Long distance for a month & I’m just counting the days, the hours, the minutes and the seconds to see him again.
Today as we said good bye, I felt the Holy Spirit lead me to ask him: “How can I love you better during this break?” Let that sink in for a bit. A simple yet, powerful question. 
I dare you to learn how to love those around you 🖤

Been pondering this WORD for the last couple of days family 🙏🏾
.
Backdrop: When Jesus got word of Lazarus’ sickness, interestingly enough, He did not drop what He was doing. Rather, He stayed where He was and said that Lazarus’ illness would not end in death. *Okay Jesus*
.
He finally gets to the tomb where Lazarus has been dead for 4 days. Martha replies, “ if you had been here he wouldn’t have  died.” 👀
.
God proceeds to the tomb and Martha Protested “ the stench is terrible, he has been dead for 4 days.” Nevertheless, God challenged them on their faith, rolled back the stone and Lazarus stepped right out of the grave. GLORY!

Some gems I took away ✨

1. Belief proceeds the glory of God showing up in your life. Many times we want to see it then believe it , but with God He says believe it...and THEN you will see it!

2. God is a GRAVE DIGGER, and a Master at resurrecting what’s dead. Death aint’ really death when God is in the mix.

3. Don’t let grief skew your perception of how powerful God is.  Mary blamed Jesus for Lazarus’ death. His timing was off in her eyes. Little did she know that her brothers death was not final. It wasn’t  the end. You may think God is Late, but listeeennnn ! He is always RIGHT 👏🏽 ON 👏🏽TIME👏🏽 Don’t forget it! .

• Y’all I am absolutely done running away from my pain. •
Pain absolutely sucks, but it’s apart of life. If you’re alive long enough you’re going to experience. If I’m being truly honest, I hate feeling hurt. I immediately run in the opposite direction and put on a brave face so I don’t have to deal with the hurt. But this is exactly what the enemy wants. He wants to give us an immediate and temporary solution to the pain, to distract us from the pain and the eventual healing. He wants us to be stuck dealing in the consequences of unresolved pain. But friends God wants SO much more for us. He doesn’t just desire comfort for us, He desires to comfort us, bring us joy and true faith in the midst of mourning. Friends we have to be willing to go through the icky pain, to go through the mourning seasons so that after the kingdom of God works in us, it can work through us to others. When we avoid our pain, when we run away from it or try to numb it, we miss an amazing opportunity to be used by God.
-
Friends, pain is real and pain is valid. Every pain deserves a funeral and a season of mourning. Invite God to the funeral and allow Him to comfort you in the mourning, so that He can use you to comfort and walk alongside others. No one else can mourn your pain for you, but God promises you don’t have to do it alone. -
Funerals absolutely suck but they’re a part of life and no one camps out there. People mourn and then they move on. Take the time to mourn and then walk out on the other side in victory.

It's easy to praise God when everything is sunny. But if we learn to dance in the snow, how much happier will we be when spring breaks once more? ❄⛅

This past Sunday I was given the opportunity to share my story of depression and suicide. In late 2016 and early 2017 I fell into a season of deep depression and wrestled with suicidal thoughts. I truly lost my will to live, but God carried me through my lowest point and brought me through the storm. I’ve always been a bit ashamed of this season and It’s not a story I’ve ever fully opened up about to anyone before. However, I felt God calling me to trust Him and share my story and I am so glad I did. Having the opportunity to share my story is another reminder of Gods faithfulness and hand in my life. Despite this being the lowest season in my life, God promised to bring good out of it and He has. I’ve heard from several people who were impacted by my story and I am amazed at how God brings His light and floods the darkness until it is no more.
Through my (our) brokenness, God is able to bring healing to others and I am truly amazed by that. 
Friends, when Christ died on the cross He defeated every battle of depression we will ever face. Don’t give up, God can do something incredible with your story even when you’re ashamed of it.

