Anticipate what’s to come.

Anticipate what’s to come.

Have you ever noticed how close anticipation and anxiety are?!? Usually, we get anxious about what’s to come, how we are going to handle a situation, an unexpected turn of events, or just uncertainty in general.

We feel out of control and we totally freak.

But why do you think that is?? How do we flip that switch and turn what we are anxious about into something we are anticipating? How can we trade in nervousness for excitement?

By trusting that your God is a God that SHOWS UP.

I know, it’s simple. And far easier said than done. But isn’t that what the crux of it all comes back to?

What if you treated opposition as an opportunity to see Him move rather than a window of defeat?

What if you embraced uncertainty with anticipation of what He will do rather than fear of how you will handle it?

What if curveballs because catalysts for our faith instead of avenues to our anxiety?

I will bet everything I own and all that I am on this: God will show up. He already is.

He’s working.

He’s moving.

He’s sure and He’s steady and He’s present.

Get EXCITED for what’s to come!!!!!!!!

If it’s from His hand, it will be good.

Have a GREAT Tuesday!

“But as for me, I will watch expectantly for the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation My God will hear me.” -Micah 7:7

“Therefore, return to your God, Observe kindness and justice, And wait for your God continually.” -Hosea 12:6

I have always known how important it is to start your day in ways that provide energy, strength, and focus for the hours that follow…but it felt so difficult. It required some changing of habits and some rearranging of my schedule. It...

Goodbye to guilt & receive His grace.
Goodbye to guilt & receive His grace.

May 30, 2018

I used to believe that guilt was holy in a way. It showed that I knew what Jesus was asking of me in a moment or that I knew something I should’ve done or been, and I regretted not being/seeing/doing that. Maybe it’s guilt over not being the best daughter you can be. Or brother, wife, husband, friend, sister, etc. Maybe it’s those words you said about a coworker in the heat of the moment that you didn’t...

I remember sitting in a conference a couple years ago and the speaker said, “Tell yourself out loud! Speak it over yourself but give it volume!” And I’m thinking, “I have never done that, consistently at least.” I was also thinking, “Is that like a true difference-maker? The whole giving it volume, making sure your own ears hear it thing?” Well, joke’s on me because I have noticed, over the big and the small things, that when I...
