Jesus lives in you!❤ . To me the most powerful and inspiring thing in the world is to see other people loving Jesus. See how they talk about God's love, see them worship, stand in awe and lift their hands in prayer. It amazes me every single time! If you have Jesus in your heart, His light shines through you and through your actions. Whether you want it or not, you'll make an impression on others. They will start seeing Jesus in you. You are the one who can change their heart. Make a first step, invite someone to church, share your faith with one another and be open about what you believe in. Don't hide Jesus in your heart but share him with the whole world!!!😍🙏
More of You, less of me!🙌 . Let God be the One who has the highest priority in your life! Put your heavenly Father first and everything else will come to you! . Be less selfish and instead more loving and serve each other more!🙌 It's all about knowing and finding our identity in Christ. Fill your heart with His thoughts and words, not your own. Focus on the new you, the new creation you became in Jesus. Tell others about Jesus and share God's love!❤😍 . "He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less." John 3:30

Where your possibilities end, God's power starts!!!💪😃 . Life is tough but you have an almighty father at your side so don't give up, you are tougher! God is not finished when you are. His plans are bigger so be prepared for more to come when you think you have done all that's possible for a human!🙌 Our God is strong in our weakness, He will provide for you so that you can run a bit faster, keep it up a bit longer, be a bit wiser and stand a bit stronger in your faith! He's there for you!!! And that's a promise!😍🙏 . "Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ." Colossians 3:23‭-‬24
You are God's masterpiece!❤ Ephesians 2:10 "For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago." . Today I want to encourage you to take a step further in loving yourself (Matthew 19:19)! God loves you, He has made you the way you are with a greater purpose than you would ever expect. Use the gifts He has given you to glorify his Kingdom, be aware of His calling and the changes He has made in your life to save you! Zoom in or check my story for a close up of the amazing bible verses from the pic! You should definitely mark them in your bible if you haven't yet! Let the bible tell you who GOD thinks you are and don't listen to what other people say!🙏
Draw closer and closer to Him!🙌 . "Come close to God and He will come close to you." James 4:8 The more you search for Jesus and the closer you come to Him, the closer He will come to you! And when you find Him, all pieces will fall into place, all things will suddenly fit together! You'll not only find Him, but with Him also EVERYTHING else you were longing for!❤ are you ready to give your all to Him?😍🙏🙌
The only thing that matters is your love for Jesus!😊 . Hey you, child of God, I know you're struggling. I know this world expects so much of you, they expect you to be the best and to give your best always. But do you know what your Father says? He says that no worry or anxiety should way you down, He says that He wants to carry your burden if you let Him. He just wants to love you, WITHOUT CONDITIONS. He just wants to love you.😍❤ What matters is not how good you are at doing specific things, what matters is how you serve Jesus and how you love people! Your identity does not lie in the world but in the cross!😍🙌🙏 . "Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God." 1 John 4:7
Your life is important!!!🙌😊 . Imagine this: God CHOSE to create you, He gave your life a special purpose! He created you because He loved you even before you were born, He formed you after His image. You are SO important to Him! He knows your name and loves you with ALL HIS HEART!😍🙌 . God's creation is so rich in detail, every single thing is created beautifully and with the highest precision imaginable, leaving us astounded by the beauty of it!❤❄ . "But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light." 1 Peter 2:9
Prayer is the key if you want a change!!🙌😃 . No overthinking, no worry, no anxiety will help you to fix a problem or to change your situation. But PRAYER has POWER! Talk to your heavenly father, tell Him what's on your heart, He will listen to you, He sees your tears and knows your thoughts. You can come to Him anytime, His arms are wide open to welcome you home!❤ Have faith that your prayer can make a change. Remember that if you only had faith as small as a mustard seed - you could already move mountains!!!😍💪🙏 . "And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him." 1 John 5:14
But God decided to save us!❤☀️ . Did you realize in how many verses it says: BUT God...? We were dead in our sins, BUT God..., we were rebels against Him, BUT God... God loved us in spite of our sins, He saw something more in us and would sacrifice His own son so that we could live! Jesus took the crown of thorns so that we could have the CROWN OF LIFE! 😍🙌 Let us live a life for and with Jesus our Savior!🙌❤ . "But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!)" Ephesians 2:4‭-‬5
