
  4. Be advised: Find someone who has been in your shoes. They can help walk you through the waiting. Find ways to grow and be mentored and advised in whatever is to come. Having someone who has been there and who can relate can be such a relief. They can show you that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Enjoy every step and every stage of the waiting. God is using this time to equip you for what is to come and is writing your story. Find Him in the waiting.

Prayer Road Map

Have you ever gotten stuck in a “prayer rut”? Do you feel like you don’t have the words to say when you pray, and your prayers fell empty? Many of us have felt like that at some point in our walk with Christ. We could all use a few tips on how to have more effective prayer lives, and God will show you if you just ask. He doesn’t need fancy words or long monologues, He just asks that we come to him with our hearts ready. He is always listening.

Luke 11 tells a story of one of Jesus’ disciples who came and asked for Jesus to teach them how to pray. Jesus gave them an example and gave us guidelines for what we should be both asking and thanking Him for. Even the disciples had trouble knowing how to pray sometimes! “Jesus said, ‘This is how you should pray: ‘Father, may your name be kept holy. May your kingdom come soon. Give us each day the food we need, and forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us. And don’t let us yield to temptation.’” (Luke 11:2-4).

So, let’s break that down into a prayer road map to follow:

  1. May your name be kept holy: We should give the Lord the honor and glory that He deserves. We should begin our prayers by praising him!
  2. May His kingdom come: Asking the Lord to return soon reveals the eagerness in our hearts to be with Him in heaven someday.
  3. Give us the food we need each day: We ask him for the things we need to get through each day because we know that He is our provider.
  4. And forgive our sins: By admitting we fall short and need God’s grace, we humble ourselves and show we know that we need him.
  5. Forgive those who sin against us: We should be merciful towards those who do us wrong.
  6. Do not lead us into temptation: Pray that he will keep you strong and guard your heart from giving into temptation.

Our prayers should be like a continual conversation between you and the Lord – because talking to Him every once in a while is not enough! There is nothing too big or too small for Him to handle. Sometimes the answers to our prayers will be a yes, sometimes a no, and sometimes a “maybe.” But, you will always get an answer. He hears and he cares. Never stop talking to your Father in Heaven.

When you pray, do you believe that God will answer you? When you lift a problem, person or situation up to God, do you believe that He hears you? Do you believe that He can grant your request?

As Christians, we need to believe in what we pray for. The Bible tells us that we are not just to pray, but to pray believing. If God’s word specifically tells us to believe when we pray, then it goes without saying that sometimes we can pray and not believe. Not all prayers will bring results. God hears us when we believe that He has the power to answer us. And God will always answer us with one of three responses: yes, no, and wait.

James 1:6-7 says “But let him as in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavers is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive anything of the Lord.” Every religion in the world asks its followers to pray. But, it is only the Bible that requires us to believe what we pray. It requires that we actually trust God. That is how we maintain our relationship with Him. Mark 11:24 says “Therefore, I say unto you, whatever you desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them.”

Believing in your prayer takes the emphasis off the prayer itself and puts it all on God. The focus is all about God and His faithfulness. In the Bible we are taught to not only rely on prayer alone but to rely on Him. Your faith and belief must be in your heart before the prayer comes out of your mouth.

When crisis strikes, bad things happen, or we want something, our first instinct should be to lift it up in prayer. For some of us, our answers come quickly, and God either tells us yes, no, or wait. Other times, the answer is unclear, so we wait. And wait. And wait. And during this waiting, we begin to lose faith. Did God hear me? Has he forgotten about me?

He does hear you and will never forget or forsake you. He may be teaching you a lesson on patience or may even be reminding you that you must believe in what you are praying. Maybe He wants you to set your worldly desires aside and be humbled. In these situations, I remember Romans 8:28 which says, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

Everything happens for a reason. It is our job to believe that God will deliver us from our situation and bring us out stronger on the other side.

How to Start Reading the Bible

Sometimes I find myself staring at my Bible, knowing I want to study God’s word and be challenged by it, but not sure where to start. A few years ago, I figured I would start at the beginning and read Genesis. After a short time I lost interest with that approach. Typically I will find a good study and use that to guide my reading, but sometimes you just want to pick up the Bible and let it speak to you. The problem is, where do you start?

The Bible is so big that it can be overwhelming. Some Bible reading plans lose me because they assign so many chapters a day that it looks like too daunting of a task. Why isn’t reading the Bible easy all the time? Shouldn’t it be?

No. Reading the Bible does not require you to feel comfortable and know where to start. Yes, there are times when God guides you to the passage that you need to hear at a time in your life, but some/most of the time, reading the Bible is all about being open to hearing God’s truth. We can’t expect our Bibles to fall open to the right passage. But, we can start small. Dip your toes in, and then you will be able to full-on swan dive into the deep end. Do some research on the people in the Bible. See if there are stories that have lessons that you are interested in pursuing.

