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!

Growing Gratitude In The Graveyard
Growing Gratitude In The Graveyard

November 18, 2020 2 Comments

For the longest time I underestimated just how much power lies in our gratitude. Grumbling seems to come much more naturally, whereas gratitude may tend to be cultivated or grown over time. Unrest and exhaustion are glorified as the norm, and positivity isn’t talked about nearly as much as negativity.  Should it have to be this way? I grew my gratitude in my graveyard. Crazy right? My life in this particular season was as painfully desolate like the most barren desert imaginable. If anythin...

Rest Over Worry
Rest Over Worry

November 11, 2020

The first step of discovering true rest involves surrendering all things to God by acknowledging our innate need for rest. Oftentimes we find it hard to believe that the Bible specifically calls us to rest because we have become wired to operate in a world that teaches us we are to actively fight, lead the charge, never stop working, and always be aiming for the next thing. How easy it is to get lost in the whirlwind of measurements and judgments of the flesh when we operate on these principl...