One of my goals is to speak, to share the story I believe God has put on my heart so that I can impact others. Yesterday was the first time I openly shared this part of my life and I can’t wait to see where God leads next.

Been reflecting a lot lately about what God has done and Is still doing in my life... and y’all I’m just so thankful I serve a God who can take a mess and turn it into something beautiful.
.
This last year I had to make a conscious choice to take accountability for my own healing and personal growth. I had to do the deep work. Excuses had to die.
.
Evolving into the people God has designed us to be is not an option- it’s mandatory.  Is it hard! Yes. But All you have to do is keep putting one feet in front of the other. And God will guide you. .
You know , I once thought I needed a whole lot of faith to see the hand of God, but let me tell you something....
.

All God needs is a LITTLE....a little more trust, a little more faith, a little more surrender. He can move mountains with faith as small as a mustard seed, Saints! Y’all better praise  Him right now 🙌🏽 Here are some gems God is revealing to me  along this journey:
.
1. There is nothing that can hinder your breakthrough. NOTHING!
2. Get used to walking away from what ever does not serve you. Thoughts, relationships...it’s okay to choose YOU! 
3. No matter what you are going through know that GOD WILL GET THE GLORY.
4. You may have lost some things, but you will RECOVER IT ALL! 
5. Don’t let circumstances make you lower your expectation of God. He is GOD, not man.
.
There is a NEW DAY DAWNING, Family!

“A woman in harmony with her spirit is like a river flowing. She goes where she will without pretense and arrives at her destination prepared to be herself and only herself.” ~ maya angelou .
There is sweet joy in being YOU! There is an ease in tapping in to the truth of who you are that I can’t quite explain. So....
No more hiding.
No more dimming.
‘Tis the season to letting your light shine, sis ✨

This world will try to convince you that you can make it in your own strength. How many times have we put in extra bloood , sweat and tears  without letting God be the source of our strength?? And then we wonder why we are left unfulfilled and drained. Ummmm...this has been my story way too many times.🤦🏾‍♀️
.
I will say this: you can’t be all God intended to be or walk boldly in your calling without God at the center.  Y’all  He needs to ALWAYS be the well that we draw from without hesitation... because That’s how fulfillment manifests, when we are FILLED UP  with our Father. .

I’ve always been a relatively emotional person but growing up I always suppressed them. I thought tears were a sign of weakness, that you were messed up if you broke down crying or admitted that you were struggling. As I’ve grown up and gotten more mature in my faith I realize what a lie that was and I’m starting to be more willing to show my emotions and admit when somethings wrong. One thing I’m especially noticing as I surrender my emotions and heart to God more and more, is that He’s beginning to break my heart for the things that break His and I love it. Anytime I see a person who is crying out to God, who is broken and searching or in need of Gods love, it absolutely wrecks me. I’ve gotten some amazing opportunities to pray with people, cry with them and just comfort them as I pour out Gods love to them in the midst of their pain. It’s in this vessel of emotions that my heart for ministry and the broken has been re-sparked and affirmed. I want to lead people to the heart and comfort of God and if that means getting uncomfortable and being vulnerable than so be it. 
You see those words are more than just catchy song lyrics, they should be the prayer of every believers heart. We should be broken up by the fact so many people are hurting and broken and searching for answers. It should break our hearts enough to get us to move out of our comfort zone and support another person.
So if you’re like me and you struggle with your emotions, give it up to God and allow Him to show you the needs of His people and to give you eyes that see what He sees. Be willing to cry with people, meet them in the depths of their pain, you’ll be amazed at how God shows up.

Queens, insecurity is so real. I struggled with it most of my life, and sometimes have my moments when it tries to rear it ugly head, but  over the last few years, I’ve learned how to not let it lead my life. I’ve learned how to conquer it.

