Envision Beauty…

When you look at someone, are you seeing them for who they truly are, or how you expect them to be? Prejudging is nothing new. We do it and it allows our insecurities to rise to the surface. Then comparison shows itself. Try eliminating prejudgment from your experience. Give people an opportunity to show you who they are. Look for their art and beauty. You will find it…#heart #beauty #art #purpose #energy #inspiration #encouragement #love

Restoration…

There she was, the woman caught in the act of adultery. Standing in front of her accusers, probably no more than 13 or 14 years old, wearing only a bedsheet, she knew her fate. Death by stoning. Replaying the events of the day in her mind, wondering how she could have done things differently. Finally, Jesus spoke to the riotous crowd in a firm voice, a voice of authority. The crowd of men dissipated, leaving Jesus with the young woman. He didn’t shame her further, nor did He give her a sermon on adultery. Jesus restored her…#heart #restoration #forgiveness #purpose

Comfort…

Have you seen the popular meme which reads, “The comfort zone is a wonderful place but nothing ever grows there?” Yeah, I have, too. Does reading the words make you do something new? No, me neither. Nice saying, but we grow when we are ready to grow. Discomfort can be a powerful path to growth. Maybe the meme should read, “The discomfort zone is a horrible place but everything grows from there”…#heart #growth #purpose #pain #inspiration

Action…

Worrying can cause paralysis. You fret over something to the point you can’t move; can’t make a decision. Take action. Every step forward will reduce the anxiety and fear you are experiencing. Trust in a force greater than yourself for guidance. Listen first, then act…#heart #action #fearless #inspiration #purpose #encouragement

Direction…

Are you living your life fully or merely accepting what comes your way? Drifting through life creates boredom and discontent. We are hard-wired to grow. Accept that growth is challenging, never easy, but it’s where you will find your destiny…#heart #purpose #destiny #future #growth #drive #desire

Holding On…

People who refuse to throw anything away are called hoarders. There’s even a TV show about it. Holding on to past regrets and hurts is hoarding, too. It’s just that the garbage is unseen to others. You can clear the clutter by practicing gratitude regularly. New life will be breathed into your spirit as you make room for new beginnings. Start now…#heart #beginnings #life #purpose #meaning #drive #desire
