Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

🔥Shame the devil & tell the truth! 🔥 . . . Last I checked, there’s no condemnation in Christ Jesus. When people from my past see me now & can’t figure out why I’m blessed, I tell them I am someone that you USED TO KNOW & I point them to the Way, the Truth, & the Light! . . . God paid a hefty price for all of us. I thank God for his mercy & his goodness endures forever! Saved by GRACE! 🙌🏽 . . . “And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,” ‭‭Acts‬ ‭4:29‬ ‭KJV‬‬
There are some individuals who'll come in your life and teach you how not to be through their actions... count that as a blessing in correction leading to the path of righteousness in faith through Christ Jesus. 👉👆Amen ....

A few weeks ago my mom asked if we wanted to go look at Christmas lights with her. Of course we said yes! . Tonight was the night we picked for our little adventure and we had quite a fun time. . I loved listening to Dalton oohing and aahing over everything. (What can I say I was pointing out my favorites too! After all I’m a big kid at heart.) . As we walked into he house he asked if we could go again tomorrow night. 😂 . What fun Christmas traditions does your family have?
When Lendl told me that his work is closing down, I was at peace. Sounds weird, right? I’m on mat leave and my husband just lost his job. We were going on vacation after his last day. Our car was stolen after going on that vacation (and then found it). How did I not spiral and have breakdowns? — “All (my) anxiety bows in the presence of Jesus, the keeper of peace.” P E A C E by Hillsong Young & Free — Knowing the Lord’s goodness and faithfulness has given me peace, trusting that He will meet our needs. He is with us in our highs and lows, in the in betweens. I’ve told Lendl before that he is like Jonah in the sense that God’s been telling him to go to Nineveh, but he went to Rogers. Our recent “low” with losing his job, while I’m on my mat leave is a blessing in disguise because God has recently called Lendl to become a church planter, along with me and Kal. We don’t know yet where exactly—we’ll keep you updated. It’s always been our prayer for God to use our marriage, our family to magnify Him. But I never really thought it would be through church planting. It’s scary. It might not work out. But God is faithful and He will be honoured in whatever we do. We really appreciate if you can pray for this future church, pray for our current church (CABC), for our family, for Lendl, for Kal and for me. — “I will sing of the steadfast love of the Lord, forever; with my mouth I will make known your faithfulness to all generations. For I said, ‘Steadfast love will be built up forever; in the heavens you will establish your faithfulness.’” — Psalm 89:1-2 . . . #miavlendl #fotr #foundedontherock #holdthemoments #choosejoy #church #churchplant #churchplanting #churchplanters #localchurch #torontoigers #torontolifestyle #torontomoms #durhammoms #community #faithinspired #faithfulness #godisfaithful #faithful #faith #psalms #peace #prayer #motherhoodinspired #babyboy #9monthsold #familyonmission #family #familyportrait #familyphoto
Josh didn’t know how to “lead” when we got married, and he told me so. I remember standing in the kitchen as he said it: “I don’t even know the first place to start.” Being the efficient woman that I am, I’d been stepping into the void without waiting to see if and how he would fill it. . I didn’t have evil motives. I just didn’t know what this marriage could look like if I came alongside the kind of leader he is, instead of expecting him to fit a mold - A mold some marriage books implied he had to be: Authoritative, domineering, directing every part of our home life. . We talk about equal yoking BEFORE marriage but then as soon as we marry, no one brings it up anymore. But we should be equally yoked! Partners pulling weight equally, helping each other, lifting one another up spiritually, becoming in tune to how your spouse leads specific to their personality, not who you wish they were. . Josh is an excellent leader. And his leadership has helped me live out mine (because I am a leader too). This is how we got there: 🌲 I became conscious of when I was jumping into a situation before asking his input or letting him act, even when he acted slower than I might. 