This weekend brings me back to work. Oh so soon... What do you guys have planned this weekend?

Building community in the social context— in the context of our friendships —means reworking existing friendships into authentic friendships. It means humbling ourselves in front of our friends by showing them our undisguised, unguarded brokenness— our flaws and failures, our mistakes and fears. Hard stuff, no question. What’s even harder, though, is that doing this often requires that we go first. You see, authenticity is counterculture. Look around. Few people live in authentic friendship. And so, when and if we choose to, we’re likely to be out in front, all alone... for a time, at least. Someone must go first. Somebody always does. Be courageous. Pray boldly, brother: “If someone must, let it be me.” Among your group of friends, be that guy. It’ll be scary, sure. It might not go really well. But, that’s okay. We men are built for this kind of stuff. We’d wither without opposition. This can be some of the most important work we’ll ever do.

May I sing to you now? May I sing to you, my daughter who is found? Lift up your head, my darling. Lift up your head and see me looking at you. I have made you with beauty. I have made you with strength. I have made you with tenderness, a soft heart for me that will sustain you. I sustain you. Keep your heart soft, and I will sustain you. Keep yourself vulnerable, and I will lift you. Keep yourself close to me, and I will show you, step-by-step, what you love, what I see in you. There’s a lot coming, dear one. You are both a light that shines and a warrior in my name. How this looks— your life in me —will unfold as you trust me. I keep creating in you, dear one. I love being with you as we partner in your work, bringing what is to come. Want more Loop in your life? Subscribe to the Loop for Women devotional for FREE.

All of creation crys out in song giving glory to the one true living God & Father of our Lord Christ Jesus who will one day shout with the voice of an Archangel & the dead in Christ shall rise ! Oh what a glorious day ! Amen !

Such a an amazing promise, truth, and word to experience. “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord , And whose hope is the Lord. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, Which spreads out its roots by the river, And will not fear when heat comes; But its leaf will be green, And will not be anxious in the year of drought, Nor will cease from yielding fruit. Jeremiah 17:7‭-‬8

Do not fear for God is always with you, he gives us strength even when we think we don’t have any left, he gives us love so we can spread that love to others and self discipline so we can learn to recognize our sins and change our ways🦋💕

Time for a little #fridayintroductions today for any new friends hanging out around here! • I’m Ashley and this is my husband Daniel, and we’ve been married 9 years and have two great boys who are 8&4. • I thought I would tell you the story of how we met, just for fun! • I was living in my hometown with some friends and was volunteering in my home church as a youth leader. Daniel’s family had moved to the area while he was in college at Liberty University so when he graduated he moved in with them. • The new youth pastor at our church where I was serving had also gone to Liberty and “happened” to run into Daniel at Target one day. He invited Daniel to come serve in the youth group as well. • Neither of us had a thought of each other in a romantic way to begin with. The first thought I remember having was “that new kid is so brave to sit in the front by himself” and then noticing what huge arms that “kid” had🤣 yep. • Eventually, through a series of randomly funny events he took me to coffee and shortly thereafter came to my house and met my whole family. • I remember telling my mom to get ready because this was going way too well and was way too easy for it not to be something bigger. • To make a long story a little shorter we started dating in April and were married by November! It was an incredible whirlwind! • We’ve walked through amazing and hard times and continue to do so. • Always makes me think of the line “you were teaching me the only thing love can, hold hands through it. When it’s scary, you’ve got me.” • Our people are such a gift, may we never take them for granted. #walkingreflections

- - This may just be helpful for me, but I’m sharing anyway. I wish I heard it years ago. True story! After I graduated college, I entered into a great church community and had relationships with lovely sisters in Christ. It was great, but I felt a little... no, a lot of insecurities. It was because my closest five friends would all get together often and hang out. Mostly, it included fixing ourselves fancy dinners and watching movies, while doing a hobby. - - At that time I didn’t have a hobby. So, I would end up watching all of them do the same thing. They were all great at word art. Really great!! Like Etsy status. So, I went to Hobby Lobby and spent more money than I should’ve. But, I was prepared to make myself great! I tried and tried, and you know what guys, that’s just not for me. I beat myself up because I thought the ultimate Christian hobby was word art- those pretty curly and cutsy lettered quotes. - - Just as God gave all of us different spiritual gifts, He also created us with different interests. They don’t gotta be the same thing! It’s Friday, and Josephine will be reading, writing, painting fingernails, watching a classic movie and napping (yes napping is a hobby). Those are my kind of fun. That’s the way God made me. Who am I to say it’s not ‘right?’ - - So tell me, what are your plans this weekend? Are you busy? Or are you taking it easy? Share with me. I would love to know what you do on the weekends! #diverselines

Embrace More Risk. • It’s not something we’re naturally inclined to do. We like safety and security and things that are known, not things that are scary, new or unfamiliar. • But as we step out in faith to do the hard things, to take risks that feel terrifying, we are--in those moments--building up our courage and willingness to do it again...and again...and again. • Dreamer, your dreams matter. You may not know where to start, how you'll find the time, or what step to take next. But He does, and He is with you always; He will give you what you need to make it through. Believe Him for that, and if you have trouble mustering it up, ask Him for what you need, "Lord, I believe. Help my unbelief." (Mark 9:24 • And then wait and listen for His response. He will meet you there.

