Chasing Waterfalls.

I feel like I am on the edge of something.
Something that combines all the things my heart loves.
I have lots to learn & seek the Lord on. 
I don’t know what it is going to look like
but I must get in the water and see where
it takes me…..

Picture perfect

I just love this picture.
This is what I want my life to look like.
Have you thought about that? 
If you had to have just one picture of what you want your life to look like..what would it be?

Bridge over troubled waters

A bridge has been built between my unstable past and my solid future. 
It is up to me to walk across it.
As I walk, I look down seeing the dreams and ideas that have fallen below.
My hope can no longer reside in those things. 
Not in a marriage, not in a degree, not in a cute house with great appliances. 
My hope won’t rest in a great wardrobe or the best body or the most wonderful travels.
My hope is in the Lord. 
My dreams have been too small. 
My vision cloudy.
 And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her by the LORD’
-Luke 1:45

Happily Ever After

My life is turning into quite the fairy tale. 
I still feel like Cinderella pre Prince Charming days.
A castle is in the future but a dream right now.
Time to get cleaning.

What if…

 What if the Lord gave you a vision that was so big and crazy and perfect. 
What if the only way for the vision to manifest was through keeping your eyes solely on Him and being obedient to all He asks of you along the journey.
What if you stayed focused and determined and ignored the voices of fear and doubt.
What if you had ruthless faith and protected that vision with all of your heart.
I think lives would be forever changed.
I think hearts would be healed. 
I think souls would be set free.
I think the Lord would be pleased….

Best buds

I hear friends talk about marrying their best friend. 
Sounds like a great idea.
Maybe one day..

Sweet Bed

This week has been a bit rough as I have been sick for most of it.  I feel much better now and it is good to be back in society.
The Lord has been speaking to my heart a lot this week and I am really excited to see how things manifest. 
We have a choice when it comes to walking in obedience. We have a part to play. I think sometimes, we  wait for God to do something when He is waiting for us to move and be obedient to what He has already told us to do. We have to take a step. It is scary.
I am currently in a situation where, from the natural eye, there seems to be no way out. The cool thing about following the Lord is that when there seems to be no way…He makes a way. 
The hard thing about watching miracles happen in your life is that…well, you have to wait. You have to trust. Things have to been against you and then, by God’s grace, things work out. 
This.is.not.fun.
NOT. FUN!
But is it awesome after the fact when the Lord, in fact, comes through. 
So much is going on and so much of it I can’t see. 
The Lord has been nothing but faithful throughout this journey I have been on. 
He promises not to leave me. 
He won’t leave you either. 
He has not brought you this far to leave you. 
Keep pressing on; through the pain, through the uncertainty.
The Lord spoke this to me this week:
‘I will not leave you. I have not brought you this far to leave you. I will not leave you. I am not man who will leave you. I am your God. When you feel like you can go no further…keep going. It is through that push; just like the last pushes of labor, when you feel you can push no more, that you birth the promises I have for you.’

(I am pushing. We might have to do a c-section though. Get this thing OUT!!!)



The drive

There is a place that I am trying to get to. I have no clue how to get there..I just know that I am suppose to be there. 
If you have ever had the opportunity to drive from, say, Missouri to Colorado, then you can understand my pain. 
Kansas has some great basketball and people but the drive…oh..my..boring. 
And not just boring but hours and hours and hours of boring. It feels like you are never going to make it and you think about turing back often. 
There is a place that I am trying to get to. The only way to get there is to keep going and to ask for directions along the way. 
Have you ever felt like you have been driving and driving yet you still can’t see the outline of the mountains? 

Next please..

I will gladly and confidently close this chapter of my story. 

2 things.

I was made for short hair and the camera.
