This week’s Motivational Monday is a little different. I usually share an insight on a specific subject or scriptures to pray over. Today I am sharing 5 inspirational sermons, teachings, and talks to help you get through the week. These sermons motivated me to act on God’s word and encouraged me in moments where I felt like giving up. I am sure they will be a blessing to you as well. Listen to them on your commute to work, during your lunch break, and even as you work. You will want to listen to these messages over and over again. Get ready to be creatively empowered in Christ!

God’s Sweet Promises | Motivational Monday

Do you consider God’s promises to be sweet? Usually when we think of sweetness, we think of something edible like the creamy goodness of a chocolate fudge brownie topped with vanilla ice cream or a handful of sugar-dusted gummy bears or even… I’m getting carried away. But to make my point, sweet things leave you satisfied and in many ways God’s promises do too.

Psalm 19:10 (NIV): “They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb.Continue reading “God’s Sweet Promises | Motivational Monday”

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”

4 Reasons To Keep A Prayer Journal | Motivational Monday

Joshua 4:21-24: “Then Joshua told the people: Years from now your children will ask you why these rocks are here. Tell them, ‘The Lord our God dried up the Jordan River so we could walk across. He did the same thing here for us that he did for our people at the Red Sea, because he wants everyone on earth to know how powerful he is. And he wants us to worship only him.’” (CEV)

Prayer journals are beautiful tools useful for strengthening any relationship with God. I started prayer journaling shortly after I began college. I needed a way to document my relationship with God during those transformative years. I used my journal to write down scriptures, prayers, and lessons I learned along the way. Seven years and several journals later, I have a collection of my hardships and how God provided breakthroughs and blessings for each one.

Because of my positive experience with prayer journals, I really want to encourage you to start one. Here are four reasons to keep a prayer journal: Continue reading “4 Reasons To Keep A Prayer Journal | Motivational Monday”