🌲 he learned to face conflict and to engage with the family as I worked to make those opportunities visible. 🌲 I affirm his leadership qualities and he affirms mine. 🌲 We appreciate one another’s leadership skills in this relationship - my initiative and administration, his teaching and problem solving - instead of solely concentrating on where we lack 🌲 I pray for him to be the kind of man God wants him to be, and that I’ll recognize it when he is. . Instead of berating our men to “step up”, take a moment to ask if you’re standing in the void. Affirm what good is in him now. And PRAY. Before speaking, nagging, reminding - PRAY. The Spirit can do work you can’t ❤️

Had a much needed lunch date with this stud today. . He had a burger + fries and I had veggies and grilled chicken. 🙌🏼 . Now that we’re parents, we don’t get out by ourselves very often. But when your in-laws offer to baby-sit and you have a gift card, you jump on the opportunity! . We’ve been working on spending intentional time with each other, but it’s easy for it to get pushed aside when the to-do list seems never ending. . Is this something that you and your spouse struggle with as well? What do you do to kindle your relationship, even in the hectic seasons of life? . . . . . #dateyourspouse #marriedlife 💍 #wifeylife
Did someone say pajama party? . . . Tonight is one of my favorite traditions that I cannot wait to share with our future kiddos! Tonight is Seth and I’s “Christmas Eve” and every year I fill our Christmas Eve box with goodies (including matching pajamas) and we spend the rest of the evening enjoying all the goods! Seth wouldn’t let me post the pic of him and his pjs 😂 so I just put it on my story (go check it out for a laugh!)
Happy 40th anniversary to this godly couple. I’m so thankful to have wonderful in-laws (not all people get to say that!). We are blessed to have such a loving example of marriage and perseverance. Here’s to many more years!
Wishing everyone a very blessed Mele Kalikimaka (Merry Christmas). I’m grateful for each and every one of you.  I look forward to continuing my inspirational journey in 2019 and sharing my heart as the Spirit speaks.  Hope that you enjoy all the beautiful moments that God has in store for you and your family this holiday season.  Choose joy in He who is always faithful in every season, for He is worthy. . Christmas is a time to celebrate the birth of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.  He came to this earth to willingly die for our sins on the cross.  Jesus is the reason for the season. . “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:11 . . #spokenspirit #faithinspired #grateful #inspirational #womenoffaith #believe #wordsfromtheheart #prayer #peace #truth #kindness #inspirationalquotes #hope #joy #life #wisdom #love #blessedlife #serenasvoice

Part 1/2 Discernment = Standing in the same puddle⠀ ⠀ I prayed day and night for discernment because the apostle Paul told me to. The problem was I had no idea what the heck discernment was. I looked up the definition online and still found nothing that my heart said yes too. I asked friends, family, pastors, and leaders what the heck discernment was. I grew more and more depressed, I felt angry, frustrated, anxious, shut down, wanting to medicate the pain with porn. ⠀ ⠀ I felt hopeless, I got constant memories of dark places in my life and felt super insecure around people. I started mouthing and saying phrases that were unfamiliar to me and for some reason those thoughts and phrases only came up with certain and the same people when I was around them. Whenever I looked at people I got very strong memories of my past and certain pain points. I would be in a room full of people feeling self-conscious, wanting to compete in dominance, then I leave the building for some fresh air. All those feelings vanish. And I’m able to think logically again. Wait a minute. Is that discernment? ⠀ ⠀ I could have sworn all of those feelings were myself. But they weren’t. ⠀ ⠀ I like to describe discernment as standing in the same puddle as someone else. Everyone has a puddle, and when you step into their puddle. You start to see, feel, hear, perceive as they do. ⠀ ⠀ But why do we get to have this privilege? Is it even a privilege? ⠀ ⠀ For the longest time, it felt like a burden because I had no idea what to do with it. But the more I went through ministry experience, and life experience and growth, I was given the keys of breakthrough for not only myself but breakthrough for others. ⠀ ⠀ I will go more into⠀ -identifying with discernment ⠀ -tools to finding your bearings ⠀ -standing in the truth in the midst of a storm⠀ -breaking free from atmosphere ⠀ -partnering with God with deliverance ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ PC: @fabian.huebner
