Whatever’s happening, God sees your heart, and it’s your heart He cares about. You don’t need to prepare your heart for prayer. You are a living prayer, just as you are. Loved, understood — valued and precious.
Jesus whispers, “I understand.” He slips his hand into yours. May this love note for your soul calm and soothe you, wherever this day finds you. You are safe in the arms of love.
Even flowers need watering. How much more valuable are you to our Heavenly Father?!
You are really worth taking care of. Find your spark again! Let’s help each other! I’d love to cheer you on. So, I decided to start a special series of soul care challenges for us!
That’s right. You didn’t just dream of that beautiful spark in your heart earlier this week, as you read the encouragement in my article on (in)courage “You are Worth Taking Care Of.” (Thank you for all the amazing comments so many of you have posted. So honest and powerful!)
??Get ready to put your faith into action — I will give you practical soul care tips and challenges (based on scientific research) + combined with encouragement from God’s Word (Holy Spirit’s power)
We start next Monday’s 9/17/18 kickoff to our September #soulcarechallenge!
What: Every Monday, I’ll post a soul care tip for you to do during the week. These tips will boost your mood and spark joy, based on scientific research and how God created us emotional and biologically.
During the week on Instagram and Facebook, I will also post:
- powerful Scripture to strengthen your heart
- inspiring quotes to boost your confidence to spark joy
- Facebook Live videos to give you extra encouragement
As you do a soul care tip, post photos to share with our community on social media using hashtags #soulcarechallenge #whispersofrest so we can cheer each other on!
Who is a friend who you want to encourage and say — You’re worth it!
Share this email with your friends! That’s what friends are for. We watch out for each other and say: your well-being is so important to God and to me. I’ll cheer you on, with gems that really work learned from my journey to boost my mood, spirit, & body from stress and anxiety! Science plus God’s Word, you can’t beat that!
“Look how the wild flowers grow…
And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today
and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you” Matt. 6:27, 30
