Summer classes felt a little bit like a whirlwind but are now over! Wooohoo! 🙌🏼💪🏼Even though these have been some really busy weeks, I am amazed to see the power of being grounded daily in the Word of God! To be honest, this is the first time I don’t stop the habit of spending time in the Word and I can say it made the WHOLE DIFFERENCE. The challenge for me and for you is to be able to set God’s Word as a priority in our lives in the midst of busy seasons. So let’s use these next two weeks before the fall semester start to come daily to the Word and seek God intentionally! Let’s develop these habits before the busy seasons start so when they do we are grounded in the rock of our Salvation!! I’ll begin reading 1 Corinthians on Monday and will post the reading plan I’ll follow tomorrow! Who is with me!?

This summer has felt slower than normal. I'm learning to embrace a slower rhythm. I've never been a fan of going slow or taking my time. To my shame, I got several speeding tickets that prove this point! I've always felt like speed was an integral part of efficiency. And efficiency in turn, a mark of adulthood and success. But the more I read the Bible and get to know God and his Son in those pages, the more I'm struck by the contrast between God's pace and mine. I wrote some thoughts⬇️ * The human experience happens in morsels and sound bites. And God can be invited into each one of these. There are new mercies for each day’s worth. When I’m in a hurry, I remember to invite God mainly because I need him to finish up quickly, not because I want him.// Link in profile-->"Slow is good."
✨I AM WORTHY & I AM ENOUGH✨ ⠀⠀ 👉🏻 Being a woman can be hard and being a woman in a creative field and trying to grow her business is even harder. ⠀⠀ 💥 There are a lot of things that come with being a woman, but one thing I forget often is that I am worthy and enough. ⠀⠀ 👭 In our society there is a lot that WE as women have to overcome. Imagine if we all knew our worth and believed that we are in fact enough. ⠀⠀ 🙋🏼♀️I’ve struggled with: -Depression -Being laid off -Failed in my business -Felt insecurely about my body -Comparing myself to others -Been a terrible friend ⠀⠀ ✋🏻 Even though I’ve felt all of these things and so much more my worthiness doesn’t depend on the things I have done or failed at. It makes me better. I am worthy because I am alive and breathing. I am worthy because I am human. Despite my imperfections and failures I am worthy. ⠀⠀ ❗️The day this photo was taken some random on the street called me a kid and made a rude comment to Corey about him being with a child. Often times I feel most insecure about my appearance of looking young and people putting me down or not acknowledging me because I appear young. My worth can’t be taken away from me by others or by my thoughts. ⠀⠀ 🍾I’m joining hundreds of other women with @theauthenticwomanseries during August 14th-16th as we all claim our worth together to take a stand showing the world and Instagram that we are more than a selfie in a feed. We are lighting the fire in our souls and crushing our dreams. We are beautiful. We are strong. We are enough. . . . . #theauthenticwoman #persuepretty #theauthenticwomanseries #sheislight #thatsdarling #womenempowerwomen #boldbraveyou #solovelysofree #theeverydaygirl #embraceyourself #wholeheartedwoman #knowyourworth #inspireeverywoman #shetheroar #thecatholicfeminist #wordbeforeworld #communityovercompetition #transformdontconform #herprogressnz #blessedisshe #thecatholicwoman #womenoffaith #soulscripts #weareunveiled #sheiscaptivating #shelaughsproject #wellwateredwomen #bedeeplyrooted #proverbs31woman #shereadstruth @preview.app
If you don’t know what sets your soul on fire, go the heck out and find it! And don’t stop looking until you do. And when you find it, don’t stop pursuing it. That pursuit is what makes us come alive! — This morning I was doing some reflecting about what sets my soul on fire. What do I get more excited about than anything else? It isn’t my job, my passions, my gifts, how I get to love and serve people, teach and empower, see people’s health do absolute 90 degrees turns or anything else like that. Sure, those things are AWESOME and I do get excited about them every single day. But as I thought about it this morning, I realized that those aren’t the things that actually set my soul on fire. — It’s Jesus. Every single time. It’s in my pursuit of Him that those other things come more alive, because He is the one who has placed those things in me to begin with my given me opportunities to pursue them more everyday. We come alive as we pursue HIM. Our souls are set on fire as we jump into this pursuit of HIM, day after day. All the extra bonus things we get excited about along the way are great. But in the ultimate end, if all those things were suddenly taken away from me, would my soul still be on fire? Would yours? Because there’s One thing that can never be taken away from me. From you. — Let that, let HIM, be my ultimate pursuit today. Because HE is what sets my soul on fire. All the rest is extra ✌️
If there is one thing that can change the atmosphere in my home, my work space, or my car, it’s praise music. Praise is a biblical mandate (read basically any Psalm) and that’s because it’s a powerful tool in spiritual (and in many biblical instances, literal) warfare. 🎼 I have seen a marked difference in my ability to focus on my prayer and Bible study when I play soft praise music in the background. A friend who worked as a school teacher in the Bronx once told me that she would play praise music in her classroom as soon as her kids left for the day, and the peace and calm she felt was immediate. 🎼 If it’s not a habit of yours, pick a time in your day to listen to praise music. Maybe while you’re getting ready, or while you’re driving. When things get stressful or chaotic (for me, when I’m making dinner…) Sing along if you want. Or just let it wash over you and the place where you are. See if you don’t notice the atmosphere change.

