The verse I’ll be going over is found in Hebrews, one of my favorites books. The verses are Hebrews 2:1-4 (NIV):

We must pay more careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away. For if the message spoken by angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment, how shall we escape if we ignore such a great salvation? This salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, was confirmed to us by those who heard him. God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.

Starting out with the first verse, it tells us that we need to be careful and be alert and listen so that we don’t drift away from Christ. Now, skipping down a verse to verse 3, The salvation being talked about sin’t like we’re being saved – bailed out – temporarily, but the kind of salvation of where we’re saved to the fullest extent – we are bailed out in full; all our debts are paid, we are saved! This salvation Christ offers us is because of his unconditional love for us. Yes, us. Stinky, smelly, sin-ridden us, but that’s all washed away when we truly believe that when Christ died he washed all that down the drain – he washed it all away, in which, he did!

Going back to verse 2, it talks about us; flesh, how if a message (ultimately given by God) spoken by the angels above was a binding; taunt, message, sealing our fate (if you will). Because of the price we would’ve paid for our sinful actions – the punishment it deserved – there’d be no hope for us. It’d be how our sin; flesh; human nature, would have over ruled us -just  like it is for people now-a-days who don’t believe in Christ’s sacrifice, they are distracted. For us, it’s only through God’s unconditional grace and love that we have been saved.

In verse 4, the last verse, we can just see miracles happening! How God is showing his love and power; His agape love. Though his word we learn. Through His wonders, we learn and come to a halt with life in awe. Through his signs, we can see and discover more. And when we obey and stay steadfast in his love, we are rewarded; given gifts by the Holy Spirit, which lives in us and is actively working.

I have been gone for a long time… and I’m so sorry! but my life has been a roller coaster and I’m doing my best to keep up! I’m going to be putting up pieces of my own personal Diary for a while to share with you what I’ve learned/ what I am learning. Be blessed!

The words ‘you are worth it’ are easily said,

But not as easily me

ant.

The idea that she has the beauty of a queen is a wonderful thing,

But what does that even mean?

Looks are deceiving.

Beauty is fleeting.

And the enemy likes to cover our mirrors with rose colored glass

That doesn’t allow us to look past our past!

The weight in our hearts is heavier than the weight on our bodies,

Due to the fact that this weight is suffocating.

We cut and starve ourselves

Legislating a government within ourselves that is officially degrading

And horribly perpetrating.

If only she could see past the rose colored glass

And feel the love which defies all the things

That won’t last…

Sorry I have not posted anything in a while! Been super busy and haven’t had much time to write… but I have constantly been keeping up my diary and decided to share a few things from it that I think you might enjoy (: Just some of my thoughts from early in the mornings.

Mar. 29

Last night I had a talk about how girls’ focus on having the ‘perfect’ image and how it tears us apart inside. It’s a very soft topic for me, my heart aches for the girls who think that she will only be considered pretty by her outward looks.

Beauty is from the inside out. Some of the most beautiful people i know are not a size 0 or 1; their face isn’t like those photoshopped to perfection on magazine covers. Instead, they traded that size zero in the waist for a huge heart. And while their faces may not be ‘perfectly’ shaped, they are perfectly beautiful.

Why? Because they are able to glow with the undying passion for God and smile from the inside charm that sees people with the eyes of the heart, rather than head.

The biggest lie I think girls get trapped in is that they are not beautiful. But who has the right to say that when no human is actually perfect?

God can judge beauty, because He created beauty.

If we are to follow in His footsteps; then we must obtain the Lord’s scale of beauty and throw away the worlds.

 

“Charm is deceptive, and outward beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord and walks in His way is to be praised.” –Proverbs 31:30
