Contempt, Part 1

Stop fighting it. You know what you were called to do. These words have played over and over in my head, and I’m like yeah ok, great, but could you maybe remind me of exactly what that is again? Silence. Fabulous. Has anyone ever felt this way? Like you know there is something you’re supposed

Trust Like a Daughter

What does it look like to trust? Like, really trust. Not vaguely believing in the back of our minds that everything happens for a reason. Not anxiously asking for God’s peace while simultaneously spewing worry and paranoia with every breath. Not posting verse images on social media as if our declaration of belief earns us

Back to the Point

This month. Wow. Just ridiculous. I find myself again on the same merry-go-round ride wondering, seriously, what am I doing here, and why can’t I seem to move forward? I started this blog called, “LoveNcourage” to inspire you (and myself) to live out a life of love, which takes a massive amount of courage in this

Priorities

So, this week has been a real eye-opener for me. The past few months have been a period of extreme growth and spiritual awakening for me. And maybe I got a bit too cavalier about everything. Maybe I let pride get a little bit of a foothold. Maybe I just let anxiety get the better

No Fear

Where God’s love is, there is no fear, because God’s perfect love drives out fear. It is punishment that makes a person fear, so love is not made perfect in the person who fears.  1 John 4:18 The Spirit we receive does not make us slaves again to fear; it makes us children of God. With