In Psalm 32:8a we read: I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go... The decisions that we take daily can and will affect our future, now and forever. We need someone who will NEVER lead us wrong. This person will instruct and teach us better than ever! He can give us true and wise counsel. That person is the Lord God Himself. I am thankful that, if we are looking for direction in life, God is there for us! All we need is to get in His Word, to pray and seek the Lord’s face for He promises to teach and instruct us! _ _ #truewords #prayers #thewordofgod #be_connectedwithjesus #blessedandhighlyfavored #prayer #godlovesyou #dailyhope #instapics #blessed 😇 #wordsofencouragement #KingdomWoman #jesustime #faithmovesmountains #jesusisthereasonfortheseason #dailydevotional #jesusiscomingsoon #jesusismysavior #jesusiscalling #biblestudyfellowship #quoteoftheday #dailyquotesforyou #goodwords #favoured #faithinspired #teamjesus #divineguidance #youversion #bibleverses #deepwords
Don’t ever question your worth❤️ You are CHOSEN. Through life we all question our worth, sometimes in comparison to those around us. But the thing is, it doesn’t matter who we are compared to others, it matters who we are compared to Jesus. How close is your personality to the personality of our savior? Our God says you are beautiful, you are worthy, you are capable of anything through Him, you have made it this far, and you will continue to do great things✨ Don’t worry what the world thinks of you, worry about what God sees in you💘 • • • • • • • • • • • #jesussaves #givemejesus #shereadstruth #christianblogger #propelwomen #christiancreative #faithinspired #jesus #godisgood #pray #faith #worship #soulscripts #thatsdarling #christianblog #churchmedia #shedelights #gracemakers #bedeeplyrooted #verseoftheday #bibleverse #christianliving #christianmom #illustratedfaith #worship #boldbraveyou #church #womenintheword #bible #biblestudy
This mornings thoughts 💛
S I S T E R H O O D⠀ ⠀ What we have in common – Our Sisterhood In Christ – is stronger than any earthly differences. ⠀ ⠀ As I walk beside the women in our program at @girlsetfreeshop , the ones sewing, knitting, weaving, packaging or working their way through safe-housing, there are so many personalities and backgrounds to work through. As a victim (now walking victoriously) of exploitation myself, being betrayed by a woman has been one of the biggest obstacles I’ve had to overcome. The enemy exploited my brokenness to keep me isolated from other women. He knows, when we gather together, and become united in heart and mission, great things happen! Not only in our own lives but for The Kingdom. ⠀ ⠀ This day, I challenge you to lay down your brokenness, differences and fear. Grab a sister in your circle of influence and speak truth over her. ⠀ God calls us to community. This is the Gospel being lived out. If you’re with me, show me some praise hands 🙌🏻🙌🏽🙌🏿 below!⠀ ⠀ I’m standing right beside you, arms stretched to heaven, palms open wide as I thank God for this community and the women He’s tucked close beside my heart. ⠀ ⠀ ♡ a m y⠀ ⠀ #thisismycommunity #womeninspiringwomen #sistersinChrist
I’m starting to love resistance 😍 that’s how you know the good stuff’s comin
