I think sometimes we forget that our bodies are nothing more than a combination of cells that will eventually turn into dust and dirt.
_
We are more than flesh and blood. We are the soul that lives within. This world puts SO much focus on physical appearance. Physical appearance is given more attention then necessary.
_
We shouldn’t treat someone better just because they are appealing to the eyes. Just like we should ‘t treat someone not as kind just because they are not the most attractive to us.
_
We are ALL beautifully made by the SAME Creator who is GOD. Therefore we are equally beautiful in His eyes. So no one should feel better about themselves just because the world may think that they are attractive. Just like no one should feel down about themselves because the world finds them unattractive.
_
Let’s start focusing more an the eternal qualities that will last, like our inner man. As opposed to our temporal qualities like our skin and face that will be dissolved into dust when it’s all said and done. Be encouraged! #F3 #FearlessFaithfulFollowing “But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.””-1 Samuel‬ ‭16:7‬ ‭

Friendship Tip: FRIENDS FORGIVE
_
Life has taught me the importance and value of forgiveness. We can not expect to have any lasting or healthy relationship without mastering the art of forgiveness. If you have yet to forgive, you have yet to be a friend. Even the most loyal, devoted, and loving friend will disappoint you at some point and time.
_
We are all flawed individuals in need of the grace and mercy of God. And within friendships there will be moments where we ourselves or the other person will need that same grace and mercy that God extends to us.
_
A true friend will forgive. The forgiveness will not run out and their forgiveness will be sincere. They will not harbor bitterness, resentment, or hatred toward you for something. They will seek to forgive with a genuine heart and not hold your wrongs/mistakes over your head.
_
In no way am I saying you should excuse sinful behavior or keep accepting hurt from someone. It's important in any healthy friendship to address issues and be honest about them. But the key is taking accountability, forgiving, and seeking reconciliation.
_
When a friendship is true and loving, forgiveness will be consistent, mutual, and freely given. A friend forgives and loves at all times. Be encouraged! #F3 #FearlessFaithfulFollowing #Friendship

One thing about Jesus is He knew who He was. Even when others sought to diminish His character and question His motives/intentions, He stood on the truth of what He knew about Himself and the truth about His Heavenly Father.
_
Jesus didn’t allow the opinions of others cause Him to forget about the truth of WHO HE WAS and IS. Jesus never felt the need to be defensive when people’s words, actions, and opinions of Him were negative.
_
He spoke truth, lived truth, and had truthful and genuine character. He let His life and His Heavenly Father be His defense. How much more should we follow His example, if we too are children of God? #Beencouraged #F3 #FearlessFaithfulFollowing

“Jesus answered, “Even if I testify on my own behalf, my testimony is valid, for I know where I came from and where I am going. But you have no idea where I come from or where I am going.But if I do judge, my decisions are true, because I am not alone. I stand with the Father, who sent me.”-John‬ ‭8:14, 16‬ ‭

There will be moments in life where the only thing that is able to pull you out of the pit of despair is the blessing of being able to REMEMBER.
_
To be able to REMEMBER the God who carried you in the past.
_
To be able to REMEMBER the God who strengthened you in the past.
_
To be able to REMEMBER the God who comforted you in the past.
_
To be able to REMEMBER the God who healed you in the past.
_
It is our REMEMBERING of the past deliverance of God that will continue to sustain us in our present suffering.
_
It is our REMEMBERING of the past deliverance of God that will continue to give us the courage to step into our future.
_
So if you’re dealing with a lot right now, feeling overwhelmed, downcast, or discouraged..take a moment....and REMEMBER.
_
REMEMBER the amazing God that loved you back then, the God who loves you now and the God that will continue to love you in the future.
_
It’s going to be OK.
Take a breath and ..
REMEMBER ..... “HE IS GOD. “ #F3 #FearlessFaithfulFollowing
_
“Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. My soul is downcast within me; therefore I will remember you from the land of the Jordan, the heights of Hermon—from Mount Mizar.”-Psalm‬ ‭42:5-6‬ ‭

