No Pressure / Big Potential

no-pressure-big-potential

Do you ever feel like you have to do everything right for God to accept you? Do you ever think that your circumstances or what you’ve been through negate your opportunity to be a light for Him in this world?

God isn’t looking for perfection, or for us to reach some bar or level in life. It’s our heart that matters, as in, what we do with our lives. We all have the ability to do something with our lives, regardless of what they’ve been like to this point.

Whether you have a million dollars or if you have 10 cents. Whether it’s been a life of mostly walking the straight and narrow path or if you’ve wandered all over the place. You have potential and can serve God and make a positive impact during this life!

Some of the greatest blessings in this world come from people in the latter category of both of those comparisons – giving completely of themselves, even though they have very little money or even though they’ve lived much of their lives away from God.

I have seen this personally from many people who have “nothing” in terms of finances or status, and from people have experienced truly terrible things in their lives. It doesn’t seem to matter to them; they just serve others and do the best with what they have, and in spite of their past. It inspires me.

Let’s get back to that first question. No one should feel pressure to perform for God; He loves us, period. Instead, every day is just a great opportunity to serve Him, regardless of who we are, what we’ve done or where we come from. This can be done in so many different ways. Inspiration is so needed in this world and it can be found almost anywhere, and provided by anyone. So thankful for that!

Have a great day.

It Is Well

“Seas that are shaken and stirred,
can be calmed and broken for my regard.
Through it all, through it all, my eyes are on You.
Through it all, through it all, it is well.
It is well with my soul.”

God never leaves us, regardless of what happens in this life.

I’m so thankful for that.

Just wanted to put this out there as a reminder, in case you’re going through a tough time right now. He’s there. Even when it doesn’t seem like it, He’s there.

Thank you for loving us, Jesus!

Good Friday

Good Friday. It’s a day that didn’t always mean much to me, but it does now. Thinking about how much God loved me when I didn’t love Him…it’s amazing. Friends, it doesn’t matter where we are in life. He loves us – whether or not we love Him back. It’s the real deal, unconditional love. We don’t have to be “worthy enough” to receive it and it doesn’t cost us anything. The price was paid that day on the Cross. So thankful for that. 🙂

Thank you, Jesus…just as I am, I come. Hallelujah, oh what amazing love!
