“how nice it’d be if we could try everything.
i’m serious, let’s make a list and just begin.
“what about danger?” so what. “what about risk?”
let’s climb this mountain before we cross that bridge! ‘cause i’m restless, i’m restless, i’m restless
for whatever comes next.

but i want to be here.
truly. be. here.
to watch the ones that i love bloom.
and i want to make room
to love them through and through and through 
and through the slow and barren seasons too.

i feel hope
deep in my bones
tomorrow will be beautiful.

and i’m ready, God i’m ready, oh i’m ready,
restless and hungry, but i’m ready
for whatever comes next.” ▪️
although I am not an enneagram seven (two representing thx✌🏻) but this song by @sleepingatlast has been echoing in my heart for the last few months and it’s been louder and louder as the year has been coming to an end. 🖤 #allthefeels

Today is the second Sunday of Advent. . “For God loved the world in this way: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”
‭‭John‬ ‭3:16-17‬ ‭CSB
. “Therefore, be imitators of God, as dearly loved children, and walk in love, as Christ also loved us and gave himself for us, a sacrificial and fragrant offering to God.”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭5:1-2‬ ‭CSB‬‬

hi friends! happy #fridayintroductions! this is a little bit of a wildcard for my little instagram account here because usually it’s just a collection of things I think are pretty and a space to hold quotes and all the bits of what makes life beautiful, but there’s been a lot of new faces around here so I thought I’d say hello. hi. so glad you’re here. if you were here in real life, I’d be giving you a hug about now.
▪️ If you don’t know me, hi I’m just a twenty year old who doesn’t know what she’s doing is just happy to be here and wants to live it to the fullest. I’m probably too passionate about a good cup of coffee, wear too much black, go barefoot whenever it is socially acceptable (and let’s be real, sometimes when it’s not 🤷🏼‍♀️), and I’m a sucker for the nostalgic.
▪️ I’m probably a workaholic and it’s probably in my genetics (thanks parents 😘), but honestly I’m the happiest with a to-do list (and usually multiple). I work for a nonprofit that totally has my heart, @delightandbe. And it’s grown my passion for Jesus, deep community, discipleship, and creativity in a million ways and wow I just feel so blessed.
▪️ I don’t really know how to write about this season of life right now. It’s been wildly wonderful and gloriously mundane. I feel like I’ve hit that stage in adulthood where I’m entirely shocked by how quickly time goes by so the fact that 2019 is right around the corner is wild. I’ve been spending some time over the last few days really digging into what the Father is speaking for 2019 and getting practical with some goals and dreams. Did anybody have a word for 2018? I’d love to hear it and hear what ways you feel like it shaped your year! 👇🏻😘

9 times out of 10 you find me with something that has a bike on it.
I haven’t been posting my reading for the past couple days but I’m on day 6! Chapter four really spoke to me, as I struggle with wickedness, chapter four touched me. So did chapter six, chapter five confused me, so I need to reread it. -#random #decemberchallenge #proverbs #womenwhobelieveingod #notibutchrist #letssupporteachother #womensupportwomen #bicycle #coffee #shortpost

Have you ever desperately needed God to speak to you? to give you guidance? to speak loud as to what you need to do in a difficult situation? But all you hear is..silence. In those moments we question whether God still speaks to us, whether we have strayed too far away for Him to hear us or whether He really exists.
God does exist! And he still speaks to us today! Often through an inner voice, an audible voice (someone telling you exactly what you needed to hear) or a mental impression. He still speaks!

When God seems silent, open up His words spend time I prayer and listen for His voice. Sometimes God choosing not to answer you at that time (not a no, not a maybe not a yes...just nothing) is His way of testing your faith. Will you still trust in Him even when you cannot hear Him at a time you need Him most? Will you still trust Him today?

Sometimes God allows you to be placed in a situation where it requires you to turn to Him and Him alone.... You can try everything; professionals, counsel from family and friends, self-help books, social media and the internet etc, even wise counsel from good Christian friends, but none of these has ever been, nor will it ever be a substitute for the Great Counselor Himself... God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit; the Devine trinity that are One in Purpose and One in Thinking.

What are you going through?
Jesus is the Only one who can see you through it. Why don't you turn to Him today?
DM us for any prayer requests and we will pray with you. 🙏 #GodStillSpeaks_official #godstillspeaks_official #speaklife #verseoftheday #godslove #stillgod #notibutchrist #trust #faith #lovequotes #hope #instachristian #instaquote #instagood #instachrist #instalove #god #love #grace #spiritualtest #spirituality #christianitytoday #youth #youthfulchristians #advent

Today’s Christmas Carol is “Angels We Have Heard in High”. . “The Christmas carol "Angels We Have Heard on High" was originally written by James Chadwick but played to music from the song 'Les Anges Dans Nos Campagnes'. The French carol translates as "The Angels in our Countryside" and was originally created in Languedoc, France despite not knowing who the original composer was. The song meaning is about Jesus Christ as a newborn child and the many angels singing and praising his birth.”

