2017 was a year of re-learning my value. i reluctantly allowed someone to genuinely be my friend and stay close to me despite my sometimes extreme efforts to push them away.⠀
it was a year of coming face to face with my insecurities despite all that God had already restored. sometimes even when we are made whole, it’s hard for us to live it out. i still did not fully see myself the way Jesus did. I did not think i was worthy of a pure pursuit and i did not know how to trust a man. i did not think i was worthy of the kind of man i told my friends to wait for (and sometimes i still think i’m not).⠀
but i’ve grown and i’m growing. through the patience and consistent pursuit of one, i’ve been able to behold myself more fully through the lens of Christ.⠀
Holy freaking humbling feeling. i can’t help but think that THIS is why love is so powerful. I’ve often felt the Spirit of God speak to my soul ‘love them to life.’ never did i think someone would love me back to life. may we all be bold enough to not only love but be loved in return.⠀
“Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins.” 1 Peter 4:8

Then there are people who you don't talk to everyday but you know they are there. And when you get back together with them its like nothing ever changed.
You have grown , but with them the music and vine still feels the same.

It’s Black Friday! I spent a bunch of $$ on stuff I had no need for! Woo hoo! I got up early to wander around Target like I do on most afternoons! Score! for real though, I’ve got a twitch on the bottom lid on my right eye that’s been there for a week and I’m ready for a trip to paradise tomorrow
Also happy thanksgiving! I was so busy stuffing my face with my fam yesterday to say how thankful I am for them on here... but I am!
