What if you had a love that rescued you, protected you, answered you, stayed with you, delivered you, and honored you? Imagine what that would feel like. You don't even have to worry about being perfect all of the time. This love is available, and it loves you where you are right now. You just have to call on it and be open to and accept it. This is the kind of love that Jesus has for us, and it's truly unconditional and yours for the taking. #OurWordsHavePower
Where do you see indifference in your heart? Has your heart grown cold? You may still have feelings for the Lord and convictions about His truth, but you may notice your desire to be in His word has waned. Your compassion for others has diminished and your focus has shifted from Christ to self.
Turn your eyes toward Christ. Confess your hardness of heart. Ask Him for help. Ask Him to revive you in His love and in His compassion to have mercy on you.
What needs to be changed in your thinking process? Where can you see your own futile thinking? Be observant of your thoughts today (Romans 12:2). When you catch yourself thinking a futile thought, stop, write it down, and put a truth in its place. If you think a critical thought of someone, stop and replace it with a loving thought. If you begin to worry, stop and put on the new self. Put on truth and find a Bible verse that will combat that worry head-on. Just remember that what we think will have profound implications on how we act. The first battle to be fought and won, with the help of Christ, is in the mind. Fight with dependence on His grace and the Holy Spirit.
We are serving a Holy God and if you have Jesus Christ then you will do the right things because we are no longer slave to sin. 😄😍😅😎😋 Brothers and sisters, continue to think about what is good and worthy of praise. Think about what is true and honorable and right and pure and beautiful and respected.
Philippians 4:8 ERV
"Finally, my brothers and sisters, always think about what is true. Think about what is noble, right and pure. Think about what is lovely and worthy of respect. If anything is excellent or worthy of praise, think about those kinds of things."

I get chills every time I read these words. My, how different my (our) days would look if I (we) intently lived by this truth. I pray God reminds me of this every day so that I can live each moment knowing His spirit dwells in me, and because of that all things are possible ❤

"It’s true what I’m saying. If our identity gets broken, it affects our ability to connect. And I wonder if we’re not all a lot better for each other than we previously thought. I know we’re not perfect, but I wonder how many people are withholding the love they could provide because they secretly believe they have fatal flaws."
