    Monday’s Encouragement: God Will Deliver

    Friend, Whatever you are going through in your life right now, whatever promises God has made, He will deliver. He will deliver on His promises and He will bring you out of any bad situation you’re in, in His perfect timing. It’s hard to wait and it’s even harder to wait with a good attitude. I know, we’ve been having to wait on a promise for almost two years now. And sometimes I’ve waited with a good attitude and sometimes I’ve waited with a bad attitude, but I’ve still had to wait because God will not change His timing based on our attitude. His timing is perfect and it won’t…

    Monday’s Encouragement: God Loves You

    Today I just want to give you this incredibly important encouragement: God loves you! No matter what you’ve done, who you are, where you’ve been, God loves you. There is nothing on earth that you could do to make God not love you. God is love. He is not about rules and regulations. When we truly love God, we want to please Him. But all God wants is for us to love Him and have a personal relationship with Him through Jesus. God loves you! If you’ve killed someone – God still loves you. If you’ve had an affair – God still loves you. If you’ve lied – God still…

    Monday Encouragement: God’s Plan is Perfect

    There are many times when I question what God’s plan is for my life. Things go wrong or don’t turn out how I expected and I wonder if God is there and knows what’s going on. Did He intend for this to happen? Does He remember my bills or deadlines? Does He know how old I am? Does He remember how long I’ve been waiting for this dream to come to fruition? What we all need to remember is that God’s plan is perfect. Whether we’re in hard times or good times, whether we’re seeing our dreams come true or still feel like we’re wandering in the dark – God…

    Monday Encouragement: Trust God’s Timing

    Every Monday I want to encourage everyone for the week to come. This week’s encouragement: Trust God’s timing! I know how hard it is to trust in God’s timing. We want things done now. We have deadlines and due dates. We think we’re ready and we think whatever we’re asking of God, or whatever God has promised, should happen right now. I felt that way for 18 years waiting for my husband, and now we feel that way about our financial situation. But God’s timing is always perfect. He brought Justin and I together at the right time and He’ll deliver our financial miracle at the right time. God has…

    The Truth About Discouragement

    You know, it’s really easy to give people advice, but it’s a lot harder to actually act on it yourself. So when you guys read these posts or watch my vlogs, please don’t think I’m saying anything lightly. I know how hard it is to do what God calls us to do. I’ve talked a lot about discouragement in the past like not giving up and how to have motivation and all that great stuff. I know everything that I’m supposed to do to encourage myself: Go to the Lord in prayer Sing praise and worship music Spend time studying God’s Word Rebuke the enemy Change my thought patterns Live…

    We All Have Bad Days

    Yesterday was a really bad day for me. I got angry at God because things aren’t going the way I want them to, or aren’t moving fast enough. I know, writing it down makes it sound so ridiculous (and childish), but I was really upset. I cried out of frustration and bitterness and fear of things to come. Thankfully, Justin helped calm me down. And today I started the day off much better, getting focused on God again. But yeah, it was hard. I felt guilty when I woke up today and at first, I was hard on myself. But I did ask God for forgiveness and I remembered how…
