I've since then changed my tune, I have to "mean what I say," and you know what, he knows it. It's far from perfect, just like the rest of us, but it's definitely improved his behavior. I also mean what I say when I tell him I love him, I'm proud of him, and when I encourage him when he's working hard at something. I have to be someone Grant can trust and depend on.
God also "means what he says." Hebrews 4:12 in the Message translation says just that. "God means what he says. What he says goes. His powerful word is sharp as a surgeon's scalpel, cutting thought everything, whether doubt or defense, laying us open to listen and obey. Nothing and no one is impervious to God's Word. We can't get away from it-no mater what."
God is the same now as he has been and will be for all eternity. We can trust in Him and depend on him. He's shown His great love for us by sending His only son, Jesus, to die for our sake. God means what he says.
As for my outfit, I was pretty happy to pick up this vest at Old Navy. I missed out on the J.Crew version and never could have justified the price anyway. I thought it would be fun to pair it with my extremely versatile sweater I scored from thredUP (use link for $10 off) and this Loft skirt I thrifted a few years back. I feel like the pearls and flats really add a great finishing touch too.
