-day 3- Today I simply want you to study + meditate on these verses that the Lord is speaking over you. To help you apply these truths to your daily life, I have designed some free printables for you! First, hang up this very familiar verse from Zephaniah in your prayer corner or on your mirror to…

soar

Picture a hawk soaring up in the sky, high above the trees, all the way up past the clouds. Picture what happens when you cast a shadow on the wall; the closer you are to the source of light, the broader your shadow.

We are created in the image of God. In His likeness. (Gen 1:27) If you look at the direct translation of that word, likeness, it more literally means shadow. We are the only creatures that are made to resemble God. To be so much like Him that we could be unmistakably recognized as His children, His family, His representatives, by the rest of His creation. Just like a shadow is not the object it is portraying itself, but an illusion of it. We are not God, but we are made to remind everything of Him

Self-love

we cannot love others the way God desires us to if we do not first know how to love ourselves…They love themselves but they are without love. How is that possible? Because a selfish love isn’t true love at all…If God loves you enough to forgive you, you must learn to forgive yourself. If He sees you as His beautiful bride, whom He dearly loves and is eagerly waiting for, shouldn’t you see yourself as He does? You are His beloved and He wants the absolute best for you. But you must first want His best for yourself.  

worthless

I have struggled with self-worth and identity for almost as long as I can remember. This issue of self-hatred is so prevalent today and though many claim that it is of God, just looking at the culture of self-hate and harm that surrounds us proves the opposite. This is exactly what the Devil wants us to believe. I am worthless. I can’t do anything right. I’m a horrible person. I am unlovable. I am a failure.

Let Go + Simply Live

I don’t like the thought of being controlled by anything but the Spirit of God. There are so many things that influence us constantly– so many people who have access and input into our existence. People who leave their fingerprints on our minds and manipulate how we live our lives. Spiritual forces of good and evil…

Chase the Whisper

Love One Another Deeply: rice love

Path

Continuing thoughts on our adventure of life // The path that we choose can either be long and arduous, twisting, turning, but seemingly easy, or straight and inclining all the way. It can be a combination of all of them. But it will never be none of them. Whatever journey you choose, we are all…

Adventure

NOW RELEASING THE ADVENTURE COLLECTION // more info    I think we all crave some sort of “adventure”. I know at the very least that we deeply crave purpose and meaning. And I also know that few find the true Path to that fulfillment. Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. His Way…

Gratitude + Giving

I’m not sure exactly what I’ve mentioned about Nepal on here honestly (if anything), but let me just state that in this moment, that is where I feel called to be–though I’ve never stepped foot on Nepali soil. But today, I’m not here to talk about me, I’m here to promote a spirit of generosity…

Season’s Change

It seemed fitting to document the beginning of a new month this way. Words from one season poured out into the next. Periodically I look back over my recent past to see if I’m making progress, if my metamorphosis is still intact. It is. I am still changing. Growing in grace, by His grace. Often…

Simply Live: reset

Minimalism. Mindfulness. Simplicity. These are all catch-phrases in our day. Want to know why? Just read my last post and I think you’ll feel the angst that has proceeded all of our technological and industrial advances all too well. When you think back to the way God Himself created the world and where He placed…
