๐Ÿ—ฃ This is a PSA to anyone in need that YOU WERE CREATED WITH PURPOSE and nothing and no one on God's green earth can take that away from you. Your very existence was intentional so anyone that tries to thwart that, whether in a big way or a small way, is not worth your focus or your energy. Seek the will of the Father and you won't fail. You got this ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ • #createdwithpurpose #focusonyourgoals #forgetthenaysayers #dontsweatthesmallstuff #youareresilient #youarestrong #youarecalled #alreadyqualified #imagebearingwomen #weeklyinspo #personalgrowth #spiritualgrowth #faith #empoweringwomen #ambersiarah #motherdaughter #familyblog #sdbloggers #lifestylebloggers #faithbloggers #soulscripts #wellwateredwomen #like #subscribe #share #comment

I just wanna go back to the airport & take another trip to D.C. โœˆ๏ธ I miss it so much! >> for me flying is so much fun, it’s not a stressful process for it. I find it to be quite enjoyable actually. I love the feeling like I’ve been giving the gift of time to chill - either read, watch a movie, look out the round window to the beautiful sky God created, or just close my eyes while listening to music.  no matter what, I love it! ๐Ÿ’ž >> where do you currently crave to travel?? leave a comment ๐Ÿค—

๐Ÿ”ฅLosing weight during the wait๐Ÿ”ฅ  Many of us have heard The statement “Though the vision tarry wait for it” which comes from the Bible verse :  Habakkuk 2:3 : “ For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry wait for it: because it will surely come, and it will not tarry.” We must learn to wait on the Lord so that He can give us the plan on how to lose weight.

The apostle Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians that we are ambassadors for Christ, but so often our allegiance to Christ is drowned out by our allegiance to an anxious lifestyle. Often times we not only like being busy, but are addicted to it. We exchange silence for scrolling, Netflix for intimacy, coffee for sleep, and then complain when we feel exhausted. . “If anyone is in Christ, he is a NEW creation. The old has passed and behold, the new has come. All this is from God...who has entrusted to us the ministry of reconciliation. THEREFORE, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making His appeal THROUGH US. We IMPLORE you on Christ’s behalf, to be reconciled to God, and do NOT receive the grace of God in vain.” 2 Cor. 5:16-21 . . So if we are new creations, why are so many of us holding onto the dark? .  Christian, it’s time to say goodbye to your old self. The addicted self. The ashamed self. The projecting self. It’s time to let the walls come down and let the Spirit bear fruit in your life. . . “For if the salt looses its saltiness, what good is it? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet.” Matt. 5:13 . . . . “Therefore do not be anxious about your life...which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his life? Oh you of little faith! Therefore, do not be anxious...but seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness. Then all these things will be added unto you.” Matt. 6 . . “Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised.” Hebrews 10:35-36

Here’s to giving your all and not giving up, leaning into the grace that is more than enough. To stand tall in the storm with a choice to believe: even here, there is peace beyond all understanding. Here’s to good and faithful work and the seeds that you’ve sown, for all you have given matters more than you know. -MHN

Have you ever dipped your feet in a really cold pool? The first couple of seconds are difficult to bear, but a few minutes in, you become comfortable and can no longer feel how cold the water actually is. The temperature hasn’t changed; you just got used to it. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € As I sat by the pool last weekend, I realized that we can apply this principle to all kinds of situations in life. Examples of people’s capacity to adapt themselves to initially-uncomfortable situations can serve as inspirational stories, as well as cautionary tales. What we come to define as normal is either proof that we’ve successfully conquered something that we once considered to be challenging - or proof that we’ve been desensitized to danger. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € In the context of this specific post, I define danger as anything that has the capacity to pull us away from God. In this life, danger will always lurk around us, but we are not always insightful enough to recognize it as such. Sometimes, we get that initial feeling of “warning!” - but if we’re not careful to heed to it, at some point danger won’t feel like danger anymore. It will feel gradually feel like normal - much like having gotten used to cold water. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € To avoid having our senses numbed by the wisdom and “normalcy” of this age, we have to immerse ourselves in the counsel of the Word, rather than the counsel of the world.
Less than they deserve & less than God’s best for them. Don’t let this be you.

