Faith, Hope, Love
“Faith, hope, love” is painted above my mantel. We actually didn’t put it there — the previous owners of our house did! Such a good reminder.
I’ve been thinking about this verse quite a lot lately, and hope it can encourage you today too.
Devote Yourself on Pinterest!
I have an idea. Maybe it’s a lame idea that won’t work out, but I’m willing to try! I love Pinterest and I thought maybe we could have a Devotional Diva community board that all the Divas can pin to. We could share quotes and other inspiring/encouraging pictures, articles, etc. on there. I went ahead and made the board, you can check it out right here. The thing is that in order to add pins to it, you need to be invited first. 🙁 Pinterest has a messaging system now, but you can only message people that are following you as far as I can tell. So for now, I think…
When You Hit Bottom
While perusing for quotes today, I came across this one. Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom. It struck me, and I thought I’d share it with you today.
I'm Slipping, I'm Falling
Today, this verse really moved me. The minute I said, “I’m slipping, I’m falling,” your love, God, took hold and held me fast. Psalm 94:18 (MSG) Have you felt like this lately? I can say I have. In the nighttime, I tend to get more anxious. What an encouragement this is today! I also wanted to mention, there will be no new posts next week (March 1st-7th). I need to carve out time in my schedule to work on the Devotional Diva redesign, since I put up posts the week before! Regarding the redesign…if you’re on the page right now, you’ll notice the new logo and changes! I still need to…
Currently, I am attempting to become a reformed worrier. I have been working on this for awhile, because my worrying used to get really out of hand. And there are sooo many scriptures that instruct one to not worry. It is a process. I have gotten better at handling my fears and anxiety about things, but it is still something I’m striving to improve upon. Scriptures do help ease my racing thoughts, but I chose to share this quote today because it appeals to the rational side of my brain. I find that reasoning and something “making sense” in my mind helps me to accept things. “Worrying won’t stop bad…
Just a little encouragement for today! God is within her, she will not fail Psalms 46:5 →M
Every Good Gift
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. James 1:17 Well, Christmas is nearly here! There’s only one more post left in our Christmas guest post series, “The gifts God has given you.” That will go up on Tuesday. I truly hope you’ve been encouraged by the series! After that, Devotional Diva will take a holiday break until January. At this point, I’m not sure of the exact date in January we’ll be back! I wanted to take this opportunity to invite you to begin submitting your stories for 2015!…
For Unto Us
Yay! Next week begins our 1st ever Christmas guest post series! The theme of the series is “the gifts God has given you.” Christmas is a very special time, and I wanted to do something special on Devotional Diva because Jesus is the best gift of all! For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 The week will start early, kicking everything off on Monday, December 8th instead of our regularly-scheduled Tuesday — there will be other special days…
I'll Do What's Best for Me
I came across this quote online earlier…and it just had to be this Saturday’s post. It’s important to remember what you need, despite what you think others may want or need. Personally, I’m struggling with this. I want to go full-steam ahead with all of the plans I have, but physically I need to slow down. That’s what is best for me. And now I’ll do what is best for me. As we head into this busy holiday season, try not to forget what’s best for you! →M
