"and My people who are called by My name humble themselves, pray and seek My face, and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land."
2 Chronicles 7:14
#healing #nation #America

There is alot of talk around this time of year about how America needs to change for the better. But what we often forget is that no matter the choices we make and what we think will improve our nation, God, the Creator, is the One who is ultimately in control. I saw this Bible verse on a billboard yesterday and thought I would share it with y'all. I agree, America needs change, but the change we need is not in the hands of our future office officials, but in God's. We must first humble our selves, and seek our Father's face. To expect an improved outcome without changing our focus of who the real Problem-Solver is, is seriously insane. We, Americans, need to turn from our sins so that we may all be forgiven. And this is the path for a gracious healing of our land. God's instructions in this verse are the answers to our request for change. Through God, we can and we will have our nation back. We will once again live in the one and only AMERICA, the one God made for us!

Confidence is Gorgeous!

I have been reading a lot of inspirational life stories recently and I have repeatedly noticed how society pressures us to gain the approval of others...but why? Truthfully, if you haven't hurt anyone, other's perception of you is really none of your business. Honestly, whether you are Miss America, the President, or Wonder Woman not everyone is going to like you. It's is just unavoidable! Some people are not going to laugh at the jokes you tell, approve of your wardrobe, or even give you the time of day...but seriously, no matter the judgements, disapproval, or insults thrown your way, being confident and ultimately happy with who you are, is an unbreakable sheild around you. Please just remember how AMAZING, GORGEOUS, and SPECIAL you are, and believe will be Bulletproof!

Just a Lil Encouragement for You Guys Today:

You guys, please believe that God made y'all BEAUTIFUL! Believing that you are pretty is not conceited at's REVOLUTIONARY!
Part of my devotion today read: "Among all God's creatures, only humans can anticipate future events. This ability is a belessing, but becomes a curse whenever it is misused. If our minds are used to worry about tomorrow, we cloak on to the dark unbelief. However, when the hope of heaven fills our thoughts, the Light of God's Presence envelops us. Though heaven is future, it is also present tense. As we walk in the Light of our Lord, we have one foot on earth and the other in heaven."

Worry steals moments away from us that we can never get back. Whether it is about tomorrow, two months from now, or two years, God already knows the outcome and has our best interests in mind. Instead of wasting time thinking about the "what ifs," why not just spend every minute living our lives for a purpose? And the purpose is for God's honor and glory. With God's magnificence in mind, there is actually no time to worry or fret!

Fall is in the Air!

Okay peeps...guess what? Tomorrow is FALL y'all!!!! Aren't the changing seasons such a wonderful way for God's artwork and greatness to be displayed? Let's just think for a minute...God made the grass, trees, birds, plant life, sky, and everything in between and yet instead of declaring us(humans) "good" just as He described the others, after God created us, He declared us "very good." We were created in His own magnificent! Whether winter, spring, summer, or fall, the Lord definitely provides us with a gallery of beautiful scenes, but just as you can not have a spring without the showers, or a winter without the freeze, seasons in life may also not go as we would like for them to sometimes either. Fortunately we know that God's plans are always perfect yet sometimes we may not be able to see the beautiful picture He is painting for us at the moment. Just as the showers in spring, may cancel our outdoor plans but the result of the flowers are beautiful, the stormy seasons in our lives can also be looked at from a perspective as if taking a step back and seeing the full picture of our lives coming together beautifully. I pray that each of you reading this will apply the spring shower's affects on the growing flowers to your life by remembering that there is a season and time for everything and God has perfect timing....never early, never late.