What I Learned When I Almost Missed My Flight:โ € โœˆ๏ธ โ € After a delay, I had 5 minutes to make it to my connecting flight. My perfect plan got a little messed up. I had two options - to give up and try to get on the next flight, OR to haul ass across the Atlanta airport and try my best to make it. โ € โœˆ๏ธ โ € I chose option number 2. If you were in the Atlanta airport at this time, you’d see a girl practically running people over with her Kate Spade duffel, shouting to the public that she was in a hurry, doing lunges down the escalator. It was a scene. โ € โœˆ๏ธ โ € After sprinting and huffing and puffing, I got to my gate. And what do ya know. I MADE IT. โ € โœˆ๏ธ โ € This taught me that when our plan doesn’t go our way, we have two options. We can give up, or we can try to run even harder, and hope for the best. You never know what miracle is behind the corner of hope.
YUMMY! The smell of freshly baked bread brings back memories of damper cooking in my Nan's kitchen. What made it so good is the love she used to put in when kneading it.

“Oh, I've dozens of plans, Marilla. I've been thinking them out for a week. I shall give life here my best, and I believe it will give its best to me in return. When I left Queen's my future seemed to stretch out before me like a straight road. I thought I could see along it for many a milestone. Now there is a bend in it. I don't know what lies around the bend, but I'm going to believe that the best does. It has a fascination of its own, that bend, Marilla. I wonder how the road beyond it goes--what there is of green glory and soft, checkered light and shadows--what new landscapes--what new beauties--what curves and hills and valleys further on."

DON'T GIVE UP - GOD IS FAITHFUL ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒธโค๏ธ Last summer, I bought this little 'Passion flower' plant in my local garden centre. I had researched its optimum conditions before I had purchased it and had prepared the soil, fastened a trellis to my fence and then sat back and waited for it to grow.  Weeks turned into months and to my dismay, my little plant remained the same size. As the temperatures started to fall, so did my hopes of it surviving through the winter. By the time spring came, the plant looked completely dead, the only leaves left were shrivelled up and diseased. I had all but given up hope and was about to dig it out and start again, when I made a last minute decision to cut back all the dead bits and fertilise it. A month or so later, I noticed my little plant had suddenly started to form new shoots! Two months after, it had doubled in size and now it has taken over the whole trellis and today, it opened its first flower! As I looked at this crown of beauty this morning, the Holy Spirit reminded me of the scripture, ''let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up." Galatians 6:9  There have been many seasons in my life where God has shared a seed of promise with me and I was absolutely certain that the conditions were right for it to grow, only to be disappointed at the result. What I didn't realise, was just like my little plant, I had lots of dead branches that needed pruning before I could bear fruit. You see, sometimes we have to be cut back before we can move forward.  Maybe like me, you've grown weary with waiting and want to give up and start again. It can be so frustrating when things aren't going the way you thought they were going to go. But what I didn't realise was that in the barren season, beneath the surface of the soil, my little plant was forming a network of roots that would sustain the expanse of the growth that has now taken place.  The purpose of the wait is to renew your strength
I want you to know how much you are loved by an infinite God who created you beautifully and placed you here for a purpose.  I want you to know that He wants to turn your broken into beautiful, your weeping into joy and your morning into dancing. That's why He sent His Son. He knows your flaws. He knows your imperfections He knows your brokenness And He still loves you with an everlasting love.

A few months ago, my friend Angie asked if I would hold her pulpit down @cometothetableincentral for her while she went overseas for a few weeks. . My first response was to ask if she was kidding. Because we both knew that there are more capable people for this. . We KNOW people who are more capable of this. . We could call those capable people up and ask them to hold this pulpit in place in her absence. . I could call them on all of our behalves. . But instead of agreeing, she just sat back and looked at me. Nodding her head in my direction with her arms crossed like she might try to fight me at recess and replied, “You ARE capable. You can do this”. . It is a special gift to have friends like this. People who look to you and see more of you than you can see in yourself. . So I set off, asking God what I could muster up that would be “sermon worthy” and at some point I realized that in our own mixed up and messy ways, we are all living and breathing sermons, written by the hand of God. Its all one big beautiful story being told by the Author of this life. And there is something powerful when we open our mouths and just talk about it. As honestly as we possibly can. It always seems to reveal something new about myself and God. Something I might not have ever seen. Something more. . And because I write down stories and turn them into books, this will be a test drive of sorts on pieces of my next book, which is some state of being done. . When Angie asked what to title this series I said without really thinking, “There is More” and the more I thought about it, the more I realized, that might be the name of this book. But who really knows.  I change books and titles a lot. . But please come. Hear my story. And join me in this beautiful community where we come to worship the God who has somehow taken all of the messes we have made in the midst of our moments and written something beautiful down with it. . Grace upon grace. Upon grace. Upon grace. It’s

