Growing up, my family used to go canoeing for a summertime activity. We had a lot of fun doing this together. My sister would joke around and say it was our "family bonding time." My dad likes to think of every possible scenario, so he gathered us together to advise us in on a few (or several) things.
Here's the thing about me.....I don't post for the likes or follows. Yep, you read that right and if you have read some of my captions I am sure you can tell. My end goal is not to be Instagram famous or anything famous. I kinda turned down fame and fortune already. Money and fame hold no power over my soul.
“It won't be worth the wait.” Whatever that "thing" is, it is always worth waiting on God for. Come to think of it, every time I have chosen to wait on God, He has always exceeded my expectations! "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways." (Isaiah 55:8-9)
I grew up playing sports. I tried almost everything-basketball, volleyball, cheerleading, golf, track, and even ballet. I took up an interest in basketball, therefore my dad thought it would be a wonderful idea for me to play summer ball with the high school kids, even though I was still in junior high. At first, I felt extremely intimidated and was very aggravated that he would do this to me.
Have you ever been "hangry?" The feeling when you waited too long to eat so you are past the point of starving and now you just feel famished and irritable?! Have you ever been to the grocery store hungry and you are just like buying everything in sight because it all sounds delicious? You came in for one thing and then leave with a cart full?
I have never been camping or backpacking through the mountains, however, when I was worshiping the Lord the other day, I saw myself doing just that. I was in the middle of nowhere surrounded by gigantic mountains. It was so picturesque. From a helicopter view, the path was a winding one.
"Why do good things happen to bad people?" I got a message from a girl the other day asking for some words of encouragement. She was looking around seeing people that have cheated and treated others so badly and have what seems like the "dream life."
The vision you have for your life (from God) may cause others to think you are crazy. I know this from personal experience. It's ok, they don't have to "catch the vision," for it isn't for them, it is for you. Sometimes it is nice to have others get on board, but sometimes God calls us to stand alone.
Hello 34 🎈I’m so thankful for another year the good Lord has blessed me with. I’m pretty excited about this “new year.” I can’t wait to see what He has in store for me.....Since my favorite number is 20, I thought I would share 20 random facts about me you may or may not know.
When I was little, sometimes my dad would let me sit in his lap while he drove down the backroads in Ohio. I pretended I was driving with my tiny hands gently placed over his. When I got a little bit older, he would let me sit in the driver seat, while he held the steering wheel from the passenger side
"Maybe she needs to just get ahead of God and have Him bless her efforts." I got wind of this statement (referring to me) and all I could do was smile. Ok, I might have chuckled on the inside a little. Get ahead of God?!! This would be a travesty.
People like to put others in “boxes.” We think that because they are “this,” then they must be “that.” We can be so quick to judge others and by doing that, we miss out on getting to know people that may not be so different from us after all. Yes, I was a model. Yes, I had my picture taken quite often, but no, I was/am not vain or into myself.
