Your encouraging thought for the day:
The phrase“do not be afraid” is written 365 times in the Bible. That’s a daily reminder from God to live every day being fearless.

Hey y’all! I know that expression sounds pretty southern, but I’m really in the country/southern mood today. Not ashamed to say I’m a born and raised farm girl and country girl for life! Guess I have to switch gears from country music for a minute cause none of these songs really fit in that genre. 😀 Hey, it’s a good thing to like multiple styles – can’t get too stuck in the mud! (sorry, just had to throw that in there 😉 )
Since today is another catch-up day, I’m sharing three songs again! Live your day right with hope, courage, and the knowledge that you are LOVED!
I had day six written and ready to post… and my internet connection failed. And then I headed off to my new job to start a few mildly stressful yet fun days of training. Now I’m relaxing at the beach and have the time and resources to connect again and (hopefully) make up for the lost time. Or maybe I should say I’m holed up in an under-lit, outdated hotel room while the wind howls and blows a cold drizzle outside ( #reality ). I hope your mornings haven’t been too mundane without me. 😉
I wrote that yesterday. 😀 So this morning, I decided to get up and be productive. With my amazing sister helping me, I came up with a strategy to overcome the overwhelming feelings of life. She’s pretty great!
I figured out my power word, sentence, verse, and song. Basically, I now have a few things to read and think about that I know will always inspire me beyond just the next few seconds. I’ll probably make all that into a completely different post, but I thought I’d make a note for now… 🙂
So let’s pick up where we left off. I’m planning to post several songs a day so that y’all won’t have to miss any of the amazing ones I’ve picked out.

Here’s an encouraging thought for your day: (even though I’m sure you’ve heard it “too many” times before – hey, it’s timeless! 😉 )
~ Philippians 3:14 ~
We’re going praise and worship style with our fourth song. It’s calm compared to what a lot of this month’s music will be, but it has such a subtle underlying passion and energy that I absolutely love.

Good morning and happy Labor Day!
We all acquire a morning routine or some sort of regular habits after a while, even if your mornings always seem to be a little too hectic. I’d like for you to imagine for a moment, a kind of morning that could become your favorite while still doing the most important things. Maybe making a healthy breakfast? Going for a brisk walk/run? Just giving yourself a little more time before you rush to work?
My favorite morning routine is grab a quick and healthy breakfast, a cup of coffee, and my bible and devotional journal, proceed to my favorite spot, turn on worship music, and spend some time with Jesus.
Afterwards, I’ll do my makeup, catch up on emails, social media, blog work, etc. Then head to work.
Not sure if you’ve noticed, but I like to encourage y’all to do something like that too (though I’ve only hinted at it previously 🙂 ). Not only is it a great thing to look forward to every morning, it also starts your day in the right place! And it can take anywhere from five – ten minutes to a whole entire hour. Whatever fits into your schedule the best and how much time you want to take for it – go for it! Make time for Jesus. I’m sorry, you don’t have any excuse!
BUT… today is Labor Day! Crazy that I’m talking about this when most of us have off… 🙂 Whatever. It applies whether you’re working or not!
Take one day at a time. Don’t mentally tackle a whole week (or month!) at one time. That’s too much for a normal human being to handle and chances are, it won’t go very well. I’ve personally tested that theory too many times! Enjoy your self. Enjoy your new morning. And definitely pause in your moment of life to enjoy it too!

Hey peoples! It’s great to see you up this early in the morning – or maybe it’s night by the time you’re reading this! 😀 Today is really exciting because… it’s Mandisa!! Okay, maybe your not as excited as I am because she is my favorite singer right now. She has a great voice that moves with such passion. Every song she sings is incredibly powerful. I hope you enjoy it too! Let the truth of her words sink into every part of your being.
Maybe this song can be your inspiration as you get up and ready on this beautiful Sunday morning. Hey, why not worship all day! 🙂

Inspired by a friend and blogger, I thought it’d be a great idea to dedicate September as a month of worship music here at LoveNotes. I love listening to music at literally ALL times of the day so I’m pretty excited to share all of my favorites! Having a playlist of your favorite worship music on your phone is a great way to stay inspired and focused on Jesus all day long. And you can play it anywhere, anytime.
Let’s praise Jesus all month long (and beyond!) and set this world on fire with His love! Unless you already know someone really doesn’t like your music and you playing it all day, share it with them! It may be just what they needed that day or even right at that moment. So make sure to bless someone else!

Hey ya’ll! It’s time for the June Quote Up! post. I think we got some awesome ones in here (I mean, aren’t they every time? 😉 ). A very common theme around here is inspiration and motivation. We need it. It’s not possible to live off of your own mind’s excitement forever. That’s why I’ve scraped this collection of quotes to help you wake up, smile, and step forward with confidence every day.
Comm’on, let’s check ’em out! 🙂

Who likes to live burned out and exhausted? Yeah, I didn’t think anyone did. 😉 Maybe you always feel the need to hurry or you can never get everything done. Sound familiar? Then these tips should help you out!
This has had an amazing impact on my own life. Having an extra half hour or hour in the morning will allow you to feel like you are in control your day rather than your day controlling you.
Make sure you are still getting seven to eight hours of sleep every night. You may need to adjust a little and go to bed earlier too (It isn’t as hard as you think!).
Put away your phone or computer or whatever your mind is on, and make the time to totally chill out for ten minutes. This is a great thing to do early in your morning. Refresh you mind and inner self, and you’ll find your brain and body much more inspired, refreshed, and equipped for the great day ahead.
