We don't owe this old do-it-yourself life one red cent. There's nothing in it for us, nothing at all. The best thing to do is give it a decent burial and get on with your new life. God's Spirit beckons, there are things to do and places to go. I want to live in a spacious, free life this year. And that freedom only comes from the release, the surrender. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When we remember our past years, we remember that the Lord always surprises us with something new, something different than we expect. His provision looks different. I was reading the memoir Remember God by @anniefdowns a few weeks ago, and I loved the way she illustrated the manna God provided for the Israelites in the Wilderness. “Manna” in the Hebrew literally means “What is it?” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The people of God who doubted His provision, were fed time and time again by what is it? and they were satisfied. The beauty of the surprises of God. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ God can satisfy our souls in ways we can’t expect, measure or calculate. God satisfies us and it confounds us and leaves us speechless and amazed. When we release into Christ, we see that His arms always hold us. His grace always carries us. And His vision exceeds our vision. — @kerrilynnephotography, on the blog // sharing her heart & word for 2019 ⚡️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To read the full article: the link is in our bio!👆 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you have a word chosen for 2019???

Love is the only way. — Martin Luther King Jr. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today as your feeds are filled with words from a man who impacted hundreds of lives and became a voice for thousands who didn't have a voice- remember as we honor Dr. King, that he didn't start out as Dr. King. He simply was a man who was willing to be used by God. His message wasn't new, he simply chose to use his voice to echo the words of Jesus. So why are we celebrating Dr. King today? Because he choose to live out the same call that you have on your life- TO LOVE. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When we choose to radically live out the call of the gospel, it changes hearts, lives, and even a nation. Now, it might not always look the same way, you may never have a US Holiday established in your name... but we challenge you today, don't allow yourself to just scroll past or reshare a quote, jump on a bandwagon and not be changed. Choose love. Love radically. Love in word and in action. For as 1 Peter 4:8 says, Above everything, love one another deeply, because love covers over many sins. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And in other words, as our friend @bobgoff says: “Love is never stationary. In the end, love doesn't just keep thinking about it or keep planning for it. Simply put: love does.” ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Image: @stephanienunley | #delightretreat
Creativity is not limited by artistic ability; creativity goes beyond a paintbrush or a guitar. It is problem-solving, connecting, presenting, mothering, inventing, etc. Creativity is the business woman who so beautifully balances work and life, the mother who problem solves and creates minute-to-minute in order to cultivate a home of love for her children, the consultant who has the admirable gift and art of conversation and connection. The writer, the musician, the poet, and the painter lie in the same green pasture as equals with these professions. God created all of us in His image: creators. — Michelle Enriquez from her article in Volume 3 of the #delightandbemagazine, Called To Be Creative ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of our favorite articles in volume 3 is this article by @wanderbyhand. Not only is she an INCREDIBLE artist (seriously, go follow her work right now because she is GIFTED!), but she shared about WHY we are #calledtocreate. And let me tell ya'll, her words sink deep. this is our heartbeat. 💗 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We'd love to have a conversation about this, so AS CREATIVES: why do you create? and how do you create in your life? 👇 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⚡️p.s. If you're looking to read Michelle's full article, volume 3 is in stock in our shop, just head to the link in our bio!
In order to defeat the lies of the Enemy, you've got to be knowledgeable enough to combat the things He says. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If I don’t know my enemy, how will I fight against him? Wisdom means to have experience, knowledge, and good judgement. So how will I have knowledge if I don’t seek Him to supply me with what I need? How will I get experience if I don’t use the things God's given me? Becoming wise doesn't have anything to do with the amount of Scripture you read. If you don't apply it to your life and learn and grow, you'll continue to just read words on a page. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I believe that God is speaking to you today wanting you to realize that you’ve got an enemy and the only way you’ll defeat him is to learn how he attacks. — @myrandaburkholder | ON THE BLOG THIS WEEK ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Full post is in the link in our profile!