Full of so much gratitude on this Sunday morning y’all. I’m going to be honest, Sometimes I find myself giving God thanks for the BIG things has done and continues to do, but what about those small things, those small treasures. .
Like....
1. Laughing so hard your belly hurts 
2. Making trips to Starbucks to get coffee with my Dad
3. Endless conversations with my homegirls talking about absolutely random stuff... Ahhh I love my friends 🤣
4. Naps on naps on naps. 
5. Good hair days... lol. Y’all  some  days my hair be lookin’ real questionable. Lol! 
6. Silence. 
7. Completely jammin’ out to a favorite part in a song. 
8. Reading a really good book 📖 
9. Talenti ice cream
10. No traffic!
.
So what are those small things you are thankful for?! .

Do you know that it takes a pineapple approximately three years to mature? That seems like a long time—after all it is just a pineapple. How much more important are you than a pineapple? YOU, having been created in the image of God and designed with a purpose? ⠀
⠀
It may take you a little bit longer to reach the fullness of what God has in store for you, but if you’re seeking His will and walking in faith, going to be obedient to what He is asking of you, then you can be assured that it’s well worth the wait.⠀
⠀⠀⠀
God offers much wisdom in the saying, “There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under the heavens.” God is sovereign. Our activity in this world is meaningful as we rely on His wisdom, His timing, and His goodness. Accept each day as a gift from God and look to do the next right thing to serve Him and others. ⠀
⠀
Ecclesiastes 3:1–8 ⠀

Happy Sunday! 😊 
Part of your daily routine cannot be looking in somebody else’s life. 
Put your phone down for a couple of hours 📵
Read a new book 📚
Make a new friend 👯‍♀️
Spend more time with family and friends 💛
Drive a couple of hours and go to a new city 🗺
Because here’s the thing: If the people you’re constantly comparing to has “more” than what you already have, then you need to understand that such thing shouldn’t question your identity. Your life is worthy as much as that other person. We serve a really creative God and we all have different paths, different experiences in this beautiful journey called life.
Enjoy where you’re at right now! Ask God how can you make the most of your day and let Him direct your steps. #itsachristiangirlthing

Best Relationship Advice 💗
Write a list of things you really have to change for the best of your relationship. It was 2am when God spoke to me and said “Write things you need to change for Jon.” It was uncomfortable you guys.
I’m pretty sure I rolled my eyes at God 🙄But honestly, how can any relationship work if you don’t really love them enough to change for the better? 
For me, simple things like saying “please” and “thank you” are some of the things I lack in and honestly? I didn’t notice until I started dating this handsome guy. Whether you’re single or dating, change for the better and let your pride away. 
TALK it out with them, yourself and God and be the best you can be ❤️ That’s what love is all about. #itsachristiangirlthing

Last night I got to preach a sermon, but the significance goes far beyond simple the fact that I preached. 
Last night I got to conquer one of my biggest fears and overcome my biggest insecurity because I preached my first sermon since my brain injury. Before my injury I used to preach regularly and I thoroughly enjoyed doing so. But after my injury things changed. Those closest to me know that I am extremely self conscious and insecure about the way I speak. When I get nervous I stutter and often times I’ll start a sentence and then completely forget what I was going to say. When you have a brain injury communicating becomes a challenge and public speaking becomes an even bigger nightmare.
So last night I got to stand in a room full of people and give a word the Lord had placed on my heart. Jesus showed up in a big way and carried me through every single insecurity I had. Was it perfect? No. But in the midst of my weakness and my anxiety, God showed up. Last night when I spoke, God spoke through me, I know that because I wouldn’t have made it through the message without him. God never lets us down, He will always show up and equip us for what He has called us too. Last night He showed me that even when I feel inadequate and weak, And incapable, He is powerful. •
It’s so easy for us to feel like we can’t do something, to shy away from what God is calling us too because of our weaknesses. But the times we allow God to work and be glorified in the midst of weakness, is the most beautiful opportunity for ministry, because people see God instead of us.

