Are You Living for God or Self?



I posted this status on Facebook: 


And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. -Romans 12:2

Living for God is HARD! When you want to go off on someone but you know deep down, that is not what God wants you to do...what do you do? When your friends want to go out and get drunk...Do you? When your ego wants to react in a negative way and you are thinking how dare they, I will show them...Do you react in a Godly way or let your ego win out? Our ego/pride is a beast to conquer! Isn't it?? However, if we don't conquer it, it will destroy us. 

When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom. -Proverbs 11:2

These are all things to consider when you are seeking to live for God. Things I struggle with on a daily basis. I am slowly overcoming these temptations by praying before I react. I ask God to guide my words, tone, and the way my words are received. It helps a lot! 

How are you learning to live for God instead of self?

6 Things to Remember When You are In the Midst of a Storm

Blessings loves!

At one time or another we are all going through storms or hardships in our life. It could be a job, marriage, parenting, sickness ect. We may feel alone, like we won't make it through, or there is no way out. Well, remember God wants you to overcome and is with you! Here are six things (and scriptures) to remember when you are going through! 



God works in His time not ours: He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end. -Ecclesiastes 3:11

He has wonderful plans for us! For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. -Jeremiah 29:11

God is always with us! Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” 
-Joshua 1:9


Go to God with your troubles. Stop trying to do it alone! Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” -Matthew 11:28-30

His strength is glorified in our weakness. Let your ego go. And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.  Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong. -2 Corinthians 12:9-10

You are not the alone! You aren't the only one going through this. No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. -1 Corinthians 10:13


What scripture do you turn to when you are going through a storm?

5 Reasons No Weapon Formed Against You Shall Prosper!



No weapon formed against you shall prosper,

And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord. -Isaiah 54:17


I just love that scripture! Don't you? It reminds me that no matter what I am going through, I am a child of God and He has my back! 

Here are a few reminders that God is with you and no weapon formed against you will prosper!



For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. -Jeremiah 29:11 

Isn't that a blessing to know God has great plans for us!? 

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” -Joshua 1:9

So glad that God is with us always and we are never alone no matter what we go through! 

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. -Isaiah 41:10 

Don't let the trials of this world get you down or stop you. God will strengthen us! 

No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. -1 Corinthians 10:13 

Nothing we have or are going through is something someone else has not or is not going through or overcome. Reach out to God and others for support so that you can overcome too!

I can do all things through him who strengthens me. -Philippians 4:13 

We just have to FOLLOW HIM! Love it!

8 Scriptures To Remind You that You are Beautiful!

Blessings loves!

Sometimes with the noise and many opinions of the world, we forget that God created us and that he loves us more than we can imagine! Here are some scriptures to remember when you have forgotten your self worth!





For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. -John 3:16

So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. -Genesis 1:27


You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you. -Song of Solomon 4:7

But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows. -Luke 12:7

The Spirit of God has made me, And the breath of the Almighty gives me life. -Job 33:4

Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? -1 Corinthians 3:16

But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. -1 Peter 2:9

For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb I will praise You, for I am fearfully andwonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. -Psalm 139:13-15
