✭ NEW POST! Link in bio! ✭ ••• “Pouring ourselves out to others doesn’t take anything from us—instead, it makes room in our hearts for God to pour more into us! We can’t ignore the urgency we feel to love others just because of the effort it will take to do so... follow His lead, don’t hold anything back, and watch for what incredible thing He wants to do right before your own eyes when you pour your whole heart out.”
Don’t let anything take the joy outta even your Mondayest of Mondays. 👊🏼 #itsgrindtime #mondaymotivation #nottodaysatan #aintgotnothingonme
—💙NEW POST💙— Read about what happened when someone stole from me and God told me to love them anyways. It is a battle, my friend. But allowing this incomprehensible kind of love triumph over the hate/anger is the most efficient way to turn the tables on the enemy and show him who’s BOSS. 💪🏼 #canttouchthis #bringit #letlovewin #Godsgotyou • “That’s what this battle is all about...It’s fighting for grace even for those who we think least deserve it. It’s fighting to hear God speak clearly, instead of allowing selfish thoughts to drown Him out. It’s fighting for love even in the midst of anger and disappointment.” [link in bio!]
Been jamming to @francescamusic’s new album non-stop for the past month!!! The whole thing is an absolute masterpiece, but “Defender” still gives me chills every time I listen. • I don’t know about you, but I get so caught up in trying to figure everything out for myself. My most recent post for the blog explained that in detail (link in bio) but I find that this is such a pattern in my life. A habit that I’m working on breaking. Because the truth of the matter is: even when I think I know what I’m doing, I don’t. When I think I got things under control, they’re actually on the verge of exploding. When I think I know where I’m going, I’m two steps away from being lost. When I think my life is settled, it’s usually one move away from unraveling. • That’s why this song hits home: “You go before I know that You’ve even gone to win my war. You come back with the head of my enemy. You come back and You call it my victory”—this couldn’t be closer to the truth. While we’re miles behind thinking we’ve got the map to our destiny, He’s already over the hill and through the woods clearing the path and fighting off anything that might stand in our way. Yet, when we reach our destination, He still stands on the sideline cheering us on, as if we did it all by ourselves. When in reality, we would’ve never made it if it hadn’t been for His preparation, guidance, and grace before we even started walking the path. • Hallelujah, great Defender. It’s so much better Your way. ♡
✰ new post!!! Link in bio! ✰ It can sometimes be so. hard. to trust that God really does have His hand in everything and a better plan for me up His sleeve. I sometimes even catch myself putting my plans vs. His plans in the boxing ring. ••• But the good news is, there’s nothing we could do to keep God from pursuing us in our messiness, or in our times of arguing over whose plan is better than whose. ••• Simply by embracing Him and His power over all circumstances and by trusting that He knows best and only wants the best for you, you are seen as ‘fit’ in His eyes. Trust Him with even the small things and watch what He’ll do.
When sidewalks speak... you should listen 💥 #getitgirl #todaysyourday #mondaymotivation
Every (single) detail will be worked into something good. ••• even when the going gets tough, even when you don’t understand, even when it doesn’t make sense. This is a promise you can be sure of!!! ♡
God has flipped my entire world upside down since the day in 2015 when He gave me the words “A Simple Hallelujah”. He's made so many of my biggest, wildest dreams come true and He's given me such vision for the future He has for me. • I've learned that it really is just a simple “Hallelujah!” of surrender and worship from your lips to His ears that can unlock the power of His love to give your deepest pain a purpose and reveal the earth-shaking more that you were made for. • Now there’s no part of me that will settle because I’ve heard Him clearly say to me, “You were made for more than this” and you... yeah, you reading this right now were too.
