“Never make a permanent decision about a temporary  situation” — TD Jakes @bishopjakes #quoteoftheday
Of every man, woman and creature, Jesus is the only one that has ever chosen to be born. He is also the only one who knew that in choosing life He was ultimately choosing death.  Literally, He was born to die.  And still yet He chose you. Us. Everyone.  While surrounded by legions of angel worshippers, in such a place of beauty that we can’t even fathom, He chose to leave it all to be born in a lowly manger. He left it all so that He could become our righteousness through the death of the cross. “He was born to die” may seem like a morbid statement at first. But if you know Him, if you call Jesus your Savior, then those words not only give you reason to celebrate this Christmas season; they give you reason to live. . . . . . #kjv #womenintheword #shereadstruth #jesus #faith #christianity #soulscripts #lampandlight #bedeeplyrooted #wellwateredwomen #wordbeforeworld  #lampandlight #dailydevotion #itiswell #scripture #choices
Exodus 34:10-28, Jeremiah 31:31-34, Matthew 5:17, Hebrews 9:11-15: "Throughout biblical history, there have been whispers of this beautiful truth: something greater is coming. From the creation of the world and everything in it, to the moment Adam and Eve disobeyed God’s command in the garden, destroying every perfect relationship that existed, we’re left longing for something more—for a resolution that can never be thwarted by human insufficiencies. Throughout Scripture we see the story of a covenant-making, covenant-keeping God and His people.... The covenant and the law existed because God had given Israel a special place as His holy people, a light to the other nations (Isaiah 49:6). They were to be God’s representatives to the world, holy because He is holy (1 Peter 1:15). As mere humans, they couldn’t determine what was righteous or holy or good on their own, so God set up some precepts for them to follow. But try as they might, they could never manage to keep in step with the rhythm of righteousness God had initiated. Time and again, God’s people fell short of God’s standard and disobeyed. What’s intriguing is that the story never ends with their shortcomings. In fact, the story always continues with God re-establishing His commitment to His people.... The Father sent His own Son to establish a more perfect covenant. Whereas the former covenant was sealed with the blood of calves, goats, and rams, the new covenant is sealed with the blood of Jesus.... The same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead has given us a new birth. He sanctifies us, and His power joins us together as one functional and activated body, the Church. As the Church, we are God’s inheritance, holy and blameless, made righteous by the incredible working of the the Spirit’s power. And that same Spirit is the deposit pointing to the full consummation of the new covenant. Jesus Christ, our Righteous Mediator, will one day return for His beautiful, holy bride, the

1 Cor 15:10. The most beautiful verse that reminds us of Gods grace. Paul credits Gods grace to all of the change in his life since he was the young man known for persecuting those that believed in Christ. He knew that he had not accomplished all the change himself, but with Gods grace that brings salvation! Do we remember to give God credit in our lives? . . . . . . . . . . #godwillfightforyou  #wordsofencouragement #calledtocreate #handletteringnewbie #sounddoctrine #biblejournalling #moderncalligraphy #shereadstruth #strengthinletters #allthingsworktogether #prayerjournal #brushcalligraphy #brushlettering #scriptyscriptures #pursuewhatislovely #watercolorlettering #scribblewithus #createinspirepositivity #imacalligrafile #liveyourfaith #wordstolivebynovember #verseoftheday #imacalligrafile #thedailycalligraphy #womenintheword #letteringhislove #biblequotes #scriptureart #1cor15 #calligraphyartistagram
‘I hear a voice and He calls me redeemed, when others say I’ll never be enough. And greater is the One living inside of me, than he who is living in the world’. Where does your self-worth come from? Does it come from Jesus? You’ll always be enough for him. Don’t listen to the lies of this world. Listen to Him. 💞🎄
To the person who needs to hear this today...if God always met your expectations, He’d never have a chance to exceed them.  You see, God didn’t just bring me a sweet man, He brought me a man who understood what it was like to be raised by a single mom himself after a loss.  He knew what it was like to then have a Godly man step into his life and raise him.  God doesn’t just want to bless us with something “good enough”...the waiting and closed doors were all so these moments could happen.  God had something much bigger than our hearts could ever imagine waiting for us...something we never could have dreamed up ourselves and way beyond our expectations.  Tyler knows the deepest parts of mine and my son’s story because it’s part of his story, too. God doesn’t just meet expectations, He blows them away.  Trust it, friends...you are so loved. ❤️.

