Wherever You Go, Sprinkle Love – Words of Wisdom #10

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 NIV (New International Version)
4
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

8 Love never fails. …

If you’ve ever wondered what true love is, then this scripture sums it up completely. God is love, and He showed us how much He loves us when He sent His only Son to die for us and give us eternal life, so long as we confess with our mouth that He is God and believe in our hearts that He died for us and rose 3 days later. (Romans 10:9)

As followers of Jesus Christ, it is important that we continue to be evangelists for God by spreading His love. There are many different ways to spread God’s love to others. Whether you do something for a specific person, or a simple act towards a complete stranger, spreading the love of God is always a blessing that we should act upon in our everyday lives.

Here are a few simple ways to spread the Love of God:

  • Be proactive in loving like God — If you ever have trouble with this one, please write down the scripture at the top of this post. We are told to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. (Leviticus 19:18)
  • Do simple acts of kindness — The Love of God can be shown in many ways. Sometimes, all it takes is a little kindness.
  • Learn to forgive others — Forgiveness does not have to be for the other person. Nor does the person who hurt you have to remain in your life. When we forgive, we are making sure that we are right with God and that we maintain a spirit of love and a pure heart.
  • Be a cheerful giver — This one sort of speaks for itself. The Bible says that to be a cheerful giver, we must “sow bountifully” if we want to “receive bountifully.” In other words, we need to be willing to give freely and without hesitation in order for God to bless us abundantly. (2 Corinthians 9:6-7)
  • Pray for people — This can be tough, sometimes. Particularly when it comes to praying for your enemies. But the Bible says to love your neighbors and your enemies. (Matthew 5:43-48) Sometimes praying for people means asking God to help someone that you hold close to your heart (family, friends, etc.) Other times, it can mean that you are asking God to teach us how to forgive, and to help our enemies to see His glory.

A poem to women and girls around the world: Happy International Women’s Day ♡

March 8th is also known as International Women’s Day: a day to acknowledge women and girls, God’s creations, as well as their contributions, progress, advances, and value in today’s world as we know it. Although every day is International Women’s Day, this is yet another opportunity for us to come together and celebrate each other, just as we are, in love.


Of course, I had to slide some Bible scriptures in here. It’s always nice to hear some words of wisdom. Here are a few empowering Bible Verses about women and their strength in the Lord. I hope you enjoy! ❤

Proverbs 31:26
She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.

Luke 1:45
"Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!”

1 Corinthians 11: 11-12
Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man, nor is man independent of woman. For as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God.

1 Corinthians 15:10
But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them—yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me.

Last but not least is the poem that I wrote today for (and to) women and girls around the world to read with loving and hopeful hearts. I absolutely LOVE poetry, so it’s always exciting when God gives me a new idea to write something new. All Rights Reserved.

Some may think we aren't strong enough
That we must be stout to sit at the front end
But that's far from the big picture, you see
What they may break, we can mend

For although we might not have muscles
That can strike the hardest of steel
We do have the mentality and grace
To love, to nurture, and to heal

Love that's true, love that's real
Love that's in a home cooked meal
A hug and a kiss to seal
Love that no one can conceal

And, yes, we are feminine
But that doesn't mean we're weak
We come in many shapes and forms
And even when we're silent, we speak

Sure, we are different;
Me and you aren't the same
Nor our backgrounds, hometowns, and kin
Nor our names or our frames
But no need to be disdained

Let's come together
Celebrate each other
Love one another
As we would a sister or brother

For, although we’re not the same
At the end of the day
No one can take away our love
Because love always wins
And we’re all sisters beneath the skin

Thank you all so much for reading! Please take this time to share your gratitude to all of the wonderful, strong, and powerful women in your lives who are always there; every step of the way. I definitely thank God for the woman of God that He’s put in the place to raise me with Him. And you see, that’s what this day is about–appreciating the woman who have treated us with kindness and passed their wisdom from the Lord to the next generation.

We redid Peace’s tank..and he loves it! | Betta fish tank decor

Happy Happy Tuesday, everyone! I hope you all are doing fantastic! ✨

So, as you know, I got my new Betta fish, Peace. He’s doing absolutely amazing, and I wanted to give you guys another update on him. If you’ve been reading my most-recent content, you probably saw our set up for Peace’s fish tank. While the castle was a very beautiful addition, we wanted to switch things up for Peace and buy him some new decor.

And, you probably guessed by now that it looks absolutely stunning! Well…I’ll just let you guys see for yourselves.

