You are one smart lady!

April 23, 2019

“For God did not give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear, but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline [abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control]” 2 Timothy 1:7, Amplified

Listen…

You may have messed up more times than you can count, but if the only smart decision you ever made was to give your life to the Lord, you are doing great!!! You were smart enough to receive Jesus and that’s something to smile about. Focus on the good and not the bad. Look at what you’ve done right, instead of what you’ve done wrong. Let joy rise in your heart instead of regret over past mistakes you can’t do anything to change. Be encouraged as you go through the process of learning how to be all God created you to be!

You surrendered your life to the Lord! That makes you one smart lady, and I’m proud to call you my sister!

Father God, thank you that I’m yours. I receive your forgiveness. I receive your love and mercy that’s new every morning. Help me to move forward and be made stronger and wiser. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