Day 1: Mary & Jesus ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *Advice for these 12 days* If you like to read, my posts will be the best option. If you don’t like to read long posts, I’ll do an explanation on my FB and IG stories. ❤️💚 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is where I felt like I should start. Today, please watch the video by clicking the link in my bio. Moms especially - be ready to be filled with awe. I was shown this video (sang by the beautiful and talented Lauran Daigle) when I was pregnant with Cameron. Something about knowing I had a little baby growing inside of me made me feel very connected to Mary. You’ll see. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *Watch video here* 😉 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I don’t know about you, but I cried. A lot. And then I watched it 10 more times and cried more. Y’all…what a privilege to be the woman that had Jesus. And to see that baby firsthand and know that’s Jesus. The One that saves us. The reason we have hope. Ahh, I love it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Please read Luke 1:26-37 today. This will give you the detailed story of Gabriel telling Mary she would give birth to Jesus. What a moment that must have been. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Be mindful today that God sent His son to be born of a virgin. This indicates that Jesus’ holiness derives from his being conceived by the Holy Spirit. Though Jesus was a genuine human being, he did not inherit a sinful nature and disposition from Adam, as all other human beings do. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Enjoy your day. ❤ . . . . . #jesusisthereason #truemeaningofchristmas #devotional #seekhimfirst #shereadstruth #morningdevotional #butfirstjesus #womenintheword #biblestudy #coffeeandjesus #lampandlight #biblestudymoments #powerofprayer #bedeeplyrooted #givemejesus #godslove #christianlife #christianmoms #momswholovejesus #momswhoneedjesus #emptywithouthim

But this is the covenant that I will make ... says the Lord : I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. - Jeremiah 31:33 'The same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead has given us a new birth ... we are God’s inheritance, holy and blameless, made righteous by the incredible working of the the Spirit’s power. ... Jesus Christ, our Righteous Mediator, will one day return ... Something greater is coming.' - Erin Rose  #shereadstruth #promises #newlife #somethingiscoming
This is a big 'what' to many... A friend of mine gave me this specific verse. I've repeated this so many times in a day, everyday. I had no child at that time. I was still praying and praying to God. I did not lose my faith - I was only beginning to feel sad and wondering why I couldn't bear a child. I am a strong believer of God's goodness. I knew in my heart, it was just a matter of time. His appointed time. + + To make the long story short, God truly made me a happy mother to my wonderful children. He took my sadness away.  Yes, the Lord answered my prayer. I only asked for one child but God gave me two! He is Sovereign and He is the only One who can open my womb. My children, are for sure miracles. Human thoughts won't be able to digest this... Only those who put their trust and faith in the Lord shall experience this. + If you're waiting for that miracle - the two red or blue lines or the word 'pregnant' in your pregnancy test kit that you've been longing to see... I want to encourage you to include this verse in your prayers. Utter this repeatedly with faith. Do not lose heart. Your miracle is now coming in the name of Jesus. + + #biblejournaling #todaysverse #verseoftheday #quiettimeforbusymama #quiettime #quiettimewithmylord #thankyoujesus #grateful #gratitude #womanoffaith #womanofgod #womenintheword #shereadstruth #christiancreatives #communityofchristiancreatives #wordbeforeworld #biblejournalingcommunity #godsword #faith #miracle
If you liked my last post, you’ll need to read my latest blog post to see why I felt a bit guilty after I posted it. . Everything that gathers the most attention here is so perfectly curated and composed... so here are a bunch of imperfectly perfect hand made/kid made Christmas tags, some of them broken, just like me. . But I’ll keep choosing to see the colour, the beauty, even in the mess. Even when it’s hard. #celebratingsmallvictories
“It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas Soon the bells will start And the thing that will make them ring Is the carol that you sing Right within your heart” . What is the carol in your heart that will make the bells ring for you this Christmas? . Our Little People break up today and couldn’t have been more excited about it being Christmas jumper day. Reality is that they are tired little things who are so ready for a break - and so are we . I love Christmas. There’s so much to look forward to in this wonderful season. Now that the Little Ones are old enough to properly understand all the going-ons, it’s another excuse to make memories. Along with trying to juggle very early starts and late finishes over at @flowerseting, it’s a crazy time of year. . With all the anticipation can come an overwhelming pressure to be “Christmas ready” especially when everyone else in these Little Squares seems to be getting their act together. I love looking through feeds of everything Christmas and am aware that for every shop window, there’s a stock room which may well look very different - including our own. So whilst I try, very often in the hustle, I’m getting everything but my heart Christmas-ready . This morning, Mr @mylondonchildhood kindly offered to do the school run when it really should’ve been my turn. I’m really grateful for this little breather in a crazy busy day to reflect on the story of the very first Christmas... . Not in a magically dressed window  or round a sparkly Christmas tree with extravagant presents  or on a beautifully set table with the most decadent Christmas dinner (with or without sprouts)  or even at an “all is calm” carol service complete with candles and a choir singing “Glory to God in the Highest”. Although the last bit did happen on the very first Christmas, just not in a calm way! . It began on a long dusty road journey that ended with a baby in manger. It awes me to think that He who’d flung stars into