I did this and learned a ton about Esther and her obedience and diligence to God’s call for her life. She became a huge inspiration to me. Another story that I pursued was the story of the wandering Israelites. It reminded me of how much we need God. While dipping your toes into the Word, you may just fall deeply in love with it. If this is what you are searching for, then keep reading! Here are a few tips on how to start reading the Bible so it doesn’t collect dust on your shelf and instead becomes the source of your wisdom.

  1. Start with a short book of the Bible. Some of the best books are the shorter ones. Those small doses can pack in a lot of wisdom.
  2. Seek understanding each time you read. The Gospel is so full of beautiful life lessons that we need to really pay attention in order to comprehend them all. Try and gain a deeper understanding of God’s love and grace when you read. Whether you read one verse, one chapter, or a whole book, find the wisdom in it. It is truly life-changing.
  3. Don’t compare your walk with others. Your walk with Christ is completely different than your friend’s! Don’t let the comparison trap distract you from what God is trying to teach YOU. Give yourself the time and patience to figure out what reading the Bible looks like for you, because it may look completely different from what others are doing.

There are also tons of online resources that help you learn to study God’s word. I know that my love for the Bible has grown tremendously ever since I began spending time in it. I learn something new each time I go to read.

Remember, it is okay to feel overwhelmed with studying the Bible. All you have to do is dip your toes in. Eventually, you will be able to dive in and uncover God’s truths and promises for your life! They’re waiting for you.

As most of you know, this last year has been a year of change for me. I started back to college after taking a year break, and I am getting ready move to Georgia. There has also been a ton going on in the midst of all of those changes, so needless to say it has been a nuts year. I saw a quote the other day that spoke right to my situation, and it said “The only way God can show us He’s in control is to put us in situations we can’t control.”

How true is that? In my life, it is painfully true. God doesn’t call us to a comfortable life of contentment, he calls us to do things that take us out of our comfort zone. If you are in a situation where you feel like your life is out of control and it isn’t going the way you planned, just remember that the only way God can show us He is in control is to put us in situations we can’t control. He will pull you out of the situation and will show you that he’s got the whole thing covered.

As a Christian, I strive to have God as the center of all my relationships, including my romantic ones. God’s word gives us great guidelines for growth and a great foundation for relationships and it outlines the core principals of godliniess, purity, and unconditional love. If you are a believer and are dating another believer, these 4 verses are great to study in order to strengthen your relationship.

  1. Respect each other: Proverbs 22:1 says “A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.” This means that respecting each other’s boundaries, personalities, and thoughts gives couples the ability to humble themselves individually. This gives the relationship the opportunity to mature and for each person to give respect by demonstrating integrity, moral character, and devotion to God.
  2. Encourage each other to grow spiritually: 2 Thessalonians 1:3 tells us to encourage our brothers and sisters to seek Christ and to grow spiritually. This shows maturity in relationships and strengthens them. A couple who prays together, goes to Bible study or church together, or fellowships with other believers is helping eachother flourish.
  3. Serve with each other: Hebrews 10: 24 says “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds,” serving together in the community or in church is a great way to use your spiritual gifts to further God’s kingdom, AND to grow your relationship!
  4. Pray for each other and for others: Ephesians 6:18 encourages us to pray for each other and for others, because when we do, we will experience a greater closeness to God and each other.

The Bible encourages us to be in relationships where we are equally yoked, which means of the same faith. Being in a relationship with someone who holds the same beliefs as you really sets you up for success, and gives you a sense of confidence that you are both on the same page when it comes to issues of purity and what you believe.

“Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” Colossians 3:2 drops a big reality bomb on us. Earthly things take up most of our

time, whether it be our jobs, our entertainment, our friends, or or fun. It can be hard to set our minds on Jesus and His calling for our lives when we are so distracted with what this world has to offer.
That is why God gave us verses like this one, to remind us of where our thoughts and goals should be focused. Setting our sights on what God has planned for our lives can be a big leap of faith. It isn’t always the easiest road. We are so tempted to pursue our earthly wants and desires, when what God has in store for us is even greater than what this earth can offer us. We just have to listen to Him and seek His wisdom. This takes patience! Our timing is not always God’s timing.

When we set our sights on what God has planned for us instead of what this world says we should seek, we will live lives full of fulfillment and joy.

Prayer is a powerful thing. Sometimes, it can be a tough thing to do. Our prayer lives reveal so much about our relationship with God, but there are times when we can put it on the back burner and it can get lost in the craziness of life. We get lazy, busy, or too distracted. Even if you are not much of a prayer, it is so important to maintain a strong prayer life. If yours is in need of a jumpstart, here are a few tips on how to make it happen.

  1. Write your prayers down: Use a journal to write your prayers down. Not only does this help you focus and allows you to vent and get your feelings out, it also lets you to look back at your prayers and see how God worked through them!
  2. Doodle your prayers: Yes, doodle! Grab a sketch book or a piece of paper and doodle while you pray. It can help calm your heart and help you surrender your worries to God. It will also be a fun way to incentivise yourself to pray.
  3. Pray through scripture: The Bible is full of prayers. You can take them and adapt them to your life, and you can use them as inspiration. The Bible is an awesome resource!
  4. Read about it: There are countless books written about prayer. You can also ask close friends or mentors about how they maintain a strong prayer life. Never be ashamed to ask others about their faith! They have most likely had the same struggles in their walk with God that you are having and can give you advice on how to overcome them.

