Kids to bed followed by sky, water, the sound of birds, and my feet hitting the ground again ❤️. Jog/running feels both awful and spectacular after this long, short week. The main reason I'm glad to have gone out is because I am always amazed by how I feel like I can see and feel the reality of God a little bit better when there is only open space between me and the sky. "The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail." Isaiah 58:11
you only get one life, what’re you gonna do with it? will you spend your days living for yourself or spend them purposely lifting up others? will you have all the material things in this world, or buy your homeless brother/sister a meal? will you be afraid to offend, or step out and pray over someone who needs a miracle? if I have learned anything from studying Jesus this week, it’s that we have one life to live. so what’re we gonna do with it? . . . . . #jesus #inspiration #wellwateredwomen #faith #bedeeplyrooted #motivation #thatsdarling #christianwomen #christian #quotestoliveby #inspirationalquotes #jesuschrist #christianblogger #quotestagram #faithblogger #bible #love #biblestudy #quotes #fashionblogger #christianquotes #lifestyleblogger #shereadstruth #god #womenintheword #beautyblogger #instagramblogger #instablogger #blogger #christianliving

Your attitude toward your partner is basically the thoughts and feelings you have toward him/her. But know that your “opinion” of your partner (and the feelings this opinion generates) can change very easily with specific interactions, gestures, words or actions. It is easy to slip into believing that your attitude is simply the reaction to how your partner treats you. In fact, I recently saw a bumper sticker that said, “My attitude is the result of your actions, so if you don’t like it then blame yourself!” But the truth about attitudes is that no one can create or change your attitude but yourself. It comes from your perspective—how you put together the pieces of your partner. You are the artist and your mental portrait of your partner is painted by you. You decide what to highlight, and what to place in the shadows; what to bring to the forefront, and what to put in the background. Your partner may be responsible for his or her words and actions, but you are responsible for what you do with them. When you want to make your attitude toward your partner better then try and follow these three simple steps. First, reflect on the positive ways your partner has treated you both recently and in the past. Hunt for the good and unearth the buried treasures of the thoughtful and meaningful ways your partner has acted toward you. Second, think about your partner’s strengths. Sometimes, these strengths have come to rub you the wrong way because they are opposite of your strengths. But yet, they were often the very qualities that attracted you in the beginning years. So remember what you have appreciated about your partner and how their strengths compliment you. Finally, go a step further and look for how your partner’s strengths actually make your life better. Then express this to him or her. What do they add to your perspective? What tasks do they take off your plate? How do they help you, give to you, and provide for you? Take time to be thankful for the unique strengths of your partner and how they enrich and bless your experience of life. . From @mylovethinks, who will be speaking at our upcoming conference!
Tugged heart strings today as I watched, played, loved and felt every ounce of everything. It’s so important to feel, to let ourselves embrace the emotion inside of us. To release the hard things and let the healing take place. To feel joy, in all of the small things that make life beautiful. Today, my decaf coffee spilled in the bathroom at target, all over the floor. I have already had a hard week, and I chose to shake it off and apologize to the employee who was about to clean it up. As I walked out, the kindest woman stopped me and said, “don’t let that bother you, it happens. You don’t need to worry about what you can’t control.” This applied to so many life situations this week and I’m grateful for the tender reminder, that this life is so rich, and little mishaps don’t matter. Five years from now, it won’t matter, and thankfully that’s how most situations are. 💛 We played our hearts out today in the sun, free as a bird, eating frozen blueberries and read about the solar system. I love my people and I’m so thankful they love me.
Today is Day 1! poorly lit, because our dear sun has gone down for the day. This is my favorite verse from today. What a beautiful prayer it can be turned into. Lord help me to feel strong conviction when taking the path of sinners or when being a mocker. Lord teach me to find my joy in reading Your word!! Create a desire in me to meditate on it day and night. Lord give me the grace and strength to maintain a steady focus on You through all the fluctuations and uncertainties of the days ahead. I love You so much.