Have any of you ever felt pressure to maintain a certain reputation?? Or felt like you’re getting burnt out on trying to please everyone? ⠀
.⠀
In my past I used to get so stressed out trying to maintain my reputation. Every single decision I made was based on how it would effect how other people saw me. 😬⠀
.⠀
Now, a good reputation is important and it is something Jesus even tells us to pursue.. ⠀
⠀
But the truth is: ⠀
⠀
Our reputation in the world is not a replacement for our relationship with Jesus⠀
.⠀
Just because we look good, have a good name, or are well known does not mean we are good by Jesus
⠀
I’ve been learning over these past few years that my relationship with Jesus is way more important than my reputation with others ⠀
.⠀
And so I’m sharing a little more on the truth about worrying about what other people think of you and reputation over on the blog (link in bio) ⠀
⠀
I hope this can help some of you the way it helped me! 💓⠀

This morning I wrote this reminder to myself on torn notebook paper: 
It’s still a good day 
Even if it’s a hard day 
Wanted to share this with you all because I realize that sometimes we can’t see the struggle other girls are going through inside or we can’t share what we’re dealing with out loud. And keeping it inside and dealing with it kind of feels like this a lot of the time 🤯😭😫 Lately I’ve had my fair share of hard days and being real - it’s been a struggle to stay positive through them. 
But even if today is tough let’s all agree to keep a positive mindset. Let’s all look for the good things in today even when it seems like there aren’t many. Let’s all agree to celebrate the small things in life that are beautiful and put a smile on our face. 💕

I’m challenging us all to share one small thing we’re grateful for in the comments right now 👇🏼 Go ahead and tell  me because I know there’s at least ONE thing you can be grateful for today!

How many times in your life has someone given you a compliment and you just laughed at it?! ⠀
Maybe you laughed out loud or maybe just to yourself but regardless, you laughed because you just didn’t believe the thing they complimented you on. .
Instead you think psssh they’re full of it or they’re just trying to be nice to me - instead of taking their compliment for what it is... .
⠀
If you’ve done this before you’re not alone but today I’m calling us all out on this one. ⠀
No more laughing off a compliment and convincing ourselves it’s not true. ⠀
No more picking out something we don’t like when someone tells us something they do like. ⠀
No more striving for perfectionism. ⠀
.

Today I’m asking every single one of us (me included) to show ourselves a little love. ⠀
We were created by the Master of the universe. That means every single one of us is magnificent in every single way - so let’s stop downplaying that and start embracing that!! ⠀
Today lets all agree that every-time we find ourselves saying something we don’t like about ourselves to combat those thoughts by telling ourselves two things we love and that are unique and beautiful about ourselves 💕⠀
Will you join me today?? ⠀
⠀
Tag someone below and tell them one thing you love about them, so we can all start spreading the love together ☺️⠀
⠀

Dating or want to date? This is for you 👫
This is our strongest tool: holding on.
This is how you fight your battles when you’re in a relationship.
It’s not by getting angry at each other every two days, not by fighting through text, not by hanging up rudely in the middle of the phone conversation because you’re mad, not by ignoring him, not by blocking him from everywhere but, holding on tight to Jesus so you can have a better grip holding on to him.
And hey, it’s not easy! (Trust me 🙄)
The reason why many people are breaking up and even getting divorced (aside from any signs of abuse then of course, pack your bags and go sweetie!) is because commitment is not something we’re being taught.
The world wants us to care about ourselves so much that sometimes we forget how to love people. 
Love doesn’t necessarily mean doing something you’d like to do but doing something that makes it worth it. And in a relationship, you gotta let go of your selfishness. 
If you ain’t ready to stop being selfish, you ain’t ready to date PERIOD ✋🏼 Imagine Jesus not going to the cross because it would’ve hurt too much. Imagine Jesus not dying for us because He knew we didn’t deserve it.
Sometimes you’re gonna find yourself in a position where that person you’re with will not always be beautiful and perfect and sweet, it will sometimes be awful, they would probably say things that will make you mad like crazy, you will find the weirdest flaws ever to deal with and then it makes you question: are you willing to love the idea of a relationship or are you willing to love that person because of who they are?
Truth is, just like you deserve Grace, so does that person. 
Love is a commitment, is a choice you make. Through ugly and through pretty. Through easy tasks to harder ones. Make the decision to love like Jesus did ❤️ Don’t let go of God and you’ll never let go of them #itsachristiangirlthing

