No matter where we are or what we lack God’s love for us is steadfast

God’s Promise - When I need assurance that God loves me 

Recently I visited my great-aunt/Nana, and found this tiny (literally fit in the center of your palm) Bible that read “The Tiny Bible Promises”. 
I gently asked her if I could have it, and she responded (as she always does) “You can have anything in this house, including me.” She is the sweetest. She will never know the impact of the tiny gift she gave me. 

One of the powerful nuggets I have taken from this Tiny Bible of God’s unfailing promises is that no matter where we are, who we are, what we lack, what we desire to accomplish… God’s love for us is steadfast. It remains. 

Being human, we often lose sight of how much we are loved by our Savior. 
When we need assurance that God loves us, The Tiny Bible Promises refers to the book of Psalms and Romans for gentle reminders: 

“For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, abounding in steadfast love to all who call upon you.” Psalm 86:5 ESV

“The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.” Psalm 103:8 ESV

“For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us.” Psalm 103: 11-12 ESV

“But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8 ESV


God Almighty loves you! Bask in that!

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...

We don’t have to spend our life trying to measure up or please others around us. When God gives us direction, we can move forward with confidence. Not because we think we’ll be popular with others, but because we have the approval of God.