"Be still and know, that the Lord is in control. Be still my soul, stand and watch as giants fall!" @hillsong⠀ .⠀ .⠀ In the busyness that Christmas can bring, we can often find ourselves in turmoil. No money, feeling alone or just challenges upon challenges. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ I remember one Christmas, a few years ago - where everything was disorientated for me. It was my very first Christmas without my family, without our routine, without my mum's cooking. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ One of the things I held onto was, the Lord is in control. While everything is moving so quick around me and even in my mind. My God is telling me to be still. He is telling us to be still. He is reminding us that He will slay all giants.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Sister friend, be still. ⠀ Be still. ⠀ Be still.⠀ He will rescue. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ If you would like prayer for anything, please send a prayer request to our DM or post below. Standing still with you, always. Nikkita xo
God instructed the prophet Hosea to marry a wife of whoredom. Her unfaithfulness to her husband is a reminder of Israel’s own unfaithfulness to God.  In today’s society, when a husband or a wife has been unfaithful, it becomes an excuse to get even and become unfaithful too. Well-meaning people even encourage abandoned better halves to find another love and just start over.  But God instead asked Hosea to redeem his wife just like how He continues to be faithful to Israel despite their disobedience.  We, too, are disobedient to Him. Instead of trusting Him, we want to take control of our lives and be the master. But despite the hardness of our hearts, He continues to be faithful as He can’t deny Himself.  God does not desire our offerings. No matter how much money we give to the church or how many outreach programs we participated in does not matter if our heart is not totally surrendered to Him. What He really wants of us is our steadfast love.  And in John 14:15, Jesus himself tells us, “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.” Our obedience to Him and his commandments is what pleases Him. 💕💕💕
Anybody for a do over? Perhaps you're looking or you have looked at how you handled situations, habits, your faith, relationship/s, your time, your interests and you want to start over. Naturally we look ahead to the new year to start over because new year = new me, right? Nothing wrong with that. On the other hand, you don't have to wait till the new year for a do over, grace abounds even in these last few days of 2018 to start over. You can start over today. Dream> Plan > Execute
This time of year we sometimes forget to breathe! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We get so wrapped up in the busyness, the excitement, the festivites, the gifts, the sales, the family, the kids, the weather, the travel, the markets, the work dos, the....... never ending list... that we forget to breathe. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've noticed for many people, they live all year round like this. They go for so long without taking a breath that they forget how to breathe. They forget to how to slow down, be in the moment, and be present. They forget how to find God in all that is surrounding them, how the rocks on the side of the street are about to burst out in praise because we've forgotten to...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ An experience I recently went through was this reintroduction to true breathing. Not just the breathing we do without thinking - but the breathing that is intentionally drinking God in, and allowing him to sustain me through HIS breath. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When we do that, everything changes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How's your breathing? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #daretoask #awakened #calledtoconnect ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #inpursuitofgod #faithingod #graceupongrace #lifelivedbeautifully #christiancreatives #communityofchristiancreatives #shereadstruth #goodnewsfeed #womenintheword #illustratedfaith #gritandvirtue #bedeeplyrooted #encouragementgallery #calledtocreate #wellwateredwomen #propelwomen #soulscripts
It takes courage to live out the desires God puts in your heart. “Our pop theology has eliminated the place for risk and insulated us with a comfort-and-security theology. This view runs counter to what is found in the Scriptures. I want to reiterate the fact that the centre of God’s will is not a safe place, but the most dangerous place in the world. God fears nothing and no one. God moves with intentionality and power. To live outside God’s will puts us in danger, but to live in His will makes us dangerous.” - Erwin McManus What's God calling you to today? Have courage, trust Him, and make the move. ✌🏼