I’m so thankful I have found something that is pushing me! Normally I would give up if I was feeling any less than 100% myself. But on my drive home today I prayed for God to give me the strength to read today, since I was a lazy bum and slept in right till the last second 🤭. I’ll never do that again (at least during this challenge). I feel more refreshed when I read in the morning, granted it’s only day 3 but seriously I was dragging today.
I recommend anyone who is struggling financially, or with trust issues to read Proverbs 3, I’m not saying everything will be fine and dandy after but MAN you will feel better. So many times we get caught up in the Fancy life, wanting all the money, when really it doesn’t go with you when you die, the real riches come after.
TRUST: who has trust issues??? Give them all to God trust in him for EVERYTHING, though not just the hard or scary stuff or the easy give it ALL to him, and know he is the one who can help you.
My journaling was short but man I learned ALOT!

currently back on American soil and never been more aware that I am. 🙈 but making a major work day out of my freakishly long travel day, so don’t mind me I’ll just be over here working and power napping and wishing I was back with @callielindsey and the cappuccinos. ✌🏻// scenes from Rome

Today is the first Sunday of Advent.
.
“The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; a light has dawned on those living in the land of darkness.
For a child will be born for us,
a son will be given to us,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
He will be named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.
The dominion will be vast,
and its prosperity will never end.
He will reign on the throne of David and over his kingdom,
to establish and sustain it with justice and righteousness from now on and forever. The zeal of the Lord of Armies will accomplish this.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭9:2, 6-7‬ ‭CSB

December 1st • No holiday decorations up. Nothing exciting to post. Enjoying the IG filters on my face. Kind of wishing that life came with filters; something to put some sparkle and shine on to share with the world. And then it hit me, I Do have something sparkly and shiny to share with the world. It has very little to do with me, and everything to do with my savior! For apart from Him, I have nothing, yet because of Him I have everything. An everlasting joy in spite of my circumstance: Jesus! Because of Jesus, who is the Christ, and the work done at the cross, I am given a salvation. I am adopted eternally and have promises as an heir to not only believe in, but also partake. That excites me! Remembering who I am... I’m not my illnesses, I’m not a ball of accomplishments or failures, I am not the sum of what this worn out leather comprises; I am adopted, loved, being sanctified, and being prepared for God’s glory and my good. All because Jesus paid it all... “And when before the throne I stand in him complete "Jesus died my soul to save" my lips shall still repeat”.

Well today is the first day of the last month in 2018!!!! Where did this time go, December 1 is always an interesting day for me, I really think about how it’s the first of the last. It reminds me about my salvation the day I got saved was the first day of my new life and my last day of my old life.
I have decided to do a December challenge, and read a chapter of Proverbs everyday and focus on my praying.
This morning, I was rushing, -and as I started praying, I started singing and got all off track (prayer ADD is real y’all I’m serious) then I left and went to grab some coffee, and I sat and really focused on my prayer (how did I stay focused in a busy Dunkin’ but couldn’t focus in the silence of my home?) Today chapter 1: it really spoke to me I’ve been telling myself I really want to study the Bible and understand it, today I read about wisdom and fear! Having knowledge is important , being wise will help me, I shall fear the Lord. But the knowledge of the Lord I have will protect me from the fear.
It’s not a riddle it’s quite simple.
I can’t wait to see how much I grow this month! Ps. NIV is hard to read 🤭

I don’t even have the worlds to begin to capture the charm and beauty of this place. it’s forever going to hold a piece of my heart, that I am convinced of. ❤️

the Amalfi color palette has got me in my feelings. 👌🏻 so sad to be leaving this little bit of paradise today! 😭 we’ve had multiple cappuccinos a day, gelato every night, and honeycomb, fresh mozzarella and the best lemon pound cake for breakfast every day. the baristas at our hotel brought us both our cappuccino order exactly like we wanted without having to ask first this morning. and one of the local shop owners recognized us from being around the last few days, so i guess we could get used to this life. 💁🏼‍♀️

Who is already setting their new year resolutions??? I haven’t yet, I can’t admit to myself that this year Is about to be over 🤭. Instead I’ve made a baby goal to finish this year out strong, and go into the new year focused.
Who wants to join me in setting yourself up for success going into the new year? I’m challenging myself, to read all of Proverbs, a chapter a day during December and to really dive into studying this book, I want to focus on my prayer skills, not to have the best sounding prayer but to really pray to talk to God. I can admit I have prayer ADD.... and I want to fix that.

So who would like to do this with me, I’m not a pro or business, I’m just a girl who wants to learn more about God.
