Truth is, don't be surprised when trials come & invade your life. Truth is, we follow Christ in the good & bad, in the day or night. - The Average // Joseph O'Brien // @jbobrienmusic •
•
We can choose joy in every single day, good or bad! Jesus has given us abundant life (John 10:10), and through His death, we have been set free from all sin and shane! This gives us a reason to be joyful every single day. Whether life is going great or going badly, we have a steadfast and sure hope. Whatever this week or this day has looked like for you, I encourage you to choose joy and look for all the little blessings along the way. Life is good because God is good, and we can follow Christ in the good & bad, day and night. ❤️

Love these adorable verse cards from Girl Defined! 😍 I hung them all next to my bed to be encouraging daily reminders for me. They're so cute! •

Also, there's a new post up on the blog with tips for honoring God in your friendships with guys. Guy-girl friendships can be tough to navigate and even awkward at times, but if we keep God the focus, they can be wonderful and encouraging! Link is in my bio if you'd like to read the post. ❤️
Happy Wednesday! What's a verse that's encouraged you lately?! I'd love to hear in the comments!.

I'm living in awe,
Cause You don't need me at all,
But You couldn't love me more.
I'm living in awe,
Cause everyday I fall,
But you never let me go. ❤️ || In Awe by Hollyn @iamhollyn •

The Lord sees us and fully knows us. He knows we fail Him daily, and that we are prone to sin. Yet, He still chooses to love us. Although we run away from Him & sin against Him, God still loves us & makes us His own. He redeems us and makes us His holy children! How beautiful is that? He is such a faithful & perfect Father! HalleluYah ❤️🙌🏻

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.
~ Ephesians 1:3‭-‬6.

God doesn't withhold things from us because He doesn't love us, but because He does. || My friend shared that thought with me last night and WOW. Makes ya think, doesn't it?
•
It can be easy to think that God is withholding things from us that we feel we'd be better off with - more friends, a boyfriend, a better job, more money, etc - & that we need those things, or that God must not love us if He's not giving that to us. However, if we were meant to have whatever it is we're wishing for, God would give it to us. He is a good good Father who is always tending to our needs. He gives us abundantly more than we could ever ask or think!
•
The next time you find yourself comparing your life to others or longing for something you don't have, start praising God for what you do have, and that He always knows what's best for you. Praise Him for keeping you from what you don't need, and giving you what you do. 💕
•
Not that I speak in respect to lack, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content in it. I know how to be humbled, and I know also how to abound. In everything and in all things I have learned the secret both to be filled and to be hungry, both to abound and to be in need. I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me. || Philippians 4:11‭-‬13.

The believer's ministry is being Christ's person right where he or she is, in the marketplace or the home, every moment of every day. This is part of the everyday business of holiness. This is the very nature of loving God. - Loving God by Charles Colson

I've been reading Loving God lately, and while it's not my favorite book, it has a lot of solid truths and helpful reminders for us as Christians in our pursuit of loving God. 💕♥️•

Who the Son sets free
Is free indeed
I'm a child of God
Yes I am. 
I am chosen,
Not forsaken.
I am who You say I am. || ~ Hillsong

Who the Son sets free Is free indeed I'm a child of God Yes I am. I am chosen, Not forsaken. I am who You say I am. || ~ Hillsong "Who You Say I Am" • I hope & pray that when you look in the mirror, your confidence isn't placed in you. When you put your confidence in how you look or what others say about you, that confidence will change day by day. On the other hand, when you place your confidence in the Lord and in His Word, who He is & who He says you are, you will have a true and deep confidence that lasts. • • Friend, the truth is that you will never be enough. Placing your confidence in yourself will always leave you empty. You'll always be longing for more until you place all your hope and trust in God. When He saves you, you become His child. You are chosen & not forsaken, who HE says you are. YOU ARE FREE!! You are loved by the King of Kings with an everlasting love (Jeremiah 3:13)! Put your confidence in THAT today. ❤️ Our sufficiency us from HIM. • Such confidence we have through Christ toward God; not that we are sufficient of ourselves, to account anything as from ourselves; but our sufficiency is from God; 2 Corinthians 3:4‭-‬5 • • 📷: the amazing @sarah_marie_photography 😚 ...

Purity isn’t merely setting up guards, trying on our own strength to be holy & refrain from sex. It’s daily letting God cleanse us from sin, crying out to Him, “make me holy, as You are holy.” True holiness comes from denying ourselves and our sin, asking God to cleanse us and give us strength to live righteously. •

God showed me something during my Bible time yesterday that I wanted to share with ya'll! I was reading 2 Samuel 9, where David searches to see if there are any of Saul's descendents left alive, who he could bless for his dear friend Jonathan's sake. He hears that Saul has a son named Mephibosheth who is lame in both feet. David meets with him and gives him Saul's land, and tells him he can eat at his table anytime.

David, king at the time, was blessing this man who was lame and likely could do nothing for him. When Mephibosheth received this kindness, he simply couldn't understand why David would bless a "dead dog" such as himself. Does this remind you of something? It reminded me of God's unmerited favor, love, and grace poured out on us. US, who have never done anything for God. • I wish I responded as humbly as Mephibosheth to the grace of God and salvation. I can't tell you why God would love people such as you and me, yet He DOES. We don't sit and ponder that enough, that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Oh where would we be without Jesus? ❤️ Thank Him for saving you often, because we would be lost in sin if He hadn't. Oh, praise the One who paid my debt & raised this life up from the dead! ...

Jesus be the center of my life
Jesus be the center of my life

This is what long for in my life - for Jesus to be at the center, and for me to have full satisfaction in Him alone. May He become greater, and we become less. And may the things of Earth become strangely dim as we fix our eyes on Him. ❤️ Happy Sunday!.
