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!

I don’t know about you, but I’m a do-er. Environments I can thrive in the most can be those that consist of an incredibly busy schedule. The constant, “on the go” has a unique way of keeping me motivated to jump onto the next. There would be moments of excitement due to the accomplishment of fitting multiple tasks or multiple visits with people all in one day. That is - until the day I was convicted that my immediate “yes’s” to plans and people, and pressure to keep “doing more”, robbed my i...

“You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.” - Jeremiah 29:13 I’m an Oklahoma girl through and through, so when we moved to the Bay Area of California I was a little shocked to find they had almost zero similarities, the main difference being the weather. In the Midwest, the weather has kind of a blanket effect for the entire region. If it’s raining, it’s probably raining in other parts of the state. If there’s a cold front, everyone within a tri-state region is most...

Lord, I surrender the orbit I have fallen into to you. Restore my intention in relationship with the sisters you have placed around me so that I may champion them in their strengths and gifts. So that You may be revealed and glorified in our communion together. I thank you for gentle reminders of how You are at work in my life. Please give me eyes to see, ears to hear, and a heart that welcomes the ways in which you are moving.
