Whatever your difficult and impossible circumstances are right now... look beyond and see that God is fighting for you. That He is your great defender. He is the God who sees you. He wants to open your eyes so that you can see HIM. His armies within the army of your enemy. HIS victory in the midst of your opposition. And IT IS there. But will you let Him show? Will you let Him open your eyes? — @morganbellah // If it has already been a rough week and it's only Monday, or if you just need a reminder that you have someone who sees your battles and is fighting FOR you, not against you... sweet Morgan brought an encouraging WORD on the blog today and just reading it, His love spills over. Highly recommend! [Link in profile] ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Raise your hand if you needed a bit of that encouragement this week! 🙋🏼 image: @vicbils
Hiiii, I'm @immarciamary, one of the faces behind the feed and the intern living at the @delighthouse! I first joined Delight five years ago; but when I stepped off that plane in Seattle on my way to my first #delightretreat in 2015, I never would have guessed that I would move 1,200 miles to be apart of this. ya'll JESUS IS SO GOOD. 🙌🏻 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm a hardcore introvert (literally 98% introvert on the myers brigg, also an INFJ) but people are my heart. Also a very firm believer that music should be loud and the coffee should be strong. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Being in the kitchen is my favorite place to be, even when I'm not cooking. I believe the best conversations happen on kitchen floors and when I'm cooking, I feel as though I'm experiencing more of the abundant life Jesus talks about. My heart is to serve and love people well and I know Jesus put a spatula in my hand to teach me the deep beauty of that. so if you ever can’t find me, I’m probably somewhere in a kitchen or in the candle isle of the store smelling every candle. 💁🏼 and I'd love to hear about you, so where could I find YOU if you were missing??
Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will take joy in the God of my salvation. God, the Lord, is my strength; he makes my feet like the deer's; he makes me tread on my high places. — Habakkuk 3:17-19 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ — image taken at the Spring Retreat last year! These are just part of the beautiful mountains and orchards that surround the #delightretreat. The excitement is SO real and we're basically counting the days until this year's retreat kickoff. 🎉

I love quotes. When I'm reading a book, I am constantly marking it up & underlining things that stand out to me. This quote by @jennieallen has been one of my favorite quotes because it rings so true in my life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 2009, I was diagnosed with PTSD & depression. It was a very dark time in my life. There were days that I found myself unable to find hope to live. And yet, I can say God carried me through those days and I am grateful. Because the truth is, I wouldn't be able to sit across the table from a girl who is sharing about not wanting to live anymore and truly understand. I wouldn't be able to understand a girl explain that when a pop (soda) can is opened that she feels like she's jumping out of her skin. I wouldn't be able to feel her pain if I hadn't walked through the same thing myself. I get it. The darkest, most painful time in my life has given me my greatest passion- to see young women to walk in truth, know how much their Father loves them, and find freedom that only comes from Him. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So be encouraged right now. If you are in a battle, if you are dealing with pain & suffering in your life, if you are struggling to understand the why, if you are just weary and worn out... God could be preparing you for the greatest victory of your life that will lead to your deepest passion! Rest and trust. He knows what He is doing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #nohandshakesinheaven, ― Momma Wall
