One of our energetic gymnastics students joined us at church this morning. My heart melted when he turned to me and asked, “Miss Lauren, do you wanna read about the bible with me?? What is your favorite page?” So I showed him John 3:16 and told him that meant that God loves him very very much. I’ve never seen this kid smile bigger. @hlsouthard #momentsilivefor #sweetmicah #childlikefaith #ilovesundays
“Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17, NKJV)
Do you desire to have more faith? Scripture tells us that faith can grow and increase. Notice that today’s scripture doesn’t say, “Faith comes by having heard the Word of God one time.” It says that faith comes by hearing — in the present tense. We have to hear the Word of God over and over again in order for it to take root in our hearts and transform our minds. Sure, God’s Word can transform us in an instant, but most of the time, our faith grows as we hear the Word of God again and again.
Just as a seed needs water daily to grow, your spirit needs the Word of God daily. The more you hear God’s Word, the more you know Him. The more you know Him, the more you will be able to believe Him — and that’s what faith is!
Today, why don’t you choose a few scriptures to meditate on? Write them down and carry them in your purse or wallet. Let that truth sink down into your soul. Let the truth of the Word transform you and move you forward into the abundant life God has prepared for you!
None of us are less than another. God’s grace is new each moment for everyone. #reminder #neededthat #relevant #praying #trusting
Getting Dunkins in Texas never gets less exciting. Especially when I’m with my favorite people :) @wyattmoore1 @instagramlessmelody
I love how 2,000 miles will never be too much space between how my best friend encourages me! Love you, @adesrochers670
I’m a little discouraged. I’ve never cut it this close before, but I’m still trusting God to provide. He always does! Please let me know if you’d like to support my trip to our orphanage in Haiti!
