Just as you are is more than enough.

Just as you are is more than enough.

A P P R O V E D.
You, just like that, are enough.

Knowing all of your craziness, your potential breakdowns and past mistakes AND your tendency to betray Him, the King of all Kings has deemed you APPROVED.

The cracks and the leaks and the breaks do not make Him run away; rather, He draws near. He does not find fault in you because His son already paid the sacrifice.

Perfect in your imperfection–yes. Yes, that is it.

So, stop striving. Stop clawing your hands, reaching for things to make you “better” or “prettier” or “relevant”. You will never get there. Reach for Him instead.

March up to His chair, sit on His lap and thank Him for the stamp of approval that was placed upon your head.

You are more than enough, you courageous, worthy & loved person.

Not barely touching the brim or in a position of losing your worth enough, but MORE. More, more, more than enough, just as you are, exactly where you are.

Will you walk in this truth with me today?

“For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.” -Galations 1:10

“So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” -1 Corinthians 10:31

Goodbye to guilt & receive His grace.
Goodbye to guilt & receive His grace.

May 30, 2018

I used to believe that guilt was holy in a way. It showed that I knew what Jesus was asking of me in a moment or that I knew something I should’ve done or been, and I regretted not being/seeing/doing that. Maybe it’s guilt over not being the best daughter you can be. Or brother, wife, husband, friend, sister, etc. Maybe it’s those words you said about a coworker in the heat of the moment that you didn’t...

Speak them out loud.
Speak them out loud.

I remember sitting in a conference a couple years ago and the speaker said, “Tell yourself out loud! Speak it over yourself but give it volume!” And I’m thinking, “I have never done that, consistently at least.” I was also thinking, “Is that like a true difference-maker? The whole giving it volume, making sure your own ears hear it thing?” Well, joke’s on me because I have noticed, over the big and the small things, that when I...