How I feel about myself and how I feel about others is all an outpouring of how I feel about God.
_
The upward relationship with Him is directly correlated with the horizontal relationship with others.
_
If I’m being quick tempered, rude, angry, annoyed, jealous, and unloving towards others, that means I’m not loving God enough.
_
If I’m being negative, insecure, self destructive and hurtful toward myself, that means I’m not loving God enough. -
If I want to know what my relationship with God looks like, it will be manifested through my relationship with others. -
It is when we love GOD MORE, that we can love others BEST! -
“He answered, “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ ””-Luke‬ ‭10:27‬ “Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.”
‭‭1 John‬ ‭3:18‬ ‭“Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.”-1 John‬ ‭4:7-8‬ ‭ #F3 #FearlessFaithfulFollowing

I was chopping up some apples to go into my oatmeal and the next thing I knew, I was hysterically crying at the kitchen counter. Who was I trying to fool? (Myself) This mini emotional breakdown didn’t take God by surprise. I was trying to go through the schedule of my day, all the while trying to ignore the fact that I was extremely overwhelmed and stressed!
_
I felt like World War 1, 2, and possibly 3 was going on in my head and I couldn’t take it anymore! The things I had to do started to suffocate me. I was drowning in the pool of “my to-do list “because I had yet to give my schedule to the Lord!
_
I put the knife and apples down and just said, “Lord I can’t make it through this day without you. Lord I don’t even know what to do next. I need your help. I need you.” In that moment, I felt like the biggest weight was lifted off my shoulders. I walked away from the kitchen counter and went to commune with the Lord.
_
I share this to let you know, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Life can get stressful and overwhelming. We all have things to do, responsibilities to take care of, and challenges to face. However, we cannot do everything or be everywhere or be everything to everyone. That’s God’s job, not ours. Our job is to invite Him into each new day. We must ask Him to plan the day, guide us through the day, give us the strength for the day and ask Him for wisdom to accomplish His will for us in that day. Stay encouraged sweet soul! Remember, “Be at peace, not in pieces. “💕

“In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.”-Proverbs‬ ‭16:9‬ ‭#F3 #FearlessFaithfulFollowing

“God is the Master Artist. He is the very definition of creativity. He is the quintessential essence of Creative and Powerful. BY HIM all things were created and IN HIM all things find its purpose and meaning. We serve a magnificent God! The detailed and fine artistry that was put into making this world screams of His glory and love.”

A defining point in my Christian walk came when I finally began to understand that I was not fighting from a place of TRYING to win the battle, but that I was fighting from a place of VICTORY.
_______
SPOILER ALERT 🚨 .....JESUS ALREADY WON THE BATTLE FOR US!
_______
The battle is already fixed. That means if we have decided to be on #TeamJESUS through obedience to the Gospel, every move we make becomes victorious! Every single move. Even the moves that you feel are insignificant. Even the moves where you feel defeated. Even the moves where you feel tired. EVERY single move is still a victorious move! Every day we live we must understand that and truly believe that.
_______
Children of God, live and walk in the realm of VICTORY. The key is staying in the fight and staying on #TeamJESUS! You do not have to listen to the lies of the enemy! When he tries to tell you, “You’re not worth it,” tell him, “I MAKE VICTORIOUS MOVES!” When he tries to tell you, “You won’t make it,” tell him, “I MAKE VICTORIOUS MOVES!” When he tries to tell you, “You will lose,” tell him, “ I MAKE VICTORIOUS MOVES!” You are VICTORIOUS, today, tomorrow, and forever!

Lessons I learned from my car accident last night:
________
1. Things can be replaced, our life can not. At this point I’m not sure if my car is salvageable, but I’m ok with it. Why? Because I still have my life.
________
2. Sometimes we forget the seriousness of the responsibility that comes with driving a vehicle. We become too relaxed. We become easily distracted and not fully focused or present. Every time we get behind the wheel we have the power to affect not only our life but those around us.
________
3. We should pray without ceasing. Not just when we get on airplanes or when we are about to eat our food. We never know what lies ahead in each day. But staying in constant communication with God gives us the peace and courage to keep pressing on.
________
4. Love is STILL ALIVE in this world! So thankful for the sweet couple that ran to my safety, helped me out the car and made sure I was ok. They let me sit in their car as I sought to gain my composure. I definitely saw the love of God last night.
________
5. God is FAITHFUL and is always worthy to be PRAISED! Thankful for His mercy, kindness, grace, protection and constant love. He’s given me breath, life, and yet another chance to proclaim of His goodness!
________
Be Encouraged! I am fine, no major injuries happened to anyone. THANK GOD! I just have bruising and soreness! Please just continue to keep me in prayer. 💕 #F3 #FearlessFaithfulFollowing
