What to Believe

We believe what people tell us. But we can trust what God says even more.’
-1 John 5:9a

I read this today and it stuck with me.


There are a lot of voices out there. Ours, the many other people in our various circles, near and far. Voices on television, the internet – so many people saying things.

Whether it is people we know or people who aren’t talking directly to us at all, we have so many voices in our ear all the time. So out of all of this information and opinion, what do we believe?

Some of what is said to us is what we consider good. Some of it isn’t. It’s a lot to process, and a lot to think about sometimes.

But in the end, as the verse above states…regardless of what we’re hearing, we can believe and trust in what God says about us above everything else.

It’s so important to do that. I don’t do the best job of it, I’ll be the first to admit it. That’s putting it lightly. But seeking approval and affirmation from God above all the other voices is where true peace will be found. It’s where we will find our real answers.

So while it’s ok to listen to all of the voices that are there, trust what God says about you the most and go with that. You’ll never go wrong if you do.

Have a great day!

Perfect Love

1 John 4:18a
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear.

Cloud Hearts

What a great reassurance from God! His love for us is perfect and with Him, there is nothing to ever be afraid of.

Always love. Never fear.

Have a great day 🙂

Seems Simple Enough, Right?

1 John 4:21
The commandment that God has given us is: “Love God and love each other!”

It’s amazing how we make this more difficult than it seems sometimes. Guilty for sure, here.

But come on. We can do this 🙂

Let’s love the God who created us, who forgives us, and who loves us unconditionally…and let’s love the people He created while we’re at it, too.

Have a great day!
