Mother / Daughter Portrait in 10 minutes time…

I met this precious friend of mine around two years ago when we were both going through massive transitions in our lives.  It was incredible how God brought us together to meet (along with several other single mom’s at the time) to be a support for each other.

Our “anthem” at the time was this song by Mercy Me —

“Every day I wrestle with the voice that keeps telling me I’m not right…but  it’s alright.  Cause I hear a voice and He calls me Redeemed…”

A handful of women, pouring their hearts out over how they had been called “not right, worthless, lazy, selfish, whore, broken…” on and on.  The devil uses other people to say these things to us.  To get in our heads and break us down until we start to believe them as truth.  smh… but Praise the Lord, Greater is the ONE and only God inside of me than anything thrown at me by the world.  We can stand in His truth that we are made perfect by His grace…

Every day is a struggle.  Life can get so hard.  When the devil starts to drag you down, remind yourself who you belong to and what HE thinks of you.

ROMANS: 37 No, in all these things we have complete victory through him who loved us! 38 For I am certain that nothing can separate us from his love: neither death nor life, neither angels nor other heavenly rulers or powers, neither the present nor the future, 39 neither the world above nor the world below—there is nothing in all creation that will ever be able to separate us from the love of God which is ours through Christ Jesus our Lord.