Something new went live on the blog today! Here’s a little snippet: โœจ I'm not a morning person whatsoever. For real! Just ask my husband, lol. I've been trying to change that because I've seen how much my husband enjoys waking up early and getting things done. That and my mornings tend to be pretty chaotic when I wake up at the same time as the girls.  For the last 2-3 weeks, I've been determined to wake up between 5:30-6am to have some time for myself. Truth be told, I'm not always successful, and some days I wake up closer to 6:30 but I have not given up. Waking up before the kids wake up is an awesome start to my day. I get some much needed quiet time, time with God, time to plan my day, and time to drink my coffee before it gets cold (I bet a lot of you momma's are like, ahhh yess!). So today, I'm sharing with you my morning routine and a free morning worksheet called My Morning with God.... I'll get more into details later on about that *wink. . . . To continue reading check out the link in my bio ๐Ÿ˜ Be sure to leave me a comment with YOUR morning routine whether you are a SAHM, a working mom, a single mom, or not a mother at all! I want to know what your routine looks like! #impartingatouchoffaith
๐Ÿ”…I favor the doctrine of God's providence. God's providence refers to His intimate care in making certain that what He has both planned and promised, comes to pass. ๐Ÿ”…He is not only a God who is high and exalted far above His creation, He is a God who is both transcendent AND immanent (intimate) with His creation! ๐Ÿ”…Acts 17:27-28 says.. "Yet he is actually not far from each one of us, for "'In him we live and move and have our being.'" ๐Ÿ”…God can be known salvifically and experientially through a very tender intimacy with Him. ๐Ÿ”…John 14:21 says.."Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him." ๐Ÿ”…The Lord is no passive observer who takes in knowledge like we do. He knows His creation because He has ordained everything in His creation. His sovereign will brings all things to pass. May those who know the Father through Christ Jesus our Lord take great comfort  in knowing that the triune God of the universe is concerened with every intimate detail about YOU before you were even formed! ๐Ÿ”…To him be glory forever.
Mic drop. Right? Because knowing more about God shows me all the things about myself that I don't really want to see. But with this knowledge, comes sanctification and changes in behavior. Thankful for God molding me into a less selfish, judgy, impatient person.โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € One of the best books ever for anyone wanting to study scripture, @jenwilkin teaches straight forward while making you excited to understand more.

Often times, growth is a long process. Sometimes I feel like a failure because I’m not anywhere close to where I want to be. To who I want to be.โ  .โ  But layer by layer, He changes me.โ  Day by day, He grows me. He teaches meโ  Moment by moment, He transforms me.โ  .โ  Every piece of my transforming heart is a part of His story. Every moment I submit to Him, I learn more about His glorious story. And as I submit, my understanding grows, and my soul becomes more and more aligned with my Creator.โ  .โ  You may not be where you want to be or who you want to be, but when you submit to the Lord you realize: you are not a failure; you’re a part of God’s story. You are a work-in-progress. You are in preparation. You are being transformed.โ  .โ  2 Cor. 3:18 // “And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”โ  โ  Words: @valsmithblogโ  โ  โ 
"I'm wide awake drawing close stirred by grace and all my heart is Yours all fear removed I breathe You in I lean into Your love oh, Your love." -hillsong young + free  Anxiety didn't win today. I woke up, riddled with each thought that consumed me until the early hours of morning. I feigned a smile as I mumbled a quiet good morning to the boys.  And then, I turned this song on repeat.  I let each word wash over me, each word sink into my bones.  I took a shower, got the boys and myself ready, and buckled them into their car seats + we set out for an adventure. We took a long walk down by the river, admiring the beautiful creations of God.  We giggled as we ran down the path, each of their little hands in mine.  Today, I chose to rest in grace. And tomorrow I will choose the same. Anxiety cannot win this battle when I have God by my side... not today, not ever. ๐ŸŒฟ
โSmall Reminder:โ ๐Ÿ’Œ When you feel weak, lost, hopeless, unloved or worthless! Remember that Jesus fights for you, loves you as no one else and that you can, and you will get through Him! There will be no guilts or accusations that stood before us! You will be fine!  What seemed impossible or without exit, you will see the power of God in your life! ๐Ÿ’Œ • ~ Gio
Many times I needed God's confirmation of who I am. I wanted someone special attention, someone who noticed my heart and who I am. I wanted someone who really cared, who would tell me that  saw me and understood me in a unique way, someone who asked how my day was & how I was feeling... So I knew Jesus, and I never felt so important and loved, to know that He cares about the little things that happen in my day to day, to know that I have company, because I always felt lonely and helpless!  I had nowhere to go, for I was lost, but He found me, surrounded me with love and peace, that only I can find in Him! So, please, don't accept beg for love, don't accept crumbs when you can have love, and in full! ๐Ÿ’˜ โžณ I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.  Jeremiah 31:3
Many times we think that God has the pleasure of seeing us suffering... Or many times, through our own ignorance, we think that He doesn't care about us or our pain.  But, many times, pain is used by Him as a purpose to bring us closer to Him! ๐Ÿ’—  He don't want to see us in suffering, in illusions, in pains or in perdition ... But all this is the result of our own decisions and our ways... God allows the pain to prove that the path of sin would only lead to suffering & pain!  But, that's not what He wants for us, He wants from the beginning, to have us close to Him every moment, we were created to be with Him, to enjoy His company and to have the pleasure of being with the One who created us.  Let the Holy Spirit be your best friend! Seek Him until you are intimate! God wants you to come with His incomparable love, open your heart and let Him in, let Him change things in place, don't be ashamed or afraid, let Him complete the purpose that He has dreamed for you! ๐Ÿ’Œ • ~ Gio
Do you ever have those moments when you feel discouraged? I know I do.โฃ โฃ Perhaps your discouragement is due to a certain situation or circumstances.โฃ โฃ Or maybe you’ve been putting your hope in something only God can bring forth and it hasn’t happened yet. Years go by and after countless prayers, still nothing. The reality of the answered prayer gets smaller as the time goes by, and in return, leaves you feeling discouraged.โฃ โฃ I don’t think discouragement is a particularly bad thing, but as Christians we need to know what to do with it. We can either let it consume us, or we can let the discouragements drive us closer to God. โฃ โฃ Because of this, I gathered up 20 Bible verses to help in the time of discouragement. โฃ โฃ Click link in bio to read the new post, and download your cheat sheet that includes all the verses. ๐Ÿค“