“When you forget your WHY, you forget your WAY. We cannot forget why God has called us to this; He’s called us to this to transform other people and be transformed in the process.” 💛
💛
I found a church with a vision that aligns with me both professionally and personally. A church with a pastor who’s message reaches me week after week and causes me to reflect deeply on my own life. 💛

This new series called, “Recalculating” is about what to do when the pace changes and whoooowwweee am I struggling with that right now. 👏🏼😇

Let’s throw it WAY back to when I was in 9th grade, feeling a little artsy one night and decided to paint a verse on my wall . 
That day I also painted a tree with falling leaves on the other and yeah, i don’t know guys, I guess I was feeling confident in my abilities 🤷‍♀️
so please ignore the crookedness of the letters I’ve  never fixed 😅
.
But the good thing about this story is somewhere in my 15 year old heart, this verse in psalms resonated with me - “That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields fruit in its season, and whose leaf does not wither - whatever they do prospers” Psalm 1:3 . 
And even though I’ve looked at this wall literally thousands of times without acknowledging these words, today they hit me all over again. . 
See, right now I’ve been in a season of life where everything feels like it’s just tiny baby roots and some of those roots have gotten pulled up, destroyed, or a little damaged and that can just be a big discouragement. Anyone feel me on this?? But today reading this verse I painted on my wall ages ago reminded me that you can’t have the fruit without a tree, and you don’t have a tree unless you plant a seed, and that seed doesn’t survive and take root unless it’s nourished and cared for. 
And man did that just encourage my soul! 
I’ve been thinking about how all the things in my life that feel so tiny right now and like impossibilities are just seeds and that this season of life is meant for me to nourish and care for those seeds of life by planting them in the most solid foundation/ground I can - Jesus! 
And how my season of “producing fruit” will come one day but for now this season is all about growing and planting myself in the Words that are life giving and growing. . 
So I don’t know if any of you girls have ever felt like this too? Maybe you’re here right now or you’ve been here in the past - you know the place where everything feels so tiny & discouragement keeps hitting hard 
But today I’m here to just say keep going girl, keep feeding your soul, keep growing because after all, you can’t get the tree without planting the seed! 🌳

Happy Fall y’all 🍎🍂. Without roots, a tree could not survive—under doesn’t mean over. 
Psalms 1:3 They are like trees PLANTED along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do. ✨

Sometimes it's hard to remember to put God first. He can be easily forgotten in the midst of our demanding lives. It's easy to forget who you are. But God is always with us. He is in everything and his goodness is the reason why we live in the first place. 
When we do things in the name of the Lord Jesus, we are doing them in the name of the one who God gave for our sins. This means that we act in the name of our salvation, in our new selves, in the name from which we find our true identity. When we do things in the name of the Lord then we do things as our true selves, and for that we give thanks to God.

Sometimes it's hard to remember to put God first. He can be easily forgotten in the midst of our demanding lives. It's easy to forget who you are. But God is always with us. He is in everything and his goodness is the reason why we live in the first place. When we do things in the name of the Lord Jesus, we are doing them in the name of the one who God gave for our sins. This means that we act in the name of our salvation, in our new selves, in the name from which we find our true identity. When we do things in the name of the Lord then we do things as our true selves, and for that we give thanks to God. - 2 months ago

