Never Gives Up!

I cried when I watched this video and I just had to share it with you. Everyone has a unique voice, a dream worth living out, a gift worth giving to the world around them. You may know that about yourself but feel like you are standing alone. Or maybe you’ve just lost hope and have given up all together. The truth is that you are not alone and there is someone who hasn’t given up on you. You have a heavenly father who is cheering you on. He isn’t sitting behind the judge’s table waiting for your next mistake – He knows your name, your story, your hurts and your dreams. He made you, all of you, so know this:

success or failure, his love NEVER gives up.

I feel like I’m writing to myself more than anyone else.  I need this truth today and will need it again tomorrow.

What about you, do you ever feel like someone who has been given up on? Or is there anyone in your life who you have stopped believing in?

New Beginning

It’s early Monday morning, one of my favorite times of the week. Everything feels new, but there is a dark side to this new beginning. It’s so easy for me to begin letting the things that I do define who I am. On the days this week that I create or do something that I feel is meaningful, I will feel great about myself. On the days that I struggle and don’t produce much, I will not.

I’m so excited about a new chance to dream and work, a chance to create and plan, but there is the bold truth I must start and end on this week…Nothing we accomplish, nothing someone says, nothing we achieve will define who we are. Love defines me this week, and that same love defines you. Whether you have a week full of success and progress, or a week that feels like failure at every turn, we are loved. That is the truest thing about us this week. We are free to fully go for it this week knowing nothing we do will change that love.

“Nothing can separate us from God’s Love”

I’m writing more to myself than anyone else, this is just so easy for me to forget. What about you, how do you prevent “doing” from defining you?
