Thankfulness- its an easy weapon to use against the enemy, but it takes practice and discipline. Make a choice today to choose to be thankful. Once you do, it will transform your perspective to see all the good gifts God has given you. Your eyes will be opened to see the presence of God that’s already with you as a believer in Jesus Christ.
As believers, we know who God is. We know God is love, good, and kind. We hear it at church every Sunday. We are reminded during the difficult seasons by our friends. If we grew up in the church, we heard is a lot as a kid. But has this knowledge of God’s goodness transferred from our head to our heart?

As women, we tear ourselves apart on a daily basis. To fight the lies of insecurity, comparison, and jealousy, we need to know how God defines beauty and make a choice to believe the truth. Beauty is not about elaborate hairstyles and expensive clothing, but rather about the heart- a heart that is being transformed by the Spirit of God.
Have you ever been misunderstood? My assumption is yes. Of course. If you have had any contact with another human in the past 48 hours, most likely you have been misunderstood. We live in a world where people will misunderstand us- It’s inevitable. If that’s the case, then what are we to do? How can we handle these encounters with grace?