We're a mad bunch 🙃 had a fab day before sending Ty on his 8 hour journey home 😱 🚍
College lesson #2 : Friends will come and go. Do not hold that against them or yourself. - Probably the BIGGEST thing I learned in college was that biblical friendship and worldly friendship could not be more different. As much as us ladies want to “find our tribe” or “find our bridesmaids” friendship won’t always look like a set group of girlfriends who never leave each other’s side. Life happens. Growth happens. God’s plans happen. And sometimes that will mean friends stinking around for years, but it could also mean that certain friends will come and go within a matter of months. That doesn’t always make them bad friends, and it definitely doesn’t make you a bad friend either. - I had friends leave, then come back years later. Friends that cut me off for extremely insignificant reasons. Friends that went on to do other things far from me. A best friend that left and never came back. I’ve had friends come and go for both valid and invalid reasons. But regardless of the cause, each and every relationship flourished and ended in God’s decided time. - Your friendships are not designed by God to simply fulfill fun times and make you feel good. Friendship is designed to grow one another and ultimately bring God glory. So love people as much as possible for as long as God allows them in your life. Be vulnerable. Be sacrificial. Give them everything you have. And show them every ounce of Christ within you because you never know how long you’ll be blessed to know them.
Super grateful for the chance to speak at 1 Million Cups this morning and share more about what we do at Lost & Found Grief Center! Also grateful this sweet friend came to support me so at least one person was in the audience. Swipe left if you want to see how much I talk with my hands. Pretty sure this was when I told everyone they were now advocates for Lost & Found whether they liked it or not, hahaha 💁🏼♀️
New blog up! Check out “My Chains Are Gone” on Speakboldly.life In the blog post, I get transparent about battling sin, understanding my identity in Christ, and what it truly means to live in freedom. Check it out and share with a friend!
Every now and again I see these two together and it catches my breath. My two most tender babes. My two most sensitive kids. My boys who’s names bear my family’s traditions and stories. It fills my heart with gratitude and love when I see them together.
My momma heart ached when my last child started school this year. He started high school and boy did it sink in that our children are not ours for very long. I mean they become their own decision making person. They won’t always “need” you for every little thing like we might think. God is teaching me to be open handed with a lot of things and my children is where I learned this years ago. The tighter we hold onto “our” desires the more shattered they become. It has been a process of time holding onto God’s promises and His desires that mends our shattered and brokenness. What season of mothering are you in right now? What lesson is God teaching you? Bless you mommas as you send your Little’s and Big’s back to school this year 😊 . . \pictured is #handmadeknitsbytracy #blessedmomma knit bracelet/ Did you see we are having a 20% off Back to School Sale?

He is writing your story. 〰️ You can trust the Author of this world and the creative + generous heart of your Father to write the perfect story for your life. It may have some twist and turns, some valleys and mountains, but He is able to do immeasurably more than all you could ask or imagine. 🖤
What are you committing to do this week? Who are you committing to be? Don't make those promises lightly. If you say you're going to go to the gym, you better get moving! If you say you're going to revamp your resume, you better open up that computer! If you say you're going to increase your outbound call volume by 10%, you better pick up the dang phone! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You will bend over backward to keep your word to everyone else, so why do you keep breaking the promises you make to yourself?

