The grace we’ve been shown is not because of our own doing, but because of God’s great love for us. He extends grace upon grace! I love how my devotional stated it this morning “God doesn’t measure out grace in teaspoons.” This morning as I sat in this hammock overlooking Hawaiian mountains fading into the sea, I couldn’t help but be overwhelmed by His love and grace! Nothing I’ve done would make me deserve such a beautiful sight- but God knows our needs, He knows our hearts, and He desires to pour out His blessings. This grace is truly grace much bigger than teaspoons!
Who wants a muddy hug?! I ran another Spartan Sprint this morning and pushed myself harder than I knew possible.. ended up finishing 14th in the Elite heat! It’s these moments that make me so overwhelmingly thankful for the physical abilities God has given me, even to just compete in an event like this. “And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us... for He who promised is faithful.”
As an entrepreneur it’s easy to run in the direction of every open door. Unfortunately that might make what I do a little confusing to those who want to take advantage of my services. This book “Story Brand” is helping me out big time!! Showing me how to clarify my message so that people will know and understand. #somuchahead #clarifythemessage #serveothers #livepurposefully
Lord, open my eyes to the needs around me more than my own needs. This is one of the prayers I have begun praying daily with my ladies of the @sheworkshisway community. If you’re in business or serve in any capacity, would you join me in this prayer? I think it would really change the way we interact with and love people.
A lot of people take pictures of their food because it looks good... I took this picture for a different reason.
For my entire life I’ve struggled with food. However not in the way I see most people struggle with it. And for that reason I’ve mostly kept quiet without telling my story. But here goes- The real reason why I took this picture was because it’s a picture of victory from under-eating. Not having the desire to eat and fuel my body with the nutrients it needs. Or skipping meals because I forgot... or didn’t have an appetite. Which sometimes left me really tired or susceptible to sickness.
All that to say, I hope you know that your struggle (no matter how big or small) is significant. It may take admitting it to someone and being vulnerable about it. Just know you’re not alone. And I’m here if you want to talk.
Demands of the day pull us in many directions. And if we aren’t purposeful, they’ll even distract us from our main priorities. Speaking from a place of honesty... I’ve been in that place for quite some time now. Doing lots of “good things”. Though not able to focus on the MAIN things God wants for me in this season. I’m recognizing that and making some serious changes around here. So if we get a chance to talk, will you ask me how it’s going? And please let me know if this is something God’s laying on your heart as well. I’d love to walk with you in the process and hold each other accountable.
Mid way through this week and my heart still BURSTS thinking about time spent with so many like minded business women this past weekend. Usually I come home from conferences exhausted and then crawl into my introvert hole... but not with the @sheworkshisway #swHwNarrow conference! Many of us knew each other from our online community, but gathering together, praying together, and learning together took it to another level. Love these ladies more than ever!
I have countless takeaways from this past weekend at the @sheworkshisway #swHwNarrow conference. And I was reminded in so many ways that my efforts, without God, will fall flat... but WITH God anything is possible. He wants to bless my business, my life, my relationships. I must lay down fear and pride and seek His strength over my own. Each and every day.
Let's not wait until November to start being thankful. Each day we wake up is another opportunity to pursue our passions, use our gifts, to love others, and to glorify God in all we do. Don't let today pass you by without finding at least ONE thing your thankful for. ---> Will you share with me what your thankful for in the comments below?
I literally go through a gallon of almond milk a week. (What can I say I love an easy nutritional drink!) So today I decided to try the less conventional method of making it myself- and with great success! It's creamy and oh so tasty! I may still grab it at the store now and then but I think I'm hooked on making it at home. #almondsforthewin
