Micah 7:8 says “Though I fall, I will rise again.”

This verse is a great reminder to keep going even when you fall, because you will rise up again. Life is this
way. There are peaks, and there are valleys. What comes up must come down. We have great times in life that are followed by not-so-great times. The silver lining during those “down” times is that we know that they will eventually turn around. Even though there are days when we think “this day could not possibly get any worse” and then it does, we can find peace in the promise that though we fall, we will rise again.

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!

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.

Daniel 3:18 says “And if not, He is still good.” This verse may sound like adanieln incomplete sentence or may make no sense to you, but recently this verse has meant a lot to me. Here is what it means.

The “And if not” part of the verse is talking about the things in life that we want to happen. It is the things we dream about or strive for. It is saying that if those things don’t happen for us, if certain dreams don’t come true or if certain doors close, God has it all under control. He is still good. I read something recently that really hit me. It said that God literally cannot sin, so

anything bad happening in our lives is caused by Satan, not God. God can do no wrong. If God closes a door or changes your path so you do not have an opportunity that you thought you would get, or if life isn’t going the way you planned, He is still good. He will still carry you. He is taking your path in a new and better direction. It may not seem like it right now, in fact it may seem like He has turned His back on you, but that is never the case. He is still good. In fact, he may have closed those doors because He knows that by closing them, He is opening the door to an even bigger and better opportunity for you.

Be patient, hold strong in knowing that the God who created the whole entire universe cares about you and knows all of your hopes and fears, and look forward to the bright future He has in store for you.

Why I Have A Daily Time Alone with God

Every day I have a quiet time with God. It is my time with God to show Him that He is first in my life. If you follow me on Snapchat or Instagram, you have probably seen me post photos of what I am studying or learning about. I love diving into God’s word and seeing what He will teach me. Here are 3 reasons I make my daily time with God a priority.

  1. God is my refuge: When life gets crazy, scary, overwhelming, or is just getting the best of you, we should run to God. I find safety and rest in God. Knowing that I have that safe place with Him comes from studying His word. I do a daily time with God even when life is great, because I am preparing for the times when life is not-so-great.FullSizeRender (29)
  2. It is a way to worship Him: Time is precious, and we don’t have much of it. We are a go go go society, and we fill our days to the brim. Since time is limited, what we spend our time on shows what we value. When we give God part of our day and spend time with Him, we show Him that we value Him. We show Him he is worthy of our time.
  3. It is exercise: Soul exercise, that is. We exercise our bodies to keep us healthy and strong, so why not exercise our soul to do the same? Devotions force our attention off of ourselves and our selfish distractions and desires and put our pursuit onto God and His purpose and promises for us. When we stop working out, our bodies get out of shape, and when we stop spending time with God every day, our Faith does the same.

I encourage everyone to dive into God’s word and spend time with Him every day. It is amazing what a difference it can make in your life.

Isaiah 58:22 says “Where God guides, He provides.” This verse, to me, is comforting because of the huge change about toisaiah happen in a lot of our lives. If you are going away to college, moving out, or moving away, then I think this verse is for you.

Where God guides, He provides. Wherever he takes your path, and wherever he sends you, He will provide. If it is halfway across the country or just a few minutes away, wherever you go He will not let you down. It can be scary moving out and moving away from the familiar, from your family and friends, and it can be nerve wracking being in a new place without these people. But, God will provide you new friends that feel like family, and he will provide you with the strength you need to feel at home and successful. He wouldn’t guide you to a new place if He didn’t know you would flourish. He always wants what is best for you because He is your father! Whatever you need, He will provide it for you, all you have to do is pray to Him and ask for it. It might not come right away, but God always has a plan and His timing is perfect.

Be comforted in knowing that wherever you go, God will provide!

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 Colossians 3:23

Colossians 3:23 says “Whatever you do, do it with all of your heart as doing it for the Lord, not for man.” What does this verse tell you? How can you apply it to your everyday life? I have a few ideas. Let’s break the verse down.

“Whatever you do, do it with all of your heart…” This line tells mecollossians to not just do something for the sake of doing it, or not just doing something to get it done and check it off of a list. It tells me that whatever I do, I need to do my best at it and give it my best effort. I need to put my heart into it. “…as doing it for the Lord, not for man.” To me, this says that your aim should be to please God, not man (or woman). You should do things because God wants you to, not because people want you to. You need to treat every situation with great care and do it to your best ability as if you were doing it for the Lord, not for another person. When you start to do this, people will notice there is something different about you and the way you treat others and act. What a great way to witness to others! Your actions speak so loudly about what is in your heart.

What does this verse say to you? Do you feel it says something else? Comment below and share your thoughts!

In my quiet time with God I recently ran across a verse that really spoke to me. 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 proverbsanything, 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!

When you are dating someone, it is important for Christ to be the center of that relationship. It doesn’t matter if you are in middle school, high school, college or beyond, having a Christ-centered relationship is super important. Here are a few verses to pray to strengthen your relationship, protect it, and to give you hope for the future.

1 Corinthians 12: 4-7 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. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. 1-Corinthians-13-4-8

Ephesians 4:2 Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, baring with one another in love.

John 15:12 My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.

1 John 3:18 Let us not love with words or tongue, but with actions and in truth. (AKA, actions speak louder than words!)

James 1:19 My dear brothers and sisters, be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to get angry.

Proverbs 14:29 The one who is slow to anger has great understanding, but the one who has a quick temper exalts folly.

1 Corinthians 13:5 [Love] keeps no record of wrongs.
1 Thessalonians 5:11 Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as your are doing.

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

I hope that these verses help encourage and strengthen your relationship! Like I said earlier, keeping Christ the center of your relationship is crucial if you want the relationship to succeed!