Happy birthday @kristnoelle! 🎉🎉 — . Repost @kristnoelle #thechristianbloggers ・・・ ‘When you’re hanging on by a thread, make sure it’s the hem of His garment.’ ✨ . . Well guys, it’s my birthday today. Another trip around the sun 🌞 . To be honest, this year was one of the hardest of my life. Worse than spinal cord injury rehab...and that’s saying something 🙈 Ever since I contracted a chronic illness in 2016, my symptoms grew worse...and so many days I haven’t wanted to keep up the fight. . But through it all, I can honestly say I don’t think my faith could be as raw, real and genuine as it is without the crushing. I’ve tasted and seen that the Lord is JUST as good in the silence as He is in the signs and wonders. He’s just as kind in the valley as He is on the mountaintop. And just because the wilderness seems barren, doesn’t mean it isn’t teeming with life to the full. . When I couldn’t declare out loud that God was good anymore, He sat me down and reminded me He plans to heal whether I trust Him to or not. When I could barely breathe from the pain, I knew He was there holding my hand even if I couldn’t feel Him like I did before. . This year stretched me and pulled me and broke me down in so many ways. I’ve had to grieve the life I wish I had at this age. And I mean REALLY grieve...so I could pick myself up, dust myself off and remind myself God can redeem a thousand years in a day ❤️ . So if you’re facing anything at all, I want to encourage you. Every single step of the way, God is present. He’s always moving, always hovering over our lives working miracles we never knew we needed. God is just as FOR us when we don’t feel a thing as He is in the miraculous breakthrough. And what we don’t know is actually JUST as important as what we do know...because if there’s no mystery, there‘s no faith. . Today I’m reminded of a verse from a song I wrote that I’ve clung to for the past year and a half,
Amen! 🛑 Don’t forget to check out our latest Christian deals from the link in our 👉 BIO.’ God bless you.
#thursdaytruth “Laughter restores broken hearts. Laughter, humour and joy are an important part of life.” — Pastor @sirukwu
It’s real easy to post the high moments, the glory moments, the moments where it all looks great and it’s all glossy and likeable and shareable and totally to be celebrated. I love those moments. They’re the mountain top moments, the good times, the gold amongst the coal. ✨  But what is often unseen, unshared, unspoken is the journey to the mountain top, be it through the valleys and troughs, peaks and pits. It’s not glamorous to show the hours upon hours upon hours of work that went in to a piece that got attention. It’s not cool to show the tears and the moments of loneliness and crippling self doubt.  But my hope and prayer is that we use this platform and community to celebrate the wins and talk about the journey, the process, the good, bad and ugly, so that we all remember that we are all in it together, whether you think it, believe it, feel it or not. 💗  Standout Girl is for you. Come on in xo 👯‍♀️
‘ Some of God’s best yeses have come packaged to me as no’s I thank God for the times He didn’t give me what I asked for. Hindsight has made me grateful for divine denials’ . . I remember when I first saw this photo and it struck me how I dare try to come to God and hold on to the little I have for dear life, whilst failing to see the goodness that God has for me . . Isn’t funny how we can hold on with all our might to friends, things and people when God calls us to go oh so much higher in Him. . . God is a loving Father and when He asks us to trust Him He’s not doing so to cause us to suffer; He’s doing it because as a loving Father He knows us better than anyone else and He knows what full trust; reliance and dependence on Him will unlock in our lives. . . Sometimes it’s hard to trust God when we’ve had nothing but broken promises by those we deemed close to us, but when we look at God for who He is and not through the walls we’ve put up so no one can break our trust again, we begin to travel on a great journey with God, it takes time, it takes trust, and vulnerability but it will all be worth it. . . “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29:11‬ ‭NLT‬‬

