A Baker’s Dozen (and Printables)

Pleasant words are a honeycomb,
Sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. - Proverbs 16:24

So often, my husband says things to me that I know come right from God. He knows me, they both do, and they know that the devil works overtime to keep me discouraged. So I thought I'd share some of what he says, in case you don't have someone to say it to you.  May they be like sweet treats, a baker's dozen to tempt your palate.

You need to hear it. You need to believe it. Say them out loud.

I've made printables of them, so that you can post them in places you'll see every day. Because you can't hear them often enough, you really can't.

*This world is a sweet place because you are in it.

*God is here. He's so close you can touch Him.

*You are precious, and not just to me.

*This is not in your head.

*I believe you. I believe in you.

*This resting you're doing is important work.

*You matter, more than you know.

*Please ask for help when you need it.

*Who you are and what you do are more than enough. Period.

*God made you exactly right.

*You inspire me.

*I'm not the only one who loves you.

*God is more constant and sure than whatever you're afraid of right now.
