In case you don’t know about it, I want to invite you to check out my “micro-blog” posts on Instagram and Facebook. These posts are snapshots of living a life of love in everyday, authentic life! With these photos, I share encouragement to live and love well as we grow our relationship with God – and out of that we live the full live and love people.
When you think back on this past year, what comes to mind?
I have opened my curtains many mornings this past year, thinking on the verse, “Pray continually, being watchful in it with thanksgiving,” (Colossians 4:2). I want to keep choosing a heart posture of watching to see God at work! But as 2019 ends, I don’t yet see the answer to prayer in this area of need, and this year ends without closure.
What have you been praying? In what area of your life is this year coming to a close without answers?
I did something on a whim while driving home from dropping the girls off at school recently. On dark and cloudy morning, in the distance I saw the sun gloriously breaking through clouds over the Corvallis foothills … and I kept driving!
What is it that you reach for? How do you compare yourself with others? Maybe with appearance, home, relationships, role, position, involvement?
Our family has moved twice in the last few years, to a new place where I was not known. I have felt the temptation to be known for how I look, what I can do, and who I know – and been keenly aware of my lack of involvement and connections. While this has been hard, it has been a wonderful opportunity to journal and explore my heart with Jesus. So, I share this post with you…
As I walked up the street with our mail, I noticed how two fall trees beautifully frame our home. It reminded me of this series of posts I wrote a couple years ago. Because I am passionate about creating a home that is intentional, authentic, and Christ-centered, I want to share them again!
I have been thinking about patience and perseverance, with the fall crops being harvested and as verse from James 5 keeps coming to mind.
In my life, there are things I am praying and waiting for over time and the answers don’t seem to come quickly. Are you experiencing this in your life in some way, too?
