I turn 25 years of age tomorrow and scrolling through my blog I found this post I wrote a little over a year ago. Feels liberating, and I am proud to say that with the exception of very natural looking looking braid extensions I accomplished my goal of no weaves for a year, and it did in fact work. I’ll be sure to write a new post soon about this journey and what it has taught me!
It has been a very long time since I’ve written much of anything important or personal, but sometimes some folks just say the things we feel internally so much better.
Over the past “few” months there have been hills, valleys, calm seas and ocean storms just depending on the day, season, or hour….
"The Lord will comfort Israel again and have pity on her ruins. Her desert will blossom like Eden, her barren wilderness like the garden of the Lord. Joy and gladness will be found there. Songs of thanksgiving will fill the air."
"The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
It’s a new day. Thank you Jesus.
Throughout the Bible, God shows us He is a provider. He tells us not to worry because He knows all our needs. Still, most of us find it hard to trust God when it comes to our job performance, bank account, or relationship status. Why do we struggle entrusting God with our future? How do we learn to live with open hands in a world that tells us to hold on to what we have?
Part I of this series just rocked my world…in a good way. Man, I’ve been so worried about the uncertainty and certainty of a current circumstance, but this was such a great timely word. Consider the source…watch Part 1.
Talking to my friend Janna about some real life matters I’ve been dealing with as of late. Our conversation led us into a discussion about the importance of community, when God straight up dynamite dropped this mind blowing revelation into my head. So here it is and I’ll start with the verse:
I John 4:4
"…He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world"
So if He who is in us is greater than he who is in the world, then we can not fully experience the greatness and goodness of Christ without being in relationship with others. More specifically having people in our lives that also believe in Christ. Ultimately, what dwells in each and every believer is greater than anything in this world. So why not be in community with one another. This is why fellowship and community with other believers is such an important aspect in our faith walk.
