afternoon inspiration...

First of all, this incredible woman. I always find her to be indescribably inspirational.

And some other various thoughts and Scriptures...

"Keep the view from the throne. If we will look at life's experiences from God's perspective and what His Word says, then we will not be deceived by Satan who is seeking to defeat us by his lies, distorting reality from God's kingdom perspective." Spiritual Warfare: The Battle for God's Glory by Jerry Rankin.

"So, being affectionately desirous of you, we were ready to share with you not only the gospel, but also our own selves, because you had become very dear to us." 1 Thessalonians 2:8

"But we urge you, brothers, to do this more and more, and to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you, so that you may live properly before outsiders and be dependent on no one." 1 Thessalonians 4:10-12

"He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it." 1 Thessalonians 5:24

Ditto to Jessica's thoughts.

And...

I love that 1 Thess. 4:10-12 passage. Why do I so often forget to live quietly, to mind my own affairs? I get so caught up in things (even seemingly good things!) that I forget to just breathe deeply and live simply.

Thanks for the reminder! Love you!