I was 14 years old; a shy, nervous, freshman who had just gotten her braces off. He was two years older; tall, confident, a good singer. We started dating, much to the dismay of my parents, and before I knew it, I was in the type of relationship that was meant for someone much older than me.โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € // Excerpt from "The Power of Consent" by @Courtknees.

This morning, the boy took a bike ride and I gave him my usual mom chat. โ €โ € Be present. Pay attention to traffic. Watch for reverse lights in driveways. Notice nature. BE PRESENT. โ €โ € He came back saying there was something I had to see in the park. It COULD NOT wait. โ €โ € So I went and had the honor of having him tell me how much the grass had grown on the sand pile near the ball field since the weekend. โ €โ € Bless it. Sweet lil babe. ๐Ÿ’™ I won’t lie. I had to remind myself to slow down and be thankful for this moment. So glad he shared his kid wisdom with me. โ €โ € #sacredintheordinary #holisticfaith #highvibelife #healthymindset #positiveliving #powerofthemind #raiseyourvibrations #speaklife #christianblogger #youarepowerful #spiritualawareness #surrender #spiritualawakening #spirituality  #spiritualgrowth #authenticliving #holisticlifestyle  #holisticlife #lovemyfam #summerbreak #momlife #createalifeyoulove #faithblogger #scriptureoftheday #deeplyrooted #thehappynow #familyfirst #naturequotes #soulwisdom #soulscripts via @preview.app

God has been meeting us in such unexpected ways this week. We are half way through our time at camp and are thankful for the opportunity to worship with Romanians, Roma and other Americans all under one roof!
If only you guys could see everything that changed in me last week!  I've spent these days just remembering everything God told me last Thursday, and crying ... I also think how I am not worthy of this love, which has incredibly  conquered me.  Sometimes we need this moment to remind ourselves why we started, that we are not alone and we will not give up! To hear the Lord tell me that He loves me, that I please Him, and that He has strengthened me, it has made me almost, not to sleep, just to remember that it's  He who guards me, supports me, protects me & cares for me!  Have confidence in the One you gave your life to!  Love Him with all your heart, no matter how many stones they are throwing at you or how much you are slandered, none of that will prosper! ♥♥♥ _ "I was lost and weary Found in hurt and shame But there came your love And washed it all away How could I respond To such gracious love All I can do is to offer All I am before your alter All I am is your forever O, my heart will rest in you Lover of my soul Love that makes me whole". @laurasouguellis • ~ Gio
As parents, few things are more important to us than this: that our kids know that God is good.
