When God Shows Up

cross-love

“When God shows up, He usually shows up through you!”
-Phil Schneider

Hearing these words made an impact on me the other day.

It makes total sense, when you think about it. We all have the ability to love like Jesus, to make an impact on others’ lives like Jesus, to be world changers like Jesus.

It requires us to be willing to do it, of course. 🙂

Ah, but when that happens, God shows up…and He can show up in a big way, even bigger than you could imagine.

As Mr. Schneider also pointed out, “There are God moments waiting for you today.”

So, what are you waiting for? Go find yours! Have a great day.

Eye of the Storm

I hope this encourages you, if you’re going through a difficult time right now.

Sometimes, life does not seem – and simply, is not – fair. People turn against you. Plans unravel. Darkness seems to cloud the light.

But, here’s the good news: God is always there for you and that will never change. I hope you’ll know that no matter how difficult the situation might be, God knows where you are and He has a good plan for your life. It’s going to be alright!

2 Thessalonians 2:16a
God our father loves us. He is kind and has given us eternal comfort and a wonderful hope.

Believe in Yourself

Believe in Yourself

John 15:16
You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name.

For anyone who’s struggling with self-confidence right now, just take a moment and realize that God sent His only Son to die for you. Think about that…He believes in you so much, He chose to do that.

So, believe in yourself. Go in confidence today, knowing that you are loved and have been put on this Earth to do great things!

I am Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

Fearfully and Wonderfully

Psalm 139:13-18
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand – when I awake, I am still with you.

We shared this passage with the students in our youth group this week. Sharing with you here today to remind you that you are God’s amazing creation. Don’t ever forget that. Repeat it to yourself a few times if you have to: I am fearfully and wonderfully made!

You are unique and special and well-loved. His love is sufficient, friends.

Have a great day!
