โ™ฅโ™ฅ Dissolving jealousy, envy, competition, and comparison in the body of Christ โ™ฅโ™ฅ

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Col 3:15

Ya’ll I am so ecstatic about this …my first official blog post ohhhh Kayyyy! God is so faithful and A M A Z I N G!

We are constantly bombarded with images of the hottest, latest, and greatest trends of popular culture. It’s easy to begin to compare your life to the images you see if you aren’t mindful. However friend don’t beLIEve the ILLusion most of what we see on social media and TV is designed to cause us to feel/fill a void. (YOU HAVE & ARE ENOUGH!)

I asked God what’s the solution and He answered with a very simple illustration. He showed me the word competition and said remove the word “it” (it being whatever “it” is that you desire and/or are passionate about) and add the letter L between p & e. When I did that I got the word COMPLETION. He then said L stands for love (God’s Love). See when we realize that His Love COMPLETES us we know that GOD IS ALL we truly need.

This is why the bible says seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added. The world tells us the opposite go after money, relationships, careers, cars, homes, etc. (things). But there is a place in you no person or thing can satisfy that will always be empty until you let God fill/feel you. Love God more than everything and others as yourself.

โ™ฅโ™ฅ Compet(it)ion – (it) + L (love) = CompLetion โ™ฅโ™ฅ

The enemy knows that when our focus is on being, doing, and having more than it is on Him, the one who causes us to be, do, and have…. we will spend our days living for those things. Whatever has most control of your time, energy, affection, and resources has your heart. However things, people, circumstances change and will never be enough to save us. When we put our trust in things that aren’t secure our lives will reflect that, we’ll find ourselves in cycles, stuck in existing versus living.

When we give God our time, energy, affection, and resources He begins to fill our hearts with His peace, love, and joy. Delight in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart Psalm 37:4. Meaning He will put desires in your heart and give them to you. God knows you want that business, career, position, relationship, car, etc, and guess what many times he wants you to have it too (at the right time) as long as it isn’t your god.

Be secure in God! Trusting that He has your life already planned out. Be anxious (in a rush) for nothing, pray and be thankful about everything. This allows you to experience God’s peace. When you find yourself dealing with something ask God what He wants you to learn/see. Everything you experience is preparing you for the next.

The last beautiful illustration God showed me was a puzzle. Each piece is cut, printed, and sealed by the maker. All the pieces are unique in shape, color, and size. Yet each piece is designed to fit into the puzzle to create the finished work. We all have a piece to the puzzle. Let God cut, mark, seal, and place you exactly where you fit. You are custom and handmade by the creator of ALL things โ™ฅโ™ฅโ™ฅ

Introduction {โ™ฅ}

Hi Glam Girl,

Thank you for taking the time out of your journey to visit my blog. I hope that you come across something on here that inspires you to be a light in a dark world. My name is Kristen Joi Hardy, creator of Glam Ch!c blog & boutique and co-founder of HPCD3 a Christ centered creative community/foundation. I am simply a vessel called out of darkness into God’s glorious light! I love Jesus, my husband, and serving in the kingdom. All that I am and will ever be is because of God’s grace, love, and mercy, hence the name GLAM!

What’s Glam Ch!c About?

When you hear glam you more than likely think Hollywood, luxury, extravagance. In fact the definition of the word glam is charming, attractive, and beautiful. Although this is a beauty blog the distinction is that in the kingdom we believe that beauty is inside (heart) first and then outward (appearance). Whereas the world focuses on the latest trends in fashion, makeup, and culture; the kingdom focuses on character, fruitfulness, and Christ. The bible says that we should not be conformed to this world but be transformed through the renewing of our minds(hearts). This blog is designed to be a place of renewal, refreshing, and reviving; what I like to call “beautification”.

Topic Overview….. (just to name a few that have already been pressing on my โ™ฅ topic suggestions are welcome in our contact section)

All things “beautification” LOL i’m beginning to like that word!

  • Grace & Mercy, Fruit of the Spirit (peace, love, joy, faith, meekness, kindness, faithfulness, gentleness, self control), Marriage, Leadership, Relationships
  • Prayer, The Word of God, Praise & Worship
  • Modesty, Appearance, Style/Fashion
  • Healthy (spirit, soul, body)

XOXOXO Grace Love Mercy

My First Blog Post

Be yourself; Everyone else is already taken.

โ€” Oscar Wilde.

God created each one of us in His image and likeness. We were all handmade by God for a specific purpose. As we allow God to take us through our “beautification” process we are transformed into His beautiful masterpiece. Just like a work of art our uniqueness, flaws, and blemishes make us authentic, telling the story of our process. This blog is designed to celebrate the beauty of walking in the attributes of our creator. My prayer is that you are encouraged to let God’s grace, love, and mercy shine through you also! By the way I am also a fashion & beauty lover so there will be posts/sections dedicated on here to natural GLAM as well!
