My last semester of college, I struggled.
In fact my entire college experience felt like a struggle. Getting a degree is not easy. I felt overwhelmed constantly. I felt as though because I was getting this degree for God everything had to not just be right but perfect. Boy was I wrong! The truth is God does not expect us to be perfect, He desires us to be righteous through His Son, our Lord and Savior, Yeshua. Our Risen Messiah tells us that He came for those who know they are sinners, not those who believe they are already righteous. As a graduate I look back and I realize how the enemy use perfectionism as a tactic to make me miserable. I felt as if I had to take a certain amount of classes because I wasn’t working my junior and senior year, and that I had to get perfect or near perfect grades to impress others because I wasn’t working or living on campus. Woo! Let me tell you, living for others will get you no where. My degree was supposed to be for Christ yet instead of receiving it righteously by enjoying it, I desired to live for others opinions of me, often ones I made up on my own of what they thought, and my own vision, that I forgot about God’s vision for me. God desires me to be of joy, purity, and peace, and when you are living for others you joy is taken and you worry, your purity is taken because you stop living for God and begin living a perfectionist lifestyle that you can’t obtain, and your peace is gone as depression, anxiety, and fear set in because you cannot live up to these false standards you or other flesh had made up. It is not worth it. I am here to tell you to take it to the cross, hang it up, and follow Jesus! The Bible tells us to hang our iniquities at the cross! We are to crucify our past selves and RISE WITH JESUS CHRIST! Rise with the King of all Kings and live in His ones blessed children of God. Accept Jesus by repenting, believing, accepting, and living in Jesus Christ, He had already done the rest.
“Jesus loves you” is not an excuse to sin. Jesus loves us so much that He died for us to be freed from sin. He doesn’t want us to sin against Him, the Holy Spirit, or His Father in heaven. When Jesus died for us that was the greatest act of love to ever be. That a righteous man, both fully God and man, would take on the responsibility of our sins and resurrect giving us life. Only Jesus could die on the cross for us. We are unworthy, but HIS LOVE gives us worthiness. He declares us righteous and goes before our Father before us, allowing us to be righteous to God our Father. Jesus loves us, yes. But that is not an excuse to sin. It is a call to accept Him as your Lord and Savior, to change our old ways and live a new life in Christ Jesus. Thank you Lord for your love, your peace, your grace, and your mercy in Jesus name. Amen. ❤️
We are more than our earthly bodies for we are spiritual beings. As children of God we are granted the blessing of being a part of the body of Christ. God has given you his Holy Spirit to live inside you, interceding every single day for your greater good in Him. Giving us strength, power, and might.
Without Jesus’s salvation we would be nothing. He helps, saves, and protects us from evil when he knows their is absolutely nothing we can do in return for him that will pay him back for all he’s done, specifically for us.
We can praise him, accept him, share his words, but we can do nothing to repay God for giving us Jesus Christ to die for our sins, and there is nothing we can do to repay Jesus Christ for being our Savior! Yet, nonetheless, he is still their for us in these trying times of uncertainty. For he knows all, does all, and is all.
It’s time for us to be their for others, even if they cannot repay us, just as Jesus does for us every day. ♡
Praise him in the good, the bad, the ugly and the uncertain times of now.
He is worthy of your praise!
I love you God,
Thank you Jesus Christ. 🙌🏾
“This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.”
This has to be one of my favorite Bible verses to say.
Every day God gives us is a gift.
A gift to accomplish a goal, or to finish completing a dream he has fulfilled.
A gift to forgive someone, or to ask for forgiveness from ourselves.
A gift to reconcile with someone, or ourselves.
A gift to change lives or to change ourselves in him.
Whatever God is calling you to do today, do it.
Don’t wait, before it is too late.
He is always right on time. Maybe not the time you may think is best, but still he is always right on time, because his time is the best time.
He is with you, always.
He opened your eyes this morning.
Give him some time too. ♡
God has forgiven you,
Now it is time to forgive yourself.
– Tiara, words from God. ♡
At times we wonder what life will be like in the future, instantly forgetting the present and unforgiving the past.
We work so hard to the point where we forget to look at our surroundings. We purposely derive ourselves from current or past circumstances.
Instead of facing the hurt,
It is easier to keep ourselves busy in the pursuit that one day life will be so grand that those things that hurt us in our past will no longer be able to touch us.
I challenge you to live in the present.
Forgive yourself, it may take time and work, but the result is magical.
Give yourself over to God; only he knows the truth, the way, and the power he has to restore your heart and mind.
It’s worth it,
Every fight and inch of power within you is worth it.
Start treating yourself like someone who deserves it, because you do, friend.
