Here it is and highly anticipated! I do think this is my favorite Naked Palette yet! The shades, all twelve, are so rich and true to color. My favorite shades are the shimmer options! They all have great pay off and blend amazing! If this is a palette you’ve had your eyes on, I highly suggest it. The palette retails for $54.00 and goes out of stock fast! Don’t be intimidated by the color options, you can create so many looks with the twelve colors in this palette
This morning God showed me a vision of a crown of thorns placed in the middle of this empty white space and surrounding it were many other crowns. They’re were all different shapes and sizes. They had different jewels on them. They were scattered everywhere. I felt God say that we are apart of His kingdom. We are heirs to him. We have royalty running through our veins. All we have to do is pick up our crown and claim the victory. Claim the Power of Jesus. Later on in prayer I began to see that each crown had a different word on it. Such as: joy, hope, peace, comfort, forgiveness. God is saying whatever it is you need pick up your crown and wear it. You have the victory and power.
“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39 NIV
“What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else? Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No one—for God himself has given us right standing with himself. Who then will condemn us? No one—for Christ Jesus died for us and was raised to life for us, and he is sitting in the place of honor at God’s right hand, pleading for us. Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39 NLT
“So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us? And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God’s chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture: They kill us in cold blood because they hate you. We’re sitting ducks; they pick us off one by one. None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us. I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.” Romans 8:31-39 MSG
I love these words. In all versions. There is nothing and no one that can come between you and God. You can’t separate yourself from Him because He will never leave you. You can try your hardest to push him way, but He is always there. No force from the enemy or our enemies here on earth can drive us away from Him. He is here for the long haul. He gave His all for us. Someone who gives everything and puts it all out on the line must really love us, and He does. It’s evident in these scriptures. I’ve been hearing the word evident over and over again. Howver, this is the first time I’ve put it together in this way. God’s love is evident, it is so evident. We can never doubt it. It’s there. It’s unending. It’s forgiving. I love how in different versions of this text it reads “No.” No as in don’t fear, don’t doubt, dont worry. No as in you are a victor. No as in we are concquerors, it says so in the text. No as in there’s no need to question it. No as in don’t hesitate. It also says the “overwhelming victory is ours”, not just the victory but the overwhelming victory. Meaning He has so much for us, more than we can imagine. God loves. He will never leave. And it’s those two statements that mean everything.
“Some of you will rebuild the deserted ruins of your cities. Then you will be known as a rebuilder of walls and a restorer of homes.” Isaiah 58:12
Your destiny or calling in life doesn’t have to be that of becoming a doctor, lawyer, teacher, or the titles we hear most common. There are people at work behind the scenes. In this chunk of text the Bible even says “some.” Some as in “Some of you will do this and some of you will do that.” Some as in we all have different paths. We all have different destinies. I think a lot of this scripture. “Some of you will rebuild the deserted ruins of your cities.” You can be a world changer. Being a world changer doesn’t mean you have to go out into all parts of the world, your world is where you are. My world is a small town with one red light, but I want nothing more for it than success. Your task at hand could be to shift and shape your community, to give back to your community. There’s nothing wrong with having a purpose that doesn’t require you to make this huge jump and leave everything behind. Some of us have the opportunity to rebuild and restore right where we are!
Came home from vacation to the cutest package! Super excited to have partnered with Pink Sugar for these adorable hair ties! 😍 Pink Sugar 💕
Dad comes running in my room yesterday morning and says “Macey, Macey feel this!” I am instructed to rub his arm. I am entirely confused. He then proceeded to say “You feel that? That’s royal blood running through my veins.” I loved it. Ever since I’ve been seeing waves of solid purple. God has washed poverty and hopelessness off of us, and has drenched us in His royalty. We are His heirs. I am a child of the King. Our bloodline is from the most High God. So walk in that in this new week, royalty, and in the famous words of my mother “Have a great time with Jesus.”
“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for His possession, so that you may proclaim the praises of the One who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.”
1 Peter 2:9
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 God placed in us the spirit of bravery right from the beginning when He gave His life for us. He repeatedly displayed bravery throughout His life and because we are a part of Him we have that same bravery inside of us. We are unstoppable through Him. Nothing can defeat you.
“If we are out of our mind [just unstable fanatics as some critics say], it is for God; if we are in our right mind, it is for your benefit.”2 CORINTHIANS 5:13
I love this scripture. Our pastor showed this to us Sunday night saying, “I have found the verse for Worship Life.” It could not be more accurate. “Out of my mind for Jesus.” To do this right, to do Jesus justice, we have to not care what the world thinks. Let critics be critics. But I’m going to have fun and rejoice in the Lord. Whether I look like a crazy mad man or not. Go big or go home. The crazier the better. Jump, dance, shout, sing. He loves it all. I grew up not being so free to do things for the Lord. Raising my hand in church was hard enough. Speaking out in church made my insides grow on fire and I just couldn’t get the words out. I thank God for taking me out of that stage in my life. I can see how much I’ve grown and I only want to grow more. I never want to be afraid to speak or dance for God. He deserves everything I have to give him. My best advice if you’re a little shy or just not exactly sure on what to say or do. Is to push yourself. You have to jump right out of your comfort zone. It may feel odd at first or scary even, but that effort pleases God. By being faithful to God, He will be faithful to you. He will take you from your human flesh into your spiritual flesh, where you’re able to block out everything around you and be free. Just you and Him. Push push push. You’re entering in to a new level. God is giving you the “oxygen to breath in new levels,” we spoke these words out on our prayer tour and they’re so powerful. Never be afraid. You have nothing to fear.
I attended my first class as a Worship Life College student tonight. I am on the entrepreneur track and I am learning how to start my own business. I feel so empowered and eager for more! As I always do after leaving Worship Life. I’m so blessed to have these people in my life. I can’t wait to see where this takes me. I know so many things are to come! I pray that I grow spiritually. I’ve grown so much in the past two years, now I’m ready to push myself even harder! WOOOOH PUMPED!!!!!!!
“I will sing for joy in GOD, explode in praise from deep in my soul!” Isaiah 61:10-11
Be proud of God! Live a lifestyle of worship. You don’t have to be in a worship service to give him praise. Praise him in your morning commute. Praise him while singing in the shower. Praise him when you have your headphones on listening to music on your couch. Praise and worship is a lifestyle. Can people see it in you?
