Day 226

"But when I give you a message, I will loosen your tongue and let you speak." ~Ezekiel 3:27


Day 225

Image
“Fear loses oxygen when every moment suspends itself under the purpose of bringing Him glory, of knowing His name and His nature. Sometimes, instead of leading us up and out of those very fears, big and small, He lets us live them. He gives us over to them. Because it’s in this giving over to our fears that we find the perfect love that frees us from them. Forever.” ~Sara Hagerty

“There’s a difference between good judgment and living in judgment.” ~Bob Goff

Day 220

Image
Several years ago, I poured out all the best words I had into a book proposal, only to get rejected.

At the same time, other writer friends were getting accepted by publishers. I said on the outside, “Good for them.” But on the inside, I just kept thinking, “Ouch…that means less opportunity for me.”

After processing for a while, I turned to God’s Word. He showed me new and life-giving realities.

Other people’s success does not threaten mine or yours. When they do well, we all do well.

And remember there is an abundant need in this world for your contributions to the kingdom — your thoughts and words and artistic expressions ... your exact brand of beautiful. Know it. Believe it. Live it.
~Lysa TerKeurst

"Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him."

"When we wonder why art and creativity matter to us in such deep and moving ways: because we (and all creation) were created by an Artist." ~Shauna Niequist

Day 213

Image
"Thank you God for this day and my beautiful new room. Amen!" ~ my son

Sometimes we just need to rearrange some things and get rid of clutter to have a fresh outlook - a new perspective - a shift in our mood. Sometimes that happens within us. God's stirring something new in my heart.