For years I sat on the Church pew physically present but mentally I would be a thousand miles away. Everything from what I was going to eat for lunch, to the week's tasks at hand were taking my mind captive from what the Pastor was teaching. In December of 2016, I found an empty notebook that had been collecting dust for years. When I started to think of how I could adequately put that notebook to use I felt persuaded to begin taking sermon notes. I had a longing desire brewing in my soul to be more receptive to the message rather than just being another body on the pew. .

“For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.” - Ecclesiastes 3:1 . Change can be hard. There’s a lot of unknown and uncertainty that lies ahead. Whether it’s going off to college or graduating college, moving to a new city or state, beginning a new job or even a relationship, we cannot predict what will happen. I’m someone who typically can embrace change, but there have been instances that have rattled me and I’ve struggled to adapt, and I know people who simply despise change. Whichever boat you fall into, there are three things we must all believe when going through transitions. . . . Click the link in my bio for my latest post for Lane of Roses to see what those three things are we must believe when we are in seasons of change. . .

Community hasn’t always been a scary word to me, but over the last few years it has become that way. It is now something I have to push myself into instead of running to it. ________________________________________________ Maybe it’s because of past hurts, or maybe it’s because I care too much about what others will think of me, or maybe it’s because I’m worried no one will actually like me. The truth is, it’s all of those things. But praise the Lord that He doesn’t just leave me in that mess. He has put it on my heart to get out and seek community and has given me little nuggets on that topic to encourage me to do so. One of those nuggets is Craving Connection, a 30 day challenge to dive deeper into relationships, which we are giving away in honor of our one year “blogiversary”!! ________________________________________________ ***GIVEAWAY*** Along with the book we are also giving away a journal to pair with it, and some Bible highlighters from @thedailygraceco!

This morning, I’m putting my faith in the God of green pastures, still waters, paths of righteousness, the valley of death, and the presence of enemies. 🙌🏼 He’s in & throughout the details of every season. What will you trust Him with today?
God spoke the universe into existence. He made you, He made me, He sustains us, He sacrificed His life for us. He has blessed us richly. So what could ever be more fitting than to thank & praise God?! I love this Psalm & prayer. Today, and everyday, let’s pray for blessings so that others may see God’s work in our lives & come to KNOW Him intimately.
"The earth and everything on it belong to the Lord. The world and its people belong to him." Psalm 24:1 ☕ God, thank you for these brave friends. It is hard to remember and live like all we have is Yours. I want it all more often than not. To be seen, financially secure, to take the credit and glory for everything I do. The glory is not our to have. It is all Yours. We are Your children and all we have is all from You and to You. Help us to be good stewards with all the resources, skills, and space You have given us. Help us to not take for granted the magnitude of all You have given us. Strengthen us to share an give away the places in ourselves You have redeemed. Thank you for giving us all we need to display Your amazing love to the world. We love You. 🌻
"Prayer is voluntary weakness; it's saying I can't but God can." - @willbranchiam ⠀ ⠀ I like the idea of choosing weakness - of viewing it less as a limitation, and more as an opportunity to proclaim the Lord's goodness. ⠀ ⠀ This truth, spoken during last weekend's sermon @eastbrookchurch has really got my wheels turning - I think we're greatly underestimating the power within our weaknesses.⠀ ⠀ Stay tuned, I think there's a blog post brewing from this one. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #amwriting #hopewriters #loveminblog #milwaukeeblogger #prayer #wellwateredwomen #bedeeplyrooted #gritandvirtue #dearlymagazine #ezermagazine #speaklife #soulscripts #soulscriptssisterhood #wildandfree #propelwomen #postwithpurpose #creativeworldview #encouragementgallery #womenintheword #graceupongrace #christianblogger #shereadstruth #lifelivedbeautifully #alwaysmore #soulandsparkle #givemejesus #goodnewsfeed #wordbeforeworld #itiswell #chasinglight
“This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus.” 1 John 4:17 NIV - Emphasis on “In this world we are like Jesus”. ————- The believer is called to represent and reflect Christ but it is impossible to do so without a knowledge of Him. ———- The Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) catalog the life of whom we are to reflect - Jesus. Also importantly the Gospels point out how Christ fulfilled prophecies in the old testament such as Isaiah 7:14. ———— They contain events surrounding his birth and the humble conditions of his family. His ministry and care for people around Him. The conflicts and judgement he faced as a result of His obedience to God, His execution and resurrection. The gospels give a deeper and a more profound understanding of who Christ is. ——— To reflect Christ, one must have a knowledge and understanding of who He was and who He is. You do not have to be told when you can get to know Him through the word with revelations from the Holy Spirit. ——— As a Christian Woman, how badly do you want to reflect Christ Here on earth? If it is your desire to reflect Him, challenge yourself to study at least one of the gospels for a deeper understanding of who He Is. You are because He is!!!! #christculturedwoman #sheisbecauseheis #shereadstruth
The woman gathered vessels from her neighbors to be filled by God with oil. This was a public display of her faith. Later, within her own home and her door shut she and her two sons filled every pot to the brim. They did so privately. Sometimes we experience situations or trials that seem to be on display for the world to see. As a result The Lord blesses immensely. Occasionally those blessings come intimately, between only you and Him. That doesn’t make them any less significant. God loves you. Allow him to show you that even when no one else is looking.

