“Like muscles, Hope is made by rising, again and again, lifting the weight of dark that’s conspiring to flatten us with the strength of His promises that’s certain to carry us.”

Needed this today: “Hope is not some elusive lottery ticket for the lucky, but hope is the fiery torch the faithful raise in a life-grip to burn back the ugly face of the dark so they can see their promised land —

and the welcoming face of God.” — Ann Voskamp

“May you never steal, lie, or cheat, but if you must steal, then steal away my sorrows, and if you must lie, lie with me all the nights of my life, and if you must cheat, then please cheat death because I couldn't live a day without you.” PC: @trekandbloom

It is a fight to believe what God says about me, to love and accept the way God made me, to do what God called me to do, even when it’s not convenient or easy or applauded.

I don’t fight that fight alone. I walk with a squad of women warriors I would be honored to enter any battle with, some near, some far.
Sometimes it takes us so long to realize we need people and needing people doesn’t make us weak.

Just looook at this sweet daughter of mine, well, ours! 😉
She is a full-time missionary currently over in California in YWAM. God has brought her on many adventures this past year and it has been so amazing to see Him at work in her heart and life. ❤️ The next adventure He is bringing her on is in January where she will be leading a Discipleship Training School that is outdoors focused. 🌲That means she’ll be backpacking in the winter. ❄️ She is in need of God’s provision through His people to make that happen. Outreach will take place on a medical ship in South America and she will also be needing to pay for airfare. 🚢 ✈️ So, here’s how it works: You can pick a square to donate that amount and once all of these are crossed off she will be able to purchase everything she needs to fulfill this calling! 😍🙌🏼 For example: box “$2” would be a one time $2 donation and so on. You can message her if you’d like details on how to participate or more info about her trip. 👌🏼 Thank you all so much! 😭💓 She is such a blessing to so many.

“You always have options.

Either the the hard things help you turn more toward more Him — or the hard things make you grow more bitter toward Him.

You can choose to be bitter. Or you can choose to be Beloved.

You can choose to grow angry. Or you can choose to grow more in love. Wilderness can be where God woos you and floods can be where you sink into the expanse of His love.”

Grabbed my trusty Dr Pepper chapstick, my tripod, my cute, new Free People sweatpants from @lunaandeverest (soooo cozy! 🔥🔥🔥) and drove up to the lake. The drive was made that much sweeter by Mumford and Sons “I Will Wait” blasting loudly as I cruised through the forest...sigh...good day. 🌲🍂🎶🚣🏼‍♀️ 👌🏼

Loving this AIP recipe book so much! We really enjoyed the Lamb (we used pork) Meatballs with Garlic and Spinach recipe last night. Thank you @mickeytrescott for all the love you put into this cookbook and all you continue to do for the Hashi/Autoimmune community. Much love! My tummy thanks you. 🙏🏼

“Simply put, contentment is not natural, it’s a learned behavior and a choice. “…I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.” (Philippians 4:11b ESV)

But if we can work to preserve it each day, stop it from slipping through the cracks, we will find a surprising byproduct waiting for us.

Deep inside a heart that can find contentment regardless of heartache, disappointment, rejection, or failure, is my beautiful friend, joy.

It’s in contentment that we find authentic joy.

Joy may not always be full of laughter, but she most assuredly she offers comfort in spite of our circumstances or position in life. Every time.

Are you capturing the small moments of contentment offered each day, week or month?

Or are you letting them fade into obscurity?

Catch them! Hold on to them!

Let them be your anchor.”

“There are in this world blessed souls, whose sorrows all spring up into joys for others; whose earthly hopes, laid in the grave with many tears, are the seed from which spring healing flowers and balm for the desolate and the distressed.”

“Don’t think God cannot change your heart, if not your circumstances. It’s what happens when you grab the Word by the horns, and wrestle it into the dirt of all that it means to be human.

That’s the stuff of which courage is made.

William Carey once said, “The future is as bright as the promises of God.” Your future is bright.

Hope is written all over your horizon.

And if you’re not sure; if your soul is feeling dry; if you are weary of persevering through a tough trial and want to throw in the towel, remember, change is possible.

Tuck a healthy handful of God’s promises into your heart, and start living them out...” — Joni Eareckson Tada