The two greatest commandments: love God, love people. 💜
Earlier I read @lyndenhight’s latest beautifully written post about how her life has kind of gotten a film over it and God wants to bring back out her vibrant colors. She said she’ll be reading the Bible cover to cover in 70 days. I read that and thought “wow that’s really good for her. I’d love to do that too but maybe when school’s over.” But that doesn’t even make sense because after school is over I’ll be working full time just as many hours. We live in our future, always thinking “oh I’ll ___ when ___” but when is that time actually going to come?? Anyways I just want you to know that I’ve never read the Bible cover to cover, but I intend to by December 31st. If you’re waiting for the perfect moment to dedicate yourself to reading the Bible cover to cover, choose now!!! There is no better moment than right now to surrender that time to Him. I can’t think of anyone more deserving to make time for than my own Creator, and I pray that you feel the same!! We can do it!
“No matter what you do, or how much you give you will never be ENOUGH for some.” Accept that. Walk and focus on your own path. Be polite. Be kind. Be Godly. Be fair. Be loving. Be caring . . . #theonlywayisup #godschild #onlygodcanjudgeme #believeinyourself #california #winning #selflove #beachday #wellness #holistic #healthy #proverbs31woman #wellwateredwomen #colossians #galatians #fruitofthespirit #faith #spiritual #godfirst #photooftheday #nutrionist #latina #hispanicsbelike #communityovercompetition #bethechange #godsplan #praisethelord #ohsheglows #glow #pray
We have more strength in us than we think. We were created that way. We were created to feel every emotion to its most intense form so that we can appreciate the joy after we go through pain, to understand the growth we go through after hardships and to know that we have been given a soul which is watered by the greatest love of all. . . . Happy Easter everyone!
Today my husband was off and I was determined that tonight was going to be different in our home. Most days are just crammed with an unending mental "To Do" list that never seems to shorten, but today...I wanted to have dinner ready earlier than usual and enjoy some quiet family time while we talked about some things that Jesus wanted to make sure we remembered forever. I didn't want to rush through it! I wanted to relish in it! Oh how my tired soul prayed for it! Even though I had tons of work left to do, a dirty house glarring at me, a sweet tired husband working just as hard as I am, and a wonderful little boy watching our every move and wanting us to stop and play...the Lord did it! He answered my prayer. I prayed He would give me the longevity to finish dinner early, put on some quiet instrumental worship, light some candles and have a special meal together. The 3 of us were together in a sweet fellowship of remembrance. I often do these lessons with my son in mind...but often times I'm the one who needs them the most. I NEEDED to sit in the stillness and think of what we were remembering tomorrow. He was broken. He was poured out. Tonight was as if my soul sprouted arms to desperately reach my Father in Heaven and...REMEMBER...and He...embraced me. 😊

“so they said to one another, “Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it to see whose it shall be.” This was to fulfill the Scripture which says, “They divided my garments among them, and for my clothing they cast lots.” ~John 19:24 ESV Jesus was on the cross when the soldiers cast lots for his garments. As I think about this and how he must of felt. Its sad we still do this today maybe not cast lots but we do like all the goodness of Christ just not always believing and trusting in Him. I am guilty. I have only wanted pieces of Jesus and then not allowing Him into all of my life. You know, the times we go through the motions of “church” but have no real devotion to God or taking your life and sectioning off parts of it so not we don’t put God in the middle of that part because we really like how it’s going. We aren’t surrendering to His authority and trusting in Him. The soldiers and the people mocked Jesus and didn’t actually believe in Him but they wanted His garments. We always want what looks good and feels good don’t we? My prayer is that we would not pick up pieces of Jesus that work for us or feel good right now but surrender our whole life to the King! 🙌🏻 Love Jesus more than anything! . . . #holyweek #knitthegospelintoyourheart #handmadeknitsbytracy
1John 4:18 . Day 16 of #30daysofbiblelettering . . “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us. By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. By this is love perfected with us, so that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as he is so also are we in this world. There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. We love because he first loved us. -1 John 4:7-19 (ESV) . Brothers and sisters, we don’t need to fear punishment because God’s perfect love ensures and gives us confidence on the day of judgement. .

If sisters are different flowers from the same garden, I hope these two always stay grounded in their roots while growing strong toward the sun. . May they be quick to forgive and give the benefit of the doubt. May they remember their unique beauty and talents never compete with one anothers. And may they always stand strong to shelter the other when life’s storms blow through. . In this garden of parenthood, may I remember that though I plant the seeds, it’s only the Lord who makes them grow.