With the rising of each new sun, the Lord is sovereign over things both big and small in our days, the life decisions and the laundry piles. And He is the God of the big things and the small things in His creation, too, of the mountains and the molecules alike. . . He is in the details. And it is a joy for us to take a closer look. To enjoy it outside, to read of it in a field guide, to record it in a notebook, to preserve His handiwork and see it as He made it. . . The heavens above us declare His glory, the lilies at our feet declare His provision. His praises are the song of birds, and even the rocks cry out. His might and His goodness are all about us, and yet, Isaiah reminds us that though the grass withers and the flower fades, only His Word will stand forever. In all of the awe and wonder, may we always ground our lessons in Truth, in Love. Calvary Love. . For He spoke and it came to be; He commanded and it stood firm, the psalmist says. And He sent His Son who paid it all and conquered death that we might know joy abundantly and life eternally. . In our science studies, to God be the glory. . . . @fawnandforest nature collection tray in Oak . Brock Magiscope monocular microscope
Wednesday morning reflections: good morning!

Not going to lie, but lately I have not followed my meal plan fully. With my in-laws here, it makes it more difficult to eat what I want to eat. I mean, if someone cooked for you everyday, would you say no?? 😉 But today I am "starting over." I made my shake this morning, which starts every day right! Today I put mangos, strawberries, almond milk, and super foods from around the world..yummmm! I also have a gluten intolerance which I haven't been keeping to that either.

..."take your sandals off your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground. And he said, "I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob." Exodus 3:5a-6a || Every morning when our feet hit the floor our grind begins. Each persons' is different carrying with it unique roles and responsibilities. Some days fly by without any glitches while other days seem like an atomic bomb went off. || But what's so special about each of our grinds is that it's precious, it's ordained, & it's by the Father's sovereign hand we wake up and face it day in and day out. The ground that we tread is holy and sacred and we are so unworthy. || Praise Him. || He gives grace when it is so undeserved, he gives mercy when it is our fault and we deserve nothing but wrath. He is the Father from ancients days past and is the same Father here and now who when we lean in close, He leans in closer. || When taking off your shoes today look down then look up and praise Him, thank Him, our grind is given by a good Father and His ground we tread is holy! || I’ve shared this before and today I share it again. My heart needed it. I hope it brings encouragement to you if your heart needed it again too! 🧡#motherhoodissanctifying #graceupongrace #wordbeforeworld #jesuswritesthebeststories

This from David is such a powerful message and reminder to ACCEPT God’s mercy and grace - His Forgiveness! David says he was blameless before Him AND kept himself from guilt. Now we know that isn’t to say he was without sin. But it speaks to the fact that he repented, he changed his ways, he accepted his consequences AND rejoiced and praised God being thankful for His mercies! This is how we keep ourselves from guilt which is the enemy’s way of Grounding Us In Lies and Turmoil. Guilt affects our attitude of gratitude, how much gratitude can we fully express if we don’t believe our God loves us enough to forgive us? This keeps our focus off of God, which is where it should be at all times. We will sin, we are not perfect BUT our God is! He loves us and we can be covered by the Cross, by our Redeemer when we choose to confess, repent, receive, rejoice....accept the grace we have been given. Let go of that baggage...only then can we leap and run...then we are free with both hands to do the work of the Lord. MOST importantly we are free to use those two hands in 🙏🏻 praising and thanking our PERFECT GOD and JESUS for making us righteous in His sight. God bless and all 💕 today to all us imperfect warriors! #godisgood #wordbeforeworld #morningdevotion #bethechange

