Happy Wednesday! This weeks weekly inspiration comes from Hebrews 13:8-
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.”
Sometimes, I wake up in a really good mood. Most mornings, I’m eager to be awake- so thankful for another day. Other times, I dread getting out of bed. I want a few extra hours of sleep, a day with nothing to do, and no errands to run. Although I love my job, I wake up a lot happier Fridays than Mondays and loveeee my sleep on the weekends. Needless to say- I wake up differently throughout the week. What’s calming to know about Jesus is that he’s the same Sunday-Sunday. No matter the day, year or hour- he loves and cares for us the same throughout.
It’s funny how when I was doing this weeks weekly inspiration piece I decided on this verse- not realizing that I had spoken the same thing previously, literally almost to the date a year ago. I had to laugh, because this verse is just as much true as it was then. Jesus is always there for us- even if sometimes we think that he’s not. He’s always cheering us on, always supporting us on this walk we call life & is always by our side. This week, my challenge for you is to remind someone going through a hard time that they are not alone. Maybe that looks like calling an old friend who had a long week & you had no idea! Or maybe it’s reaching out to help the new employee at work. This week, spread love by being a blessing to someone else expectantly.

Happy Wednesday! This week’s weekly inspiration comes from Ruth 2:11-
“Boaz replied, “I’ve been told all about what you have done for your mother-in-law since the death of your husband- how you left your father and mother and your homeland and came to live with a people you did not know before.”
The book of Ruth is a book in the bible that is very dear to me for so many reasons. I love Ruth not only for who she was as a woman but also for the many lessons that she can teach men and women alike. Although this verse might not be substantial to some, it has such an important message: you never know who is watching you from afar. You literally have no idea who is waiting around, waiting for the perfect moment to bless you.
Ruth could’ve decided not to go with her mother-in-law and stay where she could’ve possibly felt more comfortable. She could’ve been bitter about no longer having a husband and she could’ve been resentful. Instead of being any of this, Ruth decided to stick near her mother-in-law and work. She handled her time of waiting gracefully. This is something that has been in my mind for a little while now- waiting patiently. Whether you’re waiting for that new job you’ve been praying for, that new car you’ve been eying for a while now- or even simply waiting for a phone call that hopefully ends with good news. Remember that in your waiting period- your next blessing could be coming sooner than you think.

Happy Wednesday! This weeks weekly inspiration comes from Psalm 4:8-
“In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.”
So many Pastors recently have been talking about one thing: rest. Resting in todays’ society is so so hard ya’ll! There’s always so much to do. Resting for me was for sure when I took a blog-cation (more about that here), but for others, it doesn’t have to be something so drastic. Resting for some can mean checking you emails a day late- or putting your phone down early one night. Resting for others can mean something more drastic, such as taking a week off of work to do absolutely nothing- or even traveling somewhere alone.
Whatever resting means to you, my challenge for you this week is to rest! Remember that resting does not mean slacking or missing out on anything, resting only means preparing for something great!

Happy Wednesday! This weeks weekly inspiration comes from Psalm 34:19-
“The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all;”
Life can seem so hectic sometimes! Some weeks- I barely know how I have time to sleep, let alone cook full meals everyday. I’ve been convinced more than once in my lifetime that 24 hours in a day sometimes isn’t enough..and I’ve come to accept that too (LOL!). 24 hours especially can seem like not enough time when things aren’t going your way. During bad days- the hours seem worse and it feels like time is not in your favor. It’s during these times that we have to remember that God always turns everything to good!
During bad (or less happy) times, it’s always important to remind ourselves that difficult circumstances are meant to make us stronger! There’s always a lesson in the midst of a problem and always a learning opportunity. This week, my challenge for you is to try to look a tough situation in a different way! Try to find the good in the bad, remembering that it’s always in there (sometimes deep, ha!) somewhere.

Happy Wednesday! This weeks weekly inspiration comes from Matthew 5:16-
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.”
I’ve always been amused by babies and how quickly they learn! Babies go from crawling to walking in the blink of an eye. Toddlers often mock their parents, repeating both words and actions that they see repeatedly. It has even been said that it’ easier to teach a young child multiple languages than an adult. Whether this is true or not, the fact remains the same that people are easily influenced. This is why it’s always so important to make sure you are trying your best to be a good example to others, or, as my mom would say, “Let your light shine bright”.
Matthew 5:16 reminds us that even when we are not solely paying attention to our own actions, someone always is. Most people’s admirers are from afar- watching and hoping to learn from others in silence. This verse reminds us to try a little harder on a regular basis to be an example of how much God loves each and every one of us! This week, my challenge for you is to try to be more of an example to your peers. This could be done by offering a little more help to a coworker at work, or even calling an old friend just to see how their doing. Whatever it is, just remember that no good deed never goes unnoticed.
