Remember, even if you don’t see how things could ever work out, God does. You’ve got to speak to those mountains in your life and declare favor over those situations. Instead of talking to God about how big your problems are, talk to your problems about how big your God is! As you speak to your mountains, they will be moved, and you will move forward into the victory God has prepared for you!
This statement stands true in my life. Thank you for Your unfailing love!
God loves and uses imperfect people. We all make mistakes. But because Jesus died and rose from the grave, every mistake we will make or ever make has been paid in full. Don’t let shame and guilt keep you from receiving God’s love any longer. Psalm 103:12 (NIV) says, “As far as the east is from the west, our sins are removed from God’s memory.” Since God has removed them from His memory, it’s time we do the same and move forward with God and receive His love and mercy. You may have made mistakes, but God still believes in you, loves you and has an amazing future in store. Keep your heart toward God, and He will show Himself strong on your behalf!
"In everything you do, put God first, and He will direct you and crown your efforts with success." - Proverbs 3:6
When I was in middle school, we were required to put our life motto/verse in the yearbook. And I wrote down, “In everything you do, put God first.” as mine. I grew up in a Christian school where we have our Christian Education classes. And on Wednesdays, we go to our school chapel (we even have a white uniform that we would specifically wear for that day).
I remember how I would give my tithes and offering like it was no big deal. Because then, I was so caught up with the idea that I should put God first. But when I grew older (and became more exposed to the world), I kind of struggled with giving because I felt like my allowance was not enough to buy everything I want and need. Then, I came to a point where I barely got by with my money so I decided to start tithing again, I started putting Him first in every aspect of my life including my finances. And you know what, God was faithful in providing for my needs that I barely struggled financially. He has blessed me beyond I could ever imagine. So, I encourage you to trust Him with what you have and see how amazing He truly is.

DARE TO BE HAPPY WITH WHO YOU ARE
"When you go around trying to be somebody else, not only does it demean you; it steals your uniqueness."
#89 I love taking pictures of my baby cousins.
…which is mostly candid. I tend to keep taking pictures until I get the perfect shot (or at least something decent) and let’s just say that they have so much energy to stay put.
