 Amazing! Weren’t our hearts on fire within us while He was talking to us on the road?” (Luke 24:32)

Encountering Jesus sets hearts on fire. Ready to serve, we are so excited to participate in His Kingdom here and now. Yet, everyday life has a tendency to creep back in with sneaky surety, distracting focus and slowly eating away at our zeal. We even begin to doubt our purpose and our value.

Precious daughters of the King, your purpose is found in your Heavenly Father’s presence. We all have access to Jesus and His radical life changing, hope giving, transformational presence. His presence is found within His promises and they are yours for the taking!

“He is ever present with me; at all times He goes before me. I will not live in fear or abandon my calling because He stands at my right hand. This is a good life—my heart is glad, my soul is full of joy, and my body is at rest. Who could want for more? You direct me on the path that leads to a beautiful life.  As I walk with You, the pleasures are never-ending, and I know true joy and contentment.” (Psalm 16:8-9, 11)

Sisters, rest in this: You have purpose and value inside His presence. 

Will you seek Jesus and the beautiful life-giving promises found in His word today?
