Our remaining two sessions at The Cove focused on the same message. We are God's beloved and we shouldn't forget it.
Things to focus on in our daily lives:
Constantly examine your heart and motives
Point out evidence of grace in people, not just the outwardly visible things.
Remember to seek out God's approval, not mans
Don't focus on your inabilities, focus on the talents that God has given you
A few verses to focus on:
Psalm 34:5 "Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame."
Proverbs 31:30 "Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised."
Psalm 37:4 "Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart."
Ephesians 2:10 "For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."
Psalm 139:14 "I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well."
It was an amazing trip and I can't wait until next year!
Also if you havent seen it, please watch this video. I'll admit I cried the first time I saw it. It's something every girl/woman needs to see and believe. They showed it while we were on our retreat and also my Bible study leader showed it in class last night.
Remember: YOU ARE AWESOME
