so here goes... I'M STARTING MY OWN BIBLE STUDY! this is the thing i've been working on, praying over, + prepping for all summer that i've been dying to share!!! i've felt the Lord call me to lead + encourage women my whole life-- which is why i'm thrilled to finally be starting @liveloveddd! i've always wanted a different type of bible study-- one that lets me be myself, but also helps me grow. one that lets me put my walls down, but doesnt encourage me in my sin. one that teaches me the things i want to know-- real life issues that college girls struggle with. one that doesn't stray away from the hard topics. one that, above all, points me to Jesus and His truths every week. and i've never found that-- so i'm creating it. if you're like me and you've never found a bible study that felt just right, i would love it if you gave this a chance. it's going to be something new (for you and for me!), and it has the opportunity to be something really special. regardless if you're a freshman or a senior, a pastor's kid or an unbeliever, a sorority girl or an independent, you name it-- you will be welcomed at liveloved. this bible study is going to be about what YOU want to learn about-- and you can hear more about that at our first meeting. ;) for now, dates and times are to be announced! but be prepared to learn about just how much God loves you, and how you can use that to better every part of your life. for more details on LL and what my prayer is for this bible study, i wrote a blog post going into more detail about everything! the link is in my bio! i am looking so forward to our first bible study and i cannot wait to meet you!♡
r e m i n d e r — we can do amazing things ((when we root ourselves in Jesus.)) the fact that Jesus himself said we would do even greater works than these after he was resurrected is UN. REAL. 😱 praise God for giving us courage to try new things, + the peace that comes with them, because of >>HIS
living in the moment. this is something i struggle with IMMENSELY. i'm constantly thinking of the future-- graduation, getting a job, getting married, fill in the blank. i stress out about things i can't control. WHY do i do this? why don't i let God do His job + work through me? why do i work so hard on scheduling out my future when God already has my whole life planned? the other day i was reading through my bible + came across psalm 40:5. many, Lord my God, are the wonders You have done, the things You planned for us. it was one of those rare moments where scripture pops out from the page and hits you in a way that takes your breath away. it was such a simple + sweet, sweet reminder from a loving Father. He has plans for each and every one of us. His plans are to prosper us, and not harm us. He is working, even when we don't see it. learning to trust in His timing is something i'm not good at, but life sure does seem a lot sweeter when i do. // memphis friends-- have @allyperkins take your pictures! she is a total joy to be around and an AMAZING photographer!

you are good, good, oh, oh. (if you haven't heard king of my heart, i highly recommend you do so asap.) let me be real with you for a sec--making Him the king of my heart above all else is really, really tough. i run to others, i run to earthly pleasures, i run to my own abilities far too often. all the while, i have Jesus standing there with arms wide, waiting for me to fall into HIM and HIS love. He SHOULD be the mountain where i run, the fountain i drink from.. but i'm stubborn & i try to figure it out on my own terms. maybe, just maybe, He doesn't want me to figure out my life just yet. maybe He has things far greater planned for me than i could plan for myself. & maybe it's time i start running to HIM more. i want to run towards Him like i ran when i was a child-- wind through my hair, running as quickly as my little feet will take me. running without thought of anything coming in my path; running without growing weary; running, smiling so big my cheeks hurt & laughing joyously for no particular reason. but i'm human, & i struggle. but i know that when i'm not running towards Him, He is always chasing me. & He is holding on. He is good, good, oh, oh. (oh & if you missed my blog post yesterday on insecurity check it out!)
girl, listen to me. you are marvelously loved, and there is nothing accidental about you. become less distracted by the unending cycle of comparison and insecurity, and become more captivated by who Jesus is, and what His purpose is for you. empty yourself from all of the worldly expectations and lies that weigh your heart down, and let Him fill you up with truth. • read the full post on my blog!
