We work A LOT.

We work to make a living, achieve personal dreams and goals, and to build God’s kingdom. It’s easy to work because we live in a culture that glorifies it. Even when there’s nothing to do, we fill our schedules with tasks to stay busy.

While work is important (James 2:17), it’s crucial that we rest! Many believe that rest is a weakness. Others think that they don’t enough time to rest. Neither is true. God created the heavens and earth in six days. Guess what He did on the seventh day? Continue reading “It’s Time To Rest”

God is our protector. He holds all strength, power, and authority in His hands. While we may go through dangerous and tempting situations, we can rest in knowing that God will keep us safe and not allow evil to prevail.

As Hurricane Harvey traveled across the Texas Gulf Coast region early last week, I prayed and asked God to protect me and my loved ones. We live in the Houston area and I feared that the torrential rainfall and resulting flooding would cause our home harm. But even in my fear, I made it a point to pray scriptures of God’s promises to protect His children. As I prayed God’s Word, I could feel His peace assure me that everything would be okay. God was faithful and He protected me and my family from the dangers presented by Hurricane Harvey.

When you face a challenging situation, do not be fearful! Know that God is your protector and He will provide all of your needs. Pray and speak God’s word in faith and He will do exactly what He says.

Here are 15 scriptures to pray for God’s protection: Continue reading “15 Scriptures to Pray for God’s Protection”

Stop With The Comparisons! | Motivational Monday

Cupcake On My Mind

“Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don’t be impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life.” Galatians 6:4-5

It happens every day. We scroll through social media and see family, friends, and complete strangers post about their new car, marriage, or career move. While we like their posts and leave congratulatory comments, we secretly begin to compare our lives to theirs. Why haven’t I met my soulmate? Why haven’t I received a promotion at work? Where’s my breakthrough? These are all questions I’m sure we have all asked at one point.

When life is not going as planned, it is easy to compare ourselves to our peers. However, comparison distracts us from pursuing God’s purpose for our life. We begin to focus on everything we lack instead of God. This tears down our confidence Continue reading “Stop With The Comparisons! | Motivational Monday”

12 Scriptures on God’s Faithfulness | Motivational Monday

god is faithful

“God is faithful, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.”  1 Corinthians 1:9

God is faithful. Although we do not always see God at work, we can know for a fact He is protecting, providing for, and guiding us. God will fulfill the promises He made to us for His glory and our good. God blesses us with the knowledge, wisdom, and resources to do His will. The process may take longer than we expect and it may bring challenges. However, God’s timing is perfect and the hardships we face build our character and prepare us for the journey ahead.

It’s not always easy to believe God’s promises for our life, but we must be encouraged and push forward. We should think of everything He has already done in our life. It is said over and over, but it is true that if God did it before, He will do it again. If that does not encourage you, then open His word! It is the best way to remind yourself of God’s faithfulness.

For today’s Motivational Monday, I have compiled twelve scriptures about God’s faithfulness. Write, meditate on, and pray over them in every season of your life. You will know without a doubt in your mind that God is faithful.

1) Hebrews 6:10 (NIV) Continue reading “12 Scriptures on God’s Faithfulness | Motivational Monday”
