God gave the growth {1Cor 3:6}
//
This week marks more than 600 days of living in Balmain (absolute #blessing), and today marks only 50 days until I leave it! (#sadface) Super thankful for all the amazing ways God has provided growth through this season!!! Love this verse from #1Corinthians, “I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth.”
We can plant ourselves, pressing into God & His purposes; He uses others to pour into our lives, building up what has been rooted in Him; but none of the growth is achieved by anyone but God alone👌💜
Fully blessed to have been built up in sharing life with my amazeful housemates, @_cocorosie @emmafagan1 @clairerachel @athenagracee and my wonderful fam at @citylightbalmain, #bMCGoat and beyond! 🌈🌻 #Praise #Jesus🙏

Wild flowers {from Jesus’ love in amazeful friends}
//
“Has anyone by fussing in front of the mirror ever gotten taller by so much as an inch? All this time and money wasted on fashion—do you think it makes that much difference? Instead of looking at the fashions, walk out into the fields and look at the wildflowers. They never primp or shop, but have you ever seen color and design quite like it? The ten best-dressed men and women in the country look shabby alongside them.

If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers—most of which are never even seen—don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving.” #‭Matthew‬ ‭6‬:‭27-31 #beyourself #Godhasgivenmuch #lovedbyChrist #savedbygrace

The love of The Lord shines over ALL💜
//
As we come to Him with our brokenness or our lonely heartache, He comforts. He is a good and loving father, who so desires to protect and strengthen His daughters and sons. His grace and love are more than enough.
-
Women, God sees each of you as beautiful.
The world’s definitions of beauty are not His own. No one can define who you are except your maker. He has made you lovely and perfect in His sight.
-
In Christ we no longer carry ANY shame.
//
“He will strengthen you to the end, so that you will be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful; you were called by Him into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.” #1Corinthians‬ ‭1‬:‭8-9‬ #God #Jesus #love #bible #crownedwithchristsglory

Satisfied & unafraid //
“Your life should be free from the love of money. Be satisfied with what you have, for He Himself has said, I will never leave you or forsake you. Therefore, we may boldly say: The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” #Hebrews‬ ‭13‬:‭5-6‬ #God #Jesus #myhelp #satisfaction #unafraid #unilife //

Lifelong gift vs. short-term appetite //
“Work at getting along with each other and with God. Otherwise you’ll never get so much as a glimpse of God. Make sure no one gets left out of God’s generosity. Keep a sharp eye out for weeds of bitter discontent. A thistle or two gone to seed can ruin a whole garden in no time. Watch out for the Esau syndrome: trading away God’s lifelong gift in order to satisfy a short-term appetite. You well know how Esau later regretted that impulsive act and wanted God’s blessing—but by then it was too late, tears or no tears.” #Hebrews‬ ‭12‬:‭14-17‬ #brothersandsisters #love #God #loveothers #pursuepeace #Jesus #bible #youversion

Jesus said, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence.’ This is the most important, the first on any list.

When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze." #‭Isaiah‬ ‭43‬:‭1-2‬ #redeemed #Jesus #Immanuel #God #Godwithus #stronghold #protector #love