Having a strong prayer life is essential. It is how we talk to God, and how he talks back!

Proverbs 16:24 says “Gracious words are like honey. Sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.”

What does it mean to be gracious? To me, I think that it means being a forgiving person. It means that you treat others how they should be treated, not how you necessarily want to treat them. It means believing the best in people, and being kind. Using gracious words means being gentile and kind with how you speak to people. It means building others up and taking the high road. God’s word tells us that when we use gracious words, they are actually good for us. They are mentally and spiritually healthy. You are more joyful and happy when you show others grace instead of holding on to grudges and hard feelings.

Next time you are in a difficult situation, remember to be gracious in the way you handle it, because it is better for you and for those around you in the end.

“Whoever seeks good finds favor, but evil comes to one who searches for it.” That’s what Proverbs 11:27 tells us. In a nutshell, it means that anyone can find the dirt in someone, but we should strive to be the ones who find the gold.

It can be easy to focus on the negative in people and point out their flaws to make ourselves feel like we are better than them. That’s something anyone can do. Anyone can focus on the negative in someone. It takes a humble mind to think of the good in others most of the time. It is so much healthier for our minds and our hearts to be positive. Our outlook on life depends on it! Also, when we start talking positive about people behind their backs instead of negative, people start to notice. Be an example for others and make them wonder why you are different. Let Jesus shine through you.

Be the one who finds the gold.

1 Peter says “Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.” Translation? True beauty begins on the inside.

Your beauty comes from the way you treat others. It comes from your words and actions. It comes from the gentleness of your spirit and thetu kindness of your heart. This beauty shines through and makes an impression on people! We all know someone who is absolutely gorgeous on the outside but has a less-than-pretty personality. Their heart tarnishes their good looks. Your inner beauty is what God values, and I guarantee you that the people around you value it as well. We need to remember to spend time making our hearts beautiful. Be an example for others on how to treat one another and how to show love. I try and read my bible and read books for advice on how to make my inner beauty shine. I think it is so important for us to always be striving to be better people and better Christians.

Remember, true beauty begins on the inside.

What is Bible journaling? Lately I have seen adorable photos on Instagram and Pinterest of artwork in the margins of a Bible. Now, I’m no Picasso, but I do enjoy coloring and drawing as much as the next girl. Bible journaling is using drawings or notes in the margins of your Bible to journal how you feel about the verses, how they are relevant to your life, or prayers regarding the passage. Most people underline or star things in their Bibles, but journaling is taking it one step further!

Do you need a new Bible to begin journaling? Absolutely not! All you need is your own Bible, a pen, and some colors. Also, don’t sweat it if you are not-so-artistically inclined. Your Bible journaling is your own personal art. If you are more of a writer, write in the margins. If you are a note taker, take notes! If you are a doodler, doodle your heart out! Use Bible journaling to write prayers in the margins and date them to come back and write when they were answered, write what God is speaking to you as you read the passage, write sermon notes, or even just thoughts on what you think the scripture is saying in your own words.

Bible journaling is a great way to enhance your quiet time with God. When you are inspired to remember a verse or point, draw or write next to the verse. It is so fun to look back through your Bible and see how you were feeling when you read something or how it spoke to you in that moment. It is also so cool to see how God answers prayers when reading the requests you dated in the margins!

I challenge you to become a Bible journal-er. I’m going to do my best to become one, too!

Prayer is a powerful thing. Having a solid prayer life is essential in strengthening your faith, and it can get you through the toughest of times. I must confess, when life gets hard I have no problem praying for what I want and need, but when my friends are going through tough times I’m not as good about it! The best thing you can do for your friends is pray for them. Here are 4 prayers for your friends and mine.

  1. Jeremiah 17:7-8:Ask that the Lord would bless your friend as she trusts in the Lord. Pray that she would be like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots strong and deep by the stream, and has no need to fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit. Pray that God would make your friend strong, fruitful, and flourishing for His glory.FullSizeRender (84)
  2. Numbers 6:24-26: Pray that the Lord bless your friend and keep her; that He would make his face to shine upon her and be gracious to her; that the Lord would lift up His countenance upon her and give her peace.
  3. Proverbs 3:3-8: Pray that she would trust in the lord with all her heart and not lean on her own understanding. Ask that in all her ways she would acknowledge God, and God will make straight your friend’s path. Entreat the Lord to help your friend not be wise in her own eyes, but to fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.
  4. Psalm 138:7-8: Ask that when your friend walks in the midst of trouble, God would preserve her life. Claim His promise to stretch out His hand against the wrath of your friend’s enemies, to deliver her with His right hand. Remind God of His commitment to fulfill His purpose for your friend, and of His steadfast and endless love for her.

I hope my friends pray these prayers over me from time to time as well. What an encouragement to know that someone cares about you enough to lift you up in prayer!
