WHOA what an incredible last few weeks for all of us! I was praying to God telling Him how I was so sorry for not being all that I can be through Him and He gave me such a sweet response. I was beating myself up for not being in His presence and His word enough recently; I was seriously overwhelmed with feelings of such unworthiness. My heart was aching and I just cried asking the Lord to forgive me and needing Him to know I really was trying to be more like Him. God came to my rescue! The scripture below was His sweet response for me and for all of us!

"All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure." -Ephesians 1:3-5

Are there any WHOAwomen out there today that feel unworthy? Or are there any of you that feel like you are not at your best? I can really understand. This scripture just really spoke to my heart. What resonated first was that God sees no fault in us! WHOA! The enemy tries his best to make us feel shame and unworthy but the word says right here that, “He chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes.” Right there, I said, “Thank YOU God for loving us so much that you don't even see our faults!”

My challenge this week is for all of us to know that God is not sitting there counting all of our faults! Let's not beat ourselves up but let us press on to be the women God created us to be - His daughters whom He loves so much!

Make it a WHOA week! I love you.
