God is known to move mountains. He can and will continue to do so in your life and the lives of those around you, you just have to seek him out and ask!

You may be thinking, “What exactly is a ‘mountain moving prayer?’”

Mark 11:23-24 says, “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Therefore, I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”

Mountain moving prayers are those of which that seem impossible, but can be made possible by God. They’re the prayers that’ll work wonders and truly make a difference when you believe in God’s power and his ability to do so.

Pray for the world.

The world could always use a little more prayer. If you don’t know where to start, see what the news has to say about the devastating events that are happening all across the globe. There is always somewhere that needs someone to pray for them, whether that be a country going through a natural disaster or a place that has yet to be introduced to Christ. Whatever the case may be, never stop praying for the people around the world and the places that need our prayers the most!

Pray for the future.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” – Romans 15:13

We may never know what the future holds, but it’s comforting to know that God does. When we pray for security over our future, God works wonders and reassures us that our paths are already laid out ahead of us! We just have to trust in him and find comfort in his word. God will take care of the rest!

Pray for guidance.

“But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.” – John 16:13

Praying for guidance allows for God to speak to us, and opens doors we never thought would be opened. It gives me a peace of mind knowing that I can hear God if I simply listen for him! When we ask God for guidance, he will surely give it to us, whether it be in the form of small whispers or a wise best friend!

Pray for discovery.

When we pray for discovery, God takes this opportunity to reveal things to us, whether we want him to or not. Maybe he’ll reveal certain convictions that you’ve pushed to the back of your mind time and time again. Or maybe he’ll have you discover things about him and his word that you never have before!

Pray for influence.

Lastly, pray for the influence you have on people. We are quick to underestimate ourselves, but people take notice when they can see the love of Christ shining through us! God uses our bodies as vessels to help him do his work here on earth. Never underestimate the influence you have! Pray for boldness and confidence in this area, and God will use you more than you know!

These are only some of the many things that you can, and should, pray for! Don’t be afraid to talk to God, and let him move mountains in your life and the lives around you! 🙂

Where God Guides, He Provides

Have you ever been thrown into a situation where you don’t think there’s a way out? Maybe you feel like God presented you with an opportunity, but you don’t even know what to do with it.

Throughout the years, God will fill your life with both good and bad situations and experiences. You may have thoughts of confusion, doubt, and maybe even fear, but God will never bring you to something that he won’t carry you through.

There are several passages in the Bible where it talks about how God equips us with the things we need. He doesn’t abandon us to figure it out on our own while we feel scared, anxious, and isolated. He wants us to know that despite our worry and doubt, he provides every single time. Look at what the Bible has to say about it!

Matthew 6:31-34 says, “So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

When have you felt most deserted by God? Was it through a terrible break up in high school? Or maybe when you didn’t get into your dream college you’ve been planning on attending for years?

We’re going to come to several roadblocks and setbacks all throughout our lives. Or at least that’s what we think they are. God doesn’t lead us into failure, for he always has a purpose in where and what he guides us into.

If God takes you through an awful break up, think of it as a new opportunity. Maybe God knows you need some time to yourself to figure out who you are before you give part of yourself to someone else. He will provide you with guidance and clarity during these times, all you have to do is be willing to listen!

Philippians 4:19 says, “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”  

If we truly believe the word of God, then we should never doubt the promises within it. This verse is not just a statement, but a promise. God will meet all your needs, not just in the good times of your life. God will never take us into a situation that he expects us to handle on our own.

Isn’t that cool to think about? Our heavenly father never abandons us or leaves us to deal with things alone. Where God guides, he always provides. Rest in this promise and remember to put your trust in Christ, today and every day.

God’s Relationship Red Flags

When it comes to relationships, God knows how to do them perfectly. He lays out different tips and advice in the Bible that assure us godly, happy relationships.

When we look deeper into the Bible, it tells us what we should and what we shouldn’t be looking for in a relationship. There are several so-called “red flags” that we can take from certain verses in the Bible. They can help us know if we’re in the relationship God wants us to be in!

Impatience

Ephesians 4:2 says, “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.”

Patience is something that every relationship needs to have in order to work. Whether that be showing patience toward the other person or having patience for the future, every relationship needs a firm foundation of patience. Patience is the glue that holds things together. In tense situations or waiting moments, without patience, there would be nothing to keep you sane.

Selfishness

1 John 3:16-18 says, “This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters… Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.”

In every relationship, whether it be boyfriend and girlfriend, husband and wife, or friend to friend, we should be making a conscious effort to put others before ourselves. When someone is only looking out for themselves all the time, they aren’t ready to commit themselves to someone else in a relationship. Relationships require sacrifice, even if it means giving up your own needs and wants in order to put the other person first.