“Lord open my eyes to see you at work in my life, allow me to see you in everything, even when I don’t see anything major happening.”
•
I prayed this simple prayer this summer and the Lord in His faithfulness is bringing it to fruition. It hit me last week how I’ve been seeing God move in every aspect of my life. From seemingly random encounters with strangers, encouragement and wisdom from people who don’t know me and countless other things that I didn’t think God cared about. Almost everyday day there have been things that happened where I had just smiled and said “I see you God.” I am seeing God in EVERYTHING and let me tell you it is absolutely beautiful.
•
I honestly don’t have the words to describe how surreal it feels to see Gods hand in everything and know without a shadow of doubt that He’s moving in your life. Obviously not every season will be one where Gods presence will be evident daily, but after numerous dry seasons where it felt like I was on my own, I can finally rest in His presence and there’s nothing better.
•
Whether you feel like God is near to you, walking with you everyday, or you feel like He’s a long distance phone call away, know that He sees you and He’s working in your life. Keep pursuing Him everyday and seek Him out and He’ll meet you, He’ll show Himself to you, I promise.

So I’ve noticed I have this tendency where I plan or think or dream up something before it happens so much that I create expectations without even realizing it... ⠀
Then when it finally comes time for that day or event I find myself feeling a little let down because the real moment doesn’t look quite like the picture in my head did⠀
Does anyone else do this?? 😬
Lately I’ve been working hard to break down my unrealistic expectations, to stop trying to plan and control every situation, and to live present. ⠀
To be honest, it’s a lot easier said then done but it’s so worth it! ⠀
One of the ways I’ve been working to be more present and filled with joy in the moment is by taking a second to thank God for 3 things in the moment that are unexpected - good or bad - and asking Him to use me and my current situation to honor Him no matter how that looks ⠀
And wow, this really just sets my mind on a whole new setting in the moments I’m getting overcome by unmet expectations! ⠀🤗
Today I’m challenging any of you with this struggles to try the #3thingschallenge along side me! Who’s in?! ⠀

Guys! Don’t you just love leaving somewhere feeling encouraged???
•
 I just heard @bobgoff speak this morning at Liberty University and I am blown away by the kindness that man exudes! If you don’t know who Bob Goff is... you need to go give him a follow on the gram, RIGHT NOW! He was speaking today about his most recent book which is titled “Everybody Always” which is literally about loving everybody, always (“even those people who creep you out”-Bob). •
The Lord’s love is so evident in the life of Bob! He is a man who looks at all situations in life with a positive lens and he chooses to love people in the way Christ did! So uplifting! He is a man who is a great example of what it means to be a follower of Christ! His challenge today was to go out embrace someone in our lives who we have been avoiding and to shower them in love! I want to challenge you all to that today as well! Go out and give someone who usually “creeps you out” a hug! Let them know you care!! Be a friend! I’m sure you won’t regret it! •
Have a GREAT Friday!!! Xoxo- Sadie #boldandbeloved

It’s okay to not be okay •
I know those might seem like overused or cliche words right now, but to someone out there who is struggling with their mental health like I was, they are words that ring with freedom.
•
A year and a half ago after suffering a traumatic brain injury I started my battle with depression. I fell hard and fell fast. I couldn’t think straight, I couldn’t eat and I didn’t want relationships with those closest to me. Everything around me was collapsing. My mind was literally at war with itself and I was clearly losing. I just wanted all the pain and confusion to end... I almost gave up the fight
•
But amidst all the darkness, the brokenness and the pain, I made a choice to keep living and to keep fighting. I may have lost the battle but I wasn’t going to lose the war. It all started when I accepted 2 principles- 1. I’m not perfect, every once in awhile I’m going to fail but it’s only failure if I don’t bounce back and learn. 2. It’s okay to not be okay, but it’s not okay to stay there.
•
I don’t know what your struggle is with right now. I don’t know how painful your tomorrow looks. But I do know that you’re not alone, people care and you’re strong enough to beat whatever you’re facing. Today is #worldmentalhealthday and it’s the perfect opportunity to ask for help and start fighting back against the war inside your head; it’ll be the best decision you ever make.

