Has there ever been a season in your life that you wondered why you’re here? What is it exactly that God would have you do with your life? Each day brings a new challenge filled with frustration and you just can’t catch a break? I’m raising both hands here.
Well, I can’t offer you any kind of peace that life will be easy, because that wouldn’t be true. However, there is someone who can bring more peace to each day.
I’m in the middle of a Bible study and we are learning the different occasions where Jesus says I AM. There are 7 time when He states this. Are you familiar with any or all of them? I was familiar with a few but not all of these and this study was so refreshing while learning the 7 I AM statements of Jesus.
- I AM the Bread of Life
- I AM the Light of the World
- I AM the Gate
- I AM the Good Shepherd
- I AM the Resurrection and the Life
- I AM the Way and the Truth and the Life
- I AM the True Vine
I don’t know about you but these statements left me wanting and craving more. There are so many times when I start to feel unworthy, I just want to sit and dive into His presence. It allows me to rest in Him. Find peace in Him. Stop the noise. Stop the comparison. And just breath.
Have you ever had an occasion when you knew what you needed was more of Jesus? I can always tell when I haven’t been totally focused on the cross because my words, my thoughts, and my actions may not always be aligned with Gods. But, if I stop long enough to remember these I AM statements, then it really brings the focus back to God instead of me. I don’t have to have it all together. And trust me, I don’t. Neither do you.
Releasing anything you feel is holding you back in life is so powerful. I am learning to do more of this as an adult because it wasn’t until I was about 24 that I really started learning the meaning of this. Parenting isn’t easy and this is the place I started to ask God to help me the most. I long for His embrace and what the power of His love can do.
When I designed my tee company, my initial thought was that every women needs one of these. My second thought was how can I help more women to know who Jesus is? Spreading hope, love, and creating something women could wear daily as a reminder. There are so many experiences in life we walk through that allow us to know who Jesus is. Are you walking in His promises of hope He has for you?
Lately, I have often wanted to create a 30 day inspirational guide to help women in the mornings to start their day. I know for me, starting my day with some Jesus makes everything that much better! Oh yeah…who’s with me? My days often start with a great journal, my Bible, and a great cup of coffee. Leave me a comment below and let me know how your mornings start.
If you haven’t already, check us out online, through Instagram, and Facebook. While you’re there, grab a tee for you and a friend. Wearing our inspirational and motivational tees will allow you to also share hope with others. Use them as a conversation starter. Give one as a gift to a friend in need and help remind her of Whose she is.
Step into your purpose and start living the life that God created you for. *The tee I have on in the picture speaks for what God has already placed inside of you. Peace. Purpose. & Passion. You are loved!
Blessings sweet friends,
