Politics + Social Media = Love {and a BOOK GIVEAWAY!}

Have you been struggling with all the negativity in social media around politics?

It literally makes me feel every possible emotion within seconds! Angry, mad, sad, happy, excited, hopefully, discouraged, disgusted … basically crazy.

The other week after the women’s march the very next morning I woke up asking how can I make a difference? My heart’s desire is to be like Jesus and sincerely love all people through compassion. But how do I honestly live this out each day with so much pain in the world, I questioned? Before I opened my bible I asked God to show me what to do and this is the scripture that spoke to my soul.

“The end of all things is near. Therefore be clear minded and self controlled so that you can pray. Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.” 1 Peter 4:7-8

I thought, in order for me to be clear minded I must not fill my mind with negativity. And to be self controlled I must not remain in situations that influence me to make poor decisions. To truly love others deeply I must stay connected to God through intentional prayer. So last week instead of reading social media I used that time to read God’s word and pray for ALL people.

To be honest with you this stretched me. It was hard for me not to turn to social media to find out the latest update on all the drama in the world. However, by the end of the week I realized how much peace I felt.

I felt lighter. Less stressed. More patient. Simply hopeful.

Hopeful because I know that no matter how different our opinions are in this life, God is ultimately in control. I am confident there is no need to fear because the battle is already won. Victory is on my side no matter what political party I stand for. Jesus wins! I can rest in pure love.

So when I hop back on social media, I have decided to look at it through God’s eyes … LOVE. When I feel the opposite arise in me, I will simply hit the off button and pray. It is time to live out what I believe, not by merely reading God’s word but doing God’s word. God’s word is a very clear and detailed on how I must love others and while it’s not a piece of cake to implement, I can do it!

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, 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.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Holy Spirit I pray for you to do a work in my heart so that I can make a difference. Give me strength to choose your ways over my ways. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

What Are You Hoping For?


Are you hoping this school year will be the best yet for your kids?

Are you hoping to get ahead financially?

Are you hoping you’ll get your act together and take better care of yourself?

Are you hoping for that promotion?

Every single day we are hoping, hoping, hoping. Do you agree?

Even if it’s for those little things like getting a front row parking spot at the grocery store or not having to wait in line forever at Target to make a return, we are constantly hoping.

So what are you doing with all those hopes? And better yet what do you do while waiting on them to be answered?

Do you fret, worry, and complain if they are not immediately answered? Or do you get angry, bitter or even resentful?

I came across a verse this morning that caused me to pause and do a little bit of soul-searching.

“But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.” Romans 8:25

Yikes! That one little word, patiently is what caused me to take a really big breath and reflect on all that I’ve been hoping for the past few months.

Lord knows I have been anything but patient! If anything I could replace it with controlling, obsessing and pretty much just freaking out.

Please tell me I’m not the only one that gets a little loopty loo when it comes to waiting?

All I can say is thank God for grace. No matter how I act or behave His love is the same yesterday, today and forever. Can I get an Amen for Jesus?

So what are you hoping for? What will you do if you have to wait? Will you tuck away Romans 8:25 in your heart as a reminder?

Lord, we come to you today and lay our hopes at your feet as we wait patiently and faithfully. In Jesus Name we pray~