1. Perfectionism is the killer of progress. Learn to laugh at yourself and to see all your mistakes as opportunities to improve. We cringe at our youth, only because we have grown.⠀ ⠀ 2. Maturity is not defined by one’s age, but one’s ability to identify and serve the needs of others, even if it comes at a personal cost. Yes, even adults can be selfishly immature. ⠀ ⠀ 3. There is purpose to pain. I wasn’t born with joy, hope, faith and courage. The most resilient parts of my character have been forged through fire.  I know joy and hope because I have tasted despair and sorrow.⠀ ⠀ 4. God doesn’t just zap us with Christ-like characteristics. If we pray for patience, He is bound to give us opportunities to be patient. If we pray for faith, He is bound to shake up our lives so that we learn to trust in Him alone. ⠀ ⠀ 5. Being a mature Christian doesn’t mean that you have to be serious and sad all the time. God created laughter, wine and pleasure; and calls us to receive good gifts with thanksgiving. Learn to sing, dance and laugh. It’s good for your soul!⠀ ⠀ 6. My emotions are both a weakness and a strength. It is precisely in my anxiety that I experience God’s promise of provision and peace. It is my excitable, child-like personality that helps me to see God’s goodness in all of life’s little moments. I might be an emotional rollercoaster, but my fickle nature has helped me to appreciate and savour God’s unchanging character and faithfulness to His promises (Hebrews 13:8).⠀ ⠀ 7. You don’t need to be an amazing cook or have a beautiful house to show lavish and generous hospitality.⠀ ⠀ 8. My failures and mistakes don’t define who I am. Making a mistake doesn’t make me a mistake. ⠀ ⠀ 9. There is true greatness in humility.⠀ ⠀ 10. Don’t ever look down on those who have less than you.

She planted a seed when she invited me to this lifestyle. I said no for 6 MONTHS! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I didn’t think I needed a program to follow. I didn’t think I needed my nutrition to change. I didn’t think I needed her help. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But the seed was planted. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So I watched closer and noticed that she never gave up.  She kept sharing ways her life was changing in a positive way because of the daily effort she was putting in. She had a fit fam who supported and encouraged her. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The more I watched, the more I wanted to be a part of it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3 years ago, I was that girl who was thinking over the idea and I’m so thankful that I ended up choosing to join her because I wouldn’t be where I am today. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thankful for the positive girls in my life who continue to show up and keep me inspired!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tonight I was able to squeeze in my cardio workout between getting home from the kids school, making dinner, and heading off to lead the student ministries at church. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I can only hope that that the seeds I’ve planted will come to light and you’ll see that if it’s doable for me, it’s doable for you!

If you still have a pulse , God still has a purpose. ~David Hughes
This summer I was heart-broken.  Heart-broken for something I’ve never grasped.  Something I couldn’t put words to.  I couldn’t pinpoint why I felt heart-broken.  A boy didn’t break it, and nothing groundbreaking was crushing me this past summer.  I googled broken heart in the Bible, begging God to show me why I couldn’t breathe. . Sometimes a longing can leave us shattered. The unsaid longings of our hearts can feel unmet when we aren’t giving them the space to breathe — when we clutter it up with doing doing doing.  In the un-doing we find our hearts again. . I know my heart longs for another land.  I know it’s not at home.  I know a broken heart is just  another way of saying: there’s more.  There’s more beyond this body.  There’s more beyond this world.  May our hearts never feel at home here.
That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched--this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. ~ 1 John 1:1

A year ago, this was me. And this is still me, in a sense, but I’m also different.  __ Jackson came after 40 hours of labor. This is a face of relief. Of “finally”. Of “is this actually my baby laying here on my chest?” Pregnancy was very real and hard, but at this moment I was also still processing that I had a son. I was a mother? __ “Motherhood changes you.” You hear that all the time. Along with, “I can’t imagine life with out (or before) my baby”. But it does. And I can’t.  __ I think it changes each mother differently. And anyone who tries to project their change on you is mistaken. And if you try to guess what changes will come, that’s ok, but maybe just try living in the moment and see what comes. And pray and hope you grow.  __ “The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places.” Hemmingway said these words that have continued to resonate with me throughout the change of the years. And I think the word “world” could be replaced with the word “motherhood”. Motherhood broke me down (like panic attacks had in previous years) and yet I was surrounded by a great Father who held my life (what felt like total brokenness) and has worked with me to rebuild. “When I am weak, then I am strong.” __ My “word” of the year, Sacrifice of Praise, has truly been an anthem. The sacrifice and the praise have followed me, fought for me, hemmed me in, and kept me pushing. Happy First Year of Motherhood to me. It’s ok. Go ahead, self. Celebrate you sometimes. Especially today. I will for sure get to Jackson’s 12 month pictures later today. 😊

