Psalm 46:5

I was just journaling this morning about a few things I'm struggling with, but I felt comforted when I came across this verse.

"God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved, 
God will help her when morning dawns."

I needed this scripture this morning.

I pray it encourages your heart too.

God is here, working in every detail of ours lives. We have nothing to fear. He WILL come through for us. He is faithful on His promises. He loves to reveal Himself as we continue to trust in Him.

I hope you have a good day beauties. Let's try to make the most of the opportunities before us today. Let's love extravagantly, listen patiently, serve joyfully, and do everything as if we were doing it for Jesus Himself.

If there's anything coming up against you, making you feel inadequate or unworthy, kick that thing to the curb.

I'm here to remind you that if you weren't here, something would be missing. God has put life and gifts and potential within you that are unique to you alone. We need you to fulfill the call on your life, because your influence will change the world. If you deny the glory God has put within you & don't fulfill that call on your life, He can raise up someone else to do it, but something precious will be lost in the process.

Be uniquely you. Beautifully you. That's enough. As soon as you feel yourself striving to be more or do more, stop, take a deep breathe, and ask Jesus to remind you of His personal love for you. Ask Him for new strength.

This life isn't about what everyone else thinks of you. At the end of the day you are accountable to God alone. That is a frightening and wonderful thought. We don't have to live at the mercy of the opinions of others, and yet we need to get to know God so we are living according to His standard.

Anyway, all that is really just to say, we are okay. We are loved. We are accepted. We will not be moved.

"God is in the midst of her, she shall not be moved, 
God will help her when morning dawns."

I thought of this picture as I was reading the scripture this morning. Shaun took it on his i-phone last summer at the Getty. I like it because it shows I feel... everything around me is chaos, but because Christ is within me, I will not be moved.
