Are you worried about something this morning? Is that worry weighing you down and making you weary? If so, I have some GREAT news for you! God has not only a plan for each of us, He promises to take care of our physical needs as well as our spiritual needs. How incredible is that? Matthew 6:34 in the Message says....34 “Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes. I don't know about you but I have spent many days (and sleepless nights) worrying about things that may (or may not) happen. And honestly, the things I worry the most about usually do NOT happen. This verse is a reminder that He wants me (and you) to stay in the here and now- focusing on what He is doing today, right now- instead of worrying about tomorrow. He promises that He WILL help us handle whatever hard things arise- so we don't have to. What a great comfort that is! So stop worrying friends- because worry slanders every promise of God. Focus on His promises and his faithfulness. Because He has never and will never let you down. 🙌🏼
Getting closer! 🏡❤️ T minus one week!
THIS! 🙌🏼❤ We must SEEK Him and He WILL delivers us from our fears. ALL fears. No matter what you fear- financial hardship, illness, relationship issues, work related problems, children straying from God,loss of someone you love- know He is there waiting to deliver you from those fears. Turn your face to Him- towards His never ending love and protection. When we believe in that great, limitless love- the things of this world grow dim and we can rise above our fears and find rest in His love. ☀️

One of the many things I loved and admired most about my sweet friend Sherri was her boldness. She lived life big and unapologetically bold. She served big, she laughed big, she talked big, she shopped big, and she loved big. As someone always way too worried about what people think about EVERYTHING no one would ever describe me as bold. During my brain tumor journey Daniel 3:18 became the verse I clung to and as brave Sherri began her ALS battle it became the verse she clung to as well. (If you don’t know the story please go read Daniel 3!). Those closest to me know that I’ve been talking about getting that verse tattooed on my wrist for over 3 years. Sherri died the day before my birthday & so as I sat crying I told my husband that evening that although I didn’t want to celebrate my birthday the next day I wanted to go get Daniel 3:18 tattooed on my wrist in honor of my precious friend. I texted Sherri’s daughter Katie to see if she would go with me & she not only immediately agreed, she told me she planned to get her own in honor of her sweet mama. My plan had always been to have the verse tattooed very small & lightly on my wrist- simply as a reminder for me. But my wrist is super small so it wasn't going to fit across it & the tattoo artist said it would need to be larger or in a different font. So I quickly decided I was going to have it done larger for 2 reasons 1. It would be a great conversation starter & lead others to God’s word as well as be a reminder of His goodness & faithfulness. Most people don't know that verse & when they ask me about it it will give me a chance to tell them about it or it will encourage them to open their Bible & read it. 2. Sherri lived her life BOLDLY & I am tired of being timid & worried all the time what people are going to think. I'm going to be obedient to God & live bold just like her. Each time I look down I smile & think of my brave, sweet friend & remember that God IS good & she is healed and with Him in glory. I vow to live my life BOLD like she did & I will miss her every single day. Even if He doesn’t answer our prayers the way we wish and hope- God is good y’all. He is good. ❤️
“Sitting silently beside a friend who is hurting may be the best gift we can give.”So thankful for friends who live this out- both physically and from far away. ❤️ (And thank you @jameejb for snapping this picture).
