It’s been my goal this year to read the entire #bibleinayear Not as chore nor am I able to “study” everything I am reading. It is something I wanted to do because honestly I have studied books of the Bible and done so many studies but never read through the entire Bible. I have learned that spending time in the Word of God is the best habit to have. So if you need to challenge yourself maybe this if for you too #wordbeforeworld Do it before work, do it before we go to the world for answers. God’s Word has everything we need. How are you doing this year? Tip for you... grab a Bible you love to read and maybe carry with you. Some days taking it with me is how I roll 👍🏻 . . P.S. #knitthegospelinyourheart Facebook group will be starting a new study in the book of Hosea in July! Join us if you want to learn to read the Bible and study for your self! ~link is in my profile~ #wellwateredwomen #lampandlight #handmadeknitsbytracy

The days have been long and hard lately and I’ve been an emotional puddle if I’m honest. I’ve let the enemy win in my life over the past few weeks and I’m over it. Choosing joy — choosing happy — choosing LIFE. Thankful for the little one inside me and his daddy who shows me the grace and love of Jesus every dang day 💛 (Swipe left for Greg’s take on the knotted tee😂) I LOVE THIS GUY!!! #waitingonaugie

You can’t change your past. You can however look towards a better future. It’s like being a on fitness + nutrition journey... So many women stay stuck where they are because of the bad habits from the past. Yet, don’t do anything to change the course of tomorrow. Let go of what got you to this place, stop that negative self-talk. Focus on what you’re going to do right now to get you to a better place. Who’s stopping you from reaching the healthy lifestyle goals you’ve always hoped for? You, my friend. You’re in control and more than capable to live a healthy balanced life by choosing to be a better YOU now. Press forward my friend YOU ARE WORTH IT.✨ #manifoldstrengthingrace #2018joyfulandstrong . . . #christianwife #christianmama #faith #givemejesus #christianlife #trust #hiscreation #gritandvirtue #womenintheword #lampandlight #anxietywarrior #eternallife #jesus #bedeeplyrooted #trustgodsplan #liveintentionally #faithandfitness #jesusisking #savedbygrace #godisgod #faithoverfear #goforward #refection #speaklife #lookahead

// Thoughts //⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What would you tell yourself if you had the chance to go back 10 years? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 2008, I was feeling terrible about myself because I hadn't finishing college yet, was preggo with our fourth child and I was hoping that my now hubs will make everything be better. I wish I could go back in time and tell that ten-years-ago self that You will never find your true passion in someone else's eyes. Spend some time alone and get comfortable with yourself as your own source of validation. I learned that lesson eventually, but think of the time I’d have saved! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What would you say? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #wisdomtuesday #faithblogger #shereadstruth #lampandlight #sandiego_ca #shetheroar #californiadreamin #igerssandiego #daughterofdelight #socali #christianblogger #relevantentrepreneur #sdlife #graceupongrace #livelifeabundantly #simplygrace #soulscripts #itiswell #sheworkshisway #californialove❤️ #letyourlightshine #sheislight #faithinspired #socallife #christiangirl #inspodaily #shedelights

Something that should have taken 100 days has taken me well over two hundred- ever have that happen to you? Sometimes it’s all my fault. Procrastinating because I’d rather watch Netflix for hours. Sometimes, like with this devotional, I think it’s because Jesus knew I’d need to read something on a particular day, so He gets me to push it off till then. The devotional? #100daystobrave. The day? Day T E N. Like I said- wayyy behind schedule. 🙈 . But here’s what convicted me today. I’ve been a five minute devotional kinda girl for the better part of a season. Sticking to the studies I know isn’t going to take me longer than seven minutes a day because (honestly) I don’t want to get up in the morning. . But today, reading day ten of this book I should have already finished, my soul was pierced: Lead people with the way you live. . So here’s the honest to goodness, open + real truth. Sometimes there are seasons where you’re that five minute devotional girl because you’ve put way too much on your plate (like me). Sometimes it’s because you just want to sleep (like me). I want you to know that, that is 100% okay- but we shouldn’t ever stay there long. . Because in order to lead with the way we live, we need to be relentlessly pursuing after Jesus for more than just five minutes a day. . So here’s to kicking my five minute devotional season + setting my alarm clock across the room so I can relentlessly pursue Jesus + better serve YOU. Because that’s what He’s called me to do- lead with the way I live. #therelentlesspursuitjourney #thisistherelentlesspursuit . . . #butfirstjesus #lovewell #pursuejesus #bedeeplyrooted #walkingreflections #faithblogger #lampandlight #dignityandgrace #chasinggrace #vsco #vscocam #pursuewhatmatters #soulscripts #liveloved #shereadstruth #pursuewhatislovely #dailygrace #heartpursuits #thatsdarling #beautifulmess #bellaroseblogs #topknotsandjesus

