A wonderful friend sent me this in a text as encouragement during preseason the other day. She is a dear prayer warrior and sister in Christ. I hope you find comfort in these words, as I did.
“My love for you is deeper than the deepest sea and higher than the highest heights. It is divine, lavish and beyond your wildest imagination. It penetrates to the deepest caverns in your soul. I love you like My Father loves Me. As I am the apple of His eye, so you too are the apple of My eye. Nothing in your past, present or future will ever cause you to lose My love. I rejoice over you. I take pleasure in all that you do. Walk in My love. Remain in My love. Take confidence in knowing that you will never be outside the fervent awareness of my extravagant love for YOU!”
This post is apologetically late, but I am tired, content, and sunburnt from the most lovely, refreshing day at the beach today. I truly am blessed, and as I venture forth into the unknown of this coming school year I will go with peace. God is fighting for me.
Forever grateful for God’s gracious love and sacrifice. Looking beyond the past to what He has promised us–
As an individual who becomes too much of a perfectionist when it comes to sports, this verse is applicable to my life in the high school athlete area as well as to my faith and other various categories of living.
He is doing a new thing in my life, and this life is soon to be of zero importance. He has bigger and better things in store for me. Dwelling on past mistakes does nothing except to tear your confidence, skill, self-worth, enthusiasm, and motivation down. Therefore, I put my past mistakes behind me and rise up to face and improve myself with each fresh moment. Praying for self-confidence and faith development — and He is with me every step of the way.
As a person who is prone to observing fellow humans, and one who currently interacts with an array of passive, nonchalant, and obscene strangers on an almost daily basis, I connect with the verity of these words:
Kindness is a fruit of the spirit, and I pray to show Jesus in my life through my conduct and attitude.
Cheers to giving your best efforts towards being an amicable human being, even if your daily endeavors aren’t too successful–
I am so, so blessed. In the darkest times and the most joyous He is with me without fail.
Sometimes we need to go beyond our boundaries to discover things that God has in store for us.
Life has again sucked me up into a whirlwind, and it’s about time that I sat down and reevaluated my time management and my priorities. Always remember, He is ever with us. I too often forget it. It is a comfort, honor, and, in its own way, a confession to hear this:
I want to live for Jesus not out of self-obligation but out of love for the amazing and awe-inspiring Creator. He is my rock, and He has promised me salvation. It is through this that I am saved, and I am beyond blessed to live this life on Earth with no need for fear for the future.
Have a blessed week! I hope your summers are faring well. I hope to post some full-fledged content posts soon.

Oh how marvelous and how wonderful is He. I forget it too often. The best comes from relying on His fathomless love rather than on our own limited willpower.
