Salt. Brings about a thirst in others for the Lord.{Matthew 5:13}

The enemy comes to kill, steal, & destroy. I came that they may have life & have it abundantly. John 10:10

I, myself, am made with flaws, but as Augusten said I’m stitched together with good intentions. The more I’ve reached for God the faster the enemy has tried to attack. I’d be completely lying if I said I didn’t let it get me really really down. It’s taken pep talks, prayers & love to lift me up and tell that devil NOT TODAY. He comes to wreck our plans & wreck them hard. He, in my case, killed confidence, stole joy & destroyed my motivation. God tells us in James 4:7 Therefor submit to GOD, but resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

He is NOT important. His LIES are meaningless. You are WORTHY of God’s love.

During the mountains & valleys of life it is so easy to get beat down & feel broken, but sis.. you are loved. Even when you’re lost, hurt, & confused… JESUS LOVES YOU. He died FOR YOU. & HE makes NO mistakes.

I’ve told myself the ugliest lies about myself lately. Am I perfect? Absolutely not. Do I need to work on things? You bet I do. Do I make mistakes? Yup.

We all do. & God knows we will. He loves us REGARDLESS. He knows we are a work in progress. We are flawed, but still worthy of His love. How beautiful & refreshing is that?!

I cannot believe that I’m a mess most days. I doubt, I read into too much, I worry endlessly & feed into nonsense that won’t matter tomorrow. & HE loves me anyways. HIS mercies are NEW every. single. morning.

I say BLESS MY HEART & shame on me for putting so much doubt, worry, shame, & disgust with myself out there when I am surrounded by so much beauty in this world. How dare I stay wrapped up in little things & not soak up every single blessing of this world?

I woke up today & told myself.. no more. Repent & refresh. LOVE anyways. Give this life all I’ve got & then some. I’ve said this a million X’s & I THANK GOD that he gives me another chance, but I don’t want to be a better me.. I want to be more like HIM. We aren’t called to be like Christians.. we are called to be like CHRIST.

It’s never too late to build a better tomorrow. Forgive. Love. Inspire. Create. If it’s to be more like Jesus.. it’s worth it.
