Words of Encouragement

Good morning friends! How has your week been? Have you been finding your rest in the Lord? I haven’t been doing such a great job of that honestly. I’ve had to remind myself again and again to follow my own advice. If you’re struggling like me, know that you’re not alone! If I can be praying for you in any specific way, please leave a comment or send me an email. I love you all and hope this community continues to build you up.

So, I had this week’s post all planned out, but I’ve decided to go a bit of a different route. I really want to just share scripture with y’all this week. God’s word is so holy and full of His presence. I hope you approach these verses with the desire to know Him more and to praise His name. I’d encourage you to pray before reading them that your heart would be open to the Spirit. Much love.