💌Jesus knew the exact number of hairs on my head, he saw clearly the thoughts in my mind, he knew all the emotions in my heart.
WHY do I want to run away from Him who can see me and still love me?
-#ColinSmith 💌"Chúa Jesus hiểu rõ con người em hơn ai hết. Ngài biết chính xác số tóc trên đầu em, Ngài thấy rõ những suy tư trong tâm trí em, Ngài thấu hết những tình cảm trong trái tim em. 
Tại sao em lại muốn trốn chạy khỏi Người duy nhất nhìn thấu tâm can em mà vẫn yêu thương em tha thiết?" #girlsforgod

Ever been through a season where you just wonder if what you’re praying for will ever come to pass? Some days you feel like it’s just around the corner and others feel like it may never even happen. The roller coaster of our emotions is an exhausting and difficult ride.
•
But the word says that God is the same today, yesterday and tomorrow. Because I know this I also know that He is ALWAYS good, He is ALWAYS faithful, He is ALWAYS kind and He ALWAYS knows what’s best.
•
There is no sometimes with God, there is no actions based on emotions, there is just raw, unfiltered, unconditional love for his children so every day I get to confidently walk in the Yes & Amen of his promises knowing that if He made me a promise, that promise will come to pass. In this I find breathe, I find joy and I find life.

What promise are you holding onto?

A few days ago I went to the museum of the Bible in DC and it really got me thinking about the goodness of God! Here I was, in the middle of one of the most progressive and politically diverse cities in the United States and in amongst it all stands a six story museum that unpacks the truths of God’s Word! There is something to be said about that. •
The Lord is good. If His name can make an impact in a city like Washington DC, His name can make an impact anywhere! I challenge you today to make an impact for His name in your community! Be the light 💡 that shines for Him when all else seems lost! •
In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. -Matthew 5:16 •

Life can just stink sometimes. 😕⠀
The path we travel can get really windy and sometimes we can feel like we’re majorly lost. ⠀
I don’t know if any of you have ever felt like you’re in this kind of place, but I know I have. ⠀
Recently I’ve been struggling with my purpose ⠀
And I know you’re probably thinking that’s crazy and wondering how because after all I’m part of this community founded on living with purpose and passion! ⠀
Well, even when we know our purpose and even when we have passion sometimes they can still be hard to pursue... ⠀
Sometimes there are bumps in the road, discouragements, or just really crazy times that make it hard to stay committed. ⠀
BUT ⠀
I’m here today to encourage you to stick with it! To keep pushing, Keep pursuing, And keep on keeping on! ⠀
God has SUCH big plans for you. ⠀
Right now you might be in a place where you are feeling a little confused, a little down, or a little unmotivated but don’t give up. ⠀
1 Corinthians 9:24 tells us to keep running the race so we can get the prize in the end ⠀
And that’s exactly what we need to be doing! ⠀
It might be tiring or exhausting along the way but when we continue to pursue purpose and passion in the midst of hardships that will only make reaching the end goal and receiving the prize all the better! ⠀
So if any of you are a little down today I challenge you to keep your eyes on the prize and keep running the race - and I’ll be there right alongside you! ⠀
- Rachel 🏃🏽‍♀️

*Let’s talk about healing*

Something I’m beginning to understand about past hurts is that there is a huge difference between getting over something and truly healing from them. Growing up I didn’t believe in allowing yourself to hurt, or to be a victim because that meant showing weakness and your enemies always attack where you’re weak. But the problem is, when you don’t properly deal with hurts, you can’t move on and they will continue to have power over you. This past week was tough, I cried a lot, including a night where I literally wept and shared one of my biggest vulnerabilities with a group of strangers. This past summer I prayed and asked God to search my heart and get rid of the things not of Him and  while it certainly wasn’t something I planned on, I truly believe I’m in a season where the Lord wants to bring healing. Sometimes, healing requires going back into the hurt, feeling the emotions and coming out the other side stronger. Today I ran into a friend I haven’t spoken to since the hurt and while, he probably had no idea, the words he shared hit my heart as if they had come directly from God. It was everything, my hurting heart and weary soul needed to hear today. I walked away, burst into tears and immediately said “thank you God” about hundred times. I have a tendency to run from hurt, to glaze over it and to heal inadvertently, but it appears this time God wants me to go through it, in order to heal. God knows everything about us. He sees the shame, He sees the things we want to hide, He sees our hurt and He sees the future. He knows what you need to heal from today, in order to live a life on fire for Him, impacting other people. Dealing with hurt head-on isn’t easy, but I’m excited to see what God does with my story.
As my professor said tonight- life is going to leave you scarred, but it’s okay because scars tell some amazing stories. •