These two beautiful songs have been in my head and on my heart to share for sometime now. Reckless love is a powerful song explaining and telling just how good he is and how his Love is overwhelming, never ending and reckless. It chases us and fights till we’re found! We do not deserve it at all but he tries so hard for us!! Why?? Because we are nothing compared to Him!! NOTHING. He DIED!! Do you know anyone who would die for you...WELP He did!!! How is that not beautiful and wonderful and just an emotional picture of just how much He loves us!! ALL of us!! ••And then Help from heaven is song I’ve been having to learn and listen to over the last month or so for my choir Christmas production at my church (which is tomorrow night WOO-HOO) and just having to listen and learn it I’ve just recognized how beautiful it is.. every-time my body just gets chills and I can feel His presence. It’s so beautiful and in this song it just tells people that we all need help from heaven. His whisper of hope and there is an answer. When the world is on our shoulder and we need a hand to believe.. just take his hand, and believe, in the help from heaven. Beautiful right? You can get help from heaven anytime all you have to do is believe!! I know I have, many many times especially this year. If you ask you will hear and you will have your help from heaven!!! Soo Please take 10 minutes of your day and go listen to these amazing songs!!! (Sorry for the lengthy paragraph ) I just had to share these two amazing songs with all you lovely people!! I hope God blesses you this coming week! Much love ❤️❤️

INDIANAPOLIS or bust! 🚙🤰🏻I was honestly pretty nervous about taking a 5 and a half hour road trip at #36weekspregnant but it went better than expected! Only a couple extra stops for bathroom breaks and I was even able to close my eyes and rest for a half hour! Now it’s time to celebrate with friends for the holidays! 🎄🦌❤️

🔥The year of the BOSS🔥 . . . Yesterday, I quit my job 5hrs before @yagirl_soph came on Live to release this word. 🔥🔥🔥
There's a purpose for everything. When I started making #Jewels the idea wasn't to make anything lengthy but just to make short, 60 second nuggets of revelation. But God had a different plan. This series has benefitted me as much as it has some of the people that partake. Before Jewels, I had no idea how God was going to pour the Word out of me again. After Jewels, it has MADE ME BELIEVE that life could be what God said it was years ago. Here's to another notch on the belt. #God #godisgood #godbless #Godfirst #GodIsLove #godly #GodLovesYou #godsgift #faith #faithful #faithingod #faithoverfear #faithfulness #faithhopelove #faithblogger #faithbased #faithfulgod #FaithWalk #Faithbuilders #Faithinaction #faithInspired #motivation #motivational #MotivationalSpeaker #motivationalwords #motivationalpost #motivationdaily #motivation101 #motivationiskey
My life is my ministry- for years I thought God just left me to do life alone, to figure out the fine details of my life alone and I struggled with excepting that God was there for me rooting for me. The devil trampled on the faith- whenever I built it up and I started to believe the devil would always make me believe that I was forgotten and for years I held on to that mindset that I was worthless and I had no purpose to me. Until one day as I was faintly praying out to God for help and he came to me and heard my prayers, I had no idea how much God loved me until he pulled this projector of my life out the sky and I saw myself as a child and he said I been in love with you so how can I forget you. And that is what honestly fuels me to push forward because I know that God loves me and it’s impossible to forget the ones you love- I know God has something amazing in store for us because we’re pressing forward and believing and this collection isn’t about wearing a shirt it’s about gaining your faith back in Jesus to know that he hasn’t forgotten you. - Photographe 📸@mpphoto82

as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. // Psalm 103:12
“The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places.“Ernest Hemingway” There’s no perfection here. Just frailty. Fragility even. And the constant need for acceptance, connection and community. It is through gazing at the many photos like this one I found, we can, of course do many things alone, we can live alone, work alone, but we can never ever be human alone. Pain coupled with love has taught me this more than any raw emotion lingering in the universe. And it is also by God’s Grace I’ve learned to heal, let go and forgive and to love unconditionally even in this fragile and yet beatific state of being.
