I’ve been learning a lot lately, mostly that I don’t have to fight, that God is actually fighting for me. He’s not asking me to be stronger or have thicker skin or to deal with things myself. He’s asking me to trust him, walk in obedience & keep my heart soft towards him + his people. It’s been a journey & daily I have to ask God to show me how to be a softer, more gentle version of myself but maannnn is it worth it! It’s easy to not feel and just keep pushing, but it’s hard to take it all in, bring it to Jesus, then walk in obedience from there. It can be hard to live from the truth that God made me, God wants me, God has got this, God is making me new & He is giving me everything I need. But He promises all of that & His promises are the sweetest.
I’ve been stuck in Galatians/ Ephesians/ Philippians lately & I read this passage this morning & it got me in the best way possible. God loves you sooo much my friends. SO MUCH. ❤️
“I’m writing this letter to all the devoted believers who have been made holy by being one with Jesus, the Anointed One. May God himself, the heavenly Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, release grace over you and impart total well-being into your lives. Every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realm has already been lavished upon us as a love gift from our wonderful heavenly Father, the Father of our Lord Jesus—all because he sees us wrapped into Christ. This is why we celebrate him with all our hearts! And he chose us to be his very own, joining us to himself even before he laid the foundation of the universe! Because of his great love, he ordained us, so that we would be seen as holy in his eyes with an unstained innocence.”
Ephesians 1:2-4 TPT
