You're Grown But So Are Your Obstacles

Boast on how God is about to bring you through everything you're going to be facing. Boast about how strong God is about to make you. Boast on the mountain tops on how much God is saturating his Spirit in you so that you may be able to live a life that shows the power and love of Christ!

I'm not going to tell you that being grown is easy. Every adult will tell you that it is a struggle. But choosing to let God make you spiritually stronger and mature your faith through your walk with Christ is doable. Expect to face challenges that will try you till all you can say is, "Jesus!" Though, unlike the famous saying, I believe that God will never let you stay comfortable in your life but instead will assist you in the battles. The Lord will never allow you to face anything without providing an exit, guidance, and strength which will ultimately make you stronger in Christ than you could've ever imagined.

Call Me Crazy: Break the Alabaster Daily

So many times, we want Christianity to be our religious status. We forget that to follow Christ is to allow him to penetrate and reconstruct every aspect of who we are.

This woman realized something that I pray to God I never forget. She realized that the alabaster jar she had (beautiful and all) was meaningless because Christ is more priceless, more precious, and beyond worthy of anything she ever owned.
