John 14:27 says, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” One of fave verses. I first heard it from my pastor at church in Chicago. He knew what he was doing when he spoke these very words to me. He was telling me truth as I was leaving my internship to go on a mission trip (never happened, but I can explain later) and I never felt more encouraged. As I read it now, I think and wonder how can I apply it to my every day, ordinary life? Well simple.
I can go out into the world with a fearlessness. There is so much to see and to do for God’s kingdom, there’s no time to be afraid. Whether it physically looks like serving, disciplining myself to sleep and shut my brain off or being a light to people, I have a peace about it. God has given us such a sweet gift.
This peace is different. It will be with me, you and others always. Remember that as you live an adventurous, glorifying, and crazily broken life for God.
P.S. This is my favorite photo I’ve ever taken. When I think about my aesthetic is or how I envision my photos to look like, I picture this. I picture magical vibes. #wildflowerincincy #photography #magicalvibes #cincinnati #ohio #ohiogram #vscocam #vsco #earthy #wildflowers #fieldofflowers #fieldofdreams #allforgodsglory #peace #fearlessgirl #fearlessness #model #cincymodel #beauty
