In my family, whenever we gather for a celebration, there’s always cake involved. And as an unofficial family tradition, I receive one of the four corner pieces of said cake (corner pieces have the most icing!). By the time I get to the dessert table, I know there’s a single corner piece off to the side, just for me. And just as I look forward to receiving what I consider to be the best part of a cake, God also desires our best.
You are worthy. And your worth does not decrease when other people are not able to see it. Your value does not lessen when you feel insecure, because your value is found in Christ. Your dreams do not become impossible the moment someone shoots them down, unless you decide you will no longer pursue them. Because faith without works is dead and if you're going to believe in God you must also believe you were created in His image and the desires He has given you will come to pass. That has to become your truth.
As a daughter of God, you don't have to "prove" yourself to anyone else. You don't have to brag or convince anyone that you are valuable and worthy. God has already accepted you as His own and it is His opinion that matters.
Don’t hide who you truly are - who God created you to be - out of fear of what others will think. Don’t neglect what you know God has called you to do because of the negativity and discouragement you receive from others. Embrace wholeheartedly His plan and purpose for your life.
The same God who knows the beginning from the end, knew that you would make mistakes. He knew you would never be perfect while on this earth, and He chose to love you anyway.
The same God who cares enough to clothe the lilies in the field will also take care of you.

I would be lying if I said it was easy being single or that I am always content in the season that I'm in. Oftentimes, I have felt as though people brush the desire for marriage under a rug and say that you shouldn't even be concerned with it. Let's be honest... those desires are … Continue reading Still Waiting on God? An Encouragement to Single Ladies
Have you ever felt like you've drifted away from God, or like you just weren't as close as you were before? Or maybe you've never felt that close feeling, but you want to. What do you do when you feel far from God? Because being in that place can be discouraging. It sometimes feels impossible … Continue reading Far From God
"A kingdom divided by civil war will collapse. Similarly, a family splintered by feuding will fall apart. And if Satan is divided and fights against himself, how can he stand? He would never survive." Mark 3:24-26 (NLT) As Christians, we are constantly in war. You vs. the enemy, flesh vs. spirit (you vs. you), and … Continue reading Civil Wars
