Question.

How are we in November already? Wasn’t it summer yesterday? *insert inquisitive emoji here**

Time is seriously flying by and before you know it we’ll be bidding adieu to 2016 and welcoming 2017.

Earlier this year, I made the decision to go back to basics in more ways than one. One of the ways is to be firmly rooted in my Christian faith, to not only talk about it but to be about it.

I’ve been spending more time creating an environment that feeds my faith by surrounding myself with goodness, doing so has had such a positive impact on the way I approach certain situations.

One of the ways I build a faith filled environment is by reading devotionals, which is the segue to today’s post. camel coat

If you don’t already have the Bible app on your phone and you’re a Christian ( shame on you) LOL I kid ( maybe).

All jokes aside, I’m old school and I actually enjoy reading my Bible, but I do like the Bible app for a number of reasons!

For one, it offers wonderful devotional plans that can be read daily, and it’s especially great for us millennials who are constantly on the go.

As mentioned the Bible app offers a ton of great devotionals, I recently started one by Lisa Bevere called Without Rival and will be sharing an excerpt with you below, but before I do I want to encourage you to download the Bible app, even if you don’t read the/your/a Bible regularly, download it for the plans.

If you’ve ever dealt with rivalry, rivals, lack of contentment or anything along those lines, which we’ve all had, this plan is for you.

Below is a quote from the devotional that rang true to me.

without rival by lisa bevere

“… what if you discovered that the life you have always wanted was outside the realm of competition? What if you learned you did not have to lose to opt out of the game? What if you discovered you couldn’t lose? What if you could not only think outside the box but also choose to live outside of it”.

Often times we limit ourselves to just go with the flow and never really tap into our full potential, I’m guilty of it too. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve talked myself out of doing certain things out of fear. It is important to know that we were all created with God given purpose and if you’re tapping into the talent that God has assigned to you, believe me that no devil in hell can stop you.

The talent you’ve been given was certainly not meant to be kept for yourself, what good would that be?

With that being said, there are approximately 8 weeks left in 2016, I urge you to tap into those talents and finish the year strong!

So tell me are you a fan of the Bible app? If so, what are some of your favorite devotional plans.

Drop ’em below!

Until next time.

“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace”

-1 Peter 4:10

    I’m old school as well and prefer to turn the pages on my Bible. I don’t have the Bible app on my phone but I have it on my iPad. I should probably download it on my phone as well! Love devotionals! You look great, love basic wardrobe pieces.