“My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” Psalm 73:26 So I was born in a Godly family. I was raised in a ministry, and we had fellowships all the way to Bible lectures for years. But it is not until I was 15 that God personally called me and asked me to serve in Youth Ministries. At that time I was entering a new phase where I learned that God didn't want me only to know Him, but rather to be close to Him. Since then I've been going all out for ministry, I gave most of my time, energy and all. And little do I realize, I began putting my trusts and hopes on humans in ministry, not God. My focus shifted. I felt that my priorities were my responsibilities at church and no longer having a close relationship with Him. It went on for a year until He taught me something valuable. One Sunday service when I was ministering, my mom came up to me and told me that my greatgrandma who lived with us passed away at home "unsaved". That very moment I felt really guilty and I felt the urge to rush home, but on the other hand I knew it's all too late. All the friday nights having cells at home were unmeaningful. Wouldn't I be a hypocrite by doing that everyweek but rarely shared the same gospel to my own greatgrandma at home? That day I realized something wasn't right with me, but I can't leave since I have ministry responsibilities towards my leaders that whole day. But eversince then, I tried to change and spend more time with my family. I learned that the greatest thing you can ever do is ministering your family and seeing them all again in Heaven one day. .

Finished up week 2 of Abigail, Dealing with difficult people in your life study... Learning so much in this study. How easy it is to react like David did when Nabal rejected his request for food. We just react and don’t think about what we’re really doing. In the heat of the moment our flesh takes over, and we spew off words that we later regret. That’s why we need to ask daily for guidance and control of our tongue..🙌🏼 #reviveourhearts #abigailbiblestudy #nabal #davidandabigail #biblestudy #womenofgod #womanofgod #womenintheword #womanaftergodsheart #bible #scripture #jesus #bechristlike #wellwateredwomen #wordbeforeworld #godsword #studytheword
WAITING:- ‘to remain in place in readiness or expectation of something’ . . We’ve all experienced the effects or even delays of waiting, waiting for your place next in a queue, waiting for your favourite clothes sale to begin, waiting for a long day to end, we’ve all had to wait for something. . . I’m a go getter and if there’s something to get done I love to get in and do it quickly, the downside to that is I struggle with patience . . PATIENT: bearing pains or trials calmly or without complaint . . The truth is we’ve all struggled with that st one time or other in our lives, but I’ve come to learn that God has and is showing me the importance of waiting . . 1.Wheres my focus 2. How am I waiting 3. What is He refining . . We might not always know the answer to 3 initially but I’d encourage those in a period of waiting for whatever it may be, trust as God is teaching me, the He be my focus whatever it is will come. . . “This vision is for a future time. It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled. If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed.” Habakkuk 2:3 NLT
if I were to give advice to my younger self i’d say.... ▪️stop comparing yourself to other girls around you. there will always be someone who is further along or has more experience or talent BUT that doesn’t make you less. you are beautifully made by your Creator and be confident in who He has made you ▪️LAUGH. Lighten up because life isn’t always easy and you will have conflict. Be the first to say “i’m sorry” and learn that love isn’t just a feeling it’s actions ▪️do more of what you love. spending time with people, playing sports or going on hikes, singing and leading, reading theology books! -Lau Lau (22 years old) i still have to remind myself of those things but oh how I wish I had been more thoughtful of those a few years ago. What would you tell your younger self? #comparisonisthethiefofjoy #dearyoungerme #liveinthemoment #happyandblessed #laughteristhebestmedicine #hikingpnw #runmore #pastorswife #womenoftheword #wordbeforeworld #fitnessandhealth