🌿As Jesus and his disciples leave the Passover feast, let's follow at a distance. We descend into the Kidron Valley east of the city, and climb the Mount of Olives, winding between the Olive trees that cover this hill. Jesus stops, turns to his friends, and asks them to pray that they would not fall into temptation. Then he moves further into the garden and falls on this knees in prayer. Soon, the snores of his friends float across the hillside. Even more, Jesus pour his heart out to His Father. We tiptoe closer to hear his very words…"yet not my will, but yours be done," we catch on the breeze as we get closer. He is sweating. He seems in complete anguish. Eventually he rises seeming strengthened and wakes his sleeping companions, again urging them to pray that they will not fall into temptation. . 🌿I cannot imagine what that night must have been like for Jesus. Knowing that he'd suffer and die in the next hours, must have torn at his human heart. Knowing his closest friends would abandon him and leave him all alone with his accusers. Knowing that he would be the innocent sacrifice for the sin of the world at his death. Knowing he would take all the wrath God has on sin on his own pure shoulders. Knowing he'd experience separation from God for the first time in his life. The night in the Garden of Gethsemane so clearly shows Jesus' human heart and Godly will. . 🌿Jesus, thank you for being willing to be real, to suffer knowingly for our freedom. Thank you for enduring such suffering because your love of us and the Father were so very deep. Thank you for showing us an example of submitting to God's plans even when we don't enjoy them. Help us to be more like you when we face struggles in our lives. . . . . . #dailydevotional #holyweek #passionweek #biblereading #wellwateredwomen #passionofthechrist #passionweek #easterdevotional #womenintheword #womensbiblestudy #shereadstruth #shewritestruth #biblelettering #biblejournaling #prayerwarrior

Thank you for writing this guest post for Agape Moms Kirstin Berger! Captivating our kids' hearts with Christ on Easter is no small task, but Kirstin gives us some great resources and simple ideas to inspire you this weekend. Hope it blesses your family as you celebrate our risen and living Savior! ✨✨✝️👦🏼👶🏻🧒🏾✨✨ "As a pretty non-crafty mom, I’ve struggled with teaching my kids the Easter story in a tangible way that holds their attention. I mean, how do we explain, even to adults, what Jesus accomplished on the cross? As moms, we must learn to explain to our children that we celebrate His birth at Christmas because on Easter, he died a gruesome death as a sacrifice for our sins and then rose again, conquering death, and proving He is who He says He is. This is no small task! Of course Scripture is the best way to teach about God, so reading from a children’s Bible or family Bible seems obvious, but what if are kids aren’t auditory learners? And even if they are, they still probably need the Easter story reinforced in different ways so that it overcomes the distractions of the world. First things first, we need to take a deep breath and take these things to God in prayer. He gave us these children as a blessing to us and He designed us to bless them with His Truth and Love. Ask Him how you can best teach them about the Easter story. I will share some of the things that have worked for us..." 👉🏼Hop on over to the Agape Moms Blog to read more, link in profile. 💫 https://www.agapemoms.online/the-agape-moms-blog/2019/4/18/captivating-kids-with-jesus-on-easter https://www.agapemoms.online/the-agape-moms-blog/2019/4/18/captivating-kids-with-jesus-on-easter

Lest I forget Gethsemane⠀ Lest I forget Thine agony⠀ Lest I forget Thy love for me⠀ Lead me to Calvary⠀ ⠀ Lord, teach me to trust You in the Gethsemanes of my life. In the moments where I feel unseen and forgotten. In the moments where I dread the thing I must do. In the moments where I feel discouraged. Help me to be present to You in the place that you've put me, and to embrace it with joyful perseverance knowing that whatever private sorrow I feel, You have felt and known it too.⠀ ⠀ // hymn by Jennie Evelyn Hussey in 1921⠀ // reflection and art by @lauramakessomething ⠀ ⠀ #HolyThursday #BISsisterhood #projectblessed
Small changes make a difference, friends! @whogivesacraptp makes amazing products that are free of dyes and fragrance while also being a bamboo based product.

