I have this amazing devotional called “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young. Today’s devo is so good, I would just like to share it! I am a complete worry wart, and I constantly forget how many blessings God has put into my life, including people.
Let thankfulness temper all your thoughts. A thankful mind-set keeps you in touch with Me. I hate it when My children grumble, casually despising My sovereignty. Thankfulness is a safeguard against this deadly sin. Furthermore, a grateful attitude become a grid through which you perceive life. Gratitude enables you to see the Light of My Presence shining on all your circumstances. Cultivate a thankful heart, for this glorifies Me and fills you with Joy.
And verses to check out are:
1 Corinthians 10:10 & Hebrews 12:28-29
Hello fellow bloggers!
I am looking into supporting a foundation or charity that helps encourage young girls. Are there any that come to mind? Please let me know! Thanks :]
Living in the now can be harder than you think. At least it is for me. My mind tends to get away from me, especially while doing homework. I begin to dream, and imagine where i’ll be in a year from now. But what I am beginning to realize, is that God wants you to live for today. Keep your mind on the present, not stuck in the past, or wishing for the future. God wants to use me TODAY. And if my head is focused on things that aren’t even going on right now, how can he use me? Just a thought that crossed my mind today.
I learnt a few days ago that leaving a small encouragement note actually does make a difference in someone’s day.
I live in a dorm full of girls, and love every minute of it. The other day, I noticed that one girl in my dorm was having a rough day, so I snuck into her room while she was in class and left a note saying “You are God’s Princess”. I thought I felt God put it on my heart to do this, but afterwards, I didn’t think much of it.
Before going to bed, as I did my ritual facebook/instagram check, I stumbled across a status that brought me to tears. The girl I had given the encouragement card too, (namelessly) had put a status up saying how incredibly appreciative she was of this note, and how it turned her whole day and attitude around. She said it truly did make her feel better about herself, and the situation she was in.
And for the first time, I finally felt like God really could use you for every gift that you have.
Movember? pft. Try no make-up November!
This month, go without make-up to see the way our amazing God see’s you!
This world is bombarding us with make-up products, and how we “should” look, and it tells us what they think is true “beauty”. Lets take a stand to all of this money grabbing that is affecting the way we view ourselves, and show Gods true beauty in leaving our faces the way he meant for them to be.
My personal experience so far has been a positive, and uplifting one. I usually put on make up to cover zits, or imperfections, and I put on mascara to look awake. This month I am saying “Who cares!” to that and going el natural. Join me in this movement. Its not to late!
Don’t fall into the patterns of this world. Be yourself and someone will love you for that.