I am reading the Song of Songs for the first time and just let me say, it is so much more than I expected. What a beautiful story that is told in this book. Not only does the book give an excellent example of what true love looks like in a relationship, but it also draws fantastic parallels between the love Jesus has for us. I came across and in-text devotional about this verse and it was so interesting and eye opening. The woman starts at the beginning of the book by finding comfort in the fact that the man belongs to her. As we go on, we read these phrases in the opposite order. She is now acknowledging that she belongs to him first. And then, near the end of the book after many years of learning and growing, she takes delight in the fact that he simply loves her. She stops worrying about him leaving and she stops clinging on to him so tight. She realizes that he will not leave her, because he loves her and delights in her. This is a beautiful parallel to Jesus. We do not have to cling to him as tight as we can in fear of him leaving us. He has never and will never leave us. His love for us is deeper than anything.

I just went to a seminar on the intimacy of sex in marriage, and wow! God is awesome guys. •
Growing up, I had a really skewed view of sex because of the things I had heard from “big kids” at school and it really began to shape the way I viewed Godly intimacy. I thought sex was dirty. I thought it was something to hide from. I would literally run away and scream anytime my mother would try to talk about it. I remember being made fun of in high school and at my first job for “being a virgin.” I would literally question myself about these things... and being a teenager, I wanted to understand sex more (because what teenager doesn’t??), but instead of ever turning to God for answers, I would turn to the world and to friends to tell me all I wanted to know. I relied on things like Cosmo and the older girls at work to give me answers to my questions and I think in doing so, I furthered my worldly viewpoint of what sex is. Also- I totally found my value in how many boys were DMing me or liking me, or taking me on dates because I was buying into the lies of the enemy and I was trying to find self worth in things that will NEVER satisfy. •
So what I’m trying to get to here is that God is the one who gives us life. He is the one who satisfies. No sexual hurts or brokenness from the past can hold you back from a beautiful and redemptive life with Christ! He is where your true intimacy flows from. He fills your heart and He heals hurts and wounds. You are not bound to the sexual thoughts of your past, or the actions. You are a daughter of the King and He has come to take the place in your heart that should be held by Him!!! Have a great Monday! Shine on! 🍁✨ -Sadie  #boldandbeloved #savedbygrace

"Một trong những phẩm chất thu hút nhất một người có thể có được là tình yêu với Chúa.
Lớp trang điểm rồi cũng tàn phai.
Vẻ đẹp rồi cũng héo úa.
Nhưng
Một trái tim yêu Chúa còn vang vọng mãi đến đời đời."

I really appreciate this aspect of being a Christian. It can be tough, but it is SO good. I have seen how God uses circumstances and people to sharpen me, to help me be more like His Son and less like myself, to point me back to Himself, and to draw me toward loving and serving others more than I need and require love and service from others.
.
Sometimes I don't feel ready to be changed in my heart and in my thinking, but I know that living a life that serves others and glorified God is full of blessings.
.
How do you experience being sharpened as a believer? Fun...not so fun...love it...need prayer to love it?
.
Proverbs 27:17 says: "Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another."
.
Let us as sisters in Christ love to be sharpened, in love, by one another and be strengthened in our worship, our walk, and our witness.🙏