”Sowing To The Spirit: The Parables of Matthew 13” by W.A. Willis, as its blurb says, is a manual for Christian discipleship. It explains the Lord Jesus’ purpose for His eight parables in Matthew 13 and how it relates to the discipleship process. It has been more than 3 months since I first started reading this book which I got from last year's MIBF. I would love to say that I understood everything on it but no, I didn't. A re-reading is still necessary. And then, there's the application - a journey that will be difficult but I know will prove worthwhile in the end. Let me share a quote from this book, W.A.Willis said, ”Discipleship is mandatory if we are to be transformed and changed from the likeness of those in this world to those in God's image, transformed into new creatures in Christ who are being sanctified, growing in the knowledge and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.” May we all desire and commit to this process of transformation. 📚📚📚 . . . . . #inspiredandintentionalliving #intentionaldiscipleship #discipleship #sowingtothespirit #parablesofmatthew13 #musings #thoughts #wellwateredwomen #shereadstruth #books #readingwithLady #bookworm
With Easter coming up in a few days, now more than ever, I’m completely caught up in the last few days of His life, tearing through the end of each gospel, desperate to hear the story. Again and again and again. . I’m looking for the details I may have missed. And He meets me there every time. He reveals the new I was searching for. Every single time. . Was he just a nice guy? A brilliant prophet? A good teacher? Who was this Jesus? And what does his resurrection have to do with me, a 30-something living in Dallas 2000 years after it took place? ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ #juliehillsblog #faithblogger #christianblogger #butfirstjesus #sundayiscoming #resurrection
Oh golly, let’s talk fears. Such a vulnerable thing to post about- we all have them, I like to avoid them, but the truth is facing them is the way to get from afraid to ‘I’ve got this’. Maybe? I’m still working at it. Being in front of an Instagram story freaks me out. Talking to people makes me sweat. But community is where my heart beats the best. And inviting others into my life and sharing the things I love makes me the happiest. That’s probably why I fear the worst will happen when I do it. Created to do great things? We all are, friend. And I’m here to remind you that the smallest things are usually the greatest things. I believe in you and we’ve got this. Let’s find what strikes our hearts, lock arms, and move forward💗
It’s been a minute but I’ve got a new post up #ONTHEBLOG today, and this one’s for anyone who feels the lives of everyone around them are progressing in the ways they want, when theirs isn’t. For anyone who feels overlooked, passed-by, forgotten by God. — I’ll let you see what I have to say in the post but for now here’s a snippet: “If Scripture is any indication, the very areas of our lives we feel forgotten by God in, are the very parts of our story He is going to use the most significantly in His.” 💛 Tag someone who needs to read this! 📸: @marisaruthphotography
💓What does doxology even mean? It comes from two Greek words: doxa which means glory and lagas which means to say or a word or a saying. As you study Scripture you see that doxology comes in response to God's glorious work on man's behalf. 💓When you think about the benefits of salvation...when you think about all that God has provided for us: forgiveness which rescues us from this perishing evil age, saving truth which leads us to deliverance and salvation, eternal life and all spiritual blessings possible throughout all eternity and in the eternal realm. AND... salvation brings to us all we need in this life to become what God wants us to be! (which is to grow in holiness=being conformed to the image of Christ) The only possible reaction is doxology!!! 💓May a doxology be always in my heart. Always in my mind and even on my lips! May it rise from deep within as I constantly think about salvation. And though one day I will draw my last breath, I know I will go on praising God forever and ever!!! 💓Word Became Flesh Shop has a "Doxology" wall banner that would be a BEAUTIFUL MOTHER'S DAY GIFT!!! 💓TAG A FRIEND 💓SHOP FOR HER AT THE LINK IN THE BIO⬆️⬆️⬆️⬆️
Who do you surround yourself with? It’s hard not to be influenced by your surroundings whether you like it or not. Don’t make excuses for someone that makes you feel bad about yourself! One of the best things you can do for yourself is fill your life with people that bring you joy. Sure, the Negative Nancy’s aren’t always avoidable, but it’s worth trying to weed out the bad influences. Life is tough enough as is. Also— don’t be a Negative Nancy please 🌻 you have value and a purpose. Don’t overshadow that with negativity 🌞

“Aren’t you one of Jesus’ disciples?” John 18:16 Later this afternoon, in our community’s Good Friday service, I will read this one line. When we were practicing, I was told I had to place myself in the story. There is much emotion in the situation. An accused man is bound and brought to the High Priest. Simon Peter and another disciple followed but Peter was left outside the gate. The other disciple went to speak to the maid who was guarding the gate. When she let Peter in, she accused, “You are not one of this man’s disciples, are you?” She probably squinted at him in the darkness, the only light coming from the fire where the slaves and guards were warming themselves. She wasn’t merely curious. If she was in the employ of the High Priest, she was on his side, and anyone against him was suspect. What was this man, Simon Peter, about? He better be careful because she was watching him. But Peter’s immediate reaction was, “No, I am not this man’s disciple!” What would our reaction be? If we were in the middle of a crowd of non- believers? If, like a friend of mine, we were invited to an unsavory place by an important client of our company? If, like my grandfather, we had the opportunity to choose any valuable property we wanted? He was a clerk in city hall, but he did not grab at the chance, knowing it was wrong. Everyday we are given the opportunity to show Jesus and the world that we are His disciples. To love or to be indifferent. To be kind or to be petty. To be generous or to keep what we have for ourselves. To stand up for what is right or to be silent in the face of injustice. To serve or to be selfish. If someone has to ask, “Are you one of Jesus’ disciples?”, that means we are standing outside the gate, wavering. Let us make sure everyone knows on whose side we are.
