I think it is fitting my 500th post on Inside Cup would be a Community Spotlight. This blog has grown largely because of everyone who has been involved. Thank you!
As always these spotlights are not in any way meant to make you feel like you need to be on the list. It is not about that. I see a lot of amazing posts every single month. These are the posts that really spoke to me.
Love Joy Balance– Grief – Anyone who has lost a loved one I believe can relate to this raw post.
(New Spotlight) Wife of a Lumberjack – Soul Saving Grace – Lovely post written by Allie! She talks about how important it is we open up to God about our sins and shame. She shares how when we give God our time He speaks to us and we learn a lot. Agreed!!!
Loved by King of kings– Where I Dwell– what a great post and caution by Ruth. She warns us to be aware of where we are dwelling. Very convicting.
My Way Home Life– Morning People – Meredith wrote a lovely post about how she adjusted to waking in the morning and shares scripture about rising early.
Fractured Faith – I’m More Of A Prayer Wimp– Very honest post on the confusion of prayer. This is relatable and if you struggle with prayer you are not alone.
Start Playing The Martyr – Having courage is important but we must make sure we are not complaining.
Create. In. Me. –The Power Of Communication– Faye wrote a beautiful and truthful post on the power of our words. Very convicting.
Jesskidding– Ice Cream Sundaes For The Soul– This post starts off light-hearted but quickly goes into something deep. And it all begins with ice cream, I love it!!
Outlets, Toilet Bowls, Knocking On Doors– powerful comparison between parents looking out for kids and how God looks out for us.
(New Spotlight) – Maid In His Image– The Speeding Ticket Pt. 2– This post shares a wonderful connection between having someone pay the cost for us, and being reminded of the truth.
(New Spotlight) – Autumnwoodwrites- Blessed – I love the truth of this post. No one is a perfect Christian and we need to be honest. Especially using a podium like this or just when we are with others we need to be open.
Comeback Pastor– The Financial Future Of The Pastor – I really like the truth and reality of this post. God can and will shut down ministries that are not focused on Him and His will.
Laughing Lea– Here Again– This is about perspective and having the love of Christ in us even when we are struggling. Very truthful and convicting post. I love her prayer at the end.
How My Church Changed My Life – Lea discusses how God led her when she did not connect to her church and how while she searched He used her where she was.
Grace Over Pain– Don’t Write Me A Tribute When I Am Gone– The conviction is real with this one!!! Efua makes an amazing point we need to be open and loving towards others now instead of later.
Following Him Beside Still Waters–Under This Smile– This poem is raw, deep, and honest! I love how Grace pushes herself to be vulnerable! ❤
I hope you find some posts that encourage and inspire you 🙂
Monthly Scripture – (NIV) Galatians 6:17, “From now on, let no one cause me trouble, for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus.”
