Quotes

The only reason you see the shadow is because you’ve turned away from the light.

Process the light of the truth and change the way you’re thinking by replacing my thoughts with His thoughts and let His thoughts shape our actions.

When I walked in the truth, my feelings would begin to align over time.

We find two most powerful words in community: “Me too.”

Our girlfriends can be the one that says don’t be so hard on yourself.

Social media can give me a surfacey sense of community. It’s kind of like rice cakes – it doesn’t nourish my heart.

Quotes

Our physical health is so often product of and a reflection of our spiritual health.

Our lack of health is a result of us attempting to fill ourselves with something else other than Christ.

Quotes

The truths in God’s word really do hold me together.

Blindness makes me rely upon what I know and not what I see. Its a vivid faith lesson for us all. We can be guided by what we know and not what we see or what we don’t see or what we feel or don’t feel.

We can experience and walk by faith even when we’re not walking in the reality.

What we elevate highly in our life, like fear, is what’s going to govern our lives. When we elevate our faith above our fear, our fear has to bow to our faith.

The treasure is God really is who He says he is, he’s with you, and you’re never alone.

If I view God as a loving Father, and He is, then I don’t begin to question His love because He allows something hard in my life. Instead, I become more astounded by His love.

When he allows difficult things, even when he could take it away, that is a part of love that is beyond my capacity to understand.

Look at it as a sacrificial act of love towards me.

Sometimes the most loving thing God allows is for us to struggle because that’s what strips away the stuff that doesn’t really matter and helps us live a more purposeful life focused on what really does.

Any person that is inconsistent with us, that is not loving. God has been generous and kind to us to show us how to live our best lives.

Scripture

I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, who summons you by name. Isaiah 45:3

If your law had not been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction. Psalm 119:92
