It's so easy to run to things or people, other than Jesus, for comfort. Print these to remind yourself that our heavenly Father is indeed the God of all comfort.
When I Don't Feel Stable
It doesn't take much to get overwhelmed anymore, does it? It's time to make some trades with Jesus: He gives us a sound mind for fear, sanity for chaos, and a secure place to stand in the midst of mental and emotional earthquakes.

You are one person with many names. Some of your titles may be: mom, wife, sister, friend, daughter, cousin, aunt, CEO, niece, director, fiancee, teacher, assistant, manager, waitress, clerk, customer service rep.

For What Do I Thirst?
The Lord created us to be thirsty-- both physically and spiritually. Every day, we satisfy that thirst. How are you satisfying your spiritual thirst?

Which one will you seek?

Pride is Ugly
"God beautifies the humble with salvation." Psalm 149:4 First of all, how cool is that verb, beautify? I think that's one of my favorite words. Well, if pride is the opposite of humility, then pride must be ugly, right?

Beloved one, may I be direct with you? Don't underestimate the Lord. He is the Mighty One, and He will save. He keeps His Word.

That Rottin' Envy
Did you know that envy is rottenness to the bones? (Proverbs 14:30) Yikes. The good news is found in the other half of that verse: A sound heart is life to the body. We were not designed to live with envy, and the solution is a sound heart. What does that look like?

Scripture Memory Tools
I'm the first to admit I'm not a professional singer or music composer, but as I've worked with many children to assist Scripture memory, songs have just 'come to me.' Because they've helped others hide God's word in their hearts, I've recorded and posted them here. Hopefully they'll help one more person be built up in the truth of the Lord!