This morning, Goodmommy went to Petco to get this really cool realistic, rocky background to tape to the back of the tank, this cool pink and green glow-in-the-dark synthetic plant and a new house with Archangles (from the Bible) carved on the outside. As soon as we added all the ne decorations, Peace immediately started to check everything out. He’s so inquisitive and always wants to know what is going on.

I was somewhat surprised to see how quickly he went inside his new house, though I’m glad that he seems more energetic then ever. He already has a few favorite spots.

He was so excited that he didn’t even notice his food that we put in his tank. Thankfully, we were able to feed him after he explored everything and calmed down a bit.

Fun fact: Bettas love food, and Peace is no exception. He literally swam to the very top of the tank once we opened the lid to feed him his pellets.

It was super heartwarming to see Peace’s response to his tank. Honestly, we do spend quite a bit on him, both in time and money, but it’s all worth it. He really is such a sweetheart and I thank God for placing him into our lives. It makes me happy to see Peace happy and healthy.

And no—Peace is not spoiled.

He’s loved. ❤️🐠💙

Random Acts of Kindness – Why We Should Do Them

Ephesians 4:32 NIV (New International Version)
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

Kindness is one of the fruits of the spirit; it is a way to spread God’s everlasting love. Not only that, but showing kindness is simply a nice thing to do–it is a way to make someone’s day brighter. And today is the perfect day to talk about kindness. Why? Because it is Random Act of Kindness Day! Although I’ve already posted several posts with this subject on my blog, today is especially special.

It isn’t always the big actions that mean the most–sometimes something as small as a hug, a letter, or a compliment can make the biggest difference; bigger then we might think or imagine. Kindness can come in many forms. Not to mention that it’s good for our health (it’s good for our immune system, good for our heart, and it can reduce anxiety and depression.) It feels great to be kind!

Here is a list of some of my past posts pertaining to the subject of kindness. Enjoy!

Kindness is selfless, understanding, and loving. Not only should we practice being kind to those who we call our allies (family, friends, etc.) but we should even be kind to our enemies. The Bible says that if we forgive others for their wrongdoings our Heavenly Father will forgive us. If we don’t forgive others, then we aren’t forgiven by God. (Matthew 6:14-15) And believe it or not, forgiveness is a form of kindness.

Besides, God shows us kindness every second of every day. Why shouldn’t we follow in His footsteps and do the same for others as God is always doing for us?

Have a beautiful and blessed day, everyone! ✨

Giving Thanks —Why Should We Do So? (Reblog)

Note: This is a reblog that I wanted to share with you all, because it is National Thank You Note Day. Enjoy!

Christmas Day has passed for the year, and it’s likely that you’ve received many blessings. Like what, you may ask? Well, maybe you got to spend time with your family for the first time in a long time, or your parents got you something that you’ve really wanted. As saved Christians, we have eternal life, a blessing due to Jesus Christ’s sacrifice (on the cross.)

All of these are examples of the things in life that deserve some gratitude. Some examples are big and others are small. But, why do exactly do we need to say, “Thank You?”

First of all, there’s always something to be thankful for. Even in the lowest of lows, as well as the highest of highs. Being thankful for the things that you do have, including another day alive, is showing appreciation for the little and big things in life. 

As well, saying thank you to a person, especially if they’ve did something for us that they didn’t have to, can make them feel special and appreciated. Even if they aren’t thinking about recognition, a short, sweet, and meaningful “Thank You!” never hurts anyone! 

Giving thanks to God is even more important. You may be wondering why, so I will explain. A lot of times, we tend to focus on the few things that we don’t have rather than thanking Him for all of the amazing things that He has blessed us with, and we do have!

Gratitude and showing your thankfulness for the elements in our life, big or small, prevents us from becoming self-centered or thinking too highly of ourselves. Being thankful allows us to humble ourselves, and recognize how God, as well as other people that He has placed in our lives, have helped us become who we are today. 

To sum up, being thankful does the following:

  • It makes deserving people feel appreciated.
  • It gives God all the Glory!
  • It allows us to think about what we have rather than what we want or don’t have.
  • It prevents cockiness, and allows us to humble ourselves.

So, after you finish reading this, before you do anything else, make sure that you tell someone you love the words, “Thank you!” You don’t have to say what for. Maybe this person makes you laugh and cheers you up while your sad, has stayed by your side through it all, or did something else kind today. 

Either way, I hope you will feel happy when you do! Gratitude is rewarding in so many ways! 

Have an amazing day, everyone! 💖

Psalm 69:30 NIV – I will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving.

As most, if not all of us know, Thanksgiving is right around the corner–literally in less than a week. It’s at this time of year where we are prepping food, decorations, and our lists of things we are thankful for for the holiday right before Christmas. But why do we need to give thanks?
