Arm Yourself with the Truth

Arm Yourself with the Truth

“Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist…” - Ephesians 6:13-14

I once heard that the closer you are to God, the more Satan will attack you. Well, I must be growing in my faith because I’ve been in a wrestling match for weeks now, struggling with feelings of inferiority, purposelessness and imposter syndrome. More often than not, I find myself pep talking my way out of a spiral.

We’ve talked before about how Satan pumps lies into our mind, and I want to reiterate that these occurrences aren’t few and far between: we’re constantly under attack. To defend ourselves, we have to make sure we arm ourselves with God’s truth every single day, if not every hour, because Satan is on standby, waiting for the opportunity to pounce on our vulnerable hearts. 

Sister, arm yourself with truth today! Write this down on a post-it, put it on your mirror and seal it in your heart. 

[We are daughters of the God of the Universe, children of the King. You and I are worthy, we are loved, and we are already enough because of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross]

If you’re single
If you’re in a hard relationship
If you’re working a job or in a career that doesn’t feel right
If you’re questioning your calling or talents
If you’re experiencing hardships with your children
If you have a small Instagram following
If your dream seems too far away

 

No matter the if, please meditate on this friend; You are already enough. 

 

We don’t have to keep trying to measure up to who the world (or our inner Regina George) tells us to be. God calls us His beloved children and says the blood of Jesus already met his standards for us. May we believe this truth and remind each other of it in times of doubt and darkness!

A weekend that will not soon be forgotten!! This group of ladies who began as strangers and quickly became friends were kind, hilarious and brave. We spent four days and three nights retreating together in Seaside, FL enjoying a gorgeous home, personal chef, sunset beach photos with our photographer, beach walks, bike rides and porch hangs. I'm grateful for the quiet, the conversations and the reminder of the peace we get to live with in Him. I cannot wait to reunited with this group of ladie...

The Importance of your Testimony
The Importance of your Testimony

Your story matters. Each time we are brave enough to allow people in and share what we've been through or currently going through, we’re trusting God with our testimony and giving Him permission to use our story to showcase His power or move in someone else’s life. Keep showing up in faith, being willing to tell others about what God has done for you and what He’s teaching you. Keep opening your heart with courage and vulnerability.  Because it’s not about US – it’s about HIM. We are just ...

There’s never a perfect Goldilocks season where you feel “just right.” You’re too young, and then one day you realize that you’re too old. There’s never an in-between.That is, unless you choose to believe that God can use you at ANY age for the plans He has for you.Use this as your reminder today that God doesn’t see you as the world sees you. He is not fazed by age-restrictions or traditional time frames. The Lord is never late and never early, and He wants us to trust His timing.When you re...
