Now if the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” it would not for that reason stop being part of the body. If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be. If they were all one part, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, but one body. The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!” On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor. And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty, while our presentable parts need no special treatment. But God has put the body together, giving greater honor to the parts that lacked it, so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it. (1 Corinthians 12:15-26)

As my family transitions into a new season, my takeaway from this past season is this: we are called to love people for who they are not for what they do or don’t do. If our journey in this life is to look more like Christ then expect to go through seasons where He will allow situations to come our way to grow us. It’s up to each of us whether we pass or fail. He’s looking at how we will treat others despite what’s been done. Will we love them, respect them, do the hard thing He’s calling us to do OR will our flesh give way and ugliness get the best of us? We aren’t responsible for their actions, but we will be held accountable for our own. Choose wisely.
We all have those moments when the one we thought would be there isn’t. When the words are spoken that shatter or the action is taken that disappoints. No one is immune from the things that can shake our world and at times break our hearts. We may be caught off guard and feel surprised by what some may do or say. So in those moments, as hard as it may be, I have discovered the safest and wisest response is to lean into love and love people anyway. I didn’t say it’s the easiest or most desired response, but it is the one that will ebb the frustration and quiet the soul. And it will often stop you from the reaction you are most likely justified to make, yet you can actually be better and rise above that which seeks to hold you down. When things seem a little confusing or even out of control, lock onto love. His love for you, your love for Him and let that love lead you. This kind of Love is strong and it’s a love that doesn’t ignores what needs to be addressed but filters what comes next. We all fail and we all fall short. We are not immune from those moments that knock us off our feet but neither are we immune from the power of love and how it can pick us back up and help us walk on. So today be strengthened, don’t allow your life to be derailed by someone’s careless words or actions. Choose to give thanks and remember that a moment of surprise doesn’t have to lead to a lifetime of offense.
I was recently asked if I thought God would be upset with me if Matt and I get married outside as opposed to being in a church. (It was not meant or taken offensive just a curious question I suppose) ✨My response was, for me God’s Church is outside! You see a church is just a building without the people inside. And I believe He takes great pride in His creation it IS His masterpiece. If you ask me He did a pretty amazing job! ✨The thing about God is He will reach you wherever you are indoors, outdoors, at work, at home any where, because God is not limited by the walls of a building. He just wants to know YOU and for you to seek Him however you know how! ✨So when Sunday rolls around I challenge you to find your church where ever you are; in the MOUNTAINS, on the back of a HORSE, or maybe in a church building. Don’t let people tell you what’s right or wrong let God’s voice be the only one you listen to!