Fear/Worry

1 John 4:18 says, “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.”

Having constant worry or anxiety in your relationship is one of the biggest red flags there could possibly be. This is God speaking to you and telling you that you maybe shouldn’t be dating the person that you are. The Bible says it itself: “There is no fear in love.” If you have a constant pit in your stomach or a reoccurring feeling of worry, take a step back and look at your relationship.

Jealousy

1 Corinthians 13:4-5 says, “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.”

As humans, jealousy is a feeling that we’ve all experienced from time to time. It becomes a red flag when it starts taking over your relationship. It’s a feeling no one likes to experience, and when you’re constantly getting jealous over even the little things, maybe that relationship isn’t the one for you.

If you’re seeing signs of these red flags within your relationship, maybe God is trying to tell you something. Sit and talk with him and ask him for guidance. He always wants the best for us, we just have to let him work in our lives!

I think peace is something we all could use a little more of.  Whether you’re in a stressful season in your life, going through a tough break-up, or even just feeling anxious, praying for peace can make a world of a difference.  When I sit down to pray, it’s sometimes hard to find the right words to say.  If you have this problem at times too, here are 5 ways to pray for peace!

  1. Pray for trust.Chelsea Crockett - Peace  Trust is something I think we all struggle with at times.  Praying for trust will take away any anxiety or stress you may be having because you’ll start to truly believe that God has a plan for each of us.
  2. Pray for strength.  Having the strength to get through any situation will help you through all seasons of your life.  If you have the strength to get through one low of your life, you can get through them all! 
  3. Pray to hear God’s voice.  God’s voice is real and present, and you will hear it if you listen.  Pray to hear what God is trying to tell you and you may find the direction that you’ve been searching for.
  4. Pray one day at a time.  Taking things one day at a time really does make a huge difference.  Start the day with a prayer to give you strength and trust for the day ahead!
  5. Pray for patience.  Patience is a virtue, and if you can learn to be still and patient, you will gain more peace than you could’ve imagined.

I hope this helps bring back some peace into your life.  God is good and He’ll listen to your prayers!

Love, Chels

5 Steps to Loving Yourself

We’re all at that crucial age of figuring out who we want to be, despite the pressure coming from friends, society, and many other factors that try to shape us into who they want us to be instead.  With all of the standards and expectations put on girls throughout social media, magazines, movies, etc., they make it hard to love the skin we’re in… But that’s exactly what we need to learn to do!  Here are 5 steps that will make you start loving yourself fully and wholeheartedly! Chelsea Crockett - Love Yourself Quote

  1. Avoid perfection.  Putting impossible standards on yourself will never make you happy!  You’ll be let down every time.  Don’t expect to be someone you can’t and shouldn’t be!
  2. Stay off of social media.  I don’t mean to delete all of your accounts and shut yourself out of them forever.  What I mean by this is to not log on just to compare yourself to every girl you see.  If you find yourself doing this, just log off and find something fun and positive to do.
  3. Look in the mirror and point out three things you love about yourself every day.  Positive reassurance is totally underrated.  It really works!  Give yourself three compliments each morning to continue finding things you love about yourself.
  4. Get the right mentality.  Having a negative attitude never helps in any situation.  Work on being happy and positive when it comes to your body.
  5. Acknowledge your achievements and treat yourself.  Sometimes we get down on ourselves for thinking that we’ve failed and just want to give up.  Acknowledge your success and focus on that!  Treat yourself so you feel rewarded and optimistic!

Hopefully you can soak in these tips and learn to appreciate yourself for who you are!

Love, Chelsea

5 Tips for When You’re Feeling Far from God

We all have bad days. Whether it’s something as little as a bad grade or something a lot bigger, you may start to feel far from God. Sometimes you lose faith or don’t have the time to grow and build your relationship with Christ. It can be frustrating and confusing but we’ve all been there. I came up with a few tips to turn your bad days to good days :).

  • Set apart some alone time to spend with God. Chelsea Crockett - God QuoteIf we never spend time with our friends and family, we will slowly grow apart from them. It’s the same thing with God! Never having some quiet time to listen for what God is trying to tell you will result in farness from God and His plan.
  • Pray, pray, pray. Prayer is powerful! Speaking to God one-on-one will strengthen your relationship with Him.
  • Text a friend from church, a youth leader, etc. If you have a church family that you can rely on, use that to your advantage! If you can’t talk and pray with someone in your family, seek advice from a fellow Christian.
  • Go to church. What’s a better place to get closer to God than being surrounded by good fellowship and the Word?
  • Listen to Christian music. I know when I’m feeling down, I love to listen to my favorite Christian artists. Their songs send very powerful messages that I sometimes need to hear!

I hope these tips help you draw nearer to God and help you remember how much he loves you.

Love, Chelsea
