Being Good to Yourself

Over the years I have gotten better at being good to myself. This involves giving myself more of what I need (God, more prayer time, getting the rest I need, more fellowship, etc.) and letting go of the people, places or things that hinder my spiritual growth.

Giving to oneself is the first step of giving to others. How can I pour into someone else’s cup if my cup is empty. 

Today I invite you (and if you need it, I give you permission) to fill your cup with what you need. By doing this, you will be able to share what’s in your cup with others.

Blessing & Peace,                      Barbara J Couch, MDiv.


Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff of the Natural

The Word of God says in 2 Corinthians 4:17-18 (AMP)
“For our momentary, light distress [this passing trouble] is producing for us an eternal weight of glory [a fullness] beyond all measure [surpassing all comparisons, a transcendent splendor and an endless blessedness]! 18 So we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are unseen; for the things which are visible are temporal [just brief and fleeting], but the things which are invisible are everlasting and imperishable.”

Looking to the natural will NEVER tell the victory a Christian has in Christ Jesus. Glory!!!