Conversely then, when in I find in my heart some lack of peace or trust, my simple prayer can be: show me what aspect of Your character I’m not seeing correctly, Lord. I want more of You.

🌟Jesus isn’t dazzled when you go across an ocean. He’s wowed when you go across the street.”🌟 - Bob Goff I LOVE this reminder 🙌 I have a tendency to overthink and get in my own way when it comes to serving others. The Lord simply loves it just as much when we serve those right in front of us. Perhaps a neighbor right across the street, the widow next door, or the single mom who pushes her stroller around the neighborhood alone every evening. We may never even know their specific situation if we don’t start the conversation. Ask questions if you don’t know what else to say. You could very easily make their day ☀️ Matthew 25:40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

Today was a doozy. I didn’t get enough sleep. I had an all-day event that started out rough. And I got a call that repairing my car would be $1,000+ fix. But then my husband picked me up from my long day and changed my perspective (swipe left 😂). _ Reality is, I have a bed to sleep in. I have a great job. I have a hilarious husband who also has a car so we can still get around and even make priceless memories together. And thanks to our planning through the @daveramsey baby steps, we have the funds to fix my car. _ Life is full of mishaps that aren’t great. But they are always full of blessings to be grateful for. If you’re having a rough one too, I’m here for you friend. 🙋🏽‍♀️ #whyyoudointhat #ourfriendwhitney #hesthebest

God remains ACTIVE in our lives even when it feels as though He has fallen silent. Stressful situations can drive us to inappropriate responses. Instead of pressing the PANIC button (which is usually the first thing we do), we should REST in God, RECALL His faithfulness and TRUST Him for the future. God remains active in our lives even when it feels as though He has fallen silent. We often spend our prayer time by "talking" to God (Guilty as charged) without spending any time just waiting in "silence" to see what God may have to say to us. We're so busy with talking "to" God instead of walking "with" and/or "hearing" from God that we miss what He's trying to tell us or we're "blocking" or "ignoring" what He's trying to tell us (which can cause consequences too). I am finding out more and more that "LISTENING" to God is ESSENTIAL to "walking" with God!

As I sat down this week and began to read the book of Hosea, I was awestruck by the reminder of God’s unconditional love. As the story goes, Hosea follows the Lord’s command and commits himself to Gomer, an unfaithful woman known for her sin. Forsaking image and pride, Hosea loves her as God loves his people and shows her unconditional love even amidst her unfaithfulness to him. • I was brought to tears with the reminder that God seeks us in our darkest places, commits himself to us, and makes us his own, even when we waver from him. • However, as the chapters go on, I also found myself sobered by an unexpected turn: “For Israel has forgotten his Maker and built palaces.” (ESV 8:14) “They made kings, but not through me. They set up princes, but I knew it not.” (ESV 8:4) • Just a mere four chapters after our story with Hosea and Gomer, Hosea is preaching to Israel as they are turning their back on God and following their desires over their faithfulness to God. • Written by @msoliviahall • Photographer @sam_my_antha • Click the link in bio to read more! ❤️

