Right now is a tense time for our country and our world. People are angry, hurt, confused, fed up, and 24f4701439373f95b9631f4a8a6d7bd5because of these emotions their attitudes can become tainted. I have witnessed how nasty people can become with their words and actions through the news and on social media, and I have a reminder for all of you out there: even if we disagree about everything, we can still be kind to each other.

Kindness is a courtesy we should all show each other. Being kind is so important during these times. Kindness can mean more to someone than you know. They may be having a terrible day, and your kind word or actions can change their whole outlook. Also, as a Christian, I find that my kindness acts as a witness of my faith. People notice when you are kind, and they ask how you can be that way even when it would be so much easier to be mean or rude. Jesus called us to be kind and be a witness to the world of His love.

Be kind, even on your bad days. You never know who may be watching you and may be impacted by your actions.

There are times in life where our troubles and problems feel too large to face. They feel like giants that are too big to conquer. Lucky for us, 1 John 4:4 says that “the Lord is greater than the giants you face.”1-johnNo problem is too big for God! It is easy to feel overwhelmed with everything happening in life and the “giants” we are facing. Your “giants” don’t have to be abnormally large people that tower over you like your typical biblical or fairy tale giant. They can be any large life event, problem, issue, or fear that is facing you in your life. A giant that I faced recently was moving away from home and going to college. The Lord was with me, and he was greater that that giant. He saw me through the situation and guided me back to where He wanted me to be. God is greater than your problems! He is bigger than your giants!

If you follow me on social media then you know I am gearing up to head to Atlanta Georgia on January 2nd to the Passion Conference. I am so excited to go and worship and learn more about God with my friends! Some of you may not know what Passion is, so I thought I would fill you in.fullsizerender-69

The Passion Conference exists to glorify God by uniting students in worship, prayer and justice for spiritual awakening in this generation. The movement started in 1995 and has had one mission since then: to call students from campuses across the nation and around the world to live for what matters most. What matters most is Jesus. Millions of students and people from 18-25 have had their lives transformed through the power of the Holy Spirit at Passion, and because of their Faith their voice is getting louder as they rise and bring hope and light to the world. Passion is more than music and events; it is a generation living for Jesus.

Want to join the movement? Come to Passion! If you can’t make it, research the conference and find out other ways you can get involved.

Life Lessons From Lamentations 3:23

We all have bad days. We have days where we don’t feel like ourselves, where we are mad or angry or sad and maybe take it out on the people we love. There are also times where we do things we know we shouldn’t be doing, and then end up feeling guilty or disappointed in ourselves. Lucky for us, God lets us push the “reset” button every day.lamentations

Lamentations 3:23 says “His mercies are new every morning.” This means that God doesn’t hold your mistakes against you, he gives you a chance to start fresh every day if you ask Him for forgiveness. God doesn’t want you to live in guilt or sadness because of how you acted or what you did in the past. He wants you to treat each day like it is a brand new gift and a fresh start. He shows you mercy by wiping your slate clean every day. We don’t deserve this, but we serve a gracious and mighty God. Because of His son Jesus dying on the cross for us, we are able to repent of our sins and are forgiven and made new.

I am so happy that I serve a God who gives me countless chances to do the right thing and start over!

Colosians 3:12 tells us “Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.” You can wear the cutest clothes and be the best dressed gal in town, but if your personality isn’t clothed in the qualities that we talked about above, you aren’t stylish in the sight of God.

Wearing stylish and cute clothes makes us feel pretty and confident. Wearing a compassionate, kind, humble, gentle and patient personality should do the same. If you look great but have a bad attitude, people will not be as quick to be your friend. I know that I strive to clothe myself in the virtues colossiansmentioned in Colissians 3:12 because they make me feel beautiful. They make people want to be around me, and they make me a good friend and role model. They will do the same for you if you choose to wear them!

Instead of worrying so much about our outward appearance, we should start paying more attention to what is on the inside.

Turn Your Worries Into Faith

The other day I saw a really inspiring quote. It said “There isn’t enough room in your mind for both worry and Faith. You must decide which one will live there.”

I love this quote because it tells it to you straight: if you are worried, you need to trust in God and give your worries to Him, because that is how you show your faith. Your mind doesn’t have the energy to hold on to worry but to also trust God with your problems. They contradict each other! You must decide turn-your-worries-into-faithwhich you value more. You must decide which you want to hold on to. For me, I had to decide whether I was going to worry about my life and my future, or whether I was going to put my faith and trust in my Savoir. Ever since I made that decision, I have felt so much peace about my situation. I know that God is in control, and that I need to continue to turn my worries into faith.

Just a little faith talk to inspire you today.

Where are my girls who are hurting? Broken-hearted? Feeling sad or alone? I hear you. And I know what it is like. I have a verse that I think will really speak to you, and that is Psalm 147:3, which says “He heals every shattered heart.”

It may not make you feel encouraged now, but just having the knowledge that your heart will not be in d393b5d339057f4bb13592aa6221d887pain forever, even though it may feel like it will, is comforting. God tells us in His word that He will heal our shattered hearts. In time, your heart will feel whole again. No pain is too great for God’s incredible healing. When you are heartbroken, it can feel like you are in a pit. Like you cannot get out and cannot see a light at the end of the tunnel. Don’t give up hope. Don’t lose faith. Your Heavenly Father will sew your heart back together and lift you out of your pit.

Sometimes, doing good is exhausting. Sometimes it can feel like you are the only one who really cares, and the only one who is trying to make a difference and do some good. You can feel alone and tired of being different. I know the feeling. Sometimes, the thought crosses my mind that it would be so much easier to be like the world wants me to be. It would be so much easier to go with the flow and conform to society’s standards. But then I remember Galatians 6:9 which says “Let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap if we do not give up.”galations

This verse pretty much says “Don’t give up!”, don’t let the world get you down and tell you that the good you are doing is not making a difference, and that you are incapable of changing the world. It can feel so lonely when other people don’t accept the way you live or how you act. But the Bible says to not grow weary. Don’t let the world exhaust you and make you think that you aren’t making a difference. Every good deed you do, every nice word you say, and every selfless action just shows people God’s love through you. God says that it will all be worth it if we do not give up! We will make a difference, and we will change people’s lives for the better.

Whenever you feel like you are just one person, and that your “doing good” is not making a difference, know that it truly is. Do not grow weary, don’t give up, because it is so worth it.

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 sometimes 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 improve your prayer life.

  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 allows you to look back at your prayers and see how God worked through them!fullsizerender-59
  2. Doodle your prayers: Yes, doodle! Grab a sketch book or a piece of paper and doodle while you prayer. Draw your prayers or doodle as you pray. It can help calm you and help you surrender your worries to God. It will also be a fun way to incentivize yourself to pray.
  3. Pray through scripture: The Bible is full of prayers. You can take them and adopt them to your life and your prayers, 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! God loves hearing your prayers.