God wants to be a part of your dreams!!😍 . Did you ever think about that some of your dreams and deepest desires are a part of you because God has put them on your heart?😃🙌 One way to know that your dreams are from God is that they are so big that you can't accomplish them on your own!😍 So today I want to encourage you to DREAM BIG!!!!🙌 What is the dream God has put on your heart?❤🙏☀️ . "Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think." Ephesians 3:20
Empty me of me so that I can be filled with You, Lord!!!🙏 . Wanting more of Jesus and less of ourselves means: - leaving the past and the world behind us and focusing on the future and the cross, - wanting more of Jesus wisdom and becoming more like Jesus - being less selfish - loving and serving each other more 🙌 . It's all about knowing and finding our identity in Christ. Fill your heart with His thoughts and words, not your own. Focus on the new you, the new creation you became in Jesus. Tell others about Jesus and share God's love!❤😍 . "He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less." John 3:30
Let Him guide you and He will provide!🙏☀️ . There's one thing you should know: God won't give you a task you cannot handle and He won't give you a burden that's to heavy for you to carry. 🙌 He knows your limits, but He also knows that you're going to need Him to handle the big challenges in your life. Through whatever He guides you - He will provide too. He will make it work out for you! The key is: You don't have to control everything, let go and let God take over the situation, He has a plan and He will guide you through anything that comes your way!😊🙏 The bible says: "The Lord will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength. You will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring." Isaiah 58:11
They will know we're christians by OUR LOVE!🙏😊 . People are longing for love and we can give them this love because we're filled with God's amazing, unconditional, reckless love. We can love because He first loved us! YOU can make a difference in someone's life TODAY!🙌😍 . What is God's love like?❤ Paul gives us the wonderful answer: "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails." 1 Corinthians 13:4‭-‬8
How can people see Jesus in YOU?😃 . If you don't dare being the one people can see Jesus in - than who could be? 🙌 . Read this bible verse 📖: "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me." Galatians 2:20 . We learn that Christ lives in us, which means that people should be able to see Jesus in our lifestyle and actions, hear His words when we speak and see us radiating Christ! This can be quite challenging, we need to take one step at a time, if we are in Christ and let Jesus live in our hearts we have the skills and the chance to show other people how He has changed us! Don't be afraid and SHOW THEM!!😍❤
The non-christian world reads YOU, not the bible!😲🙌 . I'm thinking about this all the time: How can I have an impact on non-believers? The key is: It's yourself! Your personality! The love you give and the positivity you have, your mindset and your love for Jesus. This is what people will see! Show them what true love means, serve others, tell your friends about what Jesus did in your life and how you have changed through God's word! YOU ARE THE EVIDENCE FOR A LIVING GOD!!!❤🙏 Show others what it means to live a christian life and that miracles still happen!!!🙌 . "Live wisely among those who are not believers, and make the most of every opportunity." Colossians 4:5
He keeps me safe!🙏😌 . How wonderful to know that in what ever circumstance we are in life, we have the promise that God will keep us safe. Just stick to Him and believe that He can do ANYTHING, He can perform miracles in your life too, whether you're struggling with anxiety, loneliness, or trust issues, whether you're in a period of waiting or receiving. God is right there with you.😍🙌 Lean back, lay down and trust Him fully, He will take care of whatever is holding you back and He will make a way for you!!❤😃 . "In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord , make me dwell in safety." Psalm 4:8
Start your year right and COMMIT!!!😌🙏🙌 . Committing to something means giving something of yourself but gaining more. Let this year's resolution be to commit more to Jesus, more to serving and more to your beliefs!🙏 The bible gives us this wonderful advice: "Commit your actions to the Lord , and your plans will succeed." Proverbs 16:3 Put God first and you'll be surprised what miracles can happen!❤🙌 In what way are you committing more to Jesus this year? Share it in the comments and inspire others!😍🙏
I'm super thankful for this year and all your love, thanks for sharing your experiences, your love for Jesus and for being a part of this wonderful community! Happy new year and stay blessed!!!❤😊🙏 Praying that God shows you new opportunities, new ways to pursue your purpose and that you discover the love of Jesus Christ anew every day!❤🙌