‘For wisdom will come from my mouth; words of insight and understanding will be heard from the musings of my heart. I will break open mysteries with my music, and my song will release riddles solved.’ ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭49:3-4‬ ✨ . . This morning I woke up with such a deep gratitude for music, I can’t even explain it 😭 . Throughout my health journey, the one thing that’s been constant is this fire inside of me to sing my way through the storm. . Its like He knew all along I would need music to lift myself out of the pit...and songs to sing over my body, soul and spirit when nothing else could bring relief. . Thank God He knew. . . What passions connect you to God, light you up and heal your soul in ways you never knew you needed? ❤️ . . Also SIDENOTE: So pumped to add a new uke to the fam! Thanks @ukuglobal I never win anything soo this was exciting 🥳🌺✨ . . . . . . . #christianblogger #bloggerlife #shereadstruth #givemeJesus #bloglovin #vscocam #postwithpurpose #influence #influencenetwork #womenintheword #wellwateredwomen #gritandvirtue #boldbraveyou #feelfreefeed #sheislight #shetheroar #shelaughs #weareunveiled #stayradiantxo #thatsdarling #propelwomen #womenonamission #thefreewoman #flashesofdelight #livedeeplyrooted #faithinspired #encouragementgallery #inspiration #liveauthentic #soulscripts
#repost @faithxthreads. . Sometimes those of us with loved ones and families forget that at Christmas time, there are those who are without and lonely... . So please today for one minute, take some time to pray for those without and let them know that there is a God who loves and is with them this season too... || #ivegotyourback || faithxthreads.com
This week so far I have been quiet on here. Just needed to step away from social and the pressure I can feel from running an business and keeping up. Counting my joy list today. Grateful for supportive family and friends. This place has been a blessing and the encouraging words I hear from you guys keep my creativity going. I am easily one that could just hide away from the madness of life but God says no. You keep shining your light in the darkness and don’t keep it hidden. So I pray every thing I say and create points you to Jesus. I can’t wait to see more of y’all wearing your bracelets! Seeing ya’ll share your bracelets and reminders of walking daily with the Lord blesses me but ultimately blesses Him that we are keeping our eyes focused on Jesus. I will hopefully be sharing some new design soon stay tuned! 😊👌🏻 #handstamped #knitthegospelintoyourheart #handmadeknitsbytracy
I just feel that someone wants to give up on God because of unanswered prayers, unanswered heart desires, but God says hold on, do not give up on me! Keep asking & praying for the things you desire- the Bible says to pray without ceasing so if you’re feeling like you cannot do this anymore pray and ask God to help you, to show himself. ❤️ I am praying for your strength in the Lord.
Every season, every storms prepares you for something later to come in your life but if you’re constantly nagging and complaining to get out of that season you will miss the bigger picture- remember all things work together so if this season of your life is hard hang in there- the book of James chapter one says if your life is filled with difficult moments rejoice because you’re learning strength, endurance and perseverance so stop complaining and ask God what do you want me to learn.... ❤️
I see all of these cute holiday photos of little ones all over the place. I tried to get that “cute” holiday photo but it just wasn’t happening. 🙇🏼‍♀️ - Instead I got something better...imperfection. Imperfection is good for this girl (me) whose inner critic begs for perfectionism on the daily. 🗣 - I see this picture of little Molly. She isn’t in her Christmas PJs nor is she giggling with glee. She is in her diaper...wearing half an outfit. - This imperfect picture tells a story of a little girl, pulling with all her might, a stool over to the Christmas tree. She has been told time and again not to do so...but something keeps beckoning her over. 🎄 - Is it the beauty of the tree with nearly all of the ornaments flipped upside down or barely hanging on? - Maybe it’s the lights (that we are, oh so happy, worked again this year). - Nope, Molly girl wants a candy cane that is far beyond her reach. She knows Mama is soon going to tell her “ah-ah, get down.” She will whine and I might get frustrated... - This imperfect picture is good for me. Because I see my perfectly imperfect girl being a perfect child...
Happy Thursday! ❤️ this month has literally been amazing I feel like it’s getting me pumped for next year.... c’mon Jesus with the wins. Lol.
Baking with my grandmother, as I am sure many of you can relate, was a highlight of my life🌻. Just being a child in her kitchen and smelling the spices....brings back feelings of; rest, pure-ness, excitement of the simple things and a sense of wholeness. - My grandmother never let on that I was stressing her out with my flour messes or cinnamon spills. She radiated warmth towards me. - Little did my grandmother know that her patience with me and my experiences with her...were, what I now perceive as, glimpses into heaven. - I don’t want to steal that glimpse of heaven from my girls! Do I radiate warmth towards them and allow them to feel rest rather than stress over my own unmet expectations? - What about my husband? Do I radiate warmth towards him or do I allow perfectionism to steal what bits of Heaven God could show through me? - - With all my mess ups, frustrations and brokenness...can I be a glimpse of Heaven?