Sharing an Insta-clap for this message! Holding on to the “shoulds” does nothing but suck the life out of us and detract us from our purpose @Regrann from @wellwateredwomen - I was a “should” addict. Always struggling with what I “should” be doing and feeling like I was disappointing everyone around me. I “shouldn’t” be struggling with anxiety. I “should” be doing more than just the dishes and laundry today. I “should” say yes to this so I don’t disappoint this person (knowing that yes was my best answer). “Should” held me captive for years until I started having wise mentors and friends point out to me the danger of being imprisoned to this word. “Should” takes God out of the equation and puts me in the center. “Should” shackles me to my inadequacies and shortcomings and forgets that God’s grace is more than enough.⠀ ⠀ Any time we start living life based off of “should”, we’ve left the grace of God and forgotten that the Christian life is a “get to.” We “get to” trust the Lord with our next breath. We “get to” serve Him where we are. We “get to” embrace His merciful redemption. We “get to” surrender our “should’s” and remember all that Jesus has already done. That is what ultimately defines us. ⠀ ⠀ If you are a “should” addict like I’ve been, begin today by letting go of those burdensome “should’s” that are weighing you down and distracting you from the grace of God. Name each of them and lay them at Jesus’ feet and ask Him to show you the freedom and joy of living the “get to” life of following Him. We are free, sisters. And we “get to” live in that freedom, shirking off the oppression of “should” while resting in His #graceuponamazinggrace . - @gretchensaffles #wordbeforeworld #wellwateredwomen #shereadstruth
Sometimes in life you get the chance to step outside of yourself. _ To step back from your agenda and your priorities and your selfishness. _ Times to wade deep into the uncertainty of other’s pain and times to altogether look towards the beautiful unknown and to rest in the truth that even the unknown is entirely known by our great and good and loving God. _ A time to marvel at the depths and the wonder and the vastness of the infinite knowledge of God. _ A time to not understand, but to be willing to search, to wait, to take one step further and to be still in front of the Lord’s marvelous unravellings in life. _ This time has been utterly sweet and difficult altogether. Joys muddle with sorrow in a beautiful, ever-grateful way. _ Lord, teach us your wisdom.
Did you try to fast today? If so, you might be acutely aware of some things in yourself that aren’t quite right. I don’t know about you, but for me, fasting reveals the truth about what’s going on inside of me. Things like impatience, fear, the need for control, the idolizing of my own comfort. ▪️ ▫️ Right now is a good time to take those things to the cross, to confess them and ask Jesus to forgive us. ▪️ ▫️ But repentance is not only apologizing. Repentance means turning away. Setting a new direction. Leaving the old path to chart a new one. And this is where intentionality plays a role. I can’t passively repent. If I don’t make conscious effort, momentum will carry me right back to the things I just turned away from. ▪️ ▫️ Make it a priority to repent daily. Repent quickly and often. Model true repentance for your families and friends. It doesn’t come naturally, but most things worth practicing don’t.
I’ve been really struggling... - I never want to come across as the person who has it all together...because I sure don’t. - I’m struggling with body imagine I’m struggling with comparison I’m struggling with feeling qualified I’m struggling with seeing where God is leading me. - Social media is a great way to share my life, but being a Christian doesn’t mean my life is rainbows and butterflaps 24/7. - I will always show up on here as a person to uplift and encourage you. But I’ve been struggling and the truth is that I’ve had more breakdowns in the last three months than I’ve ever had in my life. - Gods grown me, pruned me, rooted me deeper, and ultimately brought me to a place where I’ve HAD to rely on Him every single second of my days. - But the one thing that has kept me rooted and from giving up on myself and some things in my life is Christ and my faith in His promises. Knowing that because I know He is with me, goodness will always come out on the other side. I’m thankful for the struggles cause I’ve seen God work in such beautiful ways through them. - I just want to remind you that if you are struggling today, it’s okay. It’s okay to not have it all together and be battling your own mind on a daily basis. Because I’ve found that wherever there is hardships, there is more of God’s Grace. - So I encourage you to reach out for it. Let go of any pride you feel in your heart to do it on your own and surrender to the unknown, the unplanned, and the tough crap. - Cause Gods got you. I promise. Souls that are rooted in Christ may lose a few branches from the storm, but the foundation will always stand strong. - #rooted #rootedinhim #iwillnotbeshaken #bethebreakthrough #selflove #hisnamesaves #yourbrokennessiswelcomehere #womenofworth #wordbeforeworld #itiswellwithmysoul #overcomer #breakthrough #flytefam #nameaboveallnames #isurrender

Our hearts are always looking to be filled with something. We look for the praise of people or accomplishments or our family and we measure our worth based on that. Gods love is never changing. People will always have their opinions about you but God will love you always because He made you. His love is better than life and what it can offer us. I want to rest in this truth and not in believing the lies of the world. He loves me and died for me and for that I will forever praise Him.

