    Living Loved-without end

    I really think we could talk about what it looks like to live loved from now until eternity. Don’t you? Living fully into what we were created to be is God’s original design for us and yet many of us, myself included can’t truly grasp all that entails. If we are honest we are usually so overwhelmed with His amazing grace and love for us that we can’t even fully embrace that. So to live loved has some of us, myself included in a constant learning, growing and maturing state of mind. But there is such beauty in that. Knowing that God has more for us to learn, more for…

    Living Loved-Part 4

    As a day that is recognized for pulling pranks and jokes on each other what we are talking about on the blog today is NO JOKE! Living loved means you are secure in the love of your Creator.  The One who fashioned you on purpose for a purpose.  To be in an intimate love and grace filled relationship with Him. Living loved means you are you.  You are comfortable with you. You love you. You are secure in who you are. There is no need to compare yourself to anyone else. Because again you are you. The world needs you. You’re unique and handcrafted to be that way. Comparison is…

    Living Loved-The Foundation

    God could not love you anymore than He does right now in this very moment. I was standing in an auditorium with my eyes closed when I heard those words yesterday. Those words were just what my heart needed. There is power, freedom, grace, joy, and peace in those words. Hear this; I could not love you anymore than I do right now. And know your Creator is speaking to you. This is the foundation. Love. Get rooted, firmly planted, and grounded in His love for you today. To live loved you have to start here. There is nothing you did, can do or will do to inflate or deflate…

    Living Loved- Part 3

    Thank you to everyone who participated and supported the Online Bible Study Expo last week.  I truly enjoyed meeting all sorts of new people. We will continue this week with what it looks like to live loved. Living Loved Part 1 discussed forgiveness. Living Loved Part 2 discussed being difficult to offend. Today we are going to talk about how living loved means living in freedom. When we are living loved we are living fully in the grace, love, peace, and joy God has for us. When we are living loved we are living the abundant life that Jesus came to give us. The thief comes only to steal and…

    Living Loved- Part 2

    Would you consider yourself difficult to offend? I think I try to be difficult to offend.  But there are times when my spirit isn’t as strong and I allow something someone says or does to rock me a little too much. To look around our world today I think people are easily offended. Which makes for a society that seems ready to explode at any moment. What would the world look like if we didn’t take everything that was said or done straight to our hearts and let it disrupt us? Would there be more peace? Would conversations flow more productively? I believe if we know we are loved and…

    Doubt. Deny. Disobey.

    There is an enemy of our souls.  One who causes us to doubt God’s voice, to deny His love and provision for us and to guide us into disobedience. The Bible has given the enemy a few names, satan, the devil.  In the third chapter of Genesis, the enemy comes on scene as a serpent.  The serpent comes to raise some doubt in the mind of Eve.  He has her questioning if what God said is really true.  He causes Eve to doubt what God said. Does God really know what’s best for me? Does God really have the best plan for my life? Does God even see me? The…

    Just as I am

    If I were to tell you right now in this moment that God accepts you and loves you just as you are, how would that make you feel? Do you think I am being wacky? Or do you know the truth when you hear it? I think we struggle with God accepting us just as we are because there is really nothing like it here on earth.  Thanks to advertising we feel we will not be accepted for our gray hairs, our wrinkles, our 10 year old cars, our curvy bodies, and our houses that don’t resemble high end decorator status. We can’t be accepted until we fix all the…

    How healthy is your mind?

    What does your mind look like? Have you ever thought about that? We experience the side effects of how healthy or unhealthy our mind is. If our minds are a chaotic mess of unorganized thoughts, ideas and dreams our lives will reveal this. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2 We live in a culture that applauds and favors a busy lifestyle.  The more you are doing must mean the more successful you are. What if we refused to…
