MONDAY MORNING LOVE: Forget About Flaws

By Jackie M.   It’s Monday, and I’m starting my week with this simple prayer for you. I pray you can look at yourself and embrace who you are without feeling like you are flawed or not pretty. I want you to see your outer beauty as God’s design and that you are a daughter of Christ. No daughter of the King should feel that she is not loved or that she does not have someone to love. I know Valentine’s Day just passed, and a lot of precious single women had a hard time dealing with their reality, but let me offer you this encouragement. Remember that God has a plan for your life. That does not exclude your love life. Pray for your future now, and give the desires of your heart up to the Lord.  You are not flawed, but rather FLAWLESS and PRETTY! You do not have to compare yourself to anyone else. Love you for the way God made you and take delight in our King!  Be Encouraged. Have a Blessed …

MONDAY MORNING LOVE: Perfect Peace

By Jackie M.    I’m keeping my heart and mind on the perfect peace that is Jesus Christ this morning. After a long week, and emotional weekend, I am a little tired and hesitant about the work week before me. But I remember this verse in Isaiah to calm my spirit… “You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.” Isaiah 26:3 ESV      Tackle those anxious thoughts or any sorrow with the peace that comes with trusting in the Lord. I have to lean on this trust. I have been feeling very homesick lately, and visiting Indy this weekend really made me tearful on the way back. When we miss seeing our close family and friends every week, or sometimes everyday, it can be challenging to deal with.  For me, this is my 6th month living down South with my husband, and I truly embrace this new experience, however I am starting to get moments where I just feel a little sad. I miss seeing …

Monday Morning Love: Take It Slow

By Jackie M.    This weekend I attended a women’s day event at my church and I was reminded of one very important thing. To take the quiet time with the Lord that I so need every day. I had a busy weekend with a lot of running around , following a long work week. Now it starts over again, but my attitude will be different. I know my work week is going to be long and busy so I want to remind you and myself to take it slow and make the opportunity to just sit down in a quiet place with the Lord. A five minute prayer can make all the difference throughout your day. I like to stop during my lunch break and read a Bible verse while saying a quick prayer. It can be so crazy at work and so fast paced, then with traffic and coming home I can feel like my day went by without me taking a moment to myself. Let’s challenge ourselves to do that more this week. …

Monday Morning Love: Beautifully Made

   By Jackie M. Every Monday morning, I will share a quick word of encouragement for your week ahead. Today I want you to look at yourself as beautiful from the inside out because you are beautifully made! Many women struggle with insecurities related to their appearance, and I am no exception. Don’t believe the hype, that’s flooded on television screens and magazine covers, of what a “beautiful women” should look like, because most of those images are retouched and completely edited from the original. It’s ok to be different because God made you the way you are. Your skin, hair, and body…everything was delicately fashioned by the hands of God and it should be embraced as such… delicately. Let’s treat our bodies with care, and of course our skin and hair are included. I’m very much a healthy hair advocate, so every week I will share more tips with you about my natural hair journey! Stay beautiful ladies. CW