Regrann from @sarahmcdugal - Thank you, @sophiahamilton for this profound thought today! Truth and freedom are powerful things. How do you take hold of them and break free from lies you’ve been believing? You can start by studying and speaking truth from the Word, and asking God to show you what lies hold you hostage. “Lord, what are the lies I’ve been believing about _________?” Once He shows you, you can renounce the lies. “I break the agreement I’ve made with this lie. Jesus, forgive me for giving this a place in my heart. Bring me back to what is true. Open my eyes to see truth about this.” ## #freedom #truth #lies #emotionalfreedom #healing #power #strength #jesus #womenintheword #wordbeforeworld #soulscripts #quoteoftheday #quotestoliveby #liveWILD - #regrann
How consistently and desperately do you pray for your children? . As mothers, we are called to plead with God on behalf of our children, but do we? I know it is easy for me to get so caught up in the mundane that I lose sight of an eternal perspective. May we fight together against this attitude! . Join with me today in fervently praying for our little ones. If you don't know where to begin, click the link in my bio. This week's post is full of resources on why we pray for our children, what we pray for, and guides for new believers or believers who are struggling with their prayer life.
hi! how’s everyone! i’ve been a little busy with a personal project which I am very much keep to share here. But I want it finished first. I miss hanging out here and hope I can do so again in the next few days. 🌿 Ps This is an old artwork. I had trouble with the Coliro colours watercolour when I was starting out. But love seeing my progress. :) 🕊 #catholicartist
At 9, the world isn’t scary. You still believe you’re beautiful. You have faith that amazes me and dreams that surpass my own👌🏼. At 9, the world is big and an adventure that you need to conquer. At 9, you’re tough as rocks. You’re a dreamer. You can throw a mean right hook, your laughter echoes throughout the house. And you have not learned yet to apologize for any of those things 🙌🏼 At 9, my prayer is you never learn to try and make yourself less than you are. You embrace your voice, your hair, your body and your soul. Most of all-you embrace your big dreams and huge plans. ✌🏼 You are a warrior. You are a princess. You are kind and you are strong. You are giving, yet demanding of your rights. And unlike so many adult women I know, you’ve found that you’re allowed to be both, and neither, and anything you want on any given day. You’re a special one, my little Tiger Lily. 💙

My boys. I took this picture as I was pulling out to go to work today. • I can't WAIT till the day I don't have to take this picture as I'm heading to work. I can't WAIT till I can walk them to school, go to their events, give them more of my time. "What are you talking about, Kiley? Arent you afraid of financial stability?" NO. Wanna know why? Because of this business I am apart of. I am going to be able to stay at home and spend more time with my family because I will be able to give my family a better life. • • Are you looking for financial freedom? A better life for your family and yourself? Want to help others as well? Craving community? • • Message me to see how you can be a part of this with me! I would LOVE to just chat with no obligations.
I am trying to do better at reading good material to learn things, rather than wasting my time in the black hole of the Internet. So far this is a wonderful book. I often find Christian women's books to be watered down, too simple, too feelings-based (and that's coming from Ms Emotional over here), and trying to hard to be relevant. This book, however, is very deep and speaks right to my heart ❤ #wellwateredwomen #shereadstruth #biblejournaling #womenoftheword #wordbeforeworld #faith #Jesus #pray #blessed #inHisimage #bibles #esv #jenwilkin #Jesusgirls #christianwomen #christiangirl
College lesson #1 : you aren’t as powerful as you think you are - I remember entering college thinking if I went to the wrong school, if I chose the wrong major, if I made the wrong friends...my entire life would be ruined. Or at the very least I would miss out on something better God had planned for me. - Fam. You ain’t as powerful as you think you are. Take it from the chick that spent her first year in an irrelevant and frankly horrifying major, stoned out of her mind, chasing one boy after the other. You are not powerful enough to overcome God’s plans for you. If you screw up, if you feel you made the wrong decision, if you feel you’ve wasted time or effort, chill. Repent. Submit. It is never too late for God to use you and you are never too far from his path for you. In fact I boldly feel you are never truly off of it no matter what you do. - You will screw up. You will make decisions that don’t go the way you expected them to. And lucky for you that’s exactly how God’s plans for us typically go. Trust that God is more powerful than your tendency to screw things up. Trust he has a plan for you, that believe it or not, includes every last mistake you have or ever will make. And trust that He has already promised you that His plan is good and it will glorify His name. His sovereignty > your ability to screw things up friends. Always.
#Repost @ashleyruzicka ‘s Story 💕Thank you Ashley!! ・・・ For my birthday I wanted a custom painted Bible with the lyrics from the Ginny Owens (@blindchickphotog)song I love. It’s finally here. I cannot do it justice and the lighting isn’t quite right since it’s dark and rainy out, but It is so gorgeous and more beautiful than I could have imagined. I always keep my Bible on my bed, so when we redid my room I got the idea.... Edna made it just perfect for the room!