Selah bedtime: 7pm. Brooke bedtime: 8pm. Malakai bedtime: 9pm. And then Lola, Matt and I sit on the couch for a bit until we’re too tired to talk anymore. Mom & Dad bedtime: 10pm. Tomorrow we’ll do it all again! This crazy thing called life can feel like a rat race, but when we really slow down and look around, the finger prints of God are everywhere. In the laughter, in the arguments, in the snuggles and busy days. “For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible, rank after rank of angels—everything got started in Him and finds its purpose in Him.” Colossians 1:16 Enjoyed sharing my day with you! I pray it was an encouragement to you 💕
I haven’t posted in a little over a week. Not because I have nothing to say, but because the words just won’t come out. I’m over analyzing everything and honestly letting both fear and procrastination hold me back. I love this space. I love writing. I love reading what other people write. But I can’t get out of my own head enough to thoroughly enjoy it. So it’s a work in progress. I am a work in progress. There is so much that I could say right now, but I think I’ll save it so I have something to post another day. 😉 Until then, tell me in the comments something that is holding you back right now.
Serving his sister ice cream. I knew Thaddeus would make a good big brother, but he’s actually better than I imagined and surprises me with how he watches over her. I see these two becoming very close in the years to come. 😊💛
Thought this would be a convicting question as well as an opportunity to get to know some of you. Feel free to share your answer in the comments below 🥰👍🏻
If it was easy to build wealth, everyone would do it. If it was easy to be a great wife, everyone would do it. If it were easy to be the best mom in the world, everyone would do it. But here is the thing Sis, ANYTHING WORTH HAVING WONT BE EASY TO ATTAIN. . . . Do you want more money? Work harder and smarter. Do you want to go deeper into your relationship with God? It’s going to require sacrifice from selfish desires. . . . I think that there is a spiritual aspect of preparation. That’s the hardest part of going to the “next level”. All the preparation. So the next time you’re overwhelmed with the next step, remember, the preparation come BEFORE the harvest. That applies to your business, finances, marriage difficulties, and your walk with God. He honors our preparation. Will it be easy? NOPE. Worth it? ABSOLUTELY. . . . #quoteoftheday #dailyquotes #christianlifecoach #christianlifestyle #christianquotes #christianquotesdaily #faithbloggers #faithblogger #christianentrepreneur #womeninbusiness #christianwomeninbusiness #wellwateredwoman #wellwateredwomen #faithgirl #jesusgirls #leadwithlove #progressoverperfection #joyinthejourney #thepointedlife #pastorswife #pastorswifelife #honorgod #godisgood

No matter what your goal is, or where you are in your journey right now (starting out, in the thick of it, or reached your goal), there is one thing that helps make all of it possible, and maintainable. ⠀⠀ Consistency. ⠀⠀ Now hear me out- I know what you're thinking. ⠀⠀ "yeah, yeah, I know you have to do something for a while for it to stick" ⠀⠀ and you're right, but it is much deeper than that. ⠀⠀ You fall off the wagon because: •you are choosing goals that don't resonate with them •you are using a strategy or approach that is extreme, or just not fitted for them •you don't find a plan they truly enjoy •you don’t find a plan that is realistic to stick with ⠀⠀ And it makes it reaaaally hard to stay consistent with something you don't like, or that doesn't work (been there, done that). ⠀⠀ But when you find something that DOES work, and that you DO like: wow. ⠀⠀ I have seen my clients lightbulb go off when they found an exercise style and eating habits something they genuinely enjoyed and could stick with. ⠀⠀ No extremes. No drastic changes. ⠀⠀ And when you are: 💕consistent with things you enjoy 💕consistent with things that are realistic 💕consistent with your actions and behaviors.. ⠀⠀ that's when the magic happens and you start to see the results you DESERVE 🙌🏼 ⠀⠀ If you want to dive deeper into this and find out how I achieve balance and consistency with my lifestyle, and teach my clients to do the same, I created a 5 day free kickstart called “Achieving Balance” which helps you go into this summer a healthier and happier version of yourself. ⠀⠀ I’ve worked on this for WEEKS and I have made sure that it will provide amazing value to help you in your journey, for free. ⠀⠀ Prizes, support, accountability, coaching, fun, and new programs are happening April 29-May3rd! ⠀⠀ Sign up through the link in my bio, and get your friends in it with you! 🎊
