Bright colors are really popular this summer. you should have at least one bright colored dress or top in your wardrobe! Taylor pulls off this bright dress with her black sunglasses and small purse.

God is faithful.

Our God is faithful. Even when we have no faith at all. He can make beauty out of ashes. He can change a heart that seems too stubborn or prideful. He will humble you, and at that moment that you realize that he IS GOD, you will appreciate his faithfulness.

Psalm 86:15 
 But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.
1 John 1:9 
 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
Deuteronomy 32:4 He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he.
Psalm 36:5-6 Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep. O LORD, you preserve both man and beast.
1 Thessalonians 5:23-24
May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is
faithful and he will do it.

Revelation 19:11
I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war.