The secret to living out your dreams is to start right this very second, to not let another moment go by without chasing the things you want most. It’s never to late to start over, to let someone go, to move out of the past, to be a new creation. Put your two strong feet on the ground and be your very best self today. Push aside the guilt and self-doubt, get outside of yourself and freaking go for it. Live that big beautiful life already. You’ve got this my friend, we’re in this together. ... #recklesslyalive #choosetolive #fullyalive #blogger #faith #faithblogger #startover #beginagain #depression #depressed #hope #instadaily #inspiration #inspire #depressionquotes #live #keepgoing #semicolonproject #wordsofwisdom #wordstoliveby #wordsdoinspire #inspiring #love #rise #riseup #instafaith #godislove #jesuslovesyou #loved #youareloved @preview.app

Do you have a dream for your life that is so big it could only be accomplished by the grace and power of God at work in you? ... That’s called a God sized dream. ... If you’ve got one I want to hear about it... ⬇️⬇️⬇️

I stopped using my man power to do Gods work and when I let Him help me, WE moved the mountain together. Let them see me be weak, so they can see Him be strong. Let them see me fall, so that they watch Him lift me up. Let them see me fail, so that they know when I succeed, it was Him who fought the winning battle. God, thank you for showing me that alone, I'm still just human. But together, we can do miracles. #faith #god #faithful #godsplan #drakewasinawheelchair #see #miracles #hawaii #photography #landscape #beautiful #sunflowers #flowers #landscape #colorful #happy #encouragment #hope #faithbased #live #love #licorice #imean #laugh #instafaith #instagood #canon #getoutside #hike #thiswassideofroad #butihike

I don’t know about you but I don’t like inviting people into my home when it is messy. It’s embarrassing and it’s not a very accommodating setting. So it is with your life. You want things in order before you bring others into it. #whywait #knowyourworth #wait #worththewait #purity #purpose #pursuit #whoami #whyamihere #life #lifelessons #millennials #igen #teens #loveyourself #college #collegelife #abstinence #instafaith #instamoms #instadads #parenting #value #worththewait #worthit

Hey! It’s Laura-Jane, your resident Bible, book and coffee obsessed friend. BUT, in honor of #fridayintroductions, I thought I’d share 10 things you might not know about me: . 1. I love purses and bags. I used to buy designer handbags all the time. While I don’t anymore, I still admire them and appreciate their beauty. . 2. I add things to my to do list after I’ve done them since I can highlight them as completed. I rarely add things to my list unless I’m sure I’ll get them done. It stresses me out to not be able to highlight everything. . 3. I LOVE calendars and follow several accounts that post their beautifully decorated calendars. I dapple in it myself from time to time, but I’m not dedicated enough to do it all the time. . 4. There are a lot of big words that I know but don’t know how to pronounce because I’ve only read them in books—I can’t be alone in this one, right? . 5. I love games but am so competitive that I have to mentally prepare myself ahead of time that it’s just for fun and not important. I have both cried and caused other family members to cry because of my irrational competitiveness while playing Phase 10 and Mexican Train—not in recent years, thankfully. God has worked wonders in that area. . 6. I love to dance and am ready for someone to get married so I have somewhere to go dance to fun music. We mostly listen to worship music, ‘90s music and early 2000s music in Casa Barber. . 7. I mostly wear jeans and flip flops or my Ugg house slippers—even in public {they have a hard sole!}. I also love Uggs boots because they keep my feet warm in the winter. & leggings. I’m a big fan of leggings. . 8. I have extremely sensitive eyes and wear sunglasses even when it’s overcast. My eyes and sunlight don’t mix and haven’t since I was pregnant with my first. I also only buy cheap sunglasses {$15 or less at Target and Walmart}. . 9. I prefer to wear my hair up because I don’t like it touching my neck. If I’m at home, it’s up 90% of the time. In public, it’s mostly down though. . 10. I don’t love showers unless I’m freezing. I take quick ones most days unless I’m super cold when I get in. In that case, I struggle to get out at all.
