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”

Overcoming Fear

overcoming fear

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7 NKJV

Fear is something that we battle daily. It knocks on our door as we prepare for a job interview or embark on a new business venture. It tries to hold our hand when a relationship we thought would last forever ends. And it attempts to wrap its arms around us after God reveals vision of our life.

While it is natural to experience fear, know that it is more than an emotion –it is a spirit. The enemy sees no problem in using it as weapon to prevent us from pursuing our God-given purpose. We can spend years bound by fear, unable to take the next steps in fulfilling our destiny. It is incredibly important that we learn how to overcome fear! Here are three strategies: Continue reading “Overcoming Fear”

In the age of social media, we are just one swipe away from a meme that tells us what women should do to be loved. We must be loyal, ladylike, and submissive. All while keeping up with our appearance and caring for others by cooking, cleaning, and nurturing. In reality, none of these things make you lovable especially in God’s kingdom.

God’s love is unconditional! He gives it freely and consistently because we are His daughters. God does not require anything from us in return for His love. Granted, God may not like some of the things we do, but His love still prevails. He loved us first – before we loved Him, ourselves, or anyone else. The beauty in it all is that God’s love is personified by Christ. Jesus was crucified and resurrected from the grave so that we could be forgiven of our unrighteousness and have a personal relationship with our Father. God not only tells us that He loves us, He shows it!  Continue reading “12 Scriptures on God’s Unconditional Love”

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”
