When I Don't Know What To Do, He Says "Be Faithful"

I was asking God what to do. How can I be a good wife to my husband? I feel like I am approaching the days where “newlywed” will no longer apply and I still feel like I am failing miserably at loving him well. How can I build a successful business? Sometimes the only thing that keeps me doing it is the fact that I know that I know it is what I am supposed to be doing. How can I be a good friend, daughter, sister, leader, disciple maker, etc. How I just be enough?

I was rambling on just like this when I heard the Lord say two words that put everything into perspective for me. With two simple words He once again calmed the raging storm inside my soul. He said, “be faithful.”

Meaning of A Love Worth Living For | Nevertheless I Live

I got to thinking last night about what I would want to share with y’all today. If you are a newer reader, on Fridays I share a series I call “Nevertheless I Live” where I share a more casual toned post that is usually more personal then my regular content. Today I want to share with you guys the meaning behind the name of the blog!

I love blogging. I started my first blog when I was 17. I had bloggish platforms before that, but at 17 I created my first real official blog. I have been blogging in some capacity ever since. I started dreaming of having a full time blog before I ever learned that you could actually make blogging your full time job. For years I would brainstorm content ideas and themes and focuses for my someday blog.

ALWLF Currentlys! | Nevertheless I Live

Hey y’all!! Happy Friday! I want to start doing more Nevertheless I Live posts which come from Galatians 2:20 which says “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” Nevertheless I live is just me sharing my life and whats happening over here. Sometime i have deep things to share like the post where I talk about living a life free from shame. Other times…like today I am just going to talk about general things. I think today is a great day for an update post! I thought I’d tell y’all what I am currently working on here behind the scenes of A Love Worth Living For! Here we go!

& They Felt No Shame | Nevertheless I Live

Genesis 2:25 and just sobbed. It says, “And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.” After reading that verse I doubt any of you are in tears. That’s okay. Let me explain what this verse did in my spirit when I read it that day. In Genesis 1 we read the creation account and we see that everything was good. Then we read where God made woman from man. Then that last verse, “They were both naked and they were not ashamed.” Spoiler alert! The next chapter of Genesis is where everything changes. Man falls. Sin enters. Shame contaminates everything. So this moment where they were both naked and they were not ashamed is powerful.
