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.



Look Into the Word of God 

The Bible is there for us to recieve revelation of God’s will but if we don’t open it and meditate on the truth within it we miss out on so much. 

I invite you to meditate on the Word of God today not because you have to or because you feel pressured but because you find love, truth, confidence, understanding, peace, grace, joy, clarity and blessings everytime you open to the Light of Scripture. 

For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope and overflow with confidence in His promises.”

          Romans 15:4(Amp)
