Acceptable in Thy Sight

I have been thinking about the fear of man, and how easily it creeps into so many areas of our lives. We worry about what people will think, or if people will be upset, or think little of us. Often our issue with insecurity are rooted in our pride. God has put within us a desire for acceptance, but so often we misplace who we seek approval from. Psalm 19:14 says; “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.” We are already accepted by Christ as believers, and now we should constantly be lining up our thoughts and actions with His Word, seeking our approval only in Him. 

I posted these thoughts on instagram this morning, and had lots of people say that they have struggled with the same thing, so in order for us to keep our hearts and minds on Him alone, and be reminded that He is the only one we need to seek approval from I made this lock screen. Feel free to click the image for the full image and then save it to your phone. I hope that it will encourage you to keep your hearts on Him this week.

5 Years

It is hard to believe that it has been 5 years since we said “I do.” In some ways it seems like it was just yesterday, but in so many ways it seems like the past five years have been full of so much living. We met 7 years ago, and we were just kids…19 and 20. In so many ways it feels as if over the last 7 years we have grown up together. We have faced joy more than we could have imagined, and we have faced loss that we never thought we would.

5 years ago we moved to Florida with our suitcases and some wedding gifts packed into a little Mitsubishi, and some Bed, Bath, and Beyond gift cards we used to stock our apartment. We were totally broke, but we didn’t really care. We learned how to have cheap dates, and how to love each other through anything. Somewhere along the way we grew up…it happened slowly and then all at once.

We have lived in two states, and are about to move to a third. We have finished a Seminary degree together, and Jeremy is about to finish his second. We have started a business. We have formed convictions together. We have laughed. We have cried. We have watched a lot of Netflix (including Grey’s Anatomy, West Wing, and all the seasons of 24, 3 times). We have traveled. We have taken turns being the strong one.  We have had two beautiful daughters, and we have had to say goodbye to one. We have loved and we have lost…but we have done it all together.

Marriage is meant to point back to the gospel, to remind us of Christ’s love for us. To show to the world how Jesus loves His Church. To picture God’s covenant love for His people. I pray that our marriage will do just that.

Jeremy, Thank you for being the man that you are. For being there for me through our greatest joys, and through long nights of tears that won’t stop. Thank you for loving me, and for loving our family. Thank you for putting us first and working hard for us. I love you more than I can say.

I do know not you nor your husband, but somehow for the last few months I have drawn close to you on Instagram and began to follow you. You have helped through my darkest hours in my life. You have helped me to love and live again. Your love and faith in God is powerful and being shared in such a wonderful and useful way. I know God is pleased with you, your spirit and your works. I am forever changed. May He continue to bless you, your husband and daughter.

We Have a Hope

I have been thinking a lot lately about our hope, and the fact that apart from Christ we don’t have hope…but in Him, we can hope continually. Because of this great hope that we have in Him we must praise Him. It has been a hard first half of the year, and we have faced things we never imagined we would face, and yet we keep coming back to this truth. God is so good, and we have so much Hope. This life is not always easy, there will be hurt, suffering , and tears. But, our God is Faithful, and in Him we have Hope, we have a future…we have Him.

Click here to get the full size image and then save to your phone as a lock screen to remind you of the hope that we have and the privilege that we have to praise Him.

WHAT I’M LOVING RIGHT NOW #3

I have been loving Coffee recently, I don’t usually need caffeine to get through the day, but the summer has been busy! My secret a dash of cocoa powder in the coffee, and my Give Me Jesus Mug!

I love this short video of what the gospel is, it was played in church a few weeks ago, and it is so powerful.

I have been trying a few different workouts this week, trying to figure out what works best for me. I have been doing a few different things, Pure Barre, Revelation Wellness, and old fashioned running…I would love to know your favorite workouts, even better if they can be done at home!

I found this Yoga Mat for half the price at TJ Maxx…Stella might like it more than me though.

The song, Come to Me, by The Village Church, featuring Lauren Chandler. I can’t really pick a favorite part of this song, the lyrics are amazing, and it has been on repeat for a few days now. Such an incredible reminder that we don’t need to carry our burdens on our own. LOVE it!