If your flesh is constantly aroused but your spirit is dying it’s not of God and it’s time to send him/her packing! Iron sharpens iron! ❤️ the person God has for you will not just speak to your body. A real woman/ man of God will not want for you to get off track ( I don’t care what nobody says) if they love God they will make sure that they’re helping you to fulfill the prophecy that God has spoken over your life they will not kill it.
I wish there were a better way to reach the women I am trying to reach; the imperfect perfectionist, the striver of the greener grass, the one who judges herself so harshly yet puts on a show as if she has it all under control. - Are you here, sweet woman? Are you the woman who wishes she could just get over her anger, disappointment and doubts? The woman who goes to bed at night and thinks, “I wish I could have done better today.” - - If you are here...I know you. I know you well. My heart is for you and I am called to speak life to you, as uncomfortable as it is for me at times, because God sees you. - I wish Instagram were not my only avenue to you. 🌻 I was thinking of you as I poured my heart out and wrote“The Hallway of Fear & Perseverance.” - Read “The Hallway of Fear & Perseverance” by clicking the link in my bio❤️. Be encouraged and lifted.
It time that we empty ourselves out so that God can download his spirit within us. We’re so filled with so much stuff that God has no room to fully showcase his self. Make room for God. Get rid of dead lingering things that are taking up too much space in your heart... ❤️
Just in case you’re losing hope- just in case your Faith was failing. Do not allow for your mind to forget the God that we serve, he created the whole universe off of spoken words so if he says that something will happen within your life it will happen for his words are action verbs meaning action will be produced from what he says. Remember that God is not a God that shall lie! Everything he has promised you it will be accessible unto you!
I am not good at allowing messes☝️I can tolerate it for awhile but only if I KNOW it will be picked up. Pieces of anything on our carpet clenches my throat (yes...obviously it’s an issue🤦🏼‍♀️). “Why can’t he (my husband) see that there is crap on the floor and chunks of food on the refrigerator handle??!!” 🍌🍗🍎 Am I the only one who sees the “PRIORITIES” of the household? 🗣As I huff and puff my way through scrubbing the kitchen counter (for the second or third time on this particular morning) I see my husband squeeze his way into the blanket fort my girls were hiding and giggling in....I am reminded that my husband sees priorities that I easily miss 🌻
Just as you trusted in God to save you from your sin, have that same trust in knowing that he’s there to help with your everyday for problems. Sometimes when your life is hectic, and things aren’t going the way we planned people will leave and allow you to figure it out but, what a friend we have in Jesus... Right? He’s saying in Colossians 2:6 just as you trusted me to save you- have that same mindset when it comes to your everyday problems. That God is there to help, to alleviate your worries❤️
Watching her sleep might possibly be one of the most calming moments for me. 🌛⭐️ Knowing she is sleeping without a care in the world is uplifting as a parent. 🌳 We had a late night yesterday and this little one found her way to my pillow as she was waiting for me to take her down to her room. 🌼 I have had the sign “simple” hanging up, for quite some time, to remind me of what is important in this life while not getting worked up over this busy world. 🌎🙇🏼‍♀️ So, needless to say, I had to take a picture in the dark and light it up with filters (so I didn’t wake this Lilly girl up). Sometimes blurry and filtered is okay 😘. Nothing is perfect. Lilly falling asleep beneath that sign was the perfect image for my heart and soul.
