Was there ever a moment where you felt like God was sending you a direct message through the words of another person (outside of a church service)?
I had one of those moments this morning during a heart to heart with my husband. The past few weeks have kind of all-around sucked.This morning I decided very dramatically (in bed, staring solemnly at the ceiling) that I was giving up. Luckily, my husband knows me and ignored my theatrics long enough to give me one of the best pep talks that I’ve ever had. He chronicled our entire relationship and noted how when things got this stressful, God was pushing us to a higher, better level. God has given us beauty for our ashes time and again and we’re ALWAYS better after the struggle.
I left our conversation feeling rejuvenated and dug into the scripture. John 16:33 fed my soul.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
For a reminder through the rest of this struggle, I created a few “take heart” phone wallpapers so that the message would be consistently visual each day. I’m giving away the same wallpaper that I’m using to my readers in case any of you need this reminder as well and because y’all are my people!
Simply right-click the image you want and save it. Or, press and hold and select the “download image” option! I’m #teamandroid but I hope these instructions are relevant for Iphone users!
What are some of the scriptures that get you guys through the rough spots? Share the wealth in the comment section!
With Grace + Love,
