Finding Balance

“Why do you call Me, Lord, Lord, and do not do what I say? Everyone who comes to Me and hears my words and acts on them, I will show you whom he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid a foundation on the rock; and when a flood occurred, the torrent burst against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built.” Luke 6

What a blessing that my life has gone in every single direction, other than which I had planned. It’s been choppy, and it’s most certainly been turbulent. God’s grace alone has revealed my endless weakness, allowing me to rely on Him alone and stand strong in ways I didn’t think possible. Even when the waters get rough, I never have to question the solid foundation on which I stand. Though each new day brings surprises of its own, there flows a deep stream of joy, confidence, and peace within my veins, rejoicing that His ways are so much higher than my understanding.

“Cast your burdens upon the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.” Psalm 55:22

Rise, Smile, and Shine!

Live intentionally

Time to rise, smile, and shine….it’s going to be a beautiful new year! No silly New Years resolutions for me this time, those never worked anyway. The only thing that has ever encouraged healthy change in my life is to live one with intention and purpose.

To think of others more and myself less. To pursue wisdom and practice the fruits of the spirit. To rejoice in my trials as much as my blessings. To make goals and and remain diligent. To set boundaries and stay consistent. To love without limits. To not wear socks with sandals. To be generous with what I’ve been given. To proceed with caution and have faith like a child. To push my mind and my body out of the box. To stay positive and never say never. To remaining committed in doing what I say I will do. To remember my life was bought with a price and my worth is far beyond what I could possibly fathom. To walk in truth and be a difference. To stumble seven times and get up eight. To live a life that has nothing to hide. And to always glorify my Maker.

That being said, I can already tell 2015 is going to be an incredible year! 💚