Dear depressed Christian: I want you to know that I am SO proud of you. The way you try your best to make it to church some days, and how you you push yourself to get out of bed on those hard mornings. I love you so much!! I know there are some other Christians that may tell you things like “that’s just a demon you need to cast out” or “you better not kill yourself or you going straight to hell” or other things that sound insensitive and completely tone-deaf. _____________________ But LISTEN TO ME: I know how hard it is to try and pull yourself out of a pit, or “encourage yourself in the Lord,” or anything else that involves YOU having to put in so much work when you can barely even breathe sometimes. That’s why I want you to muster up all the strength you can, and fall at the feet of Jesus. HE hears your cries for help. HE is the one that brings us out of these pits of despair. And HE will set YOUR feet on solid ground and make your steps secure. _____________________ Those steps may lead you to a great therapist, or to the ending of a bad relationship, or even to a new church. But I promise you that if you allow Him to, God will take your cries of desperation and turn them into the lyrics of a brand new song of praise that will forever be on your lips. And as you share your story, you’ll give others the strength they need to fall at His feet too. (Isaiah 40:1-3) My DMs stay open if you need me fam ❤️

Next time you feel weak in yourself, ask Jesus to give you joy in the midst of the pain. His joy is our strength and with His help, we overcome! #droptheumbrella

The key to living and thriving as a child of God is all about trusting Jesus! 🙌🏼When we only trust ourselves or our circumstances, we will ultimately let ourselves down. Jesus is calling us to trust in HIM! 🙏🏼My latest video with @lightworkers is linked in my bio 💗@nicoleweider

God is providing: bought my new (to me) car, have a meeting for an internship at exactly the time I was hoping for (3:30 pm here, 8:30 pm there), and I’m finally seeing my efforts for ministry since coming home from school are bearing fruit. I’m so freakin happy. Not the “scream at the top of your lungs, laugh till you can’t breath, smile till your cheeks hurt” happy, but the kind of happy that brings tears to your eyes because what you’ve hoped for is finally now. It is now. Fulfillment of prayer and long-awaited hope is an unspeakable joy. The goodness of God is so real to me.

"The Bible is God’s Word, and if we ignore it, our lives will be morally and spiritually impoverished. Just as we need food and water to grow and be physically healthy, so we need the 'food' and 'water' of God’s Word to grow and be spiritually healthy." —Billy Graham . When I saw this quote, I felt it to be adequately true in my own life. I’ll be the first one to admit that there are days when my Bible reading gets pushed to the back burner and ultimately not done. I will also say I can tell a difference in my mind, heart, attitude, and soul on the days when I don’t read my Bible. This Word the Lord has so graciously given us is alive! It is meant to nourish us spiritually, and to guide us through this dark sinful world we are living in. . While I’ll never be perfect in this area of my life, I want to strive to be more committed in it. I am so thankful for this simple but profound quote. Let’s dig deeper into His word together. #itssimplytuesday

Its winter in Sydney, Australia and here at #sheseeks we've been thinking about the tenderness of winter seasons. The seasons of growth, purification and tenderness of heart in order to truly BLOOM and FLOURISH at the right times. Growth feels uncomfortable. The desire is to rush through it. To push against it. To self soothe or escape. But can we be women who are strong enough to find the grace in the journey. To be willing to sit in the growth and get our hearts right before God first. Knowing - that deep down Inner knowing - that there isno safer place then the centre of His love. We love these tender words of David, "The fountain of your pleasure is found in the sacrifice of my heart before you. Because you favour Zion, you will be the wall of protection around Her" (Psalm 51). Dear one💗Believing God will hold so lovingly your heart and be a wall of sweet protection around you. No offering to the Lord in any season will be wasted. And especially in any winter season, He is seeding just the right offering within you ready to BLOOM in Spring 🌹 . . Are you going through a winter season? We are opening some one on one mentoring & coaching sessions to help guide you in the journey. Because we know that so much is possible for you, sometimes we just need wise counsel &-fresh inspiration for the journey. If this feels like you, say hello at joanne@sheseeks.com.au xx