The priests had to okay the food the people ate. They stood each morning and evening to praise God on the people’s behalf. They also offered their burnt sacrifices unto The Lord. They were in charge of the congregation/holy place/tabernacle. In the New Testament we are referred to as the temple of God. How do you handle the responsibility of being in charge? What do you choose to fill your mind, heart and soul with? In other words, is what you’re consuming good? Do you make a conscience effort to praise God daily? Are you familiar with the benefits of sacrificing your fleshly desires for obedience to God’s truth? You have free will. You get to choose how you serve. I encourage you to follow the Levites lead and be faithful to your God. . . . . . #biblestudy #christianblogger #kjv #theword #blogger #author #womenintheword #shereadstruth #jesus #christian #faith #christianity #encouragement #legacy #soulscripts #lampandlight #bedeeplyrooted #wellwateredwomen #wordbeforeworld #soulscripts #lampandlight #dailydevotion #itiswell #scripture #healthychoices
We are all about marriage at the blog this month <3 (Link to the blog post is in my profile) - Let me ask you a question? Would you think of your submission to your husband as an act of worship to the Lord? To be perfectly honest it's not the first thing that comes to my mind. - When I'm reminded that my submission to my husband is to be voluntary and is not dependent on his behavior, then I can see how it is an act of worship and obedience to the Lord in his calling for me as a wife. - Submission is a sweet, undeserved gift we can give to our husbands because we have a great love and trust for the Lord. - Even the best of husbands who are easy to submit to most days will not be that way every day. So how can we have hearts that are ready to submit even when it's challenging? - When our husbands don't seem deserving? The reminder that I have to come back to is that it is the Lord's will for me to submit, not my husbands. If you've been following along with the podcast series on marriage, my husband joined us last week in sharing on the theology of submission. Tomorrow I'll be sharing on what submission is and isn't on the marriage series so I'd love you to listen in if you haven't joined us yet. - There is much joy in being obedient to God's Word and that joy carries over into our marriages when we follow God's plan for our marriage. It doesn't mean it will be easy, but as we look to Jesus, I hope our hearts will find delight in honoring and serving Him in every area of our lives. - Link to the blog post is in my profile - https://thankfulhomemaker.com/submission-as-an-act-of-worship/* * * * * * * #submission #christianmarriage #marriage #christian #christianity #thankfulhomemaker #homemakingministries #bedeeplyrooted #womenintheword #wellwateredwomen #womenoftheword #christianblogger #christianwomen #christians #treasurechrist #joyinchrist #inchristalone #wordbeforeworld #faithblogger #blogger #intentionalliving

There is nothing that God can’t handle. Trust in Him and know that He will carry you through anything.
It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to confidently say our home is my oasis, my place of rest, my safe haven. The past couple of years have tested us, stretched us, grown us, and refined us. Home became the place where only stress and frustration lived. It’s where I would yell at God, where I would cry in self pity. But the Lord is good. I couldn’t see it as it was happening, but He knew what our future held. He knew we needed a season of waiting and watching doors close in order for us to choose to trust him fully. In order for me to fully surrender, I needed to pushed to my breaking point. But my Heavenly Father did not leave me there. He held me, and He is bringing us out of it. Home is now a place I can’t wait to rest in & can’t wait to be with my family in. Praise God for weathering life’s storms with us, going before us, and holding us. Happy Tuesday!