"(God) alone quenches our thirst and satisfies our hunger pangs, sustaining us through both ordinary and extraordinary days." He is our nourisher and provider of peace. He is our Emmanuel, God with us. Quote by @kaitlinwernet  #advent2018#shereadstruth#breadoflife #provider #immanuel #godiswithus #godisgoodallthetime #scripture #christmas2018
“Visualize your highest self and then start showing up as HER”. Recently I had a conversation and was told “people look up to you”, as flattering as it is, I honestly wanted NO parts of “that” idea! If I could be honest, this year I drew back a LOT spiritually, was out here Skruggling, and my flesh was READY at all times 😊. I didn’t want others to look up to someone needing much sanctification 🤦🏾‍♀️😩, because there was no telling if you would get Jesus or these hands this year (he’s still working 🤦🏾‍♀️😂😩) but I’m coming to grips with others looking up to an imperfect woman serving a perfect savior! Not negating the growing process taking place, but shoutout to those who look up to my craziness, hype personality, thug ways, growing in sanctification and MUCH needed grace self ,with Jesus wrapped up in ALL of this! I appreciate those who find some sort of inspiration from me and this journey, Squad, I promise we haven’t even begun! ✊🏾🌎💫😌♥️💫

God has been reminding me of this verse a great deal lately. I’m holding on to this for so many areas of my life and believing that the Lord is making a way in the wilderness and rivers in every desert/dry/dead area of my life.  I pray that as God is doing a new thing, He gives us eyes to recognize what He is doing! What is your anchor verse right now?  Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing!  Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness  and streams in the wasteland. Isaiah 43:18-19
If your flesh is constantly aroused but your spirit is dying it’s not of God and it’s time to send him/her packing! Iron sharpens iron! ❤️ the person God has for you will not just speak to your body. A real woman/ man of God will not want for you to get off track ( I don’t care what nobody says) if they love God they will make sure that they’re helping you to fulfill the prophecy that God has spoken over your life they will not kill it.
He shall return in robes of white The blazing sun shall pierce the night And I will rise among the saints My gaze transfixed on Jesus’ face - Praise His name ❤️🙏🏻 Diving deeper in bible study during advent is so helpful. I am more and more in love every day.
Sorry guys, yes I’m still alive although a cold and a not so great week knocked me out for a few days! The second post in our advent series went up last night - hope you like it. I didn’t feel in any way capable of writing about faith, but that on its own was telling me something: I shouldn’t be so focused on myself, but instead fix my eyes on Jesus. The pioneer and perfecter of faith. Go to the blog now to study God’s Word with me ❤️
Advent came at just the right time this year ✨ • Moving into our home has been the biggest joy in so many ways. But it has also been full of late nights leading to exhaustion and full boxes (that somehow down unpack themselves?!) leading to stress. I'll often find myself sitting on the floor griping my hair because everything just seems like too much. • Advent has been my beautiful little pause button. It sets my perspective straight and helps me to keep Kingdom focus. This little book, with beautiful gold, filled with recipes and crafts and songs and Scripture has truly been the best gift of all. 🎁 • • • • • #darling #thatsdarling #theeverydayproject #thehappynow #livethelittlethings #bedeeplyrooted #calledtobecreative #mybeautifulmess #pursuepretty #simplejoys #seekthesimplicity #communityovercompetition #creativepreneur #thatauthenticfeeling #littlestoriesofmylife #womenintheword #lampandlight #encouragementgallery #shereadstruth #shetheroar #gritandvirtue #soulscripts #wellwateredwomen #goodnewsfeed #livefullyalive #choosejoy #sheinspiresothers
Pictured are a few Books I have read and refer back to often. I have a Morning Devotional on the Book Of Psalms by @timkellernyc That I start each day with. There’s a few books I paused on reading And a few books I have not read but are on my to read list. But there’s nothing like reading THE WORD OF GOD. I love books on PRAYER! It’s so important to cultivate a strong prayer life. So my books on prayer are mainly the one that I refer back to 😊