Hello sweet friends! The In His Image collection is quickly approaching and I thought that it would be fun to make an “in His image” playlist on Spotify for everyone to listen along to in their quest to discover their worth in Christ. Is this something you’d be interested in? If so- comment a couple songs that help remind you of your worth in Christ, and I’ll put some of the songs on our playlist! . #L4Linhisimage coming May 10th
Ladies. This one’s for you. 💁🏼♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We can spend so much time picking out the perfect outfit, getting our hair, nails & eyebrows done and doing our daily skincare routine to make us look beautiful. 😍⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But no amount of makeup can mask an ugly heart. 💔⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And I know that sounds harsh. But isn’t it the truth? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I say this knowing I’ve been there before. Making myself look good but harbouring bitterness, unforgiveness and being mad on the inside. That stuff isn’t pretty. And it can come out in ugly ways. 🤮 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although you probably don’t want to admit it... I think you can relate. 😉 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I wonder what would happen if we committed as much time to looking after our souls as we look after our outward appearance? ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Making our hearts healthy so we exude every good thing - peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness and self-control. 🍇 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Because goodness knows, the world doesn’t need more ugly hearts, it needs hearts of gold. 💛 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I‘m dedicated to making my heart prettier than my face. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Are you with me? 🙋🏼♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷: @milkhoneycreative
D A N I • There’s a lot to say about this Lady, but IG has a character limit 🙄. Ever since we decided that we would be friends, after a whole semester of avoiding each other, my life has changed for the better! We’ve celebrated SEVERAL highs and lows through tears, laughter, and every other emotion in between. It seems like we can only manage to live close to each other for two years max before we go back to having a long distance relationship but our bond laughs in the face of distance because it ain’t nothin’ but a flight! // SHE is a part of my COMMUNITY so I don’t have to live SILENT. // She is a Speech Language Pathologist.

As the woman who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to what he said rather than helping clean or do the chores, Mary understood the relational aspect of hosting much more than Martha seemed to.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I hope to be like this, to host as Mary would.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I want to be fully attentive to my guests’ hearts and really hear what they have to say because we never truly know what someone could be struggling with. Whether it be shame, loneliness, fear, you name it. We all struggle with something. Most of us are pretty good at hiding, but I believe intentional hospitality is one of the best tools to break down walls and encourage authenticity.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ More from Katie on how to "Host as Mary Would" on the blog this week!