It brings me so much joy whenever I see Kal take in every little thing around him. Just pure wonder and in awe ✨ Having kids of our own (and being around soo many kids) made me realize how we can forget to see God’s creation in wonder and experience His presence in awe! Also, just the way kids pray is so open—they say what‘s in their heart and they boldly ask God! Are you still in awe of Him? Are you still eager to know God? Do you trust Him wholeheartedly? 👉🏼 “and said, "Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” —Matthew‬ ‭18:3-4‬ ‭ESV‬‬ . . . #Christmas #ChristmasMarket #wonder #letthembelittle #littleandbrave #winterbaby #igbaby #parenthoodmoments #memoirsofmotherhood #inspirationintheeveryday #holdthemoments #toronto #torontolife #family #faithinspired #trustingod #faith
These early mornings have me scrambling🤦🏼‍♀️but then this girl does her thing (a simple smile) and draws me back from my inner turmoil of striving for perfection. God knows the power of a smile 🌻 what pulls you out of your anxiety in the early morning? When you have the tasks of the day before you....what reminds you of your purpose?
The book of Ruth has shown me that God takes our seemingly hopeless situations and gives hope. As I thought through who God is as I was reading I saw not only the love commitment between Naomi and Ruth but how God used them and changed Naomi from feeling empty handed to full. Through Boaz God provided abundance and a future for them. Our faith in Jesus can show others who God is when we put it into action. Ruth boldly but humbly asked Boaz to be the family Redeemer to give her protection and he said she was worthy and yes💗 That’s exactly how our relationship with Jesus should look like. Humble and surrendered heart, bold prayers to the Father, resting under the shadow of His wings for refuge. . . . #wordbeforeworld #wellwateredwomen #christiancreatives #shereadstruth #truth #faithblogger #lampandlight #abeautifulmess #shereadstruth #encouragement #womenlivingwell #butfirstjesus #thehappynow #encouragementgallery #soulscripts #christianinspiration #shespeakstruth #womenintheword #faithinspired #dailyencouragement #christianliving #deeplyrooted #trustgod #devotional #godlywoman #christianwomen
So many encouraging words stamped and each cuff prayerfully knit for that girl who feels defeated, for the Mom who needs a little nod from God saying “I got this my child” or for the girl who is filled up and wants to meditate on the goodness of Jesus every minute through her day. {A hug on your wrist 💗 }That was me and still is me when I wear mine. I pray each one that leaves my hands to your wrist is worn to seek His face even more and to know He is there no matter your season or circumstance my friend. Bless y’all this weekend! I am shipping these and a few more to a local to my boutique😃 #soexcited #girlfriendgift #wristlove #handmadeknitsbytracy
Like Paul I want to keep encouraging you guys, that our hearts will be knit together in love, attaining all the wealth that comes from the full assurance of understanding, resulting in a true knowledge of God's mystery, that is, Christ Himself. {Colossians 2:2} We know our hearts can deceive us so it is crucial we have Christ’s treasures of wisdom and knowledge to guide our hearts. Standing firm in our faith is easier when our hearts are grounded in Truth isn’t it? I know when I have drifted from His Word or “unraveled my heart” it was easier to listen to what I felt like rather than what God was saying to me. ..................................................... It’s has been gloomy and non stop raining ☔️here in TN for the past few days and school is out for flooding today. Needless to say I am ready for some sunshine ☀️ I am kicking myself now for not buying the pretty bouquet of 💐 yesterday! 🙄 it would of at least brightened up the table 🤩 #handmadeknitsbytracy #preachingtomyself #wellwateredwomen
This photo was from two years ago. But every time I look at it I am reminded of how much my soul craves the things of God. I hunger to be wrapped up in what is real and authentic. - - I have always had a thing for forests and open wheat fields. I wondered why they always stirred my heart and gave me an ache for something more. Perhaps because when I look at such beauty I am seeing glimpses, foreshadows, of the Kingdom to come. - - My hope, for the renewing of what is broken in this world, is solidified a little more whenever God reveals Himself through His creation. He wants us to hope. His creation says just that. - - Us moms are told time and again to make sure our kids play outside. They need exercise of course and that fresh air...(both of which are important). However, perhaps the most important reason to take my Lilly and Molly outside, is so they can get to know God.
