You are made holy

You might’ve had the embarrassing experience of finding a massive zit on your nose or forehead, the morning of a massively important event? (I totally have.)

Maybe you could let your pimples remind you of the reality that Jesus died and rose again, ‘to present [us] to Himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish.’ He died so that we would be ‘holy and without fault.’ (Ephesians 5:27 –

Pimples will pass. (Eventually.)
God’s love for you never, ever will.


You are noticed

Not long after Mary conceives Jesus by the Holy Spirit’s power, she sings in Luke 1:46-48 (

She was a nobody.
A random teenage girl.
And yet she had the full attention of Almighty God.

You might feel that no one takes notice of you. People don’t seem to see your efforts, gifts, achievements or acts of kindness. You’re ignored. Instead of giving in to self-pity – which is such a win for the enemy – why not walk through today, head held high, knowing that Jesus, your King and Friend, takes notice of you, every moment.



One of my closest friends is marrying a ‘Priest-in-charge’ in the Welsh church. This means that she’ll be married by the Archbishop, and mingles with the Archbishop of Canterbury, celebrities and royalty at the Queen’s garden party!

How would you feel about receiving a similar invitation and mixing with royalty?!

Mull over 1 Peter 2:9-10 (

You are chosen, God’s special property, one of His people set apart as belonging to Him. You are royalty but in the unique position of also being able to communicate directly with Him as one of the Priesthood.

How will you live out this privileged position?



I’ve been singing an awesome song at the top of my voice recently and had it playing repeatedly at home- Hillsong’s “Who you say I am” has the refrain ‘I am a child of God’ and sings of the Father’s love and provision for us.

Look up 1 John 3:1-3 (

These words are incredibly powerful.
John says “See what great love the Father has lavished on us….”

He calls us to see, to actively look!
I love the word ‘lavish’ because it’s a reminder of how extravagant, extra-ordinary THIS Love is!
So much so, that we gain a new title!