• Today I facilitated a Passover Seder meal re-enactment with my 8th grade New Testament class, looking at the ceremony from a Christian perspective. A chance to reflect on the incredible significance of Jesus leading His disciples through the special meal. • Passover was a celebration of freedom. A celebration of the lamb’s blood on the doorposts leading to death passing over the Israelites. And this particular Passover meal was led by THE LAMB OF GOD who enables eternal death to pass over us and ushers in true freedom. So much significance in the remembrance… • The four cups – sanctification, deliverance, redemption, thanksgiving. Jesus changes the script taking one of the cups and says, “drink from it all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.” • The washing not only of hands, but of feet. “I have set an example that you should do as I have done for you,” Jesus says. • The antiphony response of, “it would have been enough,” when Jesus knew none of it was enough; it had to be Him; only He would be enough. He came to die. • The reciting of Psalms to close the ceremony, “The stone that the builder rejected has become the cornerstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes,” they sing Psalm 118 together from memory. • Finishing the hymns, they make their way to the Mount of Olives; to the Garden of Gethsemane. Here Jesus prays, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.” • It isn’t possible. There is no other way. If there were, God surely would have taken the cup from His Son. • Beth Moore in her Passion 2013 talk about the Last Supper points out that when we go through hard things and ask God to “take this cup from us,” we can have confidence in knowing that the only way he will leave it in our hands is if it is absolutely crucial to what we are doing on this planet.

“Let my passion for life be restored, tasting joy in every breakthrough you bring to me.” Psalms 51:12 TPT 💖 . One of the hardest parts about my anxiety this past year was how much it affected my time in community. Places and groups that once felt so life-giving were overwhelming, and I found myself in pieces before church, lifegroup, birthday parties, you name it, and often chose to stay home. But there’s been breakthrough (praise the Lord! ✨) and two months of being anxiety-attack free! . With that clarity I saw the empty space where community used to be, and almost instantly fear rose up. What if it was too hard? What if it set things off again? Couldn’t I stay at a distance? But I knew if I did that it wouldn’t be the abundant life God has for me, so that’s where Psalm 51:12 comes in. . I’m praying for JOY, not fear, to be found in His breakthrough, and that a passion for life in community to be restored. 🙌🏻 And you know what? He’s doing it! . Laughing over silly stories, digging into the deep heart places, late night sweet treats, lattes at a local favorite, and drives around pretty neighborhoods have made my heart so full. 💛 There’s really nothing like quality time with the amazing women in my life, and this week was positively blooming with it. 🙌🏻🌷✨ . #lampandlight #shereadstruth #lifelivedbeautifully #saturatedinscripture #wellwateredwomen #yourinfluence #bedeeplyrooted #gritandvirtue #livewithintention #wordbeforeworld
Here at Delight, we believe iron sharpens iron, so we encourage and challenge each other to grow in spiritual maturity. • God’s Word is true, and it’s truer than the circumstances we face & what our “reality” looks like. What he says goes, so today, during our Delight meeting we were challenged to put his Word into action. • Join us in this #Romans12 :2 challenge. Today choose to speak scripture over your life and watch it transform your situation, your perspective and your wrong beliefs. • Testimony: When I was small I was terrified, I mean terrified to sleep downstairs all by myself, but my dad is not a fan of fear soooo, he gave me a list of scriptures to read over myself OUT LOUD every night before I went to sleep. At first I thought he was crazy, but the Word never goes void. It’s powerful, alive & active. 2 weeks later, I was unafraid, and I have to sleep in a pitch black room now. 🤷♀️ • Don’t underestimate the power of scripture. Scroll through to learn more about this challenge, and to see the scriptures I used when I was in 6th grade. • Tag a friend & comment with a 🙋🏻♀️ if you plan to join! #delightministries #Word #rootedintheword #wellwateredwomen
Impromptu vid! But this is just encouragement that God is not unaware of your situation or your needs. The Holy Spirit is so good and loving and kind. Jesus left us his Spirit to help us in all kinds of trouble. And He is good to help in the big and the little things. Nothing is impossible for God. 👇🏾 leave down below what you need the Holy Spirit to help you with! • • • • • #ChristianBlogger #LampandLight #LifeLivedBeautifully #WellWateredWomen #BostonBlogger #BostonFashion #ChristianFashion #ModestFashion #ChristianGirl #BlackGirlsBlog #HaitianBlogger #GritandVirtue #SheWorksHisWay #VictoriousWoman #VictoriousWomanoftheDay
“A mother’s arms are more comforting than anyone elses.” —Princess Diana
My sister sent me a photo of an entry in my niece’s journal. This is what she wrote... she’s 11. 💖 She is a constant reminder to pay attention to what child-like faith looks like. They have less past, stories, walls and therefore more open to allowing for the miracle of God’s love and Spirit to speak and work through them. What a gift, I wanted to share it with you. 🙏🏽
