Words of affirmation and encouragement fill our souls. Life-giving words spur us on, give vision, and point to the purpose for which we have been created. They give life to faith, courage, and conviction.
My prayer is that this verse will remind you to intentionally serve the Lord. Lead your precious family to the feet of Jesus. Show up with all your flaws and brokenness. Remember His goodness. Speak your faith loudly. Let the love of Christ lead you to serve others. I just know God will bless you as you do.
"God longs to whisper your true identity over you. But the process of discovering your identity requires courage and determination. Courage, because you will have to let go of the labels and lies you have been carrying around. And perhaps ever harder, you need to receive His words of love and affirmation."
"Jesus came to give you a full, meaningful life. He came to give you peace, joy, freedom, and satisfaction. He chose to leave heaven and come to earth to take your place on the cross. He chose you. He wants you. He loves you. He is ready to give you a full, abundant life. The question is, do you want it?"
